Hi Damon,On two occasions I have called Sight & Sound and they have kindly updated my Jaws. Once I was talked through doing it manually as I wanted it on my laptop before the laptop was on the internet and on another occasion I had a problem finding my key. On both occasions I spoke with Will. I know nothing about him and presume, though may be wrong, that he's fully sighted etc. Anyway, he talked me through the processes clearly and well so why not go for it and give them a ring. What have you got to lose?

Hi there. Thanks for previous thoughts on this but it seems I am still unable to authorise my copy of jaws on my new Samsung NC10.I so far deliberately haven't taken advantage of the Mcafee offer and the mcafee window remains open.I've tapped my 20 character jaws code into the correct edit field and I'm being told 'please wait'. Though it warns me it may take several minutes, 10 minutes go past without any change. So I guess that I haven't connected with the Freedom Scientific servers and certainly the project is not registered yet.Note that I've not had a mcafee window popup to tell me that jaws wants access to the internet. And I've had my jaws updated today to make sure I have enough lives left.Any thoughts appreciated.Also, weirdly, I can't ever seem to close down the jaws activation window with an alt f4.I understand there is a way of having an email sent that will authorise jaws for me. Does anyone know anything about this? Will it need to access the freedom scientific servers because this seems a bhit of an issue for me.Thanks v much. Oh and this is the first ever email sent by netbook from me. How exciting!...Damon ** To leave the list, click on the immediately-following link:- ** [mailto:access-uk-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx?subject=unsubscribe] ** If this link doesn't work then send a message to: ** access-uk-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx ** and in the Subject line type ** unsubscribe ** For other list commands such as vacation mode, click on the ** immediately-following link:- ** [mailto:access-uk-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx?subject=faq] ** or send a message, to ** access-uk-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the Subject:- faq
