moderated Jaws upgrade in Canada, best place to do so


Tyler Wood
 

Hi everyone,
I remember there was talk about a dealer located in BC that would allow me to upgrade my Jaws license and buy an SMA. If I remember right the person I chatted with was named Mike. I regretfully lost the info as it pertains to that but my experience was absolutely fantastic and I'm curious if they are still in operation?
This is a stark contrast to the dealer located in Quebec that Freedom Scientific transferred me to the time before that - completely unprofessional, did not return phone calls and as it turned out charged me more than the dealer in BC.
I'm currently running Jaws 2021. If memory serves, I upgrade to 2022 followed by purchasing an SMA that will allow me to keep going until 2024?

Any help appreciated!

I just called and talked to Ryan. Great to deal with and did renew my SMA as well.

If anyone wasn’t aware we also have the option in Canada to use the annual licensing options that were previously only available in the US. However since I have remote desktop upgrades and the Jaws dongle attached to my serial number, combined with the amount I’ve already invested,  I went this route.

I just grabbed the annual license for now, as I really just need good braille suppot to be good. It was easier to renew this year, as you can go directly to the freedom scientific store and get it. That does require a credit card though.


Madison Martin
 

Yes, since I already had a licance I renewed my SMA too

I discussed with Ryan the benefits and drawbacks to getting an annual license that a lot are touting. For me at least the SMA is more cost effective.  Why should I pay around $100 per year when the SMA only costs me $165 for 2 years. Not sure about other agencies however, since I’m registered with the CNIB, I pay no taxes on the $165. All Rian needed was my CNIB registration # to have the taxes waved.

Hi,

My situation was slightly different in that I didn’t renew my SMA in time and thus had to pay $165 to upgrade to 2022 and then to renew my SMA, so $330 total. I, too, am registered with the CNIB and thus the taxes were also waved. Won’t go into my issues with CNIB but glad it came in handy here.

It still didn’t make sense to get the annual license since I have the remote desktop add on and the Jaws dongle which allows me to activate on any machine it’s plugged into. You truly don’t hear of things like this anymore and I figured it would be a good investment to keep going with. The improvements and new features in 2023 really do sound interesting. For me personally I’m really interested to see how the new glances work with youtube. To my knowledge videos that are watched or partially watched are colored different than ones that have not been. I’m not sure about format or font.
