Skype script revision 226 released, with notable date handling changes during chat message navigation

Doug Lee

I have released revision 226 of the JAWS Skype scripts. Release notes at and
download link available in that document as usual.

Besides making date announcement work in Skype 8.88, this revision revamps the method of handling dates during
navigation among messages:

You can read the current message's date with the key sequence [ D.

When you arrow up or down across a date boundary, a short sound will play and the date will be announced after
the message you reached. This redesign speeds navigation, avoids a stutter issue, prevents long dates from
slowing announcement of messages, avoids "Leaving ..." announcements and confusion over which date is current,
and still makes recognition of boundary crossings very efficient.
