No, it needs t be checked, the control reads as follows:
Disable hardware graphics acceleration
You "disable" it if you check the box.

I use JAWS 2018, Windows 10, Outlook 16. JAWS behaves very sluggishly

Re: JAWS Becomes Sluggish When Writing Emails in Outlook

 

At one point my I3 system did what you described and I don't know what happened, but without me doing anything this is for the most part not a problem any more. That particular system is still not nearly as snappy as my other systems which are I5 and I7, but I can understand that it is certainly annoying.

Disable hardware graphics acceleration check box checked Play animated GIFs check box not checked is just how I now have it set... again, it seems to be doing better and only time will tell.

Re: JAWS Becomes Sluggish When Writing Emails in Outlook

Zel Iscel
 

Hi listers,

I can't thank you enough for your valuable tips on this topic! Jaws has been bugging me for years with various laptops I've bought in that time. Your tips have resolved my problems to a great extent although Outlook still crashes at times when I use it with Jaws. The answer for me was to ' Disable hardware graphics acceleration'.

I find this is a Jaws issue. NVDA works ok with Outlook without having to disable hardware graphics acceleration.

Like Rick, I use Outlook because it's the program used for emails in the corporate sphere. It also has the calendar which I find very useful.

Cheers
Zel

Hi all,

I use JAWS 2018, Windows 10, Outlook 16. JAWS behaves very sluggishly
in
Outlook when crafting messages. I have uninstalled and reinstalled
Outlook, and that has not fixed the issue. I currently write my emails
in Notepad and then copy-paste them which is inconvenient.

Can anyone think of other workarounds? I know that this problem does

Check if spell and grammar check as you type is disabled, this might speed things up a bit.

Hi Sieghard,

I haven’t had time to run the install on the latest update, but hopefully can get around to doing it tonight.

This particular email address issue is present on both my Windows 10 machines. Running a stand-alone Office 2016 license on both computers.

Hopefully, after I update and reboot, this will all be moot.

Hi Christobal,

 

Granted I am on a Jaws Beta built, but the auto-suggest feature has worked for me now consistently for many month and while you may not have the official April update (or May update since we are almost in May), this definitely worked for the March update and the February update. Here is an example, I start a new email and type the letter “j”:

 

JAWS Private Beta Group. JAWSBETA@.... (Recent People).
1 of 5
Jonathan Mosen. jmosen@.... (Recent People).
2 of 5
Johnna Simmons. johnnascat@.... (Other Suggestions).
3 of 5
James Robinson. jardatalearningcenter@.... (Other Suggestions).
4 of 5
Jenifer Barr. claudastar@.... (Other Suggestions).
5 of 5

 

As soon as I typed the “J” it read me out the address for the Jaws list, then I simply arrowed down through the other suggestions.

 

 

Regards,

Sieghard

This is a known bug that is still frustratingly present for some of us Jaws 2019 and Office 2016 users.

Every time a new JFW update comes out, I report it and it’s acknowledged and am told that Vispero’s working on a fix. I think the last message I got that hopefully it would finally be addressed with the next Jaws update was back in March of this year. Who knows.

Anyway, one partial workaround is to execute the alt+K command after typing out a few letters of an email address. You’ll then be taken to a list of emails where you can choose from. This won’t work if you don’t have that particular email saved in your address book though.

Hi all,

I use JAWS 2018, Windows 10, Outlook 16. JAWS behaves very sluggishly
in
Outlook when crafting messages. I have uninstalled and reinstalled
Outlook, and that has not fixed the issue. I currently write my emails
in Notepad and then copy-paste them which is inconvenient.

Can anyone think of other workarounds? I know that this problem does
not
come up for most, but I would nonetheless like to know what you would
do in case you were facing this issue. Thank you so much.

Re: JAWS Becomes Sluggish When Writing Emails in Outlook

Another thing that can be attempted is to disable Outlook add-ons. These can sometimes monkey around with Outlook.
Obviously you don't want to disable an add-on that you need, but you'd be surprised what gets enabled. Poke around and turn off what you don't need.

Hi Sieghard,

I haven’t had time to run the install on the latest update, but hopefully can get around to doing it tonight.

This particular email address issue is present on both my Windows 10 machines. Running a stand-alone Office 2016 license on both computers.

Hopefully, after I update and reboot, this will all be moot.

Hi Christobal,

 

Granted I am on a Jaws Beta built, but the auto-suggest feature has worked for me now consistently for many month and while you may not have the official April update (or May update since we are almost in May), this definitely worked for the March update and the February update. Here is an example, I start a new email and type the letter “j”:

 

JAWS Private Beta Group. JAWSBETA@.... (Recent People).
1 of 5
Jonathan Mosen. jmosen@.... (Recent People).
2 of 5
Johnna Simmons. johnnascat@.... (Other Suggestions).
3 of 5
James Robinson. jardatalearningcenter@.... (Other Suggestions).
4 of 5
Jenifer Barr. claudastar@.... (Other Suggestions).
5 of 5

 

As soon as I typed the “J” it read me out the address for the Jaws list, then I simply arrowed down through the other suggestions.

 

 

Regards,

Sieghard

This is a known bug that is still frustratingly present for some of us Jaws 2019 and Office 2016 users.

Every time a new JFW update comes out, I report it and it’s acknowledged and am told that Vispero’s working on a fix. I think the last message I got that hopefully it would finally be addressed with the next Jaws update was back in March of this year. Who knows.

Anyway, one partial workaround is to execute the alt+K command after typing out a few letters of an email address. You’ll then be taken to a list of emails where you can choose from. This won’t work if you don’t have that particular email saved in your address book though.

Or you could use Open VPN which is an open source vpn client for windows.  It's free and all you need do is to download the vpn server's .opvpn files, put them in the Open VPN's config folder and away you go.  Cheers!

Hi Sameer,

As well as using individual VPN clients which would need to be accessible with JAWS, it's possible to set up VPN connections manually in Windows. The advantage of this is that you can use any VPN service which makes its settings visible, you aren't restricted to ones with accessible clients and you don't have to worry about the client inadvertently being made inaccessible via an update.

While it's slightly more complicated to set up this way, it's no more complicated than manually configuring an email account.

As for which service to use, I use Hide My Ass though no doubt others will have their own recommendations.
