Ugh, I'll look into that. Very nice of us to do troubleshooting for FS, free
of charge, isn't it?

I reported to FS (or VFO) the following:

Since JAWS 17 last two minor builds, there is a 15 to 20 second delay when I
press Ctrl+F to do a find in IE. I'm also using Windows 7 on a 32-bit
machine. This has been annoying me for several weeks, and I finally reported

Furthermore, I find that if I shut down JAWS 17 and launch JAWS 15 there is
absolutely no delay at all.

Same delay symptoms when invoking JAWS+F7 or JAWS+F5 in web pages. 15 to 20
second delay before responding.

FS suggested I remove all my startup processes using MSConfig, and just
enable JAWS. That fixed the problem, for now with JAWS 17. Now I'm asked by
FS to start enabling my startup processes one at a time until I find one
that is causing the problem. Essentially I'm doing the troubleshooting work
for FS -- so be it.

Give that a try yourself and see if the delays or sluggishness disappear.

I've noticed a lag. That said, I'm a lot more sensitive to time than the
average person thanks to my decades of music performance and composition.
There's a clear lag in Outlook -- I delete something from the junk email
folder and there's a pause before Jaws reads the next sender and title to
me, and it wasn't like that with 15.
Is there a way to make Jaws respond in a snappier way? Perhaps adjust a
buffer size, for example?

Nicole -

I'm running JAWS 17 on a Windows 7 system and only notice lagging if there's
something really busy going on: things like a massively busy web page
loading or mail coming into Outlook while I'm simultaneously trying to
compose or read a message. Overall, though, I don't see it any less
responsive than any prior version.

Okay, I just upgraded to Jaws 17 from Jaws 15. I'm running Windows 7 on a
Dell dual core machine.
I've managed to not have any of the annoying Jaws freeze problems in Outlook
that I had in 15 so far. However, I'm noticing that Jaws 17 seems slower. It
doesn't respond as quickly when reading things. Is this a known issue, or
something I'm dealing with because I'm running Windows 7? It slows down
things like clearing the junk email folder each morning, and it seems more
