moderated Re: Outlook freezes when searching any prior email with JAWS

Van Lant, Robin


I don’t have the Outlook issue, but I definitely have had some issues with large Excel files, especially those with pivot tables or filtering turned on.  I’m still on JAWS 2019.  I don’t have any answers for you, just empathy.

Subject: Outlook freezes when searching any prior email with JAWS



I work on group mailbox and personal mailbox in my workplace and frequently need to search a particular earlier email. The trouble is it hangs the outlook and have to restart it usually everytime I search any email. I think it could be due to the fact it has to search large number of emails…

Does it happen to any of you as well?

I use JAWS 2020 on Outlook 2016. And I have 8 GB RAM.

I had the same issue with JAWS 2019 as well.

In fact, the same happens if I open any heavy excel file with several tabs, it also freezes and have to restart the same.
