Yes, turning off automatic updates is a good thing.
I don't know if windows 10 or that newer one, LOL, allow one to select which
updates can be installed through windows update, like we can in earlier

Hi Annabelle!

You woun't hear that from me! I've been the computer industry since 1980
and I have always felt that automatic updates are a very bad idea. The
problem with automatic updates is that you may get an update that does
bad thing to your computer, and while you might be able remove the
update, the automatic update feature will just put it back again. It is
always better to wait a while to see what others are saying about an
update and if the news isn't good, you just don't install it!

What's even more interesting, I run Windows with Automatic Updates turned

I learned the hard way when I updated Windows 7 and it did something funky
that led to mismatched drivers, program incompatibility, and broken

I have a SMA for a professional license, since I use it for work and

don't hold me to that.

As I understand it, JAWS is mine to keep, even if I don't renew the SMA,
but eventually the software won't work as Windows and applications keep
progressing. Like you, I like the idea of owning my copy, even if it
becomes outdated if I don't renew the SMA. The annual license is great
for removing the barrier of entry for new JAWS users, but feels like a
fleeting thing that you lose if you cannot afford the annual license one

If your last SMA was 2002, you may not be able to switch base to even a
professional SMA at this point. You are probably best to call FS Sales
and ask about your situation.

I purchased my SMA with a college trust fund back in 2002, as I was going
to school back then. The SMA was a "Professional" license. I want to try
to change my recent home annual license to a perpetual license, but I'm
not sure how much it would cost to upgrade from one license to another.
Am I right when I hear that a perpetual license never expires?

I used to have an SMA for Jaws, not sure which version of Jaws it was.
My SMA had expired, and rather than renewing the SMA I purchased the
home annual yearly subscription for around $95. In my opinion it's
easier than trying to renew an expired SMA.

Sorry, no can do. Once you have selected the annual license
option, you cannot switch to the SMA option without purchasing JAWS
outright for $950, if you have not previously done so.

I have an Annual license for JAWS 2021, and I'd like to
change it to a perpetual license. Those are the ones that don't
expire, right?
Will it cost me anything? If so, how much. Specifically, I have a
home license for JAWS 2021.
