Fading caption transition requires page reload in IE

I have a horizontally-scrolling feature at www.mauivacationrental.com/view.htm   There are three images which scroll sequentially, and then repeat.  The caption transitions in sync with the image on the screen, using javascript and css.  This works under all major browsers except IE.  The first caption transition is consistent, but the next two often require a page reload.  Is there a way to improve the caption performance under IE?

Currently IE11.  However, I noticed this behavior in IE10 previously.

The current scroll position is used to determine which text element needs to be shown so the varying speed of the scroll, while annoying and probably fixable, should not cause problems with that.

It seems to be a timing issue regarding the image.load function which sets the 'pw' variable.

Try getting rid of the document ready function where the image.load function is set
$(document).ready(function(){
// comment this out or just delete the whole document.ready function
// document.getElementById("pic1").onload = function() { pw = document.getElementById("pic1").width; };
});

Open in new window

and instead doing it directly from the image tag:
document.write('<img id="pic1" src="images/view.jpg" alt="" onload="pw=this.width;"><img id="pic2" src="images/view.jpg" alt="">')

Open in new window
