Hi, Stacey.Welcome to the list. I'm pretty sure you won't be able to upgrade from JAWS 5 to JAWS 8. It would require a new purchase. However, you can upgrade for free to JAWS 5.1, which many listers say is still a pretty workable version, though lacking in PDF-reading and other strengths. For the 5.1 upgrade, you'd need to go to the FS website at
www.freedomscientific.comAll the same, it would be worth putting in a call to FS to make sure. I don't feel confident about this, but maybe they'd consider giving you a break if you mention you bought JAWS 5.0.
Good luck. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Stacey Robinson" <staceyr75@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>Hi all, I am new to the list. My name is Stacey Robinson, and I've used Jfw in the past. The last version I had was 5.0. I don't have a pc right now but I'm considering purchasing a laptop. I use the voicenote mpower for email. I'm wondering if anyone has any idea how much it would cost me to upgrade my jfw 5.0 to the latest version?
