Hi All!

Have just been on to microsoft disability desk, but they couldn't really
help, suggesting that i contact Levono.

I'm going to do a search to see if they've got a support desk.

Are you saying that the escape key plus the function key can act as a toggle key between Lenovo functions and let's say JAWS functions?

On some Lenovo PC's you can press FN+Escape to switch between Lenovo hot keys and normal F key function. You only have to do it once because it'll keep the setting even you reboot.

If I didn't have a sighted person to turn off the Lenovo function keys in the bios, the only way to turn them off, I would take the laptop to Best buy and have them do it.

unfortunately it looks like there is no Solution für this Behaviour. Does your Spreadsheet have macros in it? I've noticed that Jaws becomes sluggish if i'm working with sheets running several macros.

Yes, I still continue to have problems with Excel not responding.  There is no specific pattern.  Yesterday I was working on a spreadsheet with my husband.  I was not editing the spreadsheet but just cross checking information.  After about 15 minutes JAWS stop responding or when to a mode where it takes at least 30 seconds every time I move to another cell or edit.  I would have to exit out of Excel, exit off my computer and then restart.  This happened three times before I was able to complete my task.  I am currently using the most updated version of Excel 2016 and the most updated version of Windows 10 with the latest updated version of JAWS 18.  I would love any possible solutions.

Hi Everyone,

is anyone experiencing very slow responses with Excel and Jaws? Both stop responing as soon as i edit a cell. It takes about 5 to 10 seconds for excel to respond. This issue is not present without JAWS running in the background. I've tried several setups Windows7 Windows10 with JAWS 15 to 2018 and Excel 2010,2016 and its always the same behaviour. 

Any ideas?

Thanks,
