Mine is a home-built machine, but I've tried it also on Gateway systems, as well as Dell, and I've gotten the same response. Sound card wise, it's been everything from the built-in sound cards on the Gateway and Dell machines, to Creative X-FI Elite Pro to even my good recording card the Digital Audio Lab Card Deluxe. All of the above mentioned systems have 2GB. of memory, and some have built-in video, and others are using separate video cards. All of them are using Windows XP, and they've all got different bios. The only thing that I've kind of stumbled upon is that it seems to not happen as often using JFW 12, and that if I leave JFW set to its default speaking rate, then it doesn't seem to happen at all.

You Can do this either by phone or at their web page.

When I had my wife look at the screen, everything works just fine visually, but JFW some how locked up the sound card that it's using. The only way to get things back to normal is to power down and restart. I've even tried it on other computers and other sound cards and I'm still getting the same results.

I'm having problems with Jaws on the internet. When I'm on a webpage and am using my up or down arrow keys to move fast up and down a page for example, Jaws will suddenly stop talking, and won't re-start, not even when I go into the Jaws folder and sellect from there or use a short cut key. It's happened a number of times today, and the only way round it is if I re-boot my laptop, which I know isn't good for my hard drive. I'm not sure what's caused this problem, but I have been getting error messages from Microsoft asking me if I'd like to send an error report, but it doesn't say what the error is or how I fix it. Could the problem be net-based or something? Any advice would be wellcome. Thanks from Lori Duncan.
