Re: JAWS Becomes Sluggish When Writing Emails in Outlook

This is a tough one. Are you using plain text or HTML to respond? I cannot think of any Outlook options that may cause this behavior when typing. Could it be a JAWS setting? Sorry, not much help I know.

Hi all,

I use JAWS 2018, Windows 10, Outlook 16. JAWS behaves very sluggishly in Outlook when crafting messages. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Outlook, and that has not fixed the issue. I currently write my emails in Notepad and then copy-paste them which is inconvenient.

Can anyone think of other workarounds? I know that this problem does not come up for most, but I would nonetheless like to know what you would do in case you were facing this issue. Thank you so much.
