Hi list,
I've got an HP ProBook running Win 10. I'm new to this laptop and Win 10, and was curious to know if the Windows app store was accessible with Jaws 17?
Also, are apps like Facebook and YouTube accessible as well, or are the respective websites better to use?
Thanks so much, Shane.

Hi Maria, I agree most of the list that I have don't really operate over a weekend that has a holiday.  Maybe some of the problems happen to people that work during the week.

I am relieved that the problems I noticed were not just me. What is
reported below is exactly what I am experiencing, and the timing matches,
starting a couple of builds ago. FS Support had me do a special command
repair. and it seems to have helped some. But it is now clear that this is

I reported to FS (or VFO) the following:

Since JAWS 17 last two minor builds, there is a 15 to 20 second delay when I
press Ctrl+F to do a find in IE. I'm also using Windows 7 on a 32-bit
machine. This has been annoying me for several weeks, and I finally reported
it.

Furthermore, I find that if I shut down JAWS 17 and launch JAWS 15 there is
absolutely no delay at all.

Same delay symptoms when invoking JAWS+F7 or JAWS+F5 in web pages. 15 to 20
second delay before responding.

FS suggested I remove all my startup processes using MSConfig, and just
enable JAWS. That fixed the problem, for now with JAWS 17. Now I'm asked by
FS to start enabling my startup processes one at a time until I find one
that is causing the problem. Essentially I'm doing the troubleshooting work
for FS -- so be it.

Give that a try yourself and see if the delays or sluggishness disappear.

I've noticed a lag. That said, I'm a lot more sensitive to time than the
average person thanks to my decades of music performance and composition.
There's a clear lag in Outlook -- I delete something from the junk email
folder and there's a pause before Jaws reads the next sender and title to
me, and it wasn't like that with 15.
Is there a way to make Jaws respond in a snappier way? Perhaps adjust a
buffer size, for example?

I'm running JAWS 17 on a Windows 7 system and only notice lagging if there's
something really busy going on: things like a massively busy web page
loading or mail coming into Outlook while I'm simultaneously trying to
compose or read a message. Overall, though, I don't see it any less
responsive than any prior version.

Okay, I just upgraded to Jaws 17 from Jaws 15. I'm running Windows 7 on a
Dell dual core machine.
I've managed to not have any of the annoying Jaws freeze problems in Outlook
that I had in 15 so far. However, I'm noticing that Jaws 17 seems slower. It
doesn't respond as quickly when reading things. Is this a known issue, or
something I'm dealing with because I'm running Windows 7? It slows down
things like clearing the junk email folder each morning, and it seems more
sluggish.

Re: Jaws 17 Lagging

I think the reason why it jumps out at me is because this didn't happen in
15, and I did the upgrade to 17 a couple of days ago and it was obvious to
me as soon as I started doing my normal routine. I've also noticed that
sometimes it gives me a "blank" instead of the first letter of a response in
Outlook.

Hi Nicole,

I am using Windows 10, JAWS 17 (latest build) and Office 2013. The
only slowness I find is with Outlook 2013, where JAWS is slow to respond
when I press Control y to go to a particular folder and when I press Shift
Control v to move messages to a particular folder. However, if I press Shift
Control I to go back to the inbox, JAWS responds immediately. I called FS
about this slowness and was told that this is normal, but it's funny that I
never experienced this before upgrading to Windows 10.

distant past they would implement someone's brainstorm and not worry about
the side effects. I once asked one of the techs how to read a progress bar.
He said to cut out a strip in a piece of cardboard, place it on the screen,
and use a light detector. The job would have been completed before I got
the cardboard properly aligned.

My rant for the week.

Well, that's like comparing apples and oranges. Apples developed their own
screen reading software. I guess I feel that as long as FS and the others
keep at it, there's hope. Was the time we didn't get things until
obsolescence had set in. I won't say I don't get impatient; I do, but it is
still worlds better than it was, and it will continue to be even though it
might be at a snail's pace.

My suspicion is that such problems are going to become a lot more common,
not less. Since Microsoft will update the OS as they feel like it, things
are going to get broken in the normal development process, and we can look
forward to more downtime. Folks on the Apple side of things have dealt with
this for years, where an application will stop working after an upgrade. I
can just hope that your prediction that it'll get easier will bear out,
despite my apprehensions.

It won't come up right away, and trying again results in that message.
Wait
15 to 20 seconds next time to see if it ultimately works.

I just tried Insert-F7 here (Windows 10, JAWS 17, latest update - Firefox)
and it came up immediately.

Once most people are running Windows 10, and most peoples' systems are up to
date, it will be much easier to report and track down bugs, since there
won't be so many different versions to deal with.
