"just takes geting used
Yes, but this, and the fact that it doesn't have some
features that Skype 7 has, makes it worse than Skype 7. :)
Getting used to something means effort and time consumed,
and Skype 7 doesn't require this.
It is good to consume time to learn something new that
helps, but for the moment I've seen only missing features in Skype 8, not new
helpful things that we can do with it.
It would be great for example if it will have an API that
can be used for sending chat messages from programs.
I see you compare Skype 8 with the version for Mac, but
most Skype users use it under Windows and they will probably never intend to use
Mac, so for them is not helpful at all if Skype 8 is similar with the one for
Mac, or if the Mac style of using the computer is more friendly with Skype 8, or
anything Mac related.
The truth is that Skype 8 is much worse accessible than
Skype 7 when it is used under Windows with JAWS, and I guess that this is the
most used combination.
I don't know how easy is to use it with Windows 10 yet,
but from what I read from other blind Windows 10 users, Windows 10 is not stable
yet, and some updates can damage some things until the next update, so this is
also not very useful.

Not true. I use it every day for my streams and my jobs. It is 100 percent
accessible and usable and just takes geting used to, so give it a chance.

This is really good
It sounds like they’ve gotten some
seriously negative feedback on the new version.
I’ve even heard from people with sight
that don’t like it.
