In the USA, Amazon does collect state sale taxes no matter if you are a Prime member or not.

Hi David,

 

I'm sorry, but what gives you the idea that an Amazon Prime membership means Amazon doesn't have to charge you taxes? I order a fair bit from Amazon since I live in a very small town where I often can't find the same selection as you get in the big city and I have a personal Amazon account with a prime membership as well as an Amazon business account with Amazon Business Prime and except in a few cases where the item comes from a seller outside of Canada and it is not veryt expensive 5% GST and 7% PST (I live in British Columbia) are always applied to every purchase.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Well, I had no idea sales tax was applied to the SMA in the United States.  In Canada if you can prove you have a vision problem, registered with the CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) you are tax exempt from the purchase of the SMA.  As for Amazon, although not related, I have a prime membership which pretty much makes paying taxes on purchases a non issue.  No taxes are paid or shipping for that matter unless I don’t listen to the prompt of shipping costs.  There are times where the shipping cost is more then the actual item.

I believe they are physically located in Florida. However, this does not matter. My zipcode is in Sacramento therefore I pay sales tax there. Amazon is out of Seattle I think but again I have to pay sales tax according to my zipcode. The state of Oregon has no sales tax so no taxes on purchased items unless they have a law for Internet purchased products.

Mario,

The application of sales tax is a function of where you reside and your
state’s laws regarding whether sales tax applies to computer software
and its various forms. If your state applies sales tax to software and
Freedom Scientific has a physical presence in your state, Freedom
Scientific is obligated to collect sales tax and remit it to the state.
The sales tax should be calculated on the discounted price of the
software or SMA.

Like other tax laws, application of sales tax is an ever changing
situation. So, just because it did not apply in the past, doesn’t mean
it won’t in the future.

Hi.

 

I agree with Sieghard regarding Options. If I remember, I got the tip of doing SHIFT+TAB to get to the option of making the function keys not require FN when doing commands.

 

Also, FN+F5 is the applications key on the K780. There are few situations when SHIFT+F10 and the applications key do something slightly different.

 

Hope this is helpful.

I agree that  it would be nice if the installation of Logitech Options software were more accessible, but it can be installed by a screenreader user with Jaws, I can't speak for Narrator since I haven't tried and I can't speak for NVDA since I don't use it.

Once installed it is really not so difficult to tab until you find the checkbox which says " Use F1 - F12 as standard function keys" and Jaws actually clearly indicates if this is checked or not checked. Furthermore even if you need sighted help to install and do this, I would still say this is not such a bad thing since once it's done once you can basically forget about it until you either completely reset Windows and have to reinstall the software or until you buy a new computer where the same is required or until you see Logitech Options in your list of installed applications and decide that maybe this is no longer needed and uninstall it in which case your function keys go back to being media keys.

At my business I use wired Das Keyboard Professional 4 mechanical keyboards which are quite expensive but in my opinion are worth it, at home where I really want a wireless keyboard my Logitech K780 has been fantastic and I think it's now at least 2 or more years old and it still works great which is good. It doesn't have an application key, but it's not so difficult to get used to Shift + F10 and while it also doesn't have a Windows Key on the right side of the spacebar that is also not that big of a deal for me, my mechanical wired keyboards have both, but I actually often find myself not even using the right Windows Key because so many keyboards don't have it and I'm used to not having it and the same goes for the application key.

Whilst It is not this keyboard that you are looking at but found the following which might possibly apply across Logitech keyboards.

  1. For good screenreader compliance you need to change the function keys from hardware   media etc to normal Function keys.
  2. The options software you download from Logitech to achieve this – which I think is used for all Logitech keyboards is very screenreader unfriendly and realistically you need sighted help to install and use it.
  3. My keyboard has no application key. I have to use shift F10 but  occasionally  it does not respond. In these circumstances though using FN F6 will bring up the context menu on my Logitech.
  4. If you change the function keys to normal you gain an insert key. By default this is the volume down  key on my keyboard.

Have any of you figured out how to make Dell mobile connect accessible? I can see the different options: transfer files, notifications, calls, and text messages. I can read my notifications but not my text messages. That screen is blank. I can write a text message but only if I manually type in the contact's number. I can't read my comments. 

Anyway, I figured it couldn't hurt to ask here and on the NVDA list.

Mario,

Physical presence doesn't mean the presence of brick and mortar buildings where sales tax is concerned. Back in the day, sending sales agents into states soliciting orders could be enough to require a company to register and collect sales tax on sales to that state. The law is constantly evolving as the result of new legislation, state regulations, and court cases. The sales tax of software has experienced a lot of changes through the years and I feel confident that Vispero and Freedom Scientific have done the requisite research before registering and collecting sales tax on sales to the various states in which it operates.

Mario,

Physical presence doesn't mean the presence of brick and mortar buildings where sales tax is concerned. Back in the day, sending sales agents into states soliciting orders could be enough to require a company to register and collect sales tax on sales to that state. The law is constantly evolving as the result of new legislation, state regulations, and court cases. The sales tax of software has experienced a lot of changes through the years and I feel confident that Vispero and Freedom Scientific have done the requisite research before registering and collecting sales tax on sales to the various states in which it operates.

Mario,

The application of sales tax is a function of where you reside and your state’s laws regarding whether sales tax applies to computer software and its various forms. If your state applies sales tax to software and Freedom Scientific has a physical presence in your state, Freedom Scientific is obligated to collect sales tax and remit it to the state.
The sales tax should be calculated on the discounted price of the software or SMA.

Like other tax laws, application of sales tax is an ever changing situation. So, just because it did not apply in the past, doesn’t mean it won’t in the future.

Hi Loy,

I updated my SMA to 2023 & 2024 over the weekend and today I got a

message to update my authorization when J2021 started. I got this

authorization update message for each computer, so you'll probably

getting the same message pretty soon.

Stay safe & take care. Mike.

I also live in New York and was charged state and local sales tax of about $6 when I renewed my one year license for JAWS online yesterday for $76, bringing the total cost to $82.  By law,online merchants are required to charge applicable sales taxes, even if they don't have a physical presence in a particular state, but it is up to each state to enforce collection of these taxes.  FS is only doing what it is required by law.  Even Amazon and EBay can no longer duck charging sales tax.

Well, I had no idea sales tax was applied to the SMA in the United States.  In Canada if you can prove you have a vision problem, registered with the CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) you are tax exempt from the purchase of the SMA.  As for Amazon, although not related, I have a prime membership which pretty much makes paying taxes on purchases a non issue.  No taxes are paid or shipping for that matter unless I don’t listen to the prompt of shipping costs.  There are times where the shipping cost is more then the actual item.

I believe they are physically located in Florida. However, this does not matter. My zipcode is in Sacramento therefore I pay sales tax there. Amazon is out of Seattle I think but again I have to pay sales tax according to my zipcode. The state of Oregon has no sales tax so no taxes on purchased items unless they have a law for Internet purchased products.

You can enter your serial number there. Also, you can call Customer Service during business hours and they will help you find the best options.
