Hello Kimberly,
I am using the new update to JAWS18 and Internet Explorer11 on a
Windows10 pc with the Eloquence speech synthesizer profile. With this
set up, I am not encountering the issues you describe. I went to the
New Yorker site and was also having a heck of a time reading the
articles too. I found that when I enabled an ad-blocker such as
Ad-block plus, the issue with the New Yorker site disappeared and the
responsiveness that I was used to in reading content returned. I have
had some crashes with leaving the ad-block plus enabled on certain
websites so you may want to disable it when sites are working but
having it available helps in this situation.

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.
