I have heard the ILM only gives you three keys, but I suspect you could call 
FS if you need more.  I could see how this might be a problem in a working 
environment with several computer systems.  I have that problem myself, and 
am trying to figure out a work around.

>> Hi
>> Kathy asked a question here earlier about wether or not to just wait til
>> March to install 6.0.
>> Let me clear a couple of things up.
>>
>>  The quella version of JAWS 6.0 will expire in March, so if you're using
>> that, you should receive your CD, or what FS calls a SMA shipment, in
>> January or possibly as late as February.
>> So if you're using that, or even if you're using the ILM build and you're

>> you'll need to do, as the text on the website says, is simply insert your
>> authorization cd and then you'll authorize and be transfered over to the
>> new internet based authorization system.
>> The same holds true if you're using a dongle. You have a choice of using 
>> a
>> dongle or not using one because the ILM build has automatic dongle
>> support.
>> When the program starts it automatically checks for a dongle. If a dongle
>> is present, then it'll start JAWS automatically. If not, you'll be
>> prompted
>> to insert your authorization cd.  So it really isn't all that 
>> complicated,
>> even though it might seem like it. I do wish FS would make their
>> terminology a bit easier for the new user to understand.  A lot of new, 
>> or
>> inexperienced computer users don't want to have to understand a lot of
>> complex terms to get things going.  So that's why they came up with this
>> authoorization cd idea which  I think is a good one.  Just for everyone's
>> reference, I'm going to paste the entire text of the JAWS 6.0 main page.
>> It
>> has a Q and A about everything everyone's asked today. So please, read it
>> carefully. In this case, skimming is probably not a good idea because you
>> might miss an important point. here it is, read below.
>>
>> JAWS for Windows 6.0 English Version Release
>>
>> The 10 year anniversary edition of JAWS for Windows 6.0 English Release 
>> is

>> customers and the schedule of shipments.
>>
>> This release is an SMA (Software Maintenance Agreement) upgrade and there
>> are links below to all of the serial numbers pre authorized and scheduled
>> to receive
>> this version as part of the SMA shipment. If you have not purchased this
>> upgrade yet and would like more information and details on cost and
>> availability,
>> please contact Freedom Scientific Sales or your local authorized dealer.
>>
>> How do I know if I can download it now?
>>
>> You can check the complete list of serial numbers to see if yours is

>> in
>> error,
>> please contact Freedom Scientific Sales. If your number is included, you
>> can download and begin to use JAWS 6.0 today!
>>
>> If I am entitled to receive this release, will it be shipped to me

>>
>> Yes, this new release is now going to production and all the SMA
>> shippments
>> will be prepared and begin to ship by the middle of January. You should
>> receive
>> this shipment no later than the end of February.
>>
>> Will I be using my old 3.5 inch authorization disk with the new release?
>>
>> If you have not received the new Internet Based Authorization (ILM) yet,
>> you will be able to download and use the Quella Version now. This version
>> expires
>> on March 15, 2005. Your SMA shipments will contain the new ILM
>> authorization and your ILM Program CD which will install right over this
>> Quella version.
>>
>> If you have already received the ILM version as part of your new product
>> or
>> upgrade purchase since September 2004 you may already have your new
>> Authorization
>> CD. In this case, you can download the ILM version of JAWS 6.0 now. You
>> will also be getting the Program CD shipped to you with the normal SMA
>> shipments
>> beginning in January.
>>
>> Will all the JAWS SMA shipments contain the new ILM authorization?
>>
>> Single User License (English Release) SMA shipments will be getting the
>> new
>> Internet based Authorization with their shipments.
>>
>> Multi User License (English Release) SMA shipments will still be getting
>> the Quella version authorization and will be given an opportunity to
>> transition
>> to the new scheme as soon as they are ready. Multi user customers will
>> receive further details in the SMA package and should contact the Freedom
>> Scientific
>> Multi User Sales team with any questions.
>>
>> If I just purchased JAWS recently, am I entitled to get JAWS 6.0 for 
>> free?
>>
>> If your new product purchase occurred since September, 2004 and you
>> received JAWS 5.10 with a serial number higher than 400,000 or a Quella
>> version with
>> a serial number higher than 92,200 then you are pre authorized for a JAWS
>> 6.0 upgrade free of charge. You can download the appropriate version and
>> begin
>> to use JAWS 6.0 now.
>>
>> If I'm currently using a dongle for my JAWS authorization, can I begin
>> using 6.0 now?
>>
>> You can start using JAWS 6.0 provided your dongle is properly locked to
>> allow this version. If you feel your license is authorized for 6.0 or
>> later, you
>> should download the new ILM version now which is designed to first look
>> for
>> a dongle when it is launched. When your SMA shipment arrives, you will
>> then
>> be ready to follow the simple procedure to update your authorization with
>> ILM and you can stop using your dongle at that time.
>>
>> If I currently only have Quella authorization, and I download the ILM
>> version of JAWS 6.0, will it work?
>>
>> No. The Internet based authorization does not recognize your Quella
>> authorization key. Likewise, the Quella version cannot recognize the ILM
>> license. However,
>> the new ILM version of JAWS can recognize a dongle and use it for
>> authorization.
>>
>> What if I'm in a country where only Dongles are used? Should I still
>> download and use the ILM?
>>
>> No, we have provided a
>> Dongle Only version on the Downloads pages
>> for your use. You should use this version with your dongle.
>>
>> Will there be new Training Materials with JAWS 6.0?
>>
>> When you get your SMA shipments in January or February, the all new DAISY
>> formatted Basic Training material along with the recorded What's New and
>> some
>> other files showing off the new features will all be included. These 
>> DAISY
>> files are installed directly from the Program CD of JAWS now if you 
>> choose
>> and
>> the FS Reader Demo installed with JAWS 6.0 will read them all. FSReader 
>> is
>> a new program from Freedom Scientific that you can use to listen to and
>> read
>> DAISY books. FSReader Demo is included with JAWS and can read only DAISY
>> books created by Freedom Scientific. For information on purchasing the
>> full
>> version
>> of FSReader, contact Freedom Scientific Sales.
>>
>> To download DAISY training materials on some of the new features in JAWS
>> 6.0, go to the
>> Freedom Scientific Training page
>> and choose the DAISY Books link.
>>
>> Can I read the Freedom Scientific training material with other DAISY
>> readers?
>>
>> While FSReader Demo is included with JAWS 6.0 to allow you to read and
>> listen to books created by Freedom Scientific, you can use any DAISY
>> reader
>> software
>> of your choice instead. Freedom Scientific DAISY books can be used with
>> any
>> DAISY reading software.
>>
>> Will this version of JAWS for Windows work with MAGic 9.0?
>>
>> We have tested JAWS and MAGic together extensively. If you want to use
>> JAWS
>> 6.0 with MAGic, we recommend that you update to
>> MAGic version 9.2.
