Looks like I’ll have to upgrade to Windows 10 come October then.
Pretty similar a to Windows 7 I think though.
I have pasted a message below just sent out by FS about this. Please Note this portion of the message "
Customers purchasing Freedom Scientific Software at version 2022 or higher, will still be able to use their license on these older operating systems, however they will be instructed to download and use earlier software versions of JAWS, ZoomText or Fusion."
Freedom Scientific Announces End of Installation on Windows 7, 8.x, and Windows Server prior to 2016
(Clearwater, FL - July 20, 2021)
Freedom Scientific today a nnounced changes starting with the 2022 software releases, coming in the Q4 of 2021. The 2022 versions of JAWS, ZoomText and Fusion will no longer be compatible with older versions of Windows and will therefore be blocked from installing. Support of these older Operating Systems has already been dropped by Microsoft over the past few years.

I’ve not been to any of the convention, and know at times stuff is release from FS ahead of time before the public gets to know about it.
Like its private information isn’t it? So in that case I might not be aloud to know yet.
But, does anyone know if FS will continue to support Windows 7 in Jaws 2022?
