Re: How to Fix Sluggish Responsiveness When Arrowing Through a Word Document

Nothing inherently evil about comparisons is there? If someone else
can do it, this means it can be done, which in itself is a valuable
data point. It is in our best interest to compare our tools, improve
them based on each other, and select the right one for the right job.

Gene, I will admit that the speed of my older OptiPlex desktop may well be a factor and I may just have to accept that fact. However, and I hesitate to say this as I don't wish to start a comparison war among users, I don't recall ever encountering this with JAWS, including on this same machine. In fairness, there is a very, very slight difference with JAWS in Word as opposed to JAWS with other word processors in that there is a small delay but it is very slight, hardly noticeable and very acceptable. The point that I'm making is that using Word on this slower machine does not give me a slow experience on a global level.

I don't know if it is still the case, but Word used to have a responsiveness problem in general, as far as I know, with screen-readers. Perhaps the increased speed of the other computers is partly why you don't experience it with them.

Have you tried running the com registration fixing tool in NVDA tools?

I doubt it will help, but it won't hurt.
