Audacity crashing with JAWS screen reader

Post by ptorpey » Sat Aug 12, 2017 3:49 am

I am running the latest version of Windows 10 64-bit and the latest version of the JAWS scdreen reader which is version 18.

When I open or import a wav file into Audacity 2.1.3 with JAWS running, Audacity crashes. This does not happen when JAWS is not running and I am using Narrator.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Note: This problem also recently started happpening with an earlier version of Audacity but I just updated to the latest version of Audacity and the problem is still there with JAWS running.
