Hi Megan,

One thing to keep in mind is that Jaws 14 will not run on Windows 10. I think Jaws 16 is the first version that is Windows 10 compatible. I'm not sure of all the differences between Jaws 14 and Jaws 18, but, if you go to the following website, there is a combobox that allows you to choose earlier versions of Jaws and then read the release notes for that version, so that may help you.


Hope this helps,

Good afternoon,

I have a student who is currently using JAWS version 14. I have limited knowledge in this area - does anyone know how it differs from JAWS version 18? She's having a couple of issues and I'm wondering if it is because of the older version or if it's our learning management platform.

Thank you for your feedback.
