moderated Re: Jaws 2020 lag with Outlook 365

Bear in mind though that Outlook 2019 is older than Outlook 365.  2019 tends to “lag”? with updates as well.


All the best

Hi, The preview option is not the issue. I have OUtlook 2019 with Jaws 2020 with all updates current and Windows 10. Definitely lags

Have you tried turning off the preview pane in Outlook?

Hi group,


As I await a response from Vispero support, I’m wondering if anyone is experiencing the following:


I have noticed that the lag while using Outlook 365 with Jaws 2020 is even worse than with Jaws 2019. Arrowing through a message list, Jaws simply stops speaking. I can read the title of the window but that’s it. Then after 3-4 seconds I am able to proceed normally through the list. And it takes about 5 seconds before I can type a reply to a message.

A few months ago I asked about this lag while in a Outlook webinar with the Microsoft accessibility group. They acknowledged the problem but that was about all they said. I can hardly wait to see what Vispero’s take is.


Helpful feedback welcome.
