moderated Convention Discounts On JAWS Annual License

Vicky

Your explanation makes perfect sense!

Also, keeping the SMA's gives you greater flexibility as JAWS will
continue working for you on a version of Windows it no longer supports.

One doesn't always make decisions strictly on what is the cheapest;
often, decisions are based on what works best for a given person.
You are using smart thinking giving yourself the greatest flexibility
possible.
And, if you have no financial issues with that, why not sas you keep more
options open to yourself.

As far as I know, the ability to activate on three computers isn't contingent on only using one of those computers at a time. I believe it's done because a lot of people have a computer at home, one at work, and a laptop. In my last job developing a popular DRM system, we did the exact thing with our license.

And I certainly understand why you would wonder why I think I need both licenses, grin. Well, I like all the advantages of the Home Annual, ease of activating and deactivating, but I’ve had my SMA serial number for 25 years and just don’t want to let it go, especially with the $120 price, although I would have thought a bit harder had I had to pay $168 or $210. Then, too, should I want to use to of my computers at exactly the same time doing different things, I am able to do that without having any concerns of violating the license agreement, although that’s something I do on an occasional and not a regular basis.

Just to respond back to this long thread to confirm that I did
indeed call FS today, and I couldn’t be happier as I certainly got
more than I expected from the call. I was able to renew my SMA for
the $120 plus the state sales tax, and I also opted to get the Home
Annual license for three years for the $228 plus the sales tax since
I have more than one computer.
I spoke with Kathleen at FS, and she went out of her way to be very
helpful, even during this convention week when the FS folks were
really busy and working extra hours. I did ask about the $210/$168
for the SMA, and while she did believe me when I told her what
pricing the website showed, she wasn’t sure why it was showing those
prices. I also asked if the reduced prices on the three and five
year JAWS Home Annual licenses were the regular prices as the
website indicated or convention specials, and she confirmed those
were the convention prices.
I had to get a different serial number for the three year license
than I had for the one year one. However, since my license for the
Home Annual one year didn’t expire until the end of August, Kathleen
very nicely disabled that license as of now and added those days
onto my new three year license so I wouldn’t lose those 57 days with
the change in license term.
Kathleen also offered to send me an email with my serial number and
authorization code for the SMA renewal I purchased. And seeing as I
only had that original CD or DVD or whatever where the braille was
pretty much becoming unreadable, I was happy to take her up on that
offer. And just in case I would happen to need it, she also sent me
the same information for my OpenBook software.
Thus, I am very pleased with my purchase experience and purchases
and hope things also turn out well for the rest of you.

That’s what I got as well, even though the email from FS reminding
me of  the renewal seemed to talk about links to all the options. So
to find the three and five year options, pick the shop online link
from the main FS website, then the software for home link, then the
JAWS Home Annual  link, and then scroll down and you’ll find the
link for the three and five year options after the description of
the one year license.

Actually, I’m almost thinking it might be a late charge for not
purchasing the SMA by the end of last year, as I recall that prices
used to go up for the SMA if one waited until after the end of the
year when using their last SMA count. In fact, since I was waiting
until the conventions to decide which type of license to renew, I
hadn’t yet purchased the 2023 and 2024 SMA and so also got the $210
price when I put in my serial number, but then I got the lower $168
price, actually $178 something with sales tax,  after going to the
checkout page.
Also, when I checked the JAWS Home Annual license page, it did show
me the lower price from the $95 for each year, but then it said that
lower price was the regular price.
Thus, I’m kind of wondering two things, so maybe I’ll be in line to
call FS on Tuesday as well. First, regarding the SMA, is the $120
price only for those folks who renewed their SMA in what FS
considers a timely manor, or is it for anyone who is currently
running a 2022 license of JAWS? And second, regarding the discount
for the three and five year Home Annual licenses, is this a discount
for the conventions only, or is it now the normal discount for
purchasing so many years at one time?
Finally, and I hope this will make sense, below I’ll copy and paste
what I got when checking my serial number on the upgrade page, what
I saw when bringing up the checkout page for the SMA, and finally
what is shown on the store page regarding the three year Home Annual
license:
Congratulations! Our records show that you are licensed for release
2022 of JAWS Single User and are eligible to renew your SMA for

This is how I understand it. If you paid the initial license price of
$950 for JAWS and have kept your SMAs up to ddate, then SMAs are better
because they only cost $60 per year with the discount and $75 per year
without the discount. But if you can't afford the initial license price
of $950, then the annual license is better because it doesn't require
that initial huge outlay of cash.

Hi, Vicky. I use two of my computers at the same time quite frequently, and have even done it with FreedomScientific on the telephone with me, and there has never been a problem with violating the licence agreement. In fact, FreedomScientific has had me tandem from one computer to the other to diagnose problems, and they knew I was using both computers at the same time.

And I certainly understand why you would wonder why I think I need both licenses, grin. Well, I like all the advantages of the Home Annual, ease of activating and deactivating, but I’ve had my SMA serial number for 25 years and just don’t want to let it go, especially with the $120 price, although I would have thought a bit harder had I had to pay $168 or $210. Then, too, should I want to use to of my computers at exactly the same time doing different things, I am able to do that without having any concerns of violating the license agreement, although that’s something I do on an occasional and not a regular basis.

I don't understand why you need a SMA and the Annual Home license when you can run JAWS SMA on three computers.

Just to respond back to this long thread to confirm that I did indeed call FS today, and I couldn’t be happier as I certainly got more than I expected from the call. I was able to renew my SMA for the $120 plus the state sales tax, and I also opted to get the Home Annual license for three years for the $228 plus the sales tax since I have more than one computer.

 

I spoke with Kathleen at FS, and she went out of her way to be very helpful, even during this convention week when the FS folks were really busy and working extra hours. I did ask about the $210/$168 for the SMA, and while she did believe me when I told her what pricing the website showed, she wasn’t sure why it was showing those prices. I also asked if the reduced prices on the three and five year JAWS Home Annual licenses were the regular prices as the website indicated or convention specials, and she confirmed those were the convention prices.

 

I had to get a different serial number for the three year license than I had for the one year one. However, since my license for the Home Annual one year didn’t expire until the end of August, Kathleen very nicely disabled that license as of now and added those days onto my new three year license so I wouldn’t lose those 57 days with the change in license term.

 

Kathleen also offered to send me an email with my serial number and authorization code for the SMA renewal I purchased. And seeing as I only had that original CD or DVD or whatever where the braille was pretty much becoming unreadable, I was happy to take her up on that offer. And just in case I would happen to need it, she also sent me the same information for my OpenBook software.

 

Thus, I am very pleased with my purchase experience and purchases and hope things also turn out well for the rest of you.

That’s what I got as well, even though the email from FS reminding me of  the renewal seemed to talk about links to all the options. So to find the three and five year options, pick the shop online link from the main FS website, then the software for home link, then the JAWS Home Annual  link, and then scroll down and you’ll find the link for the three and five year options after the description of the one year license.

When I go to renew my Jaws Home license, I don’t get any options for anything other than a one year renewal.

 

What does one have to do to get the option for three or five year license renewals?

Actually, I’m almost thinking it might be a late charge for not purchasing the SMA by the end of last year, as I recall that prices used to go up for the SMA if one waited until after the end of the year when using their last SMA count. In fact, since I was waiting until the conventions to decide which type of license to renew, I hadn’t yet purchased the 2023 and 2024 SMA and so also got the $210 price when I put in my serial number, but then I got the lower $168 price, actually $178 something with sales tax,  after going to the checkout page.

 

Also, when I checked the JAWS Home Annual license page, it did show me the lower price from the $95 for each year, but then it said that lower price was the regular price.

 

Thus, I’m kind of wondering two things, so maybe I’ll be in line to call FS on Tuesday as well. First, regarding the SMA, is the $120 price only for those folks who renewed their SMA in what FS considers a timely manor, or is it for anyone who is currently running a 2022 license of JAWS? And second, regarding the discount for the three and five year Home Annual licenses, is this a discount for the conventions only, or is it now the normal discount for purchasing so many years at one time?

 

Finally, and I hope this will make sense, below I’ll copy and paste what I got when checking my serial number on the upgrade page, what I saw when bringing up the checkout page for the SMA, and finally what is shown on the store page regarding the three year Home Annual license:

 

 

Congratulations! Our records show that you are licensed for release 2022 of JAWS Single User and are eligible to renew your SMA for $210. This will entitle you to receive JAWS Single User releases up to version 2024.

This is how I understand it. If you paid the initial license price of

$950 for JAWS and have kept your SMAs up to ddate, then SMAs are better

because they only cost $60 per year with the discount and $75 per year

without the discount. But if you can't afford the initial license price

of $950, then the annual license is better because it doesn't require

that initial huge outlay of cash.

Hi Vicky!

Curiosity question here. Since you are allowed to activate JAWS on up to three computers with just one license, is there a reason why you couldn't just do that with the other computer instead of buying a separate license for it?

And just in case I would happen to need it, she also sent me the same information for my OpenBook software.

 

Thus, I am very pleased with my purchase experience and purchases and hope things also turn out well for the rest of you.

That’s what I got as well, even though the email from FS reminding me of  the renewal seemed to talk about links to all the options. So to find the three and five year options, pick the shop online link from the main FS website, then the software for home link, then the JAWS Home Annual  link, and then scroll down and you’ll find the link for the three and five year options after the description of the one year license.

When I go to renew my Jaws Home license, I don’t get any options for anything other than a one year renewal.

 

What does one have to do to get the option for three or five year license renewals?

Actually, I’m almost thinking it might be a late charge for not purchasing the SMA by the end of last year, as I recall that prices used to go up for the SMA if one waited until after the end of the year when using their last SMA count. In fact, since I was waiting until the conventions to decide which type of license to renew, I hadn’t yet purchased the 2023 and 2024 SMA and so also got the $210 price when I put in my serial number, but then I got the lower $168 price, actually $178 something with sales tax,  after going to the checkout page.

 

Also, when I checked the JAWS Home Annual license page, it did show me the lower price from the $95 for each year, but then it said that lower price was the regular price.

 

Thus, I’m kind of wondering two things, so maybe I’ll be in line to call FS on Tuesday as well. First, regarding the SMA, is the $120 price only for those folks who renewed their SMA in what FS considers a timely manor, or is it for anyone who is currently running a 2022 license of JAWS? And second, regarding the discount for the three and five year Home Annual licenses, is this a discount for the conventions only, or is it now the normal discount for purchasing so many years at one time?

 

Finally, and I hope this will make sense, below I’ll copy and paste what I got when checking my serial number on the upgrade page, what I saw when bringing up the checkout page for the SMA, and finally what is shown on the store page regarding the three year Home Annual license:

 

 

Congratulations! Our records show that you are licensed for release 2022 of JAWS Single User and are eligible to renew your SMA for $210. This will entitle you to receive JAWS Single User releases up to version 2024.

This is how I understand it. If you paid the initial license price of

$950 for JAWS and have kept your SMAs up to ddate, then SMAs are better

because they only cost $60 per year with the discount and $75 per year

without the discount. But if you can't afford the initial license price

of $950, then the annual license is better because it doesn't require

that initial huge outlay of cash.

Just to respond back to this long thread to confirm that I did indeed call FS today, and I couldn’t be happier as I certainly got more than I expected from the call. I was able to renew my SMA for the $120 plus the state sales tax, and I also opted to get the Home Annual license for three years for the $228 plus the sales tax since I have more than one computer.

 

I spoke with Kathleen at FS, and she went out of her way to be very helpful, even during this convention week when the FS folks were really busy and working extra hours. I did ask about the $210/$168 for the SMA, and while she did believe me when I told her what pricing the website showed, she wasn’t sure why it was showing those prices. I also asked if the reduced prices on the three and five year JAWS Home Annual licenses were the regular prices as the website indicated or convention specials, and she confirmed those were the convention prices.

 

I had to get a different serial number for the three year license than I had for the one year one. However, since my license for the Home Annual one year didn’t expire until the end of August, Kathleen very nicely disabled that license as of now and added those days onto my new three year license so I wouldn’t lose those 57 days with the change in license term.

 

Kathleen also offered to send me an email with my serial number and authorization code for the SMA renewal I purchased. And seeing as I only had that original CD or DVD or whatever where the braille was pretty much becoming unreadable, I was happy to take her up on that offer. And just in case I would happen to need it, she also sent me the same information for my OpenBook software.

 

Thus, I am very pleased with my purchase experience and purchases and hope things also turn out well for the rest of you.

That’s what I got as well, even though the email from FS reminding me of  the renewal seemed to talk about links to all the options. So to find the three and five year options, pick the shop online link from the main FS website, then the software for home link, then the JAWS Home Annual  link, and then scroll down and you’ll find the link for the three and five year options after the description of the one year license.

When I go to renew my Jaws Home license, I don’t get any options for anything other than a one year renewal.

 

What does one have to do to get the option for three or five year license renewals?

Actually, I’m almost thinking it might be a late charge for not purchasing the SMA by the end of last year, as I recall that prices used to go up for the SMA if one waited until after the end of the year when using their last SMA count. In fact, since I was waiting until the conventions to decide which type of license to renew, I hadn’t yet purchased the 2023 and 2024 SMA and so also got the $210 price when I put in my serial number, but then I got the lower $168 price, actually $178 something with sales tax,  after going to the checkout page.

 

Also, when I checked the JAWS Home Annual license page, it did show me the lower price from the $95 for each year, but then it said that lower price was the regular price.

 

Thus, I’m kind of wondering two things, so maybe I’ll be in line to call FS on Tuesday as well. First, regarding the SMA, is the $120 price only for those folks who renewed their SMA in what FS considers a timely manor, or is it for anyone who is currently running a 2022 license of JAWS? And second, regarding the discount for the three and five year Home Annual licenses, is this a discount for the conventions only, or is it now the normal discount for purchasing so many years at one time?

 

Finally, and I hope this will make sense, below I’ll copy and paste what I got when checking my serial number on the upgrade page, what I saw when bringing up the checkout page for the SMA, and finally what is shown on the store page regarding the three year Home Annual license:

 

 

Congratulations! Our records show that you are licensed for release 2022 of JAWS Single User and are eligible to renew your SMA for $210. This will entitle you to receive JAWS Single User releases up to version 2024.

This is how I understand it. If you paid the initial license price of

$950 for JAWS and have kept your SMAs up to ddate, then SMAs are better

because they only cost $60 per year with the discount and $75 per year

without the discount. But if you can't afford the initial license price

of $950, then the annual license is better because it doesn't require

that initial huge outlay of cash.

OK, that's great! And I stand corrected. On the FSCast they said that you had to call customer to get the convention discount, they did not say anything about it being available through the online store as well.

The last time I asked, annual licence was restricted to the United States, but they will decide to make it available to deelers. Therefore you cannot buy it directly from FS, and have to follow your deelers pricing.

In some countries, the price difference is substantial if you purchase from deeler versus direct purchase through FS Online store.

Much of what Freedom Scientific does in its pricing and sales systems is shameful. It has been so for years that they seem oblivious to their international customers, and that many of us would willingly forego the dealers to purchase software upgrades etc directly.

I had the same grumpiness with GW Micro when it provided meaningful competition until things changed. It was even kore odd with them, because they did not have a New Zealand dealership.

Purchasing directly from FS would not dramatically alter the purchase price, because of currency conversions and credit card charges, but it is a principle.

One of the strange things is of course that when you raise this with them, they place it back with the dealer, who then lodges it with Freedom Scientific. I am sure that dealers get a kick back for actually not doing very much.
