Question:
Why does JAWS appear to connect to the Internet?

Answer:
When you start JAWS or MAGic, several components initialize and prepare for the option of connecting to the Internet to perform the following tasks:

Product registration.

Product activation.

Product updating using Freedom Scientific's Automatic Update methods.
This initialization process is detected by some virus protection and Internet security applications, which alert you that an application is attempting to access the Internet. JAWS and MAGic do not access the Internet unless you manually choose the options to do so for one of the previously mentioned tasks.
