Re: skype 8.55

I forgot to mention another possible cause: When you first install a set of scripts in recent JAWS versions, you may have to restart JAWS before it will recognize changes to ConfigNames.ini, the file that governs which script
files load for an application or website. That could of course explain the sudden sort-out of issues you then experienced.

hi doug

I am running version 137 but everything seems to have corrected itself
so far this morning.

I have mixed reports on how long it takes for Skype 8, various versions, to

my experience is more like five now. I mention that in case this is
related to some of the issues you are having.

From your description, I can't tell if you're having Skype problems or
script problems. First thing to do would be to type Insert+q from within
Skype with the scripts running, to see what revision number you get. If you
get a revision number, the scripts are not loading.

morning doug and all

I've installed the latest script update and, sadly, not much in skype
seems to be working.

alt 1 doesn't take me anywhere.
when I press alt and any numeric jaws just announces the keys i'm
pressing and nothing happens.
i'm unable to come out of an open chat without closing skype completely.
jaws stops speaking after about two tabs.

I've tried screen refresh and quitting and reopening jaws but no change.

i'm running 8.55, script version 137, jaws 2020 and the latest win10 build.
