Ah, "rumor" is what I called it because I only heard one report and not from a Skype author; no disrespect meant.

In any case, see my next announcement; there is now a solution in place for JAWS users...

Frequently discussed in various places nowadays, and it's a change in
Skype 8.63 and is not due to Windows 10 2004. The workarounds are to
tap Alt twice, tap Alt and then Esc, or use Windows+DownArrow followed

Windows+UpArrow whenever this happens. Microsoft Teams suffered a
similar misfortune within the last few months. That one was fixed
within Teams itself, and I expect the same will happen to Skype;
however, rumor has it that

this issue is not fixed in the beta of Skype 8.64. Because of this, I
recently urged participants of this group to send feedback to Microsoft
about it, via the "Report a Problem" option within the Skype app's Help
