The Post In Which I Get To Use JAWS And Affordable In A Sentence Without Putting The Words Is Not Between Them

I haven’t bought a JAWS upgrade in years. It’s been so many years, in fact, that I can’t even remember the last time that I did. NVDA does pretty much everything I need a screen reader to do while only costing me a small monthly donation that I make by choice, and for everything else there’s the 40 minute JAWS demo or even Narrator. But if we had this new licensing system in Canada, I’d be all over it. NVDA has come a long way in the last several years, but great as it is, there are still things that JAWS is better at. Not thousands of dollars on an ongoing basis worth of better mind you, but $90 per year, $270 for three years or $450 for five years worth of better? Yeah, that’ll work. It still prices some people out I’m sure, but that’s never not going to be the case. What it also does, though, is make things much easier for those who don’t have access to adequate government or other agency funding, especially where initial costs are concerned. Choosing JAWS seems much less intimidating when you’re not having to pay $1000 just for the privilege of installing it, which is to say nothing about the hundreds of dollars you then have to pay for only a couple of upgrades. Here’s hoping this experiment goes well in the States so that the rest of us can get our hands on it soon.
