Older version of JAWS

3 out of 5 stars

I liked this version of JAWS before there were newer versions introduced because when new versions are released the older versions are not as compatible with certain websites, emails and Microsoft. It's compatible sometimes but other times not so much. It's also quite expensive to update JAWS. I paid £360 to update from version 11 to 17. When you update each version it improves in speed and compatibility.

It works well if there are no new versions.

I find it quite expensive to update. Newer versions devalue older versions.
