Hi Mike, that is very disappointing news.  I applied two years ago for an 
update and when I phoned they told me I was on the list.  As you were told I am 
over the age limit.  Perhaps I am living in a fools paradise thinking my update 
will come soon.  Jaws 3.7 has served me well, but after five years an update or 
two or three must be due. Kind regards,  Maureen Murray.

  Hello listers,
  I bought a new Computer and decided to enquire about getting help from the 
pool of aids, first to find out that someone had registered my version of Jaws.
  I asked then was it true that if you were over 65 you were out, and was told 
to contact my local office, I did that to discover it was true. But it was the 
fault of the health board. I rang and was told first they never heard of JAWS 
or any software for the blind, and if I had purchased it I wouldn't get a 
refund. And if they could give me one I'd have to have a medical Card, but I 
wouldn't get that till I was 70.
  I am very annoyed over this because I know there are many members and non 
members out there who are working with versions of Jaws that are ancient and 
many of them would not be able to afford 1171.65 Euro for the latest version.
  I would like if Vics could bring this up at their next AGM and find out where 
the problem lies.
  I have been on this list for years and hear members who are working 
discussing their new version of JAWS, Can you imagine how the other people with 
out of date versions feel.
  Any suggestions would be welcome.
  If I wanted a zimmer frame or a commode I'd also have to have a medical card.
  I must try to stay healthy and mobile.
