Re: Why I am not going to use JAWS

Most pieces of software only make you reauthorize if you change a significant piece of hardware--a motherboard or perhaps a hard drive. Adding or removing a stick of RAM should not be a cause for concern. Nor should plugging in a USB device. Think about it. Microsoft does not make you reauthorize your Operating System just because you plug in a USB device. Neither do all of your other programs. The computer world would grind to a halt if this were the case.


The irony of this whole situation is that Freedom Scientific designed their software this way. Despite this fact they punish people for using too many reauthorizations. We should expect more from a program that costs somewhere around $1,000 with constant expensive upgrades.

you like making there scheems so that when you change a hardware device in your pc you have to reauthorize again?

Some of us, myself included, are absolutely fed up with Freedom Scientific's policies and certain aspects of their products. Many times, change only comes when customers demand it. This is not whining. Freedom Scientific has been nickle and diming its customers to death and giving them bad user agreements for years and it is time that they know that we know that there are alternatives out there.

Hi.
I understand now. It's called NVDA. This is all I will say since this
would be inappropriate.
Take care.

Hello all.
I will publicly state why I am refusing to use JAWS. It is Freedom
Scientific's attitude towards pricing and their license schemes. Some
of
us can't or won't afford to buy JAWS, especially if the free one is
just
as good as JAWS. As for the license scheme, the user is punished to
license JAWS on up to three machines. With the free and even other
commercial screen readers one can install on as many computers as they
have so long as one machine is used at a time, no questions asked.
With
JAWS, once all three authorizations have been used they would then
have
to request FS for more keys. Eventually and I will say eventually they
will refuse flat and get paranoid about people sharing authorization
keys. I understand piracy and all that and I certainly don't commit to any of that stuff however at the same time FS is just asking for money
and not caring about the customer. True there is a dongle option, but
even they can have their fair share of problems. Now for the
technical,
I do find the free one to be actually more stable and even works with
more applications than JAWS. You may find this shocking but this is
true
according to my personal experience.
Sorry for the rant but you did suggest I state publicly my reasons. So
there you go.
Take care.
