unfortunately, your unwillingness to update Skype is going to see
you without that service when it is finally completely phased out
for the older versions.
As for the younger generations, I'd like to point out that I am
43 years of age and have taken to technology as if I were born to
Granted, I didn't have an inbuilt CPU in my nappies, but it's
your own personal attitude that determines as to how well you
adapt to and adopt new technologies.

Who cares. I am not willing to update Skype, and it makes
things harder for me to use it because I can't do the things
like before, and no one can hear me on their end whenever I make
a phone call, and plus, I am not like the young generations to
where they have everything on their phone, even though, I treid
to use the new version of Skype..

that, sadly, has been since removed when Skype 8 was
released, so that is no longer an option.

re sending files a possible work around,
I have found that sending files in Skype from within the Skype
menus has always been kinda hit or miss for me so for the last
3 years or so I browse to the file on my laptop I wish to send
and right click on it,
one of the options that comes up is send to Skype.
hit enter on that and you go directly to Skype and into your
master contact list where you just find the person or persons
you wish to send the file to and click on their Skype handle.
I know this is probably not as sophisticated as some other
users skills might be but this has been working for me.
I hope this helps someone,
Mike, in SC

I can confirm that since
skype 8's initial release, the file send dialog is indeed
at least in windows anyway. something I intend to lodge
feedback about. Furthermore, I am certain that MS will at
the very least take it under advisement and hopefully will
see that this is rectified in later versions of Skype.

I actuallyÂ don't have
that issue, and I'm using nvda build 18 latest snap. And
I'm using skype 8 I can read the chats fine by tabbing to
the list and just going to the bottom. It stays there.
As for sendingÂ files I have not had to do that yet, Ill
see bout that as normally I jut send dropbox links

skype 8 is not all
that bad.Â how ever, a few things i dont like with it,
sending files is broken, when you get in to the dialog
box. it willÂ not read, your folders so you can go
sollect the file you want to send, when using NVDA then
with the chat section, if your viewingÂ Â Â the history
of a sertin chat, its a pain, cause it will loose focus
of the last chat that was recieved, and it will rap you
clear to the beginning of theÂ convorsation, or the
middle of the convorsation, so you have to hit your down
arrow. over and over again, to get to the end of the
convorsation, you can not hit control page up. or page
down, nore home or end eather, to take you to the
beginning or end of teh chat, i tryed that, so i found
that skype for windows 10 fromÂ the microsoft store
works a bit better for me anyways, because at least with
taht, when viewing convorsations in sertin chats, it at
least raps you to the end, of the chat, it will focus
you with what wasÂ last said.
