Have you tried unloading Jaws and running NVDA or Narrator, and if so, do you have the same problems? If possible, have you had someone sighted use your computer and without any screen reading program running do the same memory problems occur? Also, do you have the same memory problems with running an earlier version of Jaws?
Stay safe & take care. Mike.

Subject: I’m grasping at straws, but has anyone had memory problems with jaws?
Okay I have been running the latest version of JAWS 2021 since this started in February, so I am on my third update. I have a new Dell XPS that keeps running out of memory. The amount of ram, 32 GB, definitely isn’t the problem. I’ve chased memory leaks down in all of the normal ways, and I can’t find anything. I have reinstalled windows twice at this point.
Has anyone seen issues of a memory leak with JAWS? As I said in the subject line I’m grasping at straws, and I doubt it’s the problem, but I figured it didn’t hurt to ask.
