Oh well here was me blaming my computer for that constant typing noise.
Thanks Doug.

Subject: [skypeenglish] JAWS Skype script revision 220 released, to fix
in Skype 8.82

As I mentioned in another thread on this list, Skype version 8.82 came out
Friday or so and broke a few
things in my scripts. Notable among these was the typing indicator sound,
which began playing constantly in
all chat windows. I released a temporary fix yesterday (Saturday) but now
have a full release for everyone.

Go to to read the release notes. The
download link, as usual, is on the same
page. Note that this update should only be used if you are running Skype
8.82 or later. Running this updated
script revision with an older Skype version is likely to cause a few
things not
to work as expected.

One extra bit of good news: A few of you a while back reported that Alt+1
did not work to move to the
Conversations list when a group chat was in focus. This is because Alt+1
is a
native Skype keystroke and it
did not work in that particular circumstance. In this revision 220 of the
I finally scripted around
this so it does work in that case.

Happy Skyping.
