Re: Which version is which?

They are functionally the same, but the scripts are different. For Skype UWP, you'll need JAWS scripts from Sorry, I don't know of an NVDA add-on for Skype UWP at this time.

Mine says “Skype 8 settings are loaded. The application being loaded is Skype.exe.” So, I guess I’m not using Electron. So, is Skype 8 and Skype WUP the same thing? Thanks for your helpful response.

With JAWS, if you press JAWS Key plus Q and here a message about Chrome settings being loaded, you are using the Skype Electron application. Go directly to and pick up the scripts for this version of Skype. While  Doug has scripts for this one and the Universal Windows platform version, the Electron version's script support seems to work better.

I have 8.33 but no idea if it is ‘Electron’ WUP, or whatever the difference is supposed to be. The FS memo advising JFW users said to turn the virtual cursor off. Inamuddin says to definitely turn virtual cursor on- and he seems to be talking about the Electron version.


Can someone clarify and explain how to find out the source of my version? I was running 7.41 and used the ‘update button’ when the program launched. Thanks for helping untangle the many versions. .
