This great news popped into my inbox today. I agree with what the previous composer said. People prefer to spend their money in places that they like and If you want them to pay for a program that can benefit them, they would find various kinds of excuses to avoid it.

Because if somebody is 3 or 4 versions behind or they never owned Jaws they don't have to pay hundreds of Dollars up front to catch up or to buy the Jaws to begin with. How much is Jaws Home, I think $800 or $900 USD? This means if somebody bought Jaws and an SMA they would already pay probably around $1,000 or a bit more, they could buy Jaws annual licenses for 10 years before they reach that and who knows what is in 10 years. Nobody says you have to buy an annual license if you have kept up to date with your SMA's, but if you are still on Jaws 2016 or Jaws 18 then just continuing to pay $95 US a year may not be such a bad option and even if the SMA still is $160 Canadian and it lasts you for 2 years/2 major releases, then you are paying $80 a year which is $6.66 a month, if you are paying $95 US a year and that currently translates to around $125 Canadian then you are paying $10.41 a month which is a difference of $3.75 a months more. Add to that the fact that you may be able to get a 15% or 20% discount during convention time on the annual license then the difference is only maybe a buck fifty a month. Lastly, some people just do better if they know they have to pay $95 US a year in order to keep access to Jaws whereas if they buy an SMA they may think it's OK not to maintain it and next thing they are a couple of years behind and especially nowadays it just doesn't pay to fall behind.

Eric Damery pointed out in FS Cast 203 I think it was, that if you already have the SMA you may be better off to maintain it than switch to the home license.  Exactly.  Maybe I’m missing something however, why would someone purchase a annual license when purchasing the SMA is cheaper in the long run? 

 

It is less money over time.

If you Google "Jaws Annual License Canada" one of the first to come up is "Software for Home Canada Optelek" and that is where you can read about it, but as soon as you click the "Get a License" you are anyways redirected to Vispero's site where you have to purchase and manage your license.

Hi Mich,

 

It is 95 USD/year which as far as I know is the same as what it costs in the United States. For Canada you go to the same Vispero website to buy and manage your Jaws annual license and of course there is that thing called exchange rate so on your credit card the 95 USD will be converted to Canadian Dollars at whatever the current exchange rate is. Right now that would be probably around $1.30 or $1.32 so at $1.30 the $95 would convert to $123.50 Canadian or $125.40 if it's $1.32.

This is one example where for once Canadians are paying exactly the same as Americans, if Vispero had set this up to be billed in Canadian they probably would have had to charge a bit more to account for fluctuations in the exchange rate and the cost of collecting the funds in Canadian Dollars which as a United States based business they would then have to convert back to US Dollars and all that comes with a cost both monetary and administrative.

I am also pretty sure that the SMA when they sold it here in Canadian Dollars was more than the approx. $245 or $255 you would currently pay for 2 years of annual licensing. Another good thing for Vispero and in my opinion for the user is the fact that once you are on the annual licensing plan you do have to keep it up or Jaws won't work and this will get rid of people who buy Jaws and then never upgrade and next thing you have all these users who want technical support, but they have a version of Jaws which is 3, 4 or maybe 5 years behind and may not even fully support your current OS and software. At the current exchange rate the annual Jaws license costs you around $10 or $10.50 a month Canadian and this really is not so much to ask, many of us pay that much for a music subscription and if it really came down to whether I spend $10 a month on a music subscription or a Jaws subscription I would choose Jaws because I need Jaws for everything I do on the computer and I don't strictly need the music subscription especially nowadays where there are Millions of songs available for free through Tune In and other services.

I just heard a quick flash message from Jaws a minute or three ago.

I looked up the transcript of the FS Cast 204 and found that apparently, Optelec now has the JAWS Annual Home License in Canada.

I thought those of you in Canada may want to know this.

Claudia
 

Yes,

 

I was having this trouble, on a new Dell Inspiron laptop earlier this summer.

Jaws would stop working, after about 30 minutes of use and then resume but would be very, very sluggish.

I asked about this on another list, and it appears to be a problem if Max Audio Pro or Max Audio by Waves is enabled at start-up.

Once I disabled this in task manager, my Jaws became much more reliable and stable.

 

This is just one idea.

I prefer to send everything into the Downloads folder which is the default so I have it disabled where it asks each time where to save it.

This is currently a better choice for me because of the slightly more complicated way to get to the downloads bar where I can say if I want to save or open the item, this way anything I download goes into the downloads folder and if I want to rename it and move it to a different folder I just do it through File Explorer.

Dear Listers:

 

Several times this morning I have tried to download the new Beta version using both Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome, but every time and with each browser I have been getting an error message that has been saying the file could not be downloaded because of a network issue.  This has happened only just with this file but not with anything else.

Hi, Crayton. No, it doesn't. Steve was just saying that if they had created that command, it would have been an improvement. I'm not sure I agree. You can always create more and more commands, but CONTROL plus C isn't that much more of a stretch than pressing CONTROL plus one again.

Hello All,

 

I am having some trouble with Google Chrome and JFW.

I use the

www.usajobs.gov

website several times per week, to look for new postings.

Inevitably, when I am in the middle of completing a job application and filling out information, I get taken away from the page and put into Google setting, asking me about Addresses and More, Passwords, etc.

I can never get out of this setting, so I inevitably lose my place in whatever application I’m completing.

Is there any way to disable being thrown into these settings, when working with Chrome?

Thanks.

Hi Mich,

 

It is 95 USD/year which as far as I know is the same as what it costs in the United States. For Canada you go to the same Vispero website to buy and manage your Jaws annual license and of course there is that thing called exchange rate so on your credit card the 95 USD will be converted to Canadian Dollars at whatever the current exchange rate is. Right now that would be probably around $1.30 or $1.32 so at $1.30 the $95 would convert to $123.50 Canadian or $125.40 if it's $1.32.

This is one example where for once Canadians are paying exactly the same as Americans, if Vispero had set this up to be billed in Canadian they probably would have had to charge a bit more to account for fluctuations in the exchange rate and the cost of collecting the funds in Canadian Dollars which as a United States based business they would then have to convert back to US Dollars and all that comes with a cost both monetary and administrative.

I am also pretty sure that the SMA when they sold it here in Canadian Dollars was more than the approx. $245 or $255 you would currently pay for 2 years of annual licensing. Another good thing for Vispero and in my opinion for the user is the fact that once you are on the annual licensing plan you do have to keep it up or Jaws won't work and this will get rid of people who buy Jaws and then never upgrade and next thing you have all these users who want technical support, but they have a version of Jaws which is 3, 4 or maybe 5 years behind and may not even fully support your current OS and software. At the current exchange rate the annual Jaws license costs you around $10 or $10.50 a month Canadian and this really is not so much to ask, many of us pay that much for a music subscription and if it really came down to whether I spend $10 a month on a music subscription or a Jaws subscription I would choose Jaws because I need Jaws for everything I do on the computer and I don't strictly need the music subscription especially nowadays where there are Millions of songs available for free through Tune In and other services.

Hi, David. I agree with what Sieghard Weitzel says about this in a later post. Not only that, some users buy the annual license for the same reason that people use a credit card to buy something: they just don't have the full price for the SMA now, but they might have the $95 to buy the annual subscription.

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Because if somebody is 3 or 4 versions behind or they never owned Jaws they don't have to pay hundreds of Dollars up front to catch up or to buy the Jaws to begin with. How much is Jaws Home, I think $800 or $900 USD? This means if somebody bought Jaws and an SMA they would already pay probably around $1,000 or a bit more, they could buy Jaws annual licenses for 10 years before they reach that and who knows what is in 10 years. Nobody says you have to buy an annual license if you have kept up to date with your SMA's, but if you are still on Jaws 2016 or Jaws 18 then just continuing to pay $95 US a year may not be such a bad option and even if the SMA still is $160 Canadian and it lasts you for 2 years/2 major releases, then you are paying $80 a year which is $6.66 a month, if you are paying $95 US a year and that currently translates to around $125 Canadian then you are paying $10.41 a month which is a difference of $3.75 a months more. Add to that the fact that you may be able to get a 15% or 20% discount during convention time on the annual license then the difference is only maybe a buck fifty a month. Lastly, some people just do better if they know they have to pay $95 US a year in order to keep access to Jaws whereas if they buy an SMA they may think it's OK not to maintain it and next thing they are a couple of years behind and especially nowadays it just doesn't pay to fall behind.

I paid for a 2 year SMA I believe around the end of 2020 and it cost me $160. That gives me the 021 and 022 updates. My SMA ran out in Oct. of 020

If you Google "Jaws Annual License Canada" one of the first to come up is "Software for Home Canada Optelek" and that is where you can read about it, but as soon as you click the "Get a License" you are anyways redirected to Vispero's site where you have to purchase and manage your license.

Grate, can someone please provide the link to the website so that us Canadians can learn more about this? I know I could search for it, but I assume whenever I look at Visperro it’s the US site that comes up.

Hi Mich,

 

It is 95 USD/year which as far as I know is the same as what it costs in the United States. For Canada you go to the same Vispero website to buy and manage your Jaws annual license and of course there is that thing called exchange rate so on your credit card the 95 USD will be converted to Canadian Dollars at whatever the current exchange rate is. Right now that would be probably around $1.30 or $1.32 so at $1.30 the $95 would convert to $123.50 Canadian or $125.40 if it's $1.32.

This is one example where for once Canadians are paying exactly the same as Americans, if Vispero had set this up to be billed in Canadian they probably would have had to charge a bit more to account for fluctuations in the exchange rate and the cost of collecting the funds in Canadian Dollars which as a United States based business they would then have to convert back to US Dollars and all that comes with a cost both monetary and administrative.

I am also pretty sure that the SMA when they sold it here in Canadian Dollars was more than the approx. $245 or $255 you would currently pay for 2 years of annual licensing. Another good thing for Vispero and in my opinion for the user is the fact that once you are on the annual licensing plan you do have to keep it up or Jaws won't work and this will get rid of people who buy Jaws and then never upgrade and next thing you have all these users who want technical support, but they have a version of Jaws which is 3, 4 or maybe 5 years behind and may not even fully support your current OS and software. At the current exchange rate the annual Jaws license costs you around $10 or $10.50 a month Canadian and this really is not so much to ask, many of us pay that much for a music subscription and if it really came down to whether I spend $10 a month on a music subscription or a Jaws subscription I would choose Jaws because I need Jaws for everything I do on the computer and I don't strictly need the music subscription especially nowadays where there are Millions of songs available for free through Tune In and other services.

Well yes it is a good thing it is still not the 99 price  that you get in the US it is over 100 or 200 I think. So it is good that we have it but it is  still pricier then those of you have in the US. From Mich Verrier from New Liskeard Ontario Canada.

I just heard a quick flash message from Jaws a minute or three ago.

I looked up the transcript of the FS Cast 204 and found that apparently, Optelec now has the JAWS Annual Home License in Canada.

I thought those of you in Canada may want to know this.

HI Shan,

MediaWiki is accessible with Jaws. Provided everything is configured correctly, you can upload, add and edit pages/documents with a very small learning curve.

HTH,

Sarah

Hi all!

 

My company is pondering moving all our security  operations documentation into a wiki solution.  Since I work in the group and am a Jaws user I want to ensure that the wiki solution chosen is accessible to me as a Jaws user.  That means for reading docs and creating docs and putting them into the wiki.

 

So thought the first place to check is to ask this group since there are a lot of folks on this list.

 

Thanks and have a good day.
