I've been having more and more problem with the crashing in the last year,
but thought it was because my windows and JAWS are pretty old. This is a
little discouraging to think I'll still have to put up with it even after
spending probably a thousand plus.

If you're using the latest version of JAWS, that's probably due to the
fact
that JAWS stops working, and then restarts itself. It happens to me all
the
time. I understand the reasoning behind it, but you still don't have
speech
during that minute or so. You're wondering if your computer has frozen or
what's going on. FS built that into JAWS 15 and 16. In 15, you can
control
when JAWS restarts. In version 16, it restarts for you.

One thing to keep in mind is that if JAWS does crash, it now restarts itself without your intervention. JAWS doesn't crash on me very often, but when it does, this feature is really nice.

There is probably no screen reader that never crashes. However, I've heard rumors that WindowEyes crashes much less frequently than JAWS. As far as I know, though, there is no solid evidence to back this up.

At any rate, if you are considering switching to WindowEyes, keep in mind that WindowEyes behaves very differently than JAWS. That is true of keystrokes, as well as verbosity. I myself can't stand WindowEyes!

I've tried WE a couple times and found pretty much the same thing.
Part of it is, I believe, simply being used to jaws and the way it
does things but even with a jaws keymap active it was still enough
different that I kept stumbling. Plus there are certainly things
where WE simply is not as capable, things that matter a great deal to
me, the dictionary being the major item. WE dictionary entries simply
could not deal with numerous punctuation sequences I use all the time.
I will admit that the WE scripting system is vastly better than jaws'
home built language but writing scripts is something I only rarely
need to do and now that jaws supports UIA even that difference isn't
all that important.

As for jaws and crashing I find the current situation with auto
restart far preferable to what it did up until a few years ago where
jaws crashing would very often freeze my entire system and a reboot
was the only way to recover. Waiting thirty seconds to a minute is way
better than wasting five plus minutes going through a reboot (plus
losing all unsaved work).

When I play a game that requires jaws, I notice that every once in a
while
jaws will stop talking for sometimes a minute. Then it'll start back up
again.

There is probably no screen reader that never crashes. However, I've heard rumors that WindowEyes crashes much less frequently than JAWS. As far as I know, though, there is no solid evidence to back this up.

At any rate, if you are considering switching to WindowEyes, keep in mind that WindowEyes behaves very differently than JAWS. That is true of keystrokes, as well as verbosity. I myself can't stand WindowEyes!

How can we know that Window Eyes wouldn't crash? Whichever I get, I'm going to have to out and out get the newest version.

Yes Carrylin, I agree witht the crashing issue on the issue with Jaws. I
am thinking of switching to window-eyes.

I've been having more and more problem with the crashing in the last year,
but thought it was because my windows and JAWS are pretty old. This is a
little discouraging to think I'll still have to put up with it even after
spending probably a thousand plus.

If you're using the latest version of JAWS, that's probably due to the
fact
that JAWS stops working, and then restarts itself. It happens to me all
the
time. I understand the reasoning behind it, but you still don't have
speech
during that minute or so. You're wondering if your computer has frozen
or
what's going on. FS built that into JAWS 15 and 16. In 15, you can
control
when JAWS restarts. In version 16, it restarts for you.

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

The glitch that's driving me nuts is when an Internet app freezes, paralyzing your entire screen. When you finally shake it loose, you lose every open Internet session--what a drag! Except for Office and one old reliable mainframe app, everything we do is done online.

Subject: Re: a problem I'm having

I've tried WE a couple times and found pretty much the same thing.
Part of it is, I believe, simply being used to jaws and the way it does things but even with a jaws keymap active it was still enough different that I kept stumbling. Plus there are certainly things where WE simply is not as capable, things that matter a great deal to me, the dictionary being the major item. WE dictionary entries simply could not deal with numerous punctuation sequences I use all the time.
I will admit that the WE scripting system is vastly better than jaws'
home built language but writing scripts is something I only rarely need to do and now that jaws supports UIA even that difference isn't all that important.

As for jaws and crashing I find the current situation with auto restart far preferable to what it did up until a few years ago where jaws crashing would very often freeze my entire system and a reboot was the only way to recover. Waiting thirty seconds to a minute is way better than wasting five plus minutes going through a reboot (plus losing all unsaved work).
