I had similar issues on some machines when using Window-Eyes with Audacity. Try unchecking the Selection Toolbar: alt-v, then t and arrow down to Selection Toolbar and press Enter if it is checked. That resolved the issue with Window-Eyes. As Jacob suggested, there is no sluggishness with NVDA.


I am fairly certain that the problem with Window-Eyes was related to the constant updating of time when playing or recording. There may or may not be a similar issue with JAWS. As I mentioned above, it didn't happen with all computers, so may be related to a particular video card.

Hi!
I'm using the same setup without JAWS scripts. I too experience sluggishness, 
in particular when using the shortcut for Stop and Set Cursor. After pressing 
the shortcut I usually press space to hear the exact position. Pressing space 
however, plays from the previous cursor position, even if pressed repeatedly. 
Only after some time Audacity adjusts and space plays from the current cursor 
position. Just in case it matters, I have imported files copied to the project, 
rather than loading them on demand. I'd also be grateful of any ideas to 
improve the performance.

Cheers! Robbie

Subject: [audacity4blind] Sluggish Behavior in Audacity

Hi.


I'm using Audacity 2.1.3 with Windows 10 and Jaws 18.


About a month ago or so, I downloaded the Jaws scripts available for Audacity.


I've used the control+2 hotkey to set the zoom.


I'm experiencing a lot of sluggish behavior in Audacity when editing
recordings.


Are there any ad-ons I should disable?


Is there another solution to this problem?


Dave
