Not yet, but I will.
Currently, I’m dealing with a major problem with Outlook on the new Windows 10 computer.
Have been on the phone almost constantly with the Microsoft Accessibility Hotline, my internet service provider, and others. The problem occurred after an internet outage here Thursday evening.

Have you installed this little application? From what another person posted who has a Del it seems to fix the problem.

It happens with Narrator too.
I’m not sure what to do from here.

Hi, Tom. Try turning on Narrator, and see if you get the same delay through Narrator. If so, you might have one of the sound cards which go to sleep frequently, and need to be awoken by key presses.
As some of you may remember, I’m continuing to set up a new Dell Windows 10 computer with Jaws.
The computer has an Intel I7 processor, 16 gigabytes of ram, a 12 gigabyte solid-state drive, and a 1 terabyte mechanical hard drive.
I mention this right from the start, because this computer should have plenty of horse power to work well with Jaws.
I have noticed that, when typing something, after I stop using the computer for 30 seconds or so, I do not get Jaws feedback until I press at least four or five keys. In other words, there’s a considerable delay until Jaws starts speaking again.
I am thinking this is a Jaws issue, but am not totally sure.
I’m currently using Jaws 2018, and plan to upgrade to Jaws 2019 soon, although I’m a bit hesitant to do so right now because of other known problems with Jaws 2019 and MS Word.
Are there some settings I should look at to try to address this issue?
Thanks as always!
