Re: how do you get to check what skype version you are running?

Doug Lee

In Skype 8.39 for Windows Desktop, these are my related findings:

Alt+H works, but you then have to arrow down to About and press Enter. Typing "a" does something else.

At least with my scripts running, Insert+B reads the About box nicely. There are a number of page buttons before the Skype version number though.

The JAWS Touch cursor can also move nicely enough through the information on this page, with or without my scripts. However, it seems helpful to Left arrow once before using the Right arrow to read through the information one
element at a time. Arrowing to the right immediately without moving left first seems to miss things.

If you are running my scripts, Ctrl+JAWSKey+V will also give you the Skype version number immediately.
