The unfortunate thing is that it's terribly easy for sighted users to manage it, but nearly impossible for v i users to do so.

two
people I've spoken with at FS have made me aware of this. I get there

reasons to stay current. And I have no problem with being legal. I
support
it fully, but I don't support paying for more than one license for a
single
user of the product. My question is if I am paying over and over for
the
same authorizations and capacities, and it sounds like maybe I am.
Perhaps
several of us are if we own both JAWS and a PAC Mate.

FS, while trying to sell me a new PAC MATE told me at a trade show
that a
PAC Mate (a $3,000+ item I already bought before) includes a license
to
run
a full version of JAWS so long as the PAC Mate is hooked to the
computer.
Unhooked JAWS would run on the computer in Demo Mode. Sort of makes
sense,
you can't use both machines alone if they are connected and each has
JAWS
installed.

As I already had a $1000 copy of JAWS 11 on the desktop machine, I had
no
way to test it. Sounds to me like I already spent $1000 too much when
I
bought JAWS and the PAC Mate at the same time as each includes
apparently
includes a JAWS license. Where I am unclear is as to what versions are
supported by the PAC Mate connection and how this is enabled.

I have been hesitant to install a v12 or v13 demo on this machine to
test
as
I don't want to mess anything up on the full install of v.11. I was
hoping
to hear from a PAC Mate user who tried this feature.

When FS called a while back to try and get me to buy a new SMA (and to
upgrade to v.12, just before V.13 came out) the sales guy confirmed
JAWS
is
included with a PAC Mate in this way, so again, I think this is quite
legit., I just want to figure out any limitations and options with
this
feature.

I can't comment on your Pac Mate point, and I'm not sure you want to

Here's a question I have: apparently one can enable JAWS to run from
a
demo
copy (without the demo timer turning it off) by hooking up a PAC Mate
(if
you have one). (A FS guy told us this at a trade show this past
summer.)
Well, we have a "spare" PAC Mate that we basically never use because
my
daughter prefers her BrailleNote Apex.

Does anyone know the deal with this? I mean, isn't demo JAWS the same
as
$900 JAWS that just turns off after what, 30 or 40 minutes?

We bought JAWS 9 with the SMA that got us to 11 and we're doing okay
for
now. I thought of buying the new SMA, but what does that gain for us?
We've
never called for support after the initial setup all the way from
from
v.9
to 10 to 11 so I'm not seeing that as a justification, and this is on
a
desktop machine so it isn't like we need to be mobile-- this is just
plugging in a USB cable, right?

What am I missing? We've never tried this because we've always had a
paid
copy of JAWS and so far we haven't gone past v.11. Just trying to
look to
the future.

Dave, the final price was actually closer to $600 than $500 by the

there
is a huge difference in performance on the Internet between JAWS 5

JAWS 12.
People probably don't notice that much of a difference version to
version, but I was limping along and frustrated beyond belief trying
to do much online. I am always a reluctant upgrader, so I need the
nudge to do so by having the SMA.

To the person who suggested that SMA stands for send money again, I
got a kick out of that.

Joni,

Another way to look at your situation, is in how much money you
actually saved. If you had kept current, going from JAWS 6 through
15
would have been
5 SMA at $120 each for a total of $600. You got current + SMA for
$100
less.

So you came out ahead. Congratulations!

Of course I'm not accounting for inflation and the value of the
dollar
in all this, but still...

Here's a question I have: apparently one can enable JAWS to run from
a
demo
copy (without the demo timer turning it off) by hooking up a PAC Mate
(if
you have one). (A FS guy told us this at a trade show this past
summer.)
Well, we have a "spare" PAC Mate that we basically never use because
my
daughter prefers her BrailleNote Apex.

Does anyone know the deal with this? I mean, isn't demo JAWS the same
as
$900 JAWS that just turns off after what, 30 or 40 minutes?

We bought JAWS 9 with the SMA that got us to 11 and we're doing okay
for
now. I thought of buying the new SMA, but what does that gain for us?
We've
never called for support after the initial setup all the way from
from
v.9
to 10 to 11 so I'm not seeing that as a justification, and this is on
a
desktop machine so it isn't like we need to be mobile-- this is just
plugging in a USB cable, right?

What am I missing? We've never tried this because we've always had a
paid
copy of JAWS and so far we haven't gone past v.11. Just trying to
look to
the future.

Joni,

Another way to look at your situation, is in how much money you
actually saved. If you had kept current, going from JAWS 6 through
15
would have been
5 SMA at $120 each for a total of $600. You got current + SMA for
$100
less.

So you came out ahead. Congratulations!

Of course I'm not accounting for inflation and the value of the
dollar
in all this, but still...

I asked the same question and got no answer, so I suspect the answer is no.
When searching for scripts I found some tutorials on managing WordPress

However, the program is extremely graphical. I've had to ask my sighted

would have been
5 SMA at $120 each for a total of $600. You got current + SMA for
$100
less.

So you came out ahead. Congratulations!

Of course I'm not accounting for inflation and the value of the
dollar
in all this, but still...

Re: SMA Notice

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Thought so. I was born at night, but not lass night. Anyway, I now
have the disk in my hot little hand, and will get after it tomorrow.
I'll probably have to initially deactivate, given past experience, and
I'd like to see how it does with Access, but, one way or the other, I
think I'm finally good to go. I've got an old Kenwood manual that ought
to be a great test for the OCR.

Re: SMA Notice

Dave...
 

David,

Give FS a call. I also see 0 updates remaining, but that is a record of what
I've purchased or renewed via SMA -- nothing to do with authorization keys
on the web.

BTW I've already purchased SMA for 14 and 15 and still I show 0 updates. So
it means that at some point it magically changes to 2, but I sure don't know
how or when.

David,

Again the dongle allows you to legitimately authorize a legitimate copy of
JAWS on your machine, and removes the need to go through the on-line ILM
authorization scheme. To me it makes no sense that it would need to be
updated. It is linked to my serial number, so I guard it against anyone else
making use of it. I think a good use of a dongle would be in setting up
other computers and/or providing some training/introduction to JAWS for
others on their machines. Once I the installer/tutor leaves and takes the
dongle with me, the student/customer needs to make any necessary
remuneration to make their installed copy of JAWS authorized.

Note that I purchased the dongle when I had JAWS 12, before JAWS 13 came
out. So one would wonder if I needed to update the dongle in order for JAWS
13 to work with it -- it is not the case. I've now installed JAWS 13 on that
machine, and it runs with the dongle as its authorization just fine with no
complaints. It's handy, too. I have just installed a new Blue-Ray burner in
my DAW, and of course it changed my hardware locking code and JAWS 13 came
up in 40-minute mode. I plugged in the dongle and re-loaded JAWS. All is
fine now. So that is an extremely good demonstration of the usefulness of
the dongle, since I installed the burner on Friday evening.

I do have one ILM authorization left but I don't want to burn it yet, until
I've completed all the hardware changes on my DAW and I'm sure it's static
again.

Then I'll use the FSActivate to re-authorize both JAWS and Opoenbook 9. Then
since my JAWS keys will be down to 0 I'll send in a request to FS to bump up
my keys again. I've been burning a few lately with Windows 7 coming to my
laptop, and all the hardware I've been changing on my DAW.

David,

Again the dongle allows you to legitimately authorize a legitimate copy of
JAWS on your machine, and removes the need to go through the on-line ILM
authorization scheme. To me it makes no sense that it would need to be
updated. It is linked to my serial number, so I guard it against anyone else
making use of it. I think a good use of a dongle would be in setting up
other computers and/or providing some training/introduction to JAWS for
others on their machines. Once I the installer/tutor leaves and takes the
dongle with me, the student/customer needs to make any necessary
remuneration to make their installed copy of JAWS authorized.

Note that I purchased the dongle when I had JAWS 12, before JAWS 13 came
out. So one would wonder if I needed to update the dongle in order for JAWS
13 to work with it -- it is not the case. I've now installed JAWS 13 on that
machine, and it runs with the dongle as its authorization just fine with no
complaints. It's handy, too. I have just installed a new Blue-Ray burner in
my DAW, and of course it changed my hardware locking code and JAWS 13 came
up in 40-minute mode. I plugged in the dongle and re-loaded JAWS. All is
fine now. So that is an extremely good demonstration of the usefulness of
the dongle, since I installed the burner on Friday evening.

I do have one ILM authorization left but I don't want to burn it yet, until
I've completed all the hardware changes on my DAW and I'm sure it's static
again.

Then I'll use the FSActivate to re-authorize both JAWS and Opoenbook 9. Then
since my JAWS keys will be down to 0 I'll send in a request to FS to bump up
my keys again. I've been burning a few lately with Windows 7 coming to my
laptop, and all the hardware I've been changing on my DAW.

Hello Dave,

Can a dongle be updated?

I recently updated my SMA, on home computer,
So, I'm wondering if I can apply the update to my dongle?
Or, do I just use the thumb drive downloadable files from fs,

Dongle doesn't replace the SMA. It doesn't replace purchasing any new

the

Perhaps
several of us are if we own both JAWS and a PAC Mate.

FS, while trying to sell me a new PAC MATE told me at a trade show
that a
PAC Mate (a $3,000+ item I already bought before) includes a license
to
run
a full version of JAWS so long as the PAC Mate is hooked to the
computer.
Unhooked JAWS would run on the computer in Demo Mode. Sort of makes
sense,
you can't use both machines alone if they are connected and each has
JAWS
installed.

As I already had a $1000 copy of JAWS 11 on the desktop machine, I had
no
way to test it. Sounds to me like I already spent $1000 too much when
I
bought JAWS and the PAC Mate at the same time as each includes
apparently
includes a JAWS license. Where I am unclear is as to what versions are
supported by the PAC Mate connection and how this is enabled.

I have been hesitant to install a v12 or v13 demo on this machine to
test
as
I don't want to mess anything up on the full install of v.11. I was
hoping
to hear from a PAC Mate user who tried this feature.

When FS called a while back to try and get me to buy a new SMA (and to
upgrade to v.12, just before V.13 came out) the sales guy confirmed
JAWS
is
included with a PAC Mate in this way, so again, I think this is quite
legit., I just want to figure out any limitations and options with
this
feature.

Here's a question I have: apparently one can enable JAWS to run from
a
demo

(if
you have one). (A FS guy told us this at a trade show this past

Well, we have a "spare" PAC Mate that we basically never use because
my
daughter prefers her BrailleNote Apex.

Does anyone know the deal with this? I mean, isn't demo JAWS the same
as
$900 JAWS that just turns off after what, 30 or 40 minutes?

We bought JAWS 9 with the SMA that got us to 11 and we're doing okay
for
now. I thought of buying the new SMA, but what does that gain for us?
We've
never called for support after the initial setup all the way from
from
v.9
to 10 to 11 so I'm not seeing that as a justification, and this is on
a
desktop machine so it isn't like we need to be mobile-- this is just
plugging in a USB cable, right?

What am I missing? We've never tried this because we've always had a
paid
copy of JAWS and so far we haven't gone past v.11. Just trying to
look to
the future.

Joni,

Another way to look at your situation, is in how much money you
actually saved. If you had kept current, going from JAWS 6 through
15
would have been
5 SMA at $120 each for a total of $600. You got current + SMA for
$100
less.

So you came out ahead. Congratulations!

Of course I'm not accounting for inflation and the value of the
dollar
in all this, but still...

Kimsan,

So you're saying that your JAWS 12 runs in 40-minute mode and you have no
more activations left on the FSActivate web site?

IF so, it won't help your install of JAWS 13.

If you had previously saved your activation and authorization folders from
your previous non-demo-mode JAWS 12 you could then recover them and JAWS 12
should then run normally.

If you have JAWS 12 running normally then installing JAWS 13 should not
require you to reactivate -- unless...you don't have any more SMA to allow
you to run JAWS 13. If that is the case, the technique to not burn a key
will not help.

So I'm a bit confused with your question and your exact situation, as you
can surmise.

I am wanting to know if I installed 13 and wanted to activate 12 without
burning a key would that make sense or will I need to install from the
oldest version to the most current one.

I am referencing the steps that someone provided a while back. I am aware it
is not garenteed to work on a windows 7 machine but I got lucky last time.



Why do I want 12 seeing as I have 13 running? No special reason, just
curious on how it would work if it would work.

Thanks.

Re: SMA Notice

David <davidwhitehead1957@...>
 

Hello Dave,

Can a dongle be updated?

I recently updated my SMA, on home computer,
So, I'm wondering if I can apply the update to my dongle?
Or, do I just use the thumb drive downloadable files from fs,

Dongle doesn't replace the SMA. It doesn't replace purchasing any new
versions. It only replaces the ILM authorization scheme. Removes the need to
authorize using an ILM key.

No, the dongle is not version-specific. It cost me just a few cents over

US$58 to send it to my mailbox. Also I had to digitally sign a form

Unhooked JAWS would run on the computer in Demo Mode. Sort of makes

you can't use both machines alone if they are connected and each has

We've

Joni,

Another way to look at your situation, is in how much money you
actually saved. If you had kept current, going from JAWS 6 through
15
would have been
5 SMA at $120 each for a total of $600. You got current + SMA for
$100
less.

So you came out ahead. Congratulations!

Of course I'm not accounting for inflation and the value of the
dollar
in all this, but still...

Kimsan,

So you're saying that your JAWS 12 runs in 40-minute mode and you have no
more activations left on the FSActivate web site?

IF so, it won't help your install of JAWS 13.

If you had previously saved your activation and authorization folders from
your previous non-demo-mode JAWS 12 you could then recover them and JAWS 12
should then run normally.

If you have JAWS 12 running normally then installing JAWS 13 should not
require you to reactivate -- unless...you don't have any more SMA to allow
you to run JAWS 13. If that is the case, the technique to not burn a key
will not help.

So I'm a bit confused with your question and your exact situation, as you
can surmise.

I am wanting to know if I installed 13 and wanted to activate 12 without
burning a key would that make sense or will I need to install from the
oldest version to the most current one.

I am referencing the steps that someone provided a while back. I am aware it
is not garenteed to work on a windows 7 machine but I got lucky last time.



Why do I want 12 seeing as I have 13 running? No special reason, just
curious on how it would work if it would work.

Thanks.

Yes, each version of JAWS is installed in a separate folder. Give it a try
and see if it works. I'd skip 12 and go right to 13. Hope this helps.

Interesting. That might make some sense though, as I'm pretty certain when
we saw the demo of the FOCUS unit at the show, it was running JAWS 12.

So if I want to test this, can I load JAWS 12 (and / or v.13) to test this
and not mess up the full install of JAWS 11?

Thanks. I do find the contracted braille option there but that seems to be
for just the display itself, not the keyboard input style. The display is
showing contracted content. I noticed it was set to use a Pacmate display
as
the default and corrected it to a FOCUS display, but it didn't make any
obvious changes to what is happening. Obviously the Pacmate display (when
removed and used as a standalone) is just that-- a display. The FOCUS 40
BT
is a Braille Keyboard and a Display.

Then again, the menu option only says "FOCUS", and I think all except the
Bluetooth FOCUS display have no braille keyboard. Maybe the proper driver
is
simply missing? Hopefully I can get to them at FS on the phone soon. I
think
either a driver is missing or I must be overlooking some sort of keyboard
preferences option somewhere...

I also have yet to get the keyboard working as a Bluetooth device. I can
get
it to show up as "paired", but something is wrong when I use it that way--
nothing happens except that the device does come on and the device name
pops
up in braille (and in the bluetooth list of the computer) so it is indeed
coming on. It simply has to be plugged in via USB right now to be used.

Most of the problem is probably my lack of familiarity with all of this
stuff. It is just all very different that what I'm familiar with. (I'm a
Macintosh Graphics person. )

If I figure anything out I'll post it in case others are interested.

Thanks,

Richard

Re: Jaws 11 / Focus 40 BT

Interesting. That might make some sense though, as I'm pretty certain when we saw the demo of the FOCUS unit at the show, it was running JAWS 12.

So if I want to test this, can I load JAWS 12 (and / or v.13) to test this and not mess up the full install of JAWS 11?

I don't think you can do contracted Braille input with JAWS 11. I think you
need 12 or higher. Sorry.

Thanks. I do find the contracted braille option there but that seems to be
for just the display itself, not the keyboard input style. The display is
showing contracted content. I noticed it was set to use a Pacmate display as
the default and corrected it to a FOCUS display, but it didn't make any
obvious changes to what is happening. Obviously the Pacmate display (when
removed and used as a standalone) is just that-- a display. The FOCUS 40 BT
is a Braille Keyboard and a Display.

Then again, the menu option only says "FOCUS", and I think all except the
Bluetooth FOCUS display have no braille keyboard. Maybe the proper driver is
simply missing? Hopefully I can get to them at FS on the phone soon. I think
either a driver is missing or I must be overlooking some sort of keyboard
preferences option somewhere...

I also have yet to get the keyboard working as a Bluetooth device. I can get
it to show up as "paired", but something is wrong when I use it that way--
nothing happens except that the device does come on and the device name pops
up in braille (and in the bluetooth list of the computer) so it is indeed
coming on. It simply has to be plugged in via USB right now to be used.

Most of the problem is probably my lack of familiarity with all of this
stuff. It is just all very different that what I'm familiar with. (I'm a
Macintosh Graphics person. )

If I figure anything out I'll post it in case others are interested.

Thanks,

Richard

Under setting center, go to Braille, general, translation options. I
suppose just tinker there, but it sounds like the right place.

Good luck!

Hi Richard,

I don't know the answer to your question, but Freedom Scientific
might. You may want to give them a call.

My daughter has been using her FS Focus 40 BT in uncontracted braille

type
uncontracted. I actually didn't realize the keyboard was running
uncontracted as she flies along pretty quickly and it looks the same to
confused sighted parents like myself trying to keep track of our
braille-using kids.

Can someone tell me how to toggle between contracted and uncontracted
(grade
2 / grade 1) please? I suspect it is a simple keystroke, but I'm not
finding
the solution in the print manual, nor does my third grader see it in
the
braille version. (She's actually often able to find things like this
for
herself.)

Thanks so much for any help with this.
