Respected friend, it seams that you have pre-August update of JAWS 2019.
If so, then you will have to install Script load manager (slman)
For that, please visit:
Download Script load manager from that page and install it!

If you are running the August JAWS 2019 update, you will only need the
scripts for Skype 8.51 support. If you are running any other JAWS version
supported, 17.0 through pre-August JAWS 2019 versions, read on.

For various reasons, I have split out the system for loading Skype 8
in older JAWS versions into a new and separate set of scripts, which I am
calling Script Load Manager, or SLMan. These are at

If you want further information on this system and why I created it,
to my audio explanation, which is about five minutes long, at

The basic process to run, for anyone upgrading Skype scripts, is this:

1. Install the updated Skype scripts, which will first uninstall your
current Skype scripts as usual.

2. Install the Script Load Manager.

That combination should make the Skype scripts load properly into any
version 17.0 through current 2019. This finally even includes making
JAWSKey+v load the Quick Settings for Skype rather than loading the Quick
for Chrome.


The Script Load Manager is a pretty new idea, though I built it on ideas
had already been using for Skype and other apps. As was already true for
Skype 8 scripts, there remains the possibility that the Script Load
will cause side effects in other environments. In particular, any website
web application that uses a URL like file:///Index.html or about:blank
the focused page may cause odd behavior, especially in a non-Chrome
browser. I would appreciate notification of any such occasions found by
users out there, as I don't know a quick way to test all cases here.
