well one reason although slightly off topic is they buy the cheapest crappyest system possible you can get.
it lasted me for a couple years before finally breaking.
It would die during and before exams.
every 2 weeks I reformatted the system just to keep it going.
I think the longest time I had the system running was 6 months.
They are also slack and sometimes slow.
sometimes they don't communicate well.
Case in point I was trying to service my brailler because it was broke and out of use for a bit.
I was directed through several offices ending finally in an answerphone.
luckily I knew the manufacturer of my unit on a personal basis so I can get out that way but if I didn't then hmmph.

Hi Shaun,
That's the way in which most users end up with Jaws. Freedom
Scientific has a lot of pull with state agencies and rehab centers for
the blind in which they promote only Freedom Scientific products. As a
result whenever you show up for a job or something the state agency
will only agree to buy Jaws, Openbook, or Magic for your job instead
of what the end user wants regardless if you have Hal, Window-Eyes, or
something else at home. That is a big reason why I no longer deal with
state agencies and their so-called techs because they are  bias
towards other products out there.
