Vispero/Freedom Scientific most certainly does still own JAWS.
Despite the new name of the company, they still use the Freedom
Scientific name in the addresses of web sites for JAWS, Open
Book and Zoom downloads, and still refer to their podcasts as
FSCasts. So the Freedom Scientific name is still widely used by
the company and has not been officially phased out entirely.

I haven't done this for a long time, but You evidently can't, in
any systematic way, find stock prices by doing Google searches.
There are sites where you can get the value of stocks. I'll let
those who know far more about the subject go into that further. I
have no idea if voice assistants will get you such information.
I haven't read about the story, but I know it is around. I intend
to learn more about it. How do you intend to invest? It won't
make any difference if you buy stock in a company, assuming the
stock is fully purchased. You are buyng stock from another holder
and no money is raised in that way by the company. The stocck
continues to trade because when companies want to issue new stock
to raise more money, the new stock has a value, whatever the value
of the old stock is at the time of issue. If there are other
wways of investing in such companies, I am not aware of them.
I can't tell you what methods may raise more money for any
specific company. I can tell you that if you want to help a
company that depends a good deal on contributions, you can
contribute to NVDA. It isn't investing, it’s a contribution.
As far as searching with Google, the site, type your search in the
edit field and press enter. Then, after a short pause, start
moving through the page using h for heading. All results are
displayed by heading.
Sighted people search constantly and they often use an actual site
interface. If blind people don't know how to search, they are
putting themselves at a significant information disadvantage. I'm
not saying that as criticism of you, I'm saying it because it may
encourage more people to try searching.
Despite what you may have heard about complexities of searching,
just type what you want to know. You can use full sentences or
phrases. Most snowfall in Chicago for example, or what is the
most snowfall in Chicago history, I doubt there is any difference
or any significant difference in the results. I Want To Hold Your
Hand lyrics is an example of finding lyrics for words to a song.
Name of book followed by the word review or reviews to find
reviews of a book, the same for a restaurant, etc.

Subject: [TechTalk] inspired by red it stocks
Hay, after all the stuff with game stop over the past week, I was
thinking about freedom scientific and NVDA access. So I saw
freedom was on the stock, it would not give me it’s stock price.
So wonder if someone can tell me how check on this? I asked both
google and alexa and they were acting stupid about the whole
thing. I would ask google.com, but not sure how to start
searching!, It made me start to think about investing in our
blindness technology perhaps it will generate more income and that
can create better products that we all can use. Like a better
braille display, screen reader, better note taker. I agree with
the red it theme, take charge of your own and not let wall street
and companies decide if the stock is worth something or not, we
should have a say not a person who does not use these products.
Just a thought for the tec group might have someideas or not!
