Re: more Jaws problems from my list...


No harm in trying Eloquence and see if you indeed experience the same problems. When dealing with stuff like that any solution is usually a process of trial and error or, if you prefer, of elimination.
I haven't used a hardware synthesizer probably since the days of Windows 95 or at least Windows 98. I am not saying it's wrong to use one, but most systems especially nowadays have more than enough computing power and RAM to handle a software synthesizer especially one like Eloquence, but even Vocalizer nowadays is super

I am shy of software synthesizers as offered with Jaws. The triple talk, being a peripheral, so to speak, is less strain on the system in regards to resources. This is a triple talk issue and both sides blame the other...

Does this speaking these strange characters happen with other synthesizers or just the tripple talk? I have had some websites where the tripple talk does not work, but other synths do work.

Hi All,

To begin, I thank you all for helping Zel and me with the sluggishness
Jaws due to not disabling the graphics accelerator option. This did show a great amount of improvement but I still notice some sluggishness, but not as bad, in MS Xcell.

Now, let?s work on a couple more issues I have with Jaws.

First, I could be going down through a website one line at a time when
Jaws begins to read some sort of java script. It just continues to read so many characters of all kinds. Including letters, numbers and symbols as punctuation marks etc. It is reading at a very high speed, as well and it is difficult to hear all characters read aloud.

There is no way to stop this and I either have to do a hard shut down
since the pc now becomes frozen while Jaws goes crazy or I turn off my external synthesizer and jaws and then go through a process of turning all back on in a special sequence.

I use: Windows 10, Jaws 2019 latest update and a triple-talk USB
synthesizer. My pc has 8 GB of ram and has plenty of amount when I put a test on the system with many programs open and functioning simultaneously.

Is there a setting or a hopeful fix to prevent this from happening?
is very difficult when I am going over code received from colleagues and my pc goes senile on me.

Next, when I hit F7 to do a spell check, Jaws practically goes to
sleep. I
hit escape or tab over to the original outlook message and copy paste into a Microsoft Word document to do the spell/grammar check.

Any thoughts on this baffling issue?

I hope to hear of all your thoughts regarding these problems addressed.

Thanks to all,
