funny, I tend to use Skype 8 as if it were a web page. That's the easiest way for me to get around. After all, that's all it is, a glorified web page both on Windows and Mac.

no, the original poster did not ask how to use a screen reader, but judging the way the post was written, I take it they did not know about the browse keystrokes but could be used.

The advice to use Skype 8 is reasonable because we don't really have a choice.
It is also reasonable to refer to Skype 8 as usable, which I can say having used it exclusively for close to a year by now.
But I don't use it like a website; I use it like an application. I disable the virtual cursor in JAWS, and I don't use Browse mode in NVDA, except on extremely rare occasions.
If our initial poster actually asked how to use a screen reader with a web interface, I missed it.
Addison, in case these are useful, I have Skype 8 JAWS scripts at https://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/
That page also contains a link to a Microsoft keyboard shortcut list for Skype 8. For convenience, that link is https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12025/what-are-hotkeys-and-how-do-i-use-them-in-skype

as there is no Skype 7 anymore, let me give you some advice. You Skype
8. You will love it. All you need to do is memorize and use your web
reading keystrokes that you use with your screen reader. Read your
screen readers manual on more as this is not the list to get help on
web browsing keystrokes.
