moderated Re: questions about the home annual license


Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

I'm not sure if you are talking about the Home annual subscription or the SMA license.

The Home annual subscription means that when the year runs out, you either resubscribe for the next year at $90 or you go into Demo mode.
If you had the SMA license, and decide to stop renewing, then it remains a fully functional version of Jaws.

When you decide you want to upgrade the SMA license, you usually have to pay for the years in between that you skipped; though I understand if that adds up to a lot of years, they will work with folks.

I hope that helps.

A question I have on this as well is,
If someone has the renuible license for say, 2019, and they are happy with that, is it less expensive to update the license in 2020, even if that person doesn't want 2020?
I know the annual fee is like 90 dollars, but it seems to me that if there is a newer version out, and the person wants to just keep using 2019, the fee should be less for an older Jaws.

Writing on both at the exact same time, grin, likely not, although I
could very well be listening to two things at the same time. What you
say does make sense, though. However, the licensing issue isn't really
my main concern, since I'm enjoying learning more about the home
annual one at the moment. By the way, I finally remembered to go to
YouTube and search for videos about the home annual license, and I saw
where someone had actually posted one where they activated,
deactivated, and then reactivated the license on one of their
computers. Thus, since I'm naturally curious and with that in mind, I
was able to experiment and find out the answer to my other activation
question. Then, for my purposes, that leaves me with only the changing
email address question, and I see no other way than to contact FS
about that as I do want to have everything with them now at my Gmail address.

Thanks all for your responses.

Vicky,
Are you going to be writing on both machines at the exact same time?

They phrase it that way so you wouldn't be at work and someone else
be at home using your same licensed copy.

Or am I missing something?

Again, asking FS is the best thing to do before making any decisions.

HTH,


Richard

I'll have to go and take a look again, but if memory serves,
technically unless I'm misunderstanding things, the license agreement
says you can have the license activated on up to three computers, but
you are limited to using it on one computer at a time, thus my
wanting to keep the licenses separate.

I believe FS has no problem with you having your SMA Jaws on two
devices.. I know you can have it on your home and work computers,
no problem.

But, all your questions will be best answered by FS staff.

Good luck,

Subject: questions about the home annual license

Of course I can contact Freedom Scientific, and will likely do so
early next week, but I figured I would ask here first just in case.

First, when logging into the portal for the home annual license and
then going to the place to update ones profile, for some reason,
updating the email address doesn't seem to be available. There's a
checkbox to have a reminder sent when it's time to renew the
license, but that won't help a lot if the person has changed their
email address. So am I missing something here, or is it just not
possible to update the email address online?

Second, I just recently purchased a used ElBraille 14 from someone,
and I wanted to have that JAWS license separate from my SMA license
for my main computer, so I could use them both at the same time if I wanted.
That's why my questions now about the home annual license, as I
just activated it for the ElBraille. Never mind, grin, that I've
had this license for some time now, getting it a discount around
convention time last year, and so only have a little over a couple
of months on it left. Anyway, best I can tell, one is able to log
in to the portal and deactivate and active license, or perhaps I
should say an active use of that license. Thus, just out of
curiosity, if I were to log into the portal and deactivate the
ElBraille from another computer or phone, would the ElBraille
automatically go into demo mode on boot up if not connected to the
internet, or would the full license still work until I connected to
the internet? Also, if I were to deactivate the license on the
ElBrai
lle, I'm assuming I could reactivate it again if still during the term
of the license?

My activation questions are more of a curiosity thing, especially
since being used to notetakers and not using a braille display to
work the computer, it took me forever to figure out how to write
the at sign on the ElBraille so I could get logged into the portal
to activate the thing, so I plan to leave it activated. It's going
to be quite a learning curve going from the U2 Mini and occasional
use of the Polaris to the ElBraille, but I'm looking forward to it.
