moderated Re: JAWS Sluggish After 2.5 Hours of Use Since June Update?

I never have that much open at once.

Without knowing the computer specs, this would be a hard thing to compare.


This could be as much system resources running low as anything.


Having said that, Jaws with the June update has issues with Outlook at the very least.  I have had more times than I can count where just opening an email renders Jaws speechless.


Now, of course, this could be, and probably is, because of the last Microsoft 365 update; but it can be rather frustrating.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5790 laptop, with the i7 chip and 16 GB of RAM and often only have Outlook open when this happens.



Software means never having to say you're finished

Subject: JAWS Sluggish After 2.5 Hours of Use Since June Update?


Hi Everybody,


Has anyone else noticed that JAWS becomes incredibly sluggish and crackling audio can be heard after about 2 or 2.5 hours of intensive use?


Try the following:

  1. Make sure the June JAWS update is running.
  2. Start Chrome or Edge.
  3. Open and use 10 or more tabs, switching between them and working intensively for about 2 hours. Observe that JAWS becomes less and less responsive over time and it is eventually necessary to restart JAWS.


Does anyone else out here experience this situation?
