I don't see the price of jaws going up. It's an interesting theory, but all the evidence suggests VFO is consolidating, hammering away on their commercial exclusivities, and battoning down to milk the next four years or so for as much money as there is in the pot. Then they will bow out. With the looming end of the desktop pc, the rise of nvda, voiceover, and mobile, and the gradual demise of special funding for government and education special access, there won't be a market share for jaws in any form soon.
Just to keep this on topic, I'm using nvda in my college courses and it's handling sequal server like a boss. I still prefer mobile to do my html and java script courses as well as my math, but I need windows debuggers. I'm totally good with how NVDA is handling windows 10, microsoft edge, and win 10 mail. The college has a five point floating site licence for Jaws because another student asked for jaws support, but I believe my technologist is working to get NVDA into the working disk images for the labs and library systems, as well as setting up some sort of corporate donation program for NVDA. The death of the desktop will kill jaws, and may take NVDA with it, but til then, I'm so happy with NVDA, and I think the college is too.
