Re: To Jim the JAWS List Owner

Mich Verrier

well I agree that jaws is expencive for hsure how ever I do agree on having the big shots at fs to lower the price. I also find what jaws stands for laughable job access with speech umm what job access? last time I checked the un imploiment for blind people was still around the 80 percent mark. so job prospects with or with out screen readers for blind people don't look like they are changing any time soon. from Mich.

Well, I certainly wouldn't expect to see a totally free, unrestricted
version of JAWS any time soon. But it would not be unreasonable for the
honchos at VFO to at least consider offering JAWS for a more affordable
price to individuals than the $1000 they currently charge, and reserve the
higher price for commercial users and rehab agencies.

Free version of JAWS? Don't hold your breath.

I will keep using NVDA because I was using the free window-eyes-for-office. and I will just use the 40 minute jaws demo when needed, until VFO gets their act together and makes a free version of jaws for home users on very low incomes.

Hello Jim,

Sorry to say, but Window Eyes is no longer going to be updated. VFO,
the owners of JAWS is offering Window Eyes owners a deal that would be
Silly to ignore.

So probably many Window Eyes users will be making the Switch over to
JAWS over the next month and a half.

Over on the Window Eyes list, the question has been asked about the
where abouts of a JAWS list.

I know you run such a list, would you share the subscribing info, and
I'll share it with the others on the Window Eyes list.

Thanks for the info,

Grumpy Dave
