Re: Doug's NVDA addon for Skype 8

Doug Lee

My add-on is for Skype 8 and is at and not on the page where the NVDA Add-on Manager looks for add-ons. Skype 8 is an Electron app.

My add-on, as someone pointed out earlier in this thread, just cleans up some speech output but does not include a lot of features.

Skype 7, also called Classic, is supported in NVDA by an app module that is distributed as part of NVDA itself.

I hope that clears up any remaining confusion.

Hello Ann,

not so much really as far as I can see in the description, it just

avoids some extra double-speaking and some extra information but not a

huge ammount of things imo.

Anyway, in order to figure out if it's on, you can press insert+n with

NVDA running, then go to tools submenu, and choose Manage add-ons. In

the add-ons list, you'll see Skype; make sure it's on, not off.
