Re: JFW on a thumb drive

Aren't all current versions of the jaws programs authorized by this ILM 
method instead of by the old "keys," however exactly it was that those 
worked?

That what I understand.  If you already have a version with ILM, I'm not
sure if you can then also get a dongle or not though.  It would be worth
checking into though.

So, if you have a dongle (whatever that is) as well as the thumb drive
deal,
you can provide a temporary authorization to someone else's PC and use
it as
long as you like, until you unplug those devices from the two USB ports
into
which you had to insert them?  Am I getting the idea?  Can you call FS
and
order a dongle, and then download the thumb drive stuff, and then
you're
good to go?

The world dongle has nothing to do with JAWS, so I won't go there. But
if
you use a dongle, you do not use up your FS activations. The dongle is
an
authorization scheme used in place of, not in addition to, ILM.
