Re: Answering calls- 7 vs 8 vs WUP

Stephen Troy


it is not possible in Skype 7 to answer a call without using some form
of keystroke.

if someone calls me my computer doesn't automatically pick up the
call and we start chatting.

I believe in Skype 8 control q answers and starts a call.

our screen readers do not notify us!
When you go to top of the page it will tell that the person’s name who is
recording the call tested it with JAWS 2018 latest version!

Hi Cher!
In Skype 8.25, you can have calls answered automatically as well.
You can go to the settings and have Skype 8.25 do that for you. The latest
update is now:
Skype 8 can also record calls now!

I think I was not very clear. What I mean is that in my Skype 7, calls are
answered without any keystroke at all and we just start hearing each other

Yes. Although I can't remember how to set up the key strkes. I can answer
calls fast in the nes wkype 8 for windows on a good day or if I'm paying
attention. Note the hot keys are no longer global but it still works and
works very very well.

I am still using 7 because I’m concerned about the changes in the new
versions. I love the way calls come in with 7 because I don’t have to fumble
around to find the answer command in a panic. Do 8 and WUP still have this
ability? I use the program only about once every month or so- so enjoy not
having to remember new commands. Thanks.
