again, this is where your quick nav keys for web interaction come
in to play. because you simply press e to enter your edit field,
and you're there. then tap your space bar to go in to forms or
brows mode, depending on your screenreader, then you can type
It really is not rocket science, and I'm really getting tired of
you knit picking every single thing you can and finding every
single reason you can to decry not only skype, but the tireless
work both developers and end-users have done to get it where it is
today. I'm sorry, but either put up, or shut up.

Yes, that's true. In some cases
it might be faster to navigate in the web interface, but the
problem I see is that the web interface is not standard, and
anytime can appear something new in that interface,
advertising, a link there, a button elsewhere, so we can't
memorize that we need to press tab twice and then enter and
then do this fast without waiting for screen reader to speak.
I prefer the interfaces that never change depending on
context. For sighted it is not a problem because they can see
the entire window, they can see the context very fast.

I don't mind the web inerface, in fact, I find myself
navigating a lot faster in the web interface than the
older interface but thats just me.

good, but these are small improvements while bigger
issues will never be solved.
The biggest issue:
Skype 8 uses a web interface.
This issue might be
worked around if the scripts will turn the virtual
buffer off automaticly and it will use only the PC
cursor, and of course, if this way Skype will be
fully accessible this way.
The best news is that
for the moment Skype 7 still works. Too bad that it
will probably stop working soon.
