Subject: New JAWS and ZoomText Annual Home Licenses Now Available Through
The Freedom Scientific eStore


I am pleased to pass along some exciting information about new annual
licenses for JAWS and ZoomText. With these new annual licenses, blind or
low-vision computer users in the United States now can purchase ZoomText
Magnifier/Reader or JAWS for as little as $80 or $90 (respectively) per year
without paying hundreds of dollars up front. Instead of spending $400 for
ZoomText, $600 for ZoomText Reader/Magnifier, or $900 for JAWS , you can now
shop online and pay as little as $80 a year for ZoomText Magnifier with
Speech or $90 a year for JAWS. You have the option of purchasing options for
one, three, or five years, and as long as your license is current, you will
always receive the most up-to-date version. You will not have to pay any
more to obtain new versions of ZoomText Reader/Magnifier or JAWS as they are
released. Moreover, you will be able to run these programs on up to three of
the computers you use, and if needed, you can temporarily remove the license
from one computer and activate it on the computer of a friend or family
member whom you may happen to be visiting.


Admittedly, this is not that significant for those of us who have already
spent the money to purchase ZoomText or JAWS licenses. However, for folks
who have not purchased these programs because of the hundreds of dollars
that they cannot afford to spend, or for folks who have avoided paying
maintenance charges to keep their software current, this is a really big


The ZoomText or JAWS annual home licenses are currently available only
through the Freedom Scientific eStore at
https://store.freedomscientific.com/. Here, you can search either for "JAWS
Home Annual License" or "ZoomText Magnifier/Reader Home Annual License".
