Script Installation Instructions

To install these scripts on a new system:

  1. Load JAWS if this has not already been done. This will require administrative privileges on the computer.
  2. Run JAWS as the user for whom the scripts are to be installed. This and the following steps must be performed for each user of the computer who will be using JAWS with these scripts.
  3. Download and run, or run directly, the installer for these scripts; and follow the on-screen directions. Be sure to install the scripts in the currently running JAWS version if a JAWS version list is presented.
  4. To verify successful installation, type Ins+Q while Skype 8 is in focus. Part of the JAWS spoken response should be a revision number. If you do not hear a revision number, the scripts are not correctly loaded.

Hi Sarah,

 

I can’t download the latest scripts from Doug’s web site for Skype 8.38.

 

Doesn’t give me the option to download the file.

 

Kind regards

What errors do you get if any? What happens when you unzip the file(s)

Take care

Not sure if this was already answered...

Skype 8.38, the current Skype 8 version, is usable with JAWS and NVDA. I
also have scripts for JAWS for it at https://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/
and I just now released an update to those to help with a couple problems
with latest JAWS and Skype updates.
