I wouldn’t say super responsive, it’s not bad. But if you try NVDA with ESpeak, it runs way more responsive than JAWS ever will I think.


I can’t ever imagine JAWS being a lean app, there is too much legacy stuff in there still.


All the best

Jaws 2022 is super responsive in Outlook now and please note I am talking about Outlook 2016 via Microsoft 365 which is the most up to date version, but I assume it would be similar in Office 2019.

No problem with that here.

I Have noticed that the reading of messages when moving up and down the inbox is much improved!

Dear Listers:


After I downloaded and installed the new JAWS Beta the other night I discovered that it wouldn’t read any e-mail messages.  It will tell me who each message is from, but after I open up each message and try to read the message body the text always appears to be blank.  How many of you have noticed this about the new JAWS Beta and what did you do about it?
