The message you answered is a resend of a message she wrote on January 10. No idea how that happened, but I answered it when it first hit the list.

   So here are some questions, based on what you have said here, doug:

 

 

   1.  does this skype 8.2 client work with windows 10, or are we going to

   be

 

   forced eventually to use Skype UPW?

 

   2.  Is skype 8.2 accessible?  You said you are scripting it, and I

   heard it

 

   wasn't very accessible.  I know when I tried Skype UPW by accident, I

   found

 

   that there are no menus, as is usually the case with any Windows app

   from

 

   the app store, and you have to tab around it to find whatever you

   want.  I

 

   need to look at the scripts you wrote for this more closely, so I

   apologize

 

   for not being so familiar, but I think, when I first looked at them, I

 

   noticed that you still have to tab a lot more, even with the scripts,

   than

 

   you did with previous versions, like to call someone, or hang up,

   etc.?  how

 

   easy is it to use?

   Skype UWP, also called Skype for Windows 10, only works on Windows 10.

 

   Microsoft wrote a new Skype 8.12 client for use on Windows 7, 8.1, etc.

   I am

 

   not done scripting that one yet.

   Answering items in two messages in this thread at once:

 

 

   SkypeWatch: There should be no need for this, because Skype UWP uses

   the

 

   Windows 10 Toast system for displaying alerts, and JAWS already speaks

   those

 

   automatically.

 

 

   Jerry said he wanted to wait until I finish the scripts. The Skype UWP

 

   scripts are already out there. The ones I have not released are the

   ones for

 

   Skype 8, which is for Windows versions older than 10.

      Dear sir, the matter of fact is that the last update of Skype

   classic

 

      came on October 6^th 2017 since then several versions of Skype UWP

   and

 

      new Skype for desktop has come but nothing has come for Skype

   classic

 

      meaning that Microsoft has left updating Skype classic.

 

 

      Another thing I'd like to let you know is that when Microsoft will

   kill

 

      that Skype classic, it will be a very bad news for most of visually

 

      challenged persons because of two reasons.

 

 

      Windows 10 app for Skype doesn't have Skype watch and there is a

   sharp

 

      differences between interface of Skype classic and windows app for

 

      Skype.

 

 

      I therefore use to say that we visually challenged people should

 

      exersize using windows 10 app for Skype so when Microsoft kills our

 

      beloved Skype classic, we do have the habbit of using windows 10 app

 

      for Skype.

 

 

      Another encouraging thing is that JAWS script for that app is

   available

 

      though it has a lot of issues for some users.

      Like I've said before. If you are running WIN 10 use the Skype app

   for

 

      WIN 10 that ships with WIN 10. We don't know when MS will kill for

   good

 

      Skype cclassic. The WIN 10 app works great with NVDA and Doug Lee

   has

 

      written JAWS scripts for the WIN 10 app.

      Well I suggest you use SKype for WIN 10 assuming you have WIN 10.

   Skype

 

      classic nags and nags you to try the new Skype. I don't need a nag.

   It

 

      works fine.

        Can you be mor specific? Most of Skype's sounds has changed some.

   If

 

        you use Skype classic their options to check in the sounds area.

   In

 

        Wthe WIN 10 UWP app you can't do much at all.
