[access-uk] Re: So... How's Jaws 9.

Hi Peter:

you are one more person who thinks fs break their software, tahnks for that.
No matter how much I say about this, everyone who is a committed jaws user
nearly always tells me jaws does not work because it is something on my pc
which is at fault. hmm, how come it worked in a previous version then? well,
the plain fact is jaws is becoming less and less the world leading screen
reader it once was.  the shark's house is so full of adaptations and addons
in my view that it is now falling down.  And the blind community are forced
to pay for the damage caused by others to what was once a great product.
just my views. thanks.

Hi Chris,
I would download Window Eyes and install it on my Jaws  active computer. But
the thing is, though neither company will admit it, A window Eyes computer
won't work well if it detects jaws and a jaws computer won't work well if it
detects Window Eyes. Ask yourself, why after all this time won't the
Zoomtext focus follow the Jaws cursor? Answer? Jaws is produced not to
follow Zoomtext. It is produced to follow the Magic focus. In short, Its all
about money and the blind guy... Well ... Tough. If you have Jaws on your
computer you will not be able to install window eyes easily. You will
probably have to consult the window eyes team to get it working properly.
This is part and parcel of the whole program of difficulties when you are
offered to download one or other of the three leading access softwares.
Jaws, Window Eyes and Zoomtext. If you are a jaws user, download Window Eyes
and see what happens. Ditto if you are a Window Eyes user and you download
Jaws. I'll guarantee you will need to consult the support team or re-format
your computer. I've just been asked to pay 281 pounds for an upgrade from
Jaws 7.1 to Jaws 9.0 and I think this is a bit steep. I've just paid $400 to
go from XP Home Canadian to Xp Pro Uk and then over 100 pounds to go from
Jaws 6x to 7.1 which didn't work. Now only a few months later they want 280
pounds to go from 7.1 through 8.0 wich was broken but Freedom scientific
refused to fix, to 9.0 which folks are telling me is a blasted waste of
time? How long are we just going to sit on our swivel chairs and put up with
this crap. A simple upgrade from Jaws 7.1 to 9.0 at 281 pounds is almost
half the price of Window Eyes which I've heard is catching up! Sure I can
even torrent a pirated copy of Jaws 8.0 on the pirate bay, but I'm not sure
its worth the bother.
