There is probably no screen reader that never crashes. However, I've heard rumors that WindowEyes crashes much less frequently than JAWS. As far as I know, though, there is no solid evidence to back this up.

At any rate, if you are considering switching to WindowEyes, keep in mind that WindowEyes behaves very differently than JAWS. That is true of keystrokes, as well as verbosity. I myself can't stand WindowEyes!

How can we know that Window Eyes wouldn't crash? Whichever I get, I'm going to have to out and out get the newest version.

Yes Carrylin, I agree witht the crashing issue on the issue with Jaws. I
am thinking of switching to window-eyes.

I've been having more and more problem with the crashing in the last year,
but thought it was because my windows and JAWS are pretty old. This is a
little discouraging to think I'll still have to put up with it even after
spending probably a thousand plus.

Yes, JAWS is becoming a crashing bore.

If you're using the latest version of JAWS, that's probably due to the
fact
that JAWS stops working, and then restarts itself. It happens to me all
the
time. I understand the reasoning behind it, but you still don't have
speech
during that minute or so. You're wondering if your computer has frozen
or
what's going on. FS built that into JAWS 15 and 16. In 15, you can
control
when JAWS restarts. In version 16, it restarts for you.

When I play a game that requires jaws, I notice that every once in a
while
jaws will stop talking for sometimes a minute. Then it'll start back up
again.
