Hi, Robin. I don't think they are being too cautious. I think that may have been the problem with another user who recently had to do a restore because JAWS lost all the sounds associated with JAWS. That option was introduced to make it easier for those with a lot of settings, but I still make a point of adjusting the settings in a new JAWS version manually. I don't use the JAWS update service either, I download the installer from freedom scientific and install it from that executable file.

Subject: migrating or not migrating settings
I purchased Leasy and am reading through the installation documentation. It starts by talking about installing JAWS. The directions say that we should never migrate settings from a previous version of JAWS when installing a new copy. I get that we run the risk of bringing over some setting that perpetuates a problem, but the advice in this Hartgen documentation is worded so strongly to not migrate. I’ve migrated settings without issues so far. What are your thoughts? Do you think they are just being overly cautious?
