I realize that you can't speak for others, and that each of us has different needs, priorities, and biases, but I wonder why why some find Jaws to be clunky while others (such as you) are quite satisfied. I wonder if using "outdated" software (such as Windows-7) contributes to the problem.
That said, while I took advantage of the Jaws offer, I have yet to migrate to Jaws and have yet to download Windows-10. Things are running smoothly and I hate to rock the boat. The other issue which makes me hesitate is Jaws' reliance on the insert key. I use a left-handed keyboard with the microsoft feature Sticky Keys and have never really understood how to incorporate the insert feature with the caps lock key, but I digress.
