I was having no problems with JAWS at all on my new laptop with 16 GB of RAM until I started using Outlook.  Now every once in a while when arrowing through the list of emails in the inbox, JAWS will stop talking and I have to restart it.  This doesn’t happen often, maybe a couple times a week, and I am in Outlook all of the time.

Yea, with my current processor, it’s happening a lot even after I went from 6 to 16 gb memory.

Too bad I can’t afford a more speedy laptop. I find things are better with Jaws 2018.

I was having this problem with a Windows 10 laptop that was only just better than the minimum specifications required to run Jaws 2020.

 

I decided to splash out on a laptop with an intel I-7 processer and 16 GB of ram, and the difference is astonishing. I can count on one hand the number of times this has happened over the past 4 months, previously it was happening every day, several times a day.

 

Cheers, Jon
