After purchasing a SMA, how do I get it to show  the new amount of upgrades I have.


moderated Will SMA's continue, was RE: Freedom Scientific Software Sale

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

IN response to Gerald’s statement below, I wrote Eric Damery directly on Sunday, July 4, and received a response today.

Here is my question to him:

 

Good morning, or afternoon; whenever you read this,

On one of the Jaws lists, the issue of to SMA or not to SMA has been coming up because of the sale.

 

It is being said that the SMA is going to be faded out and everyone wil be forced into the annual license.

 

Is that true?

 

Here is his response:

 

Hi Richard,

 

Not at all. There are currently two options and I expect that to continue.

 

If you are in ILM and current, maintaining a two year SMA is an option today. $150 is retail and you can get it during the show for $120. Pretty good deal.

For those who have let their license lapse, or don't own one, than paying annually with the Portal solution will likely be less expensive and thousands of customers have gone that direction.

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.

Take Advantage of our Software Discounts
by
Elizabeth Whitaker

 

Freedom Scientific is offering a 20 percent discount on software for customers living in the U.S. With the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) 2021
National Convention right around the corner, there’s no better time to purchase a new software license or renew an existing one.

 

Home Annual License

 

Receive a 20 percent discount when purchasing a new Home Annual license of JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion. Visit the
Home Annual page of the Freedom Scientific e-store to purchase your license. You will not need a code to receive this discount. It will be automatically applied upon purchase.

 


If you already have a Home Annual license and want to renew it, log into the
Freedom Scientific Licensing Portal,

 


and select Renew. The discount is automatically applied to your purchase. The renewal term you choose will be added onto the end of your existing license
no matter where you are in your current term.

 

Home ILM Upgrades and SMAs

 

If you have a Home Internet License Manager (ILM) and need to purchase an upgrade or add a software maintenance agreement (SMA), the same 20 percent discount
applies. Visit the
Freedom Scientific Serial Number Lookup Page

 


 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.

Hi Michael,
While I have not ordered a machine from this company, I was assisting someone who received a unit. The problem she encountered was that it took several minutes for her machine to start up. She was with Voc Rehab and I think they contacted the company to resolve the issue.
Best,

Les

What is it you want to clean? I have had iPhones since 2009 and never had a need to clean anything other than to delete apps I no longer wanted and maybe every few years to set up a new phone from scratch. What phone do you have and what is it doing or not doing which makes you think it needs to be cleaned?

Also, you can access the format menu by highlighting either one or multiple cells and use the application key followed by the “F” key. This will allow you to change the format of the cell(s) contents and lock/unlock or hide cells.

moderated JAWS and Paltalk

Derek Czuy
 

Hello list members:

 

What version of the Paltalk chat program works with JAWS and can be installed on a laptop computer running Windows 10? I am asking this question on behalf of a friend. She currently has a version of Paltalk installed on her iPad, but also wants to install the program on her laptop. She finds it easier to type on her laptop than she does on her iPad.

 

I installed a version of Paltalk on her laptop. Soon after you click on Paltalk to open it, the program closes. Why is this? Your answer to these questions will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

 

Derek

On the other hand, An annual home subscription will be good for only a year and at the end of that year, you will need to renew the subscription for another year, or it will no longer work except in 40 minute mode.

AAlso, if the OS expires, such as what happened with XP, FS stops supporting operating systems past that one. I think after XP. These convention deals have saved me. Though have not raised my respect for the exploitative business that the company was built upon.

I will be getting a new SMA, though I have a year left on mine, just a safety net for when they pull the plug on offering them.t is JAWS 15 that won’t work on an OS after

I have a 2 year SMA that I got just before the rolling out of the 2021 JAWS.  However, with a deal like this, it couldn't hurt to take advantage of it, especially when it cost $160 for 2 upgrades.

Since their software is international, it seems like something could be

moderated Re: Verbosity of MS Office Ribbons

Jim Fettgather
 

Hello, I have received these lengthy explanations while navigating the Microsoft 365 ribbon, but only with Narrator or NVDA, but never with Jaws.

I am not even 100% certain that this lengthy text is even appearing on the screen

I do find the explanations fascinating, but also find it interesting that I have never gotten them with Jaws, only the other two  screen readers.

Thanks.

Subject: Verbosity of MS Office Ribbons

 

Hi all,

As an instructor, I am exposed to many other people’s computers. Recently, I have noticed that when some trainees navigate to a ribbon command on their computers, and pretty sure it is Office 365, they hear a long explanation of what the command does. This may be useful initially, but after a short time, nobody wants to hear that any more. I have played around in settings center and quick settings, altering verbosity, but that does not help. Any idea of how to get rid of these explanations?

Thanks,

David
