That is an excellent question for Freedom Scientific, and I have personally never seen anyone from Freedom Scientific on this list.
I'd write Eric Damery directly:

I wonder if the exchange rate has anything to do with the price difference?

I'm in the US, so am pretty unaware of how that works for those of you in other countries.

Since their software is international, it seems like something could be done but I suspect it is the difference in copyright laws etc.

Is there a reason all of their sales seem to only apply in the US?
Jaws is already more expensive in the UK as it is.

Eventually, the SMA option is expected to be phased out, and all JAWS
users will be switched to the annual subscription option, which will
be more profitable for Freedom Scientific.

If you have the SMA, why in the world would you switch to an annual

If I have a SMA with no upgrades, how do I determine when it will
expire, and if I purchase a Home Annual Licence, will it start

 and enter your serial number to check your licensing status. You
will not need a code to receive this discount. It will be
automatically applied when purchasing an ILM or SMA.

OpenBook

Currently, OpenBook software for home use is specially priced at
$195.00, but you can get this price only by calling Freedom
Scientific Customer Service at 800-444-4443.

Pro Licenses

If you have purchased a Pro license for JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion
for use at home, you can receive a 20 percent discount when
purchasing an upgrade and/or SMA. Contact Customer Service at
800-444-4443 to receive this discount. The 20 percent discount will
apply to the Pro software upgrades and SMAs for users who want to
keep their Pro licenses rather than switching to home licenses.
