Re: beginning to think that JAWS 5.1 is more stable than 6

Okay,  What are the display settings which work best for you while using 
JAWS 6? I'll set mine to match and see what happens.  Thanks.

Sincerely Yours,

I wonder if it might be a problem with the display settings, or possibly
with the way that JAWS is working with your video card settings.
JAWS 5 appears to be working well but it's interesting that JAWS 6 is not.
I'm using the ILM build of 6 and if nothing else, performance here has
improved. Pages load faster, response time is much improved and things are
just beautiful here.
