Re: upgrading from skype 7

Nicki keck <jesusgirl71@...>

I have wanted to upgrade.  Every day for the past few months, every time I bring up skype, I get the upgrade prompt.  Now that I actually want it, it isn’t coming up, so I guess I’ll have to look for the update in skype 7 and do it myself.  Funny how when you don’t want something to appear, it’s there like clockwork, but when you do, it doesn’t appear for days.

In answer to Gary’s question, hitting the Update Now button when I opened Skype 7 yesterday immediately sedt the installation of Skype 8 going, so I now have Skype 8 on my Windows 7 computer.

Skype 8 is definitely very different to Skype 7, but I find it accessible, even without the NVDA add-on. I don’t use JAWS, so I don’t know how accessible Skype 8 is without JAWS scripts.

Bye for now, and happy skyping!

Gary asks:
"If we just accept the update when we get the notice after opening skype will it update to  the latest version of skype 8?"
Hi Gary and all,
yes I think so. I sincerely did not do it, scripts are not available in Italian yet. One friend of mine is using english scripts though, so it's possible that I'll do it soon as well.
