Hey Ward,

For me it was also Jaws for DOS back in September or October of 1989.
I then had Jaws for Windows from the first release in the early 90's with Windows 3.1, then 3.11 and of course with Windows 95, 98 and 98SE things really started getting more serious.
Sounds like we have most of these young guys on the list beat, but let's see, what is your Jaws serial number? I have serial number 1056 and that has been my serial number for the last almost 30 years.

Regards,
Sieghard

Concerning old buzzards, I started with speech emulation on a TI 99/4A, then Screentalk from Malcom Holzer, then WE Fergusin enterprizes in South Dakota and then UI came to work here where they had JFW 3.1, so I maintained both screen readers for a while, but ....

My first version of JAWS was JFW v1.05. It came on a single 3.5-inch diskette.

Mine was version 9.  Up until that point I never thought I'd ever be able to use my computer again.  What a blessing Jaws has been and will continue to be to me.

Re: Which version of Firefox Quantum works best with JAWS 2019?

Milton Ota <mota1252@...>
 

You will want the latest version of the Mozilla Firefox which is 63. If you are running the 64 bit version, you want the 64 bit of firefox.

Original message:

Hi!
I am upgrading to JAWS 2019 Home Edition. My PC runs Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. I want to install Firefox Quantum, but *which version* of it is best? I believe I should install the Windows 64 bit version, but is there anything more to this than that? Seemingly, version 63 is the latest Firefox Quantum for Windows 64 bit, but I think there are other versions, like an “Extended Support Release” or something like that. Previously, I heard that earlier versions of JAWS did not work well with Firefox Quantum but that these problems have been solved. Is that right?
Thanks,
Richard


Re: Which version of Firefox Quantum works best with JAWS 2019?

Milton Ota <mota1252@...>
 

If you have beta 2 there was a beta 3 that notified you that the final release was available for download and installation.

You will now have to go to www.freedomscientific.com and find the download link to get the final release or wait until the DVD arrives in your mailbox. DVD will be shipping shortly.

Re: SMA

 

I think considering how so many software solutions move to a subscription based model this is a smart move.

One thing I don’t understand, Josh said you can pay $90 a year, $270 for 3 years or $450 for 5 years.

Those 3 and 5 year terms still work out to $90 a year so why would I spend $270 or $450 up front if I can just pay the same $90 a year? I think if Vispero wants to encourage people to buy a 3-year or 5-year subscription they need to make those a bit less expensive.

$90 a year works out to $7.50 a month. I know a lot of people on various lists have complained about the cost of the SMA which was $120 every two years. That works out to $60 a year or $5 a month. Of course if you can now pay $90 a year and get the latest version of Jaws even if you are 3 or 4 versions behind then that is a fantastic deal.

What would make sense to me is if they would charge say $250 for a 3-year subscription, instead of $7.50 a month that would work out to approx. $6.94 a month and approx. $83.33 a year.

Then maybe the 5-year subscription could be $375 which would be $6.25 a month or $75 a year.

I can also understand that they may not want to discount the price for a longer term in which case you should be able to set up a recurring subscription payment where you get a reminder once a year a month or so in advance just as is the case with an Office 365 subscription. Do nothing and your subscription automatically renews and is charged to your credit card.

Hi Michael. I heard you on the last FS Cast live from last via podcast. Anyway my wife and I took advantage of this yesterday since she was still on JAWS V 18 and I didn’t have a version of JAWS on my PC. I commend Vispero for doing this for those who are behind or are on a fixed income like most of here in the US. Folks who use Zoom Text will have this new licensing portal for them on Thursday. I’m happy to have both JAWS and NVDA.

I would have to imagine that the SMA model will be fazed out. Probably just a curtesy for all of us who are on the full licenses to grab the cheaper yearly SMA pricing one last time before the eventual switch over.

I went ahead and upped my SMA since JFW 2019was my last upgrade.

$60 a year now sounds better than $90 or whatever they’re going to charge down the road. Even then, I’d have no issue paying $90 a year for Jaws.

You could either buy a new SMA, or you could subscribe to jaws for $90 a year, $270 for 3 years or $450 for 5 years of jaws.
