the problem is the voice synthisizer voices share the same on board computer c p u as all the other running programs. especially programs like that are continuely accessing the drive, like antivirus and malware bytes, listening to music or you tube etc.
the c p u will pause the sound card voice a few mili seconds so it can do something else. then turn the sound card back on and continue from where it left off.
you won't notice this if your c p u is fast enough.
you might be able to stop the stuttering if you use a dedicated sound card, not a u s b headphone. which still uses the c p u to process the sound.
they have there own sound processor to take the processing load off the computer c p u so it can do other chores

I’m having the same issues on a Dell laptop with Windows 10 and Jaws 18.
Please let me know if you find out what the issue is …… Windows 10 or Jaws.

Sorry for the cross post. I’ve not seen any one on either list state this as an
issue, however, there are two of us here that are having the same problem. The
JAWS stutter gets so bad that you can’t complete any task. The speech will get
so bad that you think that JAWS has just crashed. It also obviously affects
scanning messages, documents and even just reading items off of your desktop.

Both of us also have Lenovo laptops and I’m not ruling that out either. The
interesting thing is that I disconnected my Braille display and it has gotten
much better, however, that’s not the kind of fix I want. I’m really interested
in any feedback I can get to resolve this. We are moth using the latest
JaWS2018, but I’ve seen this happening for a while and just thought it was my
Laptop. We are using Windows10 and we both tried different versions of JAWS
going back to JAWS16 and till have this problem.
