Yes and it does not make any difference.  This has been going on for a while.  I cannot recall when it first began.  I have had a lot of things going on in my life plus what is going on in our country of course.  I just do not recall when it began, but it has been a while.

I’ve not experienced this.

Have you closed everything and rebooted?

Hi Everyone,


I have 2 computers one has Office 2016 and the second has Office 2013.  I mostly use Word and outlook.  When I use the spell check , most, but not all the time the spell check dialogue is sluggish. 


I have the latest version of JAWS 2020 installed.  I have windows 10 on both computers.


This occurs in both Office programs I mentioned earlier.  Alt-tab away from the window and returning back does not solve anything.  Sometimes if I close JAWS and launch it again, it does help.  It does not seem to matter if I have other programs open as well or not.  Any ideas on how to resolve this?


Thanks in advance for any help.
