RE: Jaws running sluggishly

Certainly the amount of RAM also affect this.  

It's this gradual slowdown in JAWS responsiveness that's intriguing.  It
seems like there could be a memory or handle or thread leak somewhere.
Can't know for sure unless we observe the performance monitor when JAWS is
running fast, and then observe it again after things slow down, and then
compare the differences in resource allocation.  That might clue us in as to
where the problem might be.

But having too little RAM in the computer could make this slowdown happen
more quickly and to a higher degree.

SoSometimes depending on how much ram you have to run programs on your 
computer Jaws for windows tends to run slowly.
