Re: problems with version 8.59

Chela Robles

So, let me get this straight, in order for me to get Skype and say JAWS and or NVDA working again with Skype, I have to continually do this uninstall/reinstall process until it works? I have two laptops by HP that I may have to do this process on. Sounds like a hard workaround though.
I do notice that there are two flavors of the JAWS scripts on Doug's site, the one I have is for desktop labeled electron which may be 8.59 I think, and the other peeks my curiosity, think it's the UPW version. Never heard of this one. Is that for the windows 10 app from the app store?

Hi all.

The latest version of Skype installed after restarting this morning.

I'm still using revision 137 with Jaws 2020.

So far, all is well.

hi doug and all

apologies for retracing recent steps but I i'm unable to find a

response to the below issue.

i'm running skype 8.59, script version 149, latest build of jaws and

when skype is open, I get absolutely no response from anything,

including jaws, other than pressing the alt key and that only gives

me very limited access to the calls and view menus. oh, I can see quit

under the file option, so I guess i'm logged in!!

any advice is gratefully received

many thanks in advance
