Each day some bad news about Skype 8! (smile)

I thought the worst thing is that it can't accept a general hotkey to answer or that it doesn't allow split chat windows, but now I find that it doesn't even work with my JAWS 16.

I start to understand the people that prefer Macs.

The oldest JAWS version supported by the Skype 8 scripts is JAWS 17, latest available revision. This is because the scripts use the "domain scripting" feature of JAWS that was introduced in JAWS 17. Prior to that, scripting a
website, or in this case an Electron app that acts like one, required modifying browser-specific scripts. Besides that, Electron is based on Chrome, and I doubt JAWS 15 supports those controls very well.
