You can get a Annual Home subscription for JAWS for  around $90 a year. There is also a free screen reader "NVDA"

Also if you live in the US or a territory, try to find the tech act program in your state to see if they have a low interest extended term loan program folks can use to buy technology.

Fi Billy,

The annual subscription mentioned isn’t available tu us in the UK as yet.

However, every summer Sight and Sound reduce the price of JAWS and other FS products in line with sales offered by FS. I can’t remember what the price of a JAWS licence was this year, but it wasn’t over £150 I don’t think.

Hanging on until July/August is likely to be your best bet, though NVDA as has already been suggested is a capable screen reader which may well meet your needs.

Cheers,

Ed

Hi Ed,

 

Don’t Sight And Sound use Divide By as well, so you could pay for JAWS in 12 monthly installments?

Being Canadian the subscription was not available to me. Perhaps that's changed however, purchasing the SMA was more cost affective in the long run. It cost $160 for 2 years, as apposed to $95 per year with a subscription.

if you're talking about Window Eyes, the makers have gone out of business, and most likely won't work properly in Windows these days. the only alternative is NVDA which is free and Narrator which is built in to Windows 10.

Steve, as a 54-year old very active technology user who has been using Jaws since 1989 I have tried to use NVDA a few times and I just can't do much with it because of the differences. Yes, maybe some keys are similar, but it still is quite different as well. Of course then again I just have not felt motivated to really spend time learning it to the point where I might feel more comfortable with it since I always keep my Jaws up to date.
