Good evening Mike,


Just wanted too write, and let you know that your suggestion on the link that you provided for me to install the Jaws update worked. I do have a full license of jaws, but because of a lot of dental      work that I needed some years ago, I had to let my license laps.  When I asked how much it would cost to upgrade, they told me that it would cost $600.00   and that’s why I chose to go with that yearly lease. 


Anyway,  Many thanks for your help,

Hi Albert,


I've never had an annual subscription so I can't answer your question but, there's 1 way to find out if the latest update will install or not.  Click on the link below to download the latest installer and run it to see if this latest update will install or not.


32 & 64 bit download link:
What's new:
Enhancements in JAWS 2021.2012.57 (January 19, 2021)
This update addresses a few key issues that were reported shortly after the January 2021 release.
To download the latest release, click on the link above
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.
list of 8 items
• A new feature was introduced earlier this month, designed to let a user change the volume of JAWS speaking or the system volume itself using a layered
keystroke: INSERT+SPACE, V followed by J for JAWS or S for System. Since this change, Eloquence users reported hearing Ticks when reading and typing, especially
around the letter O. We also had reports of the volume randomly changing when reading documents or web pages. These issues are now resolved.
•  Resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR was not starting the Voice Assistant in JAWS or Fusion.
• The JAWS voice commands to speak faster or slower now adjusts the speech in larger increments.
• Addressed an issue where JAWS was not reading table headings in Excel.
• Added a new JAWS Dictionary entry for "DocuSign."
• When spell checking a document in Word, resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected when navigating by word through the text containing
the error.
• Resolved an issue where attachments were not being reported correctly in the Danish version of Outlook 2019.
• In the Italian version of JAWS, addressed an issue where the keystrokes to access the Braille and Text Viewer layer, as well as the Volume layer, were
not working as expected.
list end


Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Subject: Question regarding yesterdays latest jaws update.


Good morning everyone, 


I would like too ask the following  question as it relates to the latest Jaws update that someone posted yesterday.  Whenever I go to the jaws updates,  It tells me that I have the latest version of jaws installed which came out in out sometime in mid December, that was jaws 2021. Here’s what I’m wondering.  Both me and my girlfriend are using the version of jaws, where we use the    version that is the lease too own one that we pay a subscription for  every year.  Does it make a differents whether or not     the latest updates for jaws if you own the full license of jaws,  or will the latest version    of jaws that came out yesterday, be installed without any problem.
