Ctrl+Q quits Skype 8 instantly. The systray menu that pops up does not take focus and does not indicate to screen readers which item is selected, according to my tests.

it works in a pinch..
As for quitting skype try tht and see if that works. If it does not
just clise it and put it in the system try and set yourself to inactive
or sign out.

the toolbar in skype itself, and arrowing down to the sign out option.
You'll find this under the skype menu. I just hope that microsoft
realizes that they are likely to lose customers over the massive
drastic changes in skype. Sometimes I think they care more about their
pockets and getting rich, rather than making things user-friendly for
their customers.

Subject: [skypeenglish] Quitting Skype 8

Hello all,

I have just upgraded from the classic desktop Skype 7 to Skype 8 on my
machine running Windows 10 and the latest JAWS and Doug's latest
script, Revision 39.

In previous versions I could quit without signing out from the Skype
menu in system tray, now when I go to system tray, Skype is there but
the menu appears impossible to navigate, nothing is announced when
cursor or tab keys are pressed, however when I press insert+b, a set of
options is announced, the last of these being quit, so it seems that a
sighted person can click here to quit Skype, does anyone know if it is
possible to quit Skype with a screen reader?
