Re: Jaws 18 dragging in IE11

Interesting. The situation was much improved for me when I reverted to
version 17. As for where/when it occurs, I was doing nothing more
complicated than trying to read an article.

Still did not fix. Still a problem inversion 18. Primarily win doing a find,
or system tray, while inside Internet explore. Very prosperous

Well, at least I know it's not my hardware/configuration. Guess I'll
just go back to version 17.

Thanks for the verification.

Hi All,

I'm using Jaws 18 on my work laptop with windows 7 and IE11 and I'm
noticing quite a bit of dragging as I attempt to read through web
pages. For example, this morning I was trying to read an article in
the New Yorker and having a hell of a time. As I arrow down the page I
encountered several seconds of silence before Jaws would read each
line. Sometimes arrowing back up a few lines would sort of wake jaws
up and get it moving again.

I switched back to version 17 and the delays disappeared. I was able
to read the article with no problems or delays.

Is anyone else seeing anything like this?

Incidentally, I am using the previous release of version 18, not the
one that just released.
