That's unfortunately true. Here in the U.S. most organizations and
government agencies only recognize Freedom Scientific's products in
any official copacity. However, with free and open source solutions
like NVDA out there one can choose to pass on Jaws and choose to use
NVDA instead. If they want a good professional screen reader GW Micro
has a payment plan for Window-Eyes that is quite affordable on a fixed
income. I think all and all the days of Jaws are numbered. Sooner or
later their customers will see Freedom Scientific for the crooks they
are and walk away. There is no need to continue putting money in
Freedom Scientific's pockets if they continue with their lawsuit crazy
mentality. It just goes to prove what kind of people we are dealing
