grow to over a gig of RAM. By unloading the browsers when not in use my
machines can run for weeks without problems. Jaws seems to lose some
functions after a few days and has to be restarted.

something else that's causing the problem. Oh yeah, I'm also using a
Bluetooth speaker for my sound, so that might be something different.
crackling . A JAWS re start fixes the issue.
No particular reason or pattern for the issue.intermittent and may have multiple causes.
DanI would say I use Jaws pretty intensely, I don't always have 10 browser tabs
open, but I do work often for several hours with very few breaks with at
least 3 or 4 tabs open as well as Outlook, Excel a couple of Notepad files
and Adobe sometimes with 2 or 3 PDF files open. At times I even use Edge as
well as Chrome at the same time so instead of opening more tabs in Edge I
may use Chrome and as I said, I come across this very rarely and I have
never noticed anything which would allow me to reproduce it..
crackling audio can be heard after about 2 or 2.5 hours of intensive use?
intensively for about 2 hours. Observe that JAWS becomes less and less
responsive over time and it is eventually necessary to restart JAWS.
Your life is like a penny. You're going to lose it. The question is:
