The problem doesn't happen on Windows 7.
Just on 10.

No its not.
If you disable the Freedom Scientific accessibility Display driver in device manager it helps somewhat .
Playback is instant but the recording dialog is still unresponsive nearly.
This is with new Jaws 2022beta.
I have reported it.
Also as I said , run the default user directory and it works fine.
Its definitely something to do with scripts and jaws.

Well that's not good news. I hope FS finds time to sort that out as I was planning to buy Jim's scripts for SF. Kinda defeats the purpose of the scripts, eh?

I've tried using SF with narrator and this doesn't happen with narrator.

Anyone got any ideas?

This never happened with Windows 7 and Sound Forge Pro 9 or studio 10.
