Windows 7: Access 2010 - moving between text boxes takes time

Access 2010 - moving between text boxes takes time

I have a form which has many text boxes. My default language has been set to Arabic so each text box accepts Arabic entry to begin with. In some text boxes I need to enter English only, so I have set the language in that text box to be English. When the cursor comes to this text box, it takes little time than usual. After entering the text to move to the next text box also it takes a little more time. To sum up, whenever the cursor reaches the text box that has been set to accept a particular language, it takes more time to enter and exit. How can I overcome this problem.

Perhaps it is doing spelling and grammar checks?

Some information about using different languages in Access:

It would seem that is not the problem:
Check spelling and grammar - SharePoint Workspace - Microsoft Office

Quote:
Check spelling and grammar automatically

This section explains how automatic spelling and grammar checking works and how to turn it on or off.
Notes
  • There is no option to check spelling while you type in Access, Excel, or Project.
  • Grammar checking is available only in Outlook and Word.
So it is back to search and research.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find any alternative answer.

However, I wondered how you navigate the fields. Here is a comprehensive list of keyboard shortcuts for Access:

How can I overcome this problem, as the user is finding the system slow, as it pauses a bit when moving from one field on a form to another

Pausing between fields appear when I set a default keyboard language in the properties of the text box. If I do not set the default keyboard language, then the user has to use the keyboard shortcut key to switch between languages. At times when the user has to update a lot of data, he finds it irritating to use the keyboard shortcut to switch between langauges

Here is some advice for you to consider, on methods of switching between languages:

Switch between different languages by using the Language bar

Use the Language bar to switch between languages that use different keyboard layouts. When you switch a language by using the Language bar, the keyboard layout changes to the native keyboard for that language.
Use the Language bar if any one of the following conditions is true:
  • You want to switch between a Latin-based language (English, French) and a non-Latin-based language (Arabic, Chinese).
  • You only want to switch between non-Latin-based languages (Greek, Russian).
  • You prefer to use native keyboard layouts when typing in different Latin-based languages.
.
Switch between languages using the Language bar


You must enable the keyboard layout for two or more languages in the Windows operating system before you can see and use the Language bar. If you have not enabled the keyboard layouts for the languages that you want to use, enable them now following the steps in Enable keyboard layouts for different languages. In most cases, when you enable a keyboard layout the Language bar automatically appears in the taskbar or appears on the desktop. If the Language bar does not automatically appear after you enable a keyboard, see Where is the Language bar in this article.
  1. Open your document and place the cursor in the document where you want to start to type text in a different language.
  2. Click the language icon on the Language bar, and then click the language that you want to use.
Keyboard shortcut To switch between keyboard layouts, press ALT+SHIFT.
Note The icon is an example, and it shows when English is the language of the active keyboard layout. The actual icon shown on your computer depends on the language of the active keyboard layout.
If you have set up more than one keyboard layout for a single language, you can switch between layouts by clicking the language icon on the Language bar, and then clicking the keyboard layout that you want to use. The name on the indicator changes to reflect the active keyboard layout.
  1. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to switch between different languages.
