Problem Updating Jaws

Shelly Kane
 

Hi Group:


Yesterday, I got the notification to update to the new version of Jaws and I do as I normally do.  When it comes up, it will ask me if I want to update it and I say yes and then it asks me if I want to let the changes come on my hard drive and I say yes to that but for some reason, nothing is happening.  I have tried it three different ways.  I go to where it says yes and I hit Alt Y and wait a while and nothing seems to happen and then I find it again and I hit either space and then enter and nothing is happening. Any help will be greatly appreciated.  What should I be listening for so I know it's updating?  I'm getting complete silence.

Shelly

Let us know how it works out for you.  I have a feeling that they won’t let you do that, but I could be wrong.  LOL.

I’ve never done it either but maybe I could really stretch this thing out for like 10 years or something .

Hi Amy,

 

In a nutshell, if you have the annual license version you pay $95 a year to have it, but I don't know if this is a fixed price or if this price will go up.

 

On the other hand, if you have an SMA, when you buy the SMA this is good for 2 years / 2 versions of Jaws and when purchased in advance you get 2 versions of Jaws for $150.  Right now FS / Vispero has a sale going on until the end of the month and the SMA is $120.

 

It's hard to explain the purchase in advance I mentioned, as an example I always buy my SMA's almost 1 year in advance.  So, my current SMA covered J2022, but because of this sale I purchased my J2023 & J2024 SMA to take advantage of the sale price.

 

For any further explanation you might want to give FS / Vispero sales a call and make sure they give you the sale price if you do buy an SMA.  Their Phone# Is below.

Sales: 1-8800-444-4443

 

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Hi, was wondering what the differance is between the yearly license
and the s.m.a.  for Jaws for windows?  I currently have the 2021
version of jaws.  Trying to decide which would be better for upgrading
yearly or s.m..  Thanks for any help.

Hi Allen,

 

In your case I would call FS / Vispero and talk to them directly.  You will still get the sale price, it doesn't have to be done on line to get the SMA $120 discount.  Just make sure you get an agent that knows about the sale until the end of the month.

Phone#: 1-800-444-4443.

Where or how can I get this. When I run my serial number it says it will cost me 380 dollars. I know they have a discount with ACB Convention going. I would not get that to work. Maybe I entered the code wrong. I would like to get this.
I have the most current version of jaws.

You can get a SMA until July 31 that cover the next two years for $120, regularly $150. That is if in US. These licenses you can use as long as you wish. If you are not current then the annual license might be the least expensive. But at the end of the year you have to renew or your license reverts to 40 minute  mode.

Re: Nevermind my last message about strange problem with NVDA problem fixed

That’s my point.  The add-on should have showed a dialog when time was running out telling you to switch to a different synthesizer and save the settings or you would lose speech.  the same for the SAPI Eloquence program.  This isn’t an NVDA problem, it’s a problem with the add-on or the SAPI 5 demo.

It isn’t NVDA’s fault.  the trial version should cause a dialog to appear when you are almost out of time and it should do so when you have time to change the synthesizer.  NVDA runs the attachment.  It’s the attachment that should notify the user.  People should complain to the program designer.  this is really bad design.

Re: Strange problem with NVDA

Gene
 

Your synthesizer is not able to communicate with the server to be recognized as registered.  When you run NVDA, issue the command NVDA key control s.  Then type e. That will place you on e-speak if that is the only selection beginning with e.  Then press enter.
 
If you have e-speak functioning, you can go into the synthesizer dialog again, and with E-speak speech, choose the synthesizer you want to use temporarily. 
once you have settings such as rate, etdc. set as you wish, save the configuration.  the command is NVDA key control c.Now, the synthesizer you want to use temporarily will be used when you run NVDA.
 
Test over time to see if you can select the synthesizer you are using now. If it says please register this product, use the command NVDA key control r to apply the saved configuration.  That will cause NVDA to use the synthesizer you have saved as the saved configuration, in other words, the one you are using temporarily.
 
Once the synthesizer you want to use makes contact with the server again and the server knows it is registered, you may switch to it, then save the configuration again so it will automatically be used when you run NVDA.

Imagine my surprise when I clicked on the "Buy it again" button and was told the 43-inch model is unavailable. 32" is too small, 50" too big. It's 43 or bust, I'm afraid.
