I thank all those who found time to respond to my issue.
Brian, My GBRam is a low grid. It is just 2GB. But even with that I
don't have this problem with JAWS. But as I said yesterday, chrome
appears to be reasonably fine with the screen reader, although firefox
and internet explorer are almost unusable.
I am thinking of increasing my GB ram with an SDCard.

Well I'd not go that far but it is faster on lower spec machines,

Use Chrome, it is better than either Firefox or Internet Explorer.

Subject: [nvda] Problems With NVDA
I am having problems with my NVDA screen reader.
The screen reader is just too slow when I am browsing the internet.
When I am doing some other work like word processing or reading documents
off line, it is not slow.
This problem has nothing to do with the websites, as I don't have this slow
problems online with JAWS. I use a demo copy of JAWS.
Secondly, when I visit a website, or even some times when I launch a web
browser like internet explorer or firefox, I hear "internet explorer
unknown" or "firefox unknown" and the screen goes quiet, and when I press
the arrow down key, that is what I keep hearing. Some times, when I am on a
site, or trying to open a site, the screen reader crashes, and disables the
computer itself. I just have to shut it down, and then restart it all over
Does anyone understand the problem I am having with my NVDA screen reader?
I use windows7 32 bit on a laptop.
I have the latest update of the screen reader.
Hope to read a helpful response.
I am Ibrahim.
