Re: How to make jaws read number of items

Ann Byrne
 

In most cases, insert+tab will read the current item, plus how many of how many.

I hope this works in your case.

Gerald,

 

Good points.

Certainly don’t want to speak for Eric, but I think he is alluding to the license being cheaper for those not current as they would no longer need to catch up.

That said, Jaws 2019 just used my last SMA so I went online last night and purchase a SMA for the next two versions, 222020 and 2021) for $120 as that is cheaper than two licenses at $90 for each year.

Also, in two years when I go to the license option, as I think SMA will end, I will only purchase one year at a time for the very reasons you state. Even if there was a small discount I would stick with one year at a time

Gotcha.  But Eric Damery, who has been posting about this new pricing arrangement on another JAWS mailing list, claims that it is cheaper than the SMA arrangement.  How is this possible?  Under the SMA arrangement, let’s calculate the cost for upgrading to JAWS 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.  By my calculation, the SMA route would cost $240, $120 for JAWS 2019 and 2020, and another $120 for JAWS 2021 and 2022.  Under the licensing arrangement, the cost would be $90 for each version of JAWS for a total of $360 for versions 2019, 2020,2021 and 2022.  Over the long run, the new licensing arrangement would be much more expensive.  And what is the advantage of taking out a 5 year license, which would cost $450 versus buying a new license each year for $90 a year?  There is no discount for paying in advance.  Suppose you pay for a 5 year license, and Vispero goes belly up in two years?  Then you’re totally screwed because there would probably be no way to obtain a refund for the years you have not yet used up.  Don’t think Vispero could ever go out of business?  Think again.  It has happened in the past.  Companies that sell products for the blind suddenly go under without notice and leave their customers in the lurch.  And with more and more JAWS users jumping to NVDA, and the fact that Vispero is essentially increasing the cost of upgrading JAWS every year, they could certainly tick off enough customers to go the way of GW Micro, Optalek and other companies that have bitten the dust.

From what I have read, as well as listened to from Freedom scientific staff and podcast, it would cost you $90 and it would be that recurring charge each year to keep a current license to have jaws installed and up to three computers.

I think this is also an offer which would make it much less expensive for somebody who didn’t keep their SMA up-to-date to get current on Jaws. If, for example, somebody was still on Jaws 16 or even earlier they would have to pay several hundreds of Dollars to get current and then another $120 for the SMA. This way they can just subscribe for $90 a year and they are done. What I haven’t figured out yet is if this also applies for new Jaws users, e.g. if you don’t have Jaws at all, can you just pay $90 a year and download/use the latest version of Jaws and as long as you keep you rsubscription active then you can continue to do so? If so then this really is a good option for new Jaws users because instead of paying $900 or whatever Jaws costs + the cost of future SMA’s they would djust pay $90 a year. After 10 years you would have paid $900 which is I believe what Jaws Home costs, if you had bought it for $900 and then you would buy 5 SMA’s at $120/each you would have paid $1,500 after 10 years so if you are a new Jaws user then $90 a year really is a very reasonable price and who knows what happens in 5 or 6 let alpong 8 or 10 years, maybe Jaws won’t exist any more as such, maybe Microsoft buys them out and it gets merged with Narrator into Microsoft and becomes free, I certainly wouldn’t bet on Jaws being the leading screenreader in 10 years any more.

It sounds like it would be a bit more flexible since you don't have to fight with the activation as much if you use a lot of different computers, but otherwise it looks like a way to generate more revenue.  I just renewed my SMa, they will have a little while longer to wait for my extra revenue.

Stay current with the latest version of JAWS, the world's most popular screen reader, with an affordable, annual license now available for home users in the United States. Choose between a one-, three-, or five-year option, with the ability to easily renew your license at the end of your initial term.

With a JAWS Home Annual license you will always have the most up-to-date version of JAWS, and will not have to pay for an upgrade to get new versions when they release � you have access to all upgrades released during your license term. Having access to new versions of JAWS as they become available is essential to ensure the ability to use your computer with the continuous updates of Microsoft Windows�, Microsoft Office�, your browser, and other applications you may use.

What's Next?

After purchasing your JAWS Home Annual license, you will receive an email with instructions and a link to register on the Freedom Scientific Licensing Portal, which allows you to access and manage your software licenses, and provides a simple way to install and activate your software. Your license can be installed on up to 3 of your computers and using the portal, you can easily remove your license from one computer and put it on a new one later.

When registering on the Licensing Portal, make sure to use the same email address you used to purchase your license; if you have already registered from previous purchases, simply select the link you receive and sign in � your license will be available.

Good evening list, Marv here. After installing jaw2019, my volume mixer flew south; meaning I get no context menu under system tray icon for speakers. I had to type in the search box adjust system volume before I was taken to volume mixer. If anyone knows how to create a shortcut to this item, I would appreciate hearing about it.

Stay current with the latest version of JAWS, the world's most popular screen reader, with an affordable, annual license now available for home users in the United States. Choose between a one-, three-, or five-year option, with the ability to easily renew your license at the end of your initial term.

With a JAWS Home Annual license you will always have the most up-to-date version of JAWS, and will not have to pay for an upgrade to get new versions when they release � you have access to all upgrades released during your license term. Having access to new versions of JAWS as they become available is essential to ensure the ability to use your computer with the continuous updates of Microsoft Windows�, Microsoft Office�, your browser, and other applications you may use.

JAWS License Comparison

What's Next?

After purchasing your JAWS Home Annual license, you will receive an email with instructions and a link to register on the Freedom Scientific Licensing Portal, which allows you to access and manage your software licenses, and provides a simple way to install and activate your software. Your license can be installed on up to 3 of your computers and using the portal, you can easily remove your license from one computer and put it on a new one later.

When registering on the Licensing Portal, make sure to use the same email address you used to purchase your license; if you have already registered from previous purchases, simply select the link you receive and sign in � your license will be available.

JAWS Home is intended for use by end-users for personal, non-commercial use only and runs on all currently supported versions of the Windows operating system. Refer

Hello, everyone.

I have been reading bits and pieces of info, but can�t seem to find a nice concise summary of the new Jaws annual home license that apparently is now available with the release of Jaws 2019.

�

Jaws 2019 is the last Jaws upgrade on my SMA, so I will need to do something to renew it at some point.

�

Up until now, I�ve renewed my Jaws Home SMA for a two-year period for $120.

If there now is a more economical way to do this, I�d certainly love to learn about it.

Hi,
I see no reason why a JAWS install would affect that.
However, sndvol will launch the volume control, you should be able to pin it to your start menu or where ever you wish.

I too tried out JAWS for DOS 2.31, but, in my job at the time, ASAP was a better fit.

 

Then, in 1999, or thereabouts, I had to switch to a Windows environment, so I began using JFW 3.2, with the Eloquence that sounded like he had a cold.

 

Yes, I am older, I actually started out with a TI 99/4A, though after it was already discontinued by TI.

 

That’s another story, though and not for this list.

I think this is also an offer which would make it much less expensive for somebody who didn�t keep their SMA up-to-date to get current on Jaws. If, for example, somebody was still on Jaws 16 or even earlier they would have to pay several hundreds of Dollars to get current and then another $120 for the SMA. This way they can just subscribe for $90 a year and they are done. What I haven�t figured out yet is if this also applies for new Jaws users, e.g. if you don�t have Jaws at all, can you just pay $90 a year and download/use the latest version of Jaws and as long as you keep you rsubscription active then you can continue to do so? If so then this really is a good option for new Jaws users because instead of paying $900 or whatever Jaws costs + the cost of future SMA�s they would djust pay $90 a year. After 10 years you would have paid $900 which is I believe what Jaws Home costs, if you had bought it for $900 and then you would buy 5 SMA�s at $120/each you would have paid $1,500 after 10 years so if you are a new Jaws user then $90 a year really is a very reasonable price and who knows what happens in 5 or 6 let alpong 8 or 10 years, maybe Jaws won�t exist any more as such, maybe Microsoft buys them out and it gets merged with Narrator into Microsoft and becomes free, I certainly wouldn�t bet on Jaws being the leading screenreader in 10 years any more.

With a JAWS Home Annual license you will always have the most up-to-date version of JAWS, and will not have to pay for an upgrade to get new versions when they release � you have access to all upgrades released during your license term.

Re: In JAWS 2019 how do I turn back on both the "tab" and "alt+tab" key sounds?

Hi Michael,
 
I believe you replied to my message on how to stop / reverse this setting.  Just because the Jaws folks thought this might be an improvement and you find it annoying like many others why don't you just change the setting and move on.  It's not like they made this change without giving Jaws users the option to change it!
Take care.  Mike.  Go Rams!

The Tabkey no longer echoed in Jaws 2019 release. 
This is what I heard from Eric Damery.
I find that pretty anoying.

Hi!

 

I like hearing the sounds “tab” and “alt+tab” when I press these keys so that I get that confirmation.  Apparently, in JAWS 2019 this functionality is defaulted to “off.”  How can I turn this back on?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hello, everyone.

 

I have been reading bits and pieces of info, but can’t seem to find a nice concise summary of the new Jaws annual home license that apparently is now available with the release of Jaws 2019.

 

Jaws 2019 is the last Jaws upgrade on my SMA, so I will need to do something to renew it at some point.

 

Up until now, I’ve renewed my Jaws Home SMA for a two-year period for $120.

I think this is also an offer which would make it much less expensive for somebody who didn’t keep their SMA up-to-date to get current on Jaws. If, for example, somebody was still on Jaws 16 or even earlier they would have to pay several hundreds of Dollars to get current and then another $120 for the SMA. This way they can just subscribe for $90 a year and they are done. What I haven’t figured out yet is if this also applies for new Jaws users, e.g. if you don’t have Jaws at all, can you just pay $90 a year and download/use the latest version of Jaws and as long as you keep you rsubscription active then you can continue to do so? If so then this really is a good option for new Jaws users because instead of paying $900 or whatever Jaws costs + the cost of future SMA’s they would djust pay $90 a year. After 10 years you would have paid $900 which is I believe what Jaws Home costs, if you had bought it for $900 and then you would buy 5 SMA’s at $120/each you would have paid $1,500 after 10 years so if you are a new Jaws user then $90 a year really is a very reasonable price and who knows what happens in 5 or 6 let alpong 8 or 10 years, maybe Jaws won’t exist any more as such, maybe Microsoft buys them out and it gets merged with Narrator into Microsoft and becomes free, I certainly wouldn’t bet on Jaws being the leading screenreader in 10 years any more.

It sounds like it would be a bit more flexible since you don't have to fight with the activation as much if you use a lot of different computers, but otherwise it looks like a way to generate more revenue.  I just renewed my SMa, they will have a little while longer to wait for my extra revenue.

Is this correct?

I do have one concern, though.

$90 a year doesn�t seem to be that great of a deal, since back in 2016, I got two years of Jaws for $120, as long as I purchased the license by December 31.

Am I missing something?

Stay current with the latest version of JAWS, the world's most popular screen reader, with an affordable, annual license now available for home users in the United States. Choose between a one-, three-, or five-year option, with the ability to easily renew your license at the end of your initial term.

With a JAWS Home Annual license you will always have the most up-to-date version of JAWS, and will not have to pay for an upgrade to get new versions when they release � you have access to all upgrades released during your license term. Having access to new versions of JAWS as they become available is essential to ensure the ability to use your computer with the continuous updates of Microsoft Windows�, Microsoft Office�, your browser, and other applications you may use.

JAWS License Comparison

What's Next?

After purchasing your JAWS Home Annual license, you will receive an email with instructions and a link to register on the Freedom Scientific Licensing Portal, which allows you to access and manage your software licenses, and provides a simple way to install and activate your software. Your license can be installed on up to 3 of your computers and using the portal, you can easily remove your license from one computer and put it on a new one later.

When registering on the Licensing Portal, make sure to use the same email address you used to purchase your license; if you have already registered from previous purchases, simply select the link you receive and sign in � your license will be available.

JAWS Home is intended for use by end-users for personal, non-commercial use only and runs on all currently supported versions of the Windows operating system. Refer

Hi Pat,

 

Ah, those were the days, I also had good old Accent for many years until the software synthesizers and Eloquence came along.

Hi again.

 

Wonder if any of you out there remember the speech synthesizer that worked with a sound card before Eloquence came out?  If I remember it was called Text Assist, and it sounded like a DecTalk.  I used it a little, but I had a DecTalk Express, so I didn’t need it.

 

Just curious.
