Just go to ninite.com and grab it there or go to your Skype help menu and check for updates there.

Subject: Re: [skypeenglish] upgrading from skype 7
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!
