Re: suggested amount of RAM for jaws and windos 10


You almost certainly don't need more than 8GB of RAM unless you use memory intensive programs which the majority of users don't. Did the person test your computer with and without JAWS running? Did the tech check your memory usage during slow performance? Did you test it running Narrator?

Be suspicious any time a tech blames a screen-reader for a problem. Of course, a screen-reader may cause a problem, but techs love to blame screen-readers for problems just because they are unfamiliar with the programs and they aren't typical kinds of programs, they are made for blind people, not a typical program, and of course they are therefore suspect and second rate programs.

Also, what synthesizer are you using? The newer symthesizers use more memory but Eloquence doesn't use much and I've used it without the screen-reader causing any problems on machines that had enough memory, but barely.

Subject: [TechTalk] suggested amount of RAM for jaws and windos 10

What is the suggested amount of ram for windows 10 and jaws?

My system is very slow and I've had a guy who is an active computer updater look at it and he says it's probably jaws that is slowing down the system.

He's the same guy who updated my system from the factory default windows 7 to windows 10 when microsoft offered the free update.
