Yes you are right, the free demo copy of Jaws lasts 40 minutes and then you
have to restart your system. All one has to do is download the free JAWS
setup package, available from the Freedom Scientific Web site at:
Click "downloads" and then click the "JAWS for windows screen reading
software" link. There you will find the latest JAWS version and built
downloads for either your computer or your USB flash drive--which will make
it portable to use.

Hi Adriana and all,
It's possible to get a demo copy of JAWS for free. From what I
remember, demo JAWS has all the same features as the paid version of
JAWS except that it makes you restart your computer every forty
minutes. (If that's changed please correct me). Having to restart a
lot is annoying, but demo JAWS is a great free alternative especially
if you are only using it for a few months. I used a demo copy of JAWS
at two different internships and it worked out fine, and the frequent
restarts didn't seriously affect my productivity.
I'm not sure if you can download a demo copy directly from the Freedom
Scientific website, but it's likely you can. If anyone has better
advice on how to obtain a demo copy of JAWS, please chime in.
