OK, sounds better. How can we
access that tost notification? (Under Windows
I mean, what hotkeys do we need to use to
access it and then accept the call?

you misunderstand. on windows, skype puts up a tost
notificaation when a call comes in. it's only on the mac and
on the iPhone and iPad and iEverything else and android
devices that the initial call controls are popped up as a

This is pretty bad news,
because we might be pressing space while we are typing
something else, and we might answer a call even if we
don't want to do this.
Even if space will be somehow
blocked by default in the window that appears and we would
need to use another hotkey which is not used very often,
it would be a little better, but still frustrating that
the focus was stolen by another application. It was even a
software design recommendation to not create applications
that steal the focus.
It would be also worse if
we'll need to press Insert+F11 and start searching in the
list of system tray applications or do many Alt+Tab to
reach the Skype window for beeing able to answer the call,
because until we would finish all these movements, the
other party might stop calling.
The new Skype version should
be an improvement, it should be better than the previous
one, not worse, because otherwise it would be a downgrade,
not an upgrade.
The new Skype might be
acceptable and enough accessible to use it, but from what
I see, it is worse than Skype Classic from almost all
points of view.
And it is not the first
program made by Microsoft that follow this root.

Yes it does, it pops up right in your face all you do is hot
space, or vo space on answer. I hear for example incoming
call from student. I hit space and begin my class. To hang
up I cmd tab to skype and hit cmd shift h to hang up.
I have yet
to test this, but, I suspect it will pop up a tost
notification. in the case of Mac, IOS and Android,
they pop up a window whereby you can click the

Sounds worse and worse.
This is the big
disadvantage of Skype 8 I found until now.
What is the
procedure of answering a call if we hear that
somebody is calling?
Does a Skype window
pops-up and we need to switch to it, or we need
to press Insert+F11 and open Skype from system
And, how can we
find who is calling, before answering the call?

Is it possible in Skype
8 to answer/end a call with a hotkey when
the focus is in another application, like
in Skype Classic?

[skypeenglish] ending a call using
the call is a matter of tabbing to the
button and pressing it. ending a call you do
by pressing ctrl+e. that, is a Skype
shortcut, not, a screenreader related one,
scripted or otherwise.
