Hi listers,

I can't thank you enough for your valuable tips on this topic! Jaws has been bugging me for years with various laptops I've bought in that time. Your tips have resolved my problems to a great extent although Outlook still crashes at times when I use it with Jaws. The answer for me was to ' Disable hardware graphics acceleration'.

I find this is a Jaws issue. NVDA works ok with Outlook without having to disable hardware graphics acceleration.

Like Rick, I use Outlook because it's the program used for emails in the corporate sphere. It also has the calendar which I find very useful.

Cheers
Zel

Alt + G will toggle graphics acceleration once you are on Advanced, you can entirely do it by keyboard shortcut:
Alt + F followed by T then A for advanced and then Alt + G

Hi, Rick. Cristóbal wrote:

File, options advanced. You can either tab forever or shift tab a few times till you get to these options.
Disable hardware graphics acceleration check box checked Play animated GIFs check box not checked I as you can see, also have the JIF's disabled and in general, I have pretty much anything having to do with visual indicators or animations turned off wherever I find them.
I believe there's another place in Outlook options where you can access the hardware acceleration checkbox, but this is the one I know of off hand.

I hope this helps you, Rick.

Would you please repeat the steps to disable graphic acceleration?

Thank you,

Rick

Is there any reason you can’t use Thunderbird?

Hi All,

So I implemented your suggestion of disabling graphic acceleration, and that has certainly improved things, but it still becomes sluggish sometimes with JAWS. It does emit air when it does this. I have to type out my mails elsewhere and then copy-paste them, which is a real pain. I also have to keep going to desktop or elsewhere and then coming up, for the short respite of being able to use Outlook seamlessly.

Best,
Rahul

Hi,
Sounds like you got the issue fixed. No, plain text vs HTML should
not make a difference but was trying to eliminate the small stuff
first. The extra air indicates , as has been said, increased CPU load.

Dan, I think plain text, but I am not sure. Could that make a difference?
Also, my laptop emits some air from the vents on the side - more than
usual
- when it becomes sluggish like this.

Hi,
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.
Best,
Rahul
