Re: Slow behavior of NVDA in Outlook 2016

Though I doubt this will help or help much, you might speed things up to an extent by turning off automatically search for errors as I type.  I don't know the exact name of the feature and those who use Word will, I hope discuss the setting more.  I'm running a rather slow computer and I made typing more responsive in firefox when I write text in a webmail edit field, for example, by turning off the feature in Firefox that flags errors as I type. 
 
This sounds like a different problem but it's worth trying this possible solution, just in case.

Running Quick Heal Total Security.  I suspect different people will be running different security software so it's probably an NVDA/Outlook issue.

Add-ons? Do you guys have anti-virus?

These need to be clearly specified
