I have the same issue and essentially the same configuration (Windows 7, 4GB 
RAM, solid state high-speed hard drive, dual core CPU).  If I close and restart 
Jaws, it clears up for a while.  The problem is that, once in this state, it 
can take several minutes to get Jaws to close.  I tend to swap to NVDA if I am 
going to do more intensive iTunes stuff.

Forgot to mention, I have a computer with a intel dual core CPU, windows 7 
ultimate 32 bit and 4 gigabytes of RAM. I would have added more, but since my 
computer doesn't allow me to have more than 4 gigabyte of memory ( it can be 
upgraded to up to 8, but since it is 32 bit, it would have been a waste of

Hello all,


I know the topic of iTunes comes up periodically. I can navigate iTunes with 
Jaws pretty well, however, if I try to play anything or do anything very 
intensive with iTunes, my computer and especially Jaws becomes very, very 
sluggish. I find I am completely unable to play anything while I'm on the 
computer, as others do. Maybe it's weird to want to play a song while using 
Jaws to get around, but occasionally I would like to be able to do so, the way 
sighted people can play their music while working. Does anyone else have this 
problem with Jaws becoming progressively more unresponsive with iTunes? I have 
found it with JFW 11 and 12, using a windows 7 machine.


Thanks, Bonnie
