hi Tony, Unfortunately,  you have to uninstall and  reinstall Jaws  to get FSReader back. 
I hope I'm being helpful. 
Thanks for asking. 
Best regards

It is not necessary to uninstall JAWS. Instead, run the installer for your version of JAWS and choose "repair" from the list of options. If you don't have the installer for your version you can obtain it by going to the Freedom Scientific Web site and selecting the Downloads link. Doing a repair will likely bring JAWS back to a default state, meaning that voice settings and hotkeys will go back to their original settings.

If you export your settings beforehand you can import them back after you do the repair.  Steps below.
You export all your settings by going into the Jaws context menu with, Jaws key + J, if you run Jaws from the system tray.  Then go to, Utilities / Import 
/ Export settings submenu and press enter.  Now arrow down to, Export settings..., press enter, now make sure that the, Export all settings radio  button
is selected.  Tab to, next, press spacebar.  You're now in a dialog to select a name & save location, but the file will already be named and the default
location is the desktop, so tab to finish , press enter and all your settings for that Jaws version will be saved to the desktop.  After you install Jaws
just import this settings file.
 
How to Import Your Exported settings
 
1. Launch your JAWS context menu by pressing, Insert + J.
 
2. Use the arrow keys and find utilities.
 
3. Find and click on the Import/Export settings menu
 
4. Click on the Import Settings…
 
5. A dialogue will appear which says “a backup file”, so choose the browse option and find the backup file.
 
6. Press next

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers & Rams!

Hi David, that's helpful. Thank you for telling me.   I actually did the  same thing two years ago  and luckily I have the DVD for Jaws 18 so I end up  reinstalling Jaws 18 on my computer and got fSReader back.   
I guess i should consider using  your method  next time. 
Thanks again. 
Best regards
