RE: JAWS question for a friend

Ted,
You, my friend, are absolutely correct in that FS would not send out a
license unless it was paid for. (LOLLOLLOL)
I have noticed a number of JAWS users with incredibly old versions getting
the newest update through the VA lately.
I suppose the hype of 11 and the upcoming Windows 7 have led to this
situation?
To respond to another lister yes, the user should have some responsibility
in the upkeep of the software but, keep in mind that many of these vets are
quite elderly and may or may not have ever had proper training in the use of
computer software.
At one time the VA and other agencies would simply get the client a computer
and it was every man (woman) for themselves to learn how to best use it.
I spoke at a Vet's meeting not all that long ago and the average age was
quite a bit more than mine. (LOLLOLLOL)
Further, also keep in mind that the SMA situation many versions back was a
whole lot more flexible and not nearly as expensive as it is today. When
Hinter-Joyce was the company many things were on a much more customer
oriented basis.

The comment was not meant to be taken literally, merely to express
surprise. After all, a jump from 6 to 11 is quite a jump.  I guess I was
assuming a new authorization, serial number, the works, as FS does not
send a disk to anyone ineligible, unless that someone is requesting a
demo, or unless someone picks up same at a trade show

That still doesn't answer the question of where they get unlicensed
copies,
unless they download directly from The Web, and burn self executing
copies.
That would, of course, be perfectly legit, as Freedom Scientific
encourages
people to download, it's just a tad unusual, and the end user should
know
what to expect.

Hi,
I seriously doubt if the VA is dealing in second hand or pirated
software.
From my knowledge the software the VA hands out should also come with
someone to help install it. I have noticed that the VA seems to be
handing
out the JAWS 11 to many vets who have very old versions of JAWS. It
would
appear that the VA did not help vets with their older versions by
reminding
them that they (the vets) should keep up their own SMAs.
I have a friend who does tech work for the VA and he delivers and
installs
the new versions of the software supplied by the VA.

Is the VA handing out second-hand or pirated software?  If they obtained
a
copy of JAWS 11 from the company or a dealer, it should come complete
with a
license.  This begs the question of where they got a copy of JAWS 6 in
the
first place, unless the center had an old copy around ,which was
licensed to
them.
