Cannot Read Mood Text

Brian Hartgen <brianhartgen@...>
 

Hi

 

I wonder if anyone please has a solution to this one? I am using Doug’s scripts at the moment for the Skype App for Windows10 and everything is working as it should.

 

However, I cannot read the mood text. If I press Control+I, and Tab to the mood text, JAWS does not read it. Last week, it was reading it. Today it isn’t. If I try to enter text into the edit field, it is not announced if I review it. Has anyone else seen this please?

 

Thanks.

Re: setting up alerts

Mike DeZinno
 

Regarding sent alerts:
there are times that for some unknown reason a message I just typed doesn't get sent with hitting the enter key, so I do the following little work around;

I just use the alt end key combo to read the last message in the chain,
If I hear my message I know it was sent and I'm ok.

if it's not the one I just sent I know something fried so I leave that chat and then go back in and if jaws says type a message I do it all over again,
that usually works for me.

I'm using  Jaws 18, with Windows 7, and Skype 7 versions.
Hope this will help.

Enjoy the beginning of spring,
Mike in SC

jaws scripts for skype

John Sanders
 

Hi my name is John Sanders.

I have a question: I am running the latest version of skype.

I'm using windows 7 64 bit with jaws 15.

Whenever I go in to the settings dialog in skype, jaws is not reading me
in some sections of the dialog box what its supposed to be.

How should I go about fixing this?

I hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

John Sanders


Re: Skype! What version is the right version and What is going on with all of these skypess

Stephen Troy
 

Hi james

Microsoft are in the process of phasing out skype 7 but there's no dateline
for this to be completed as yet.

If you have windows 7 or 8 you can use skype electron, as doug calls it, and
download the scripts from dlee.org/skype/electron.

If you have windows ten, and are not able to use skype 7, you should be
using UWP, and again there are scripts on doug's site for this.

Below is something doug wrote earlier this week in an email and it might be
useful to you.

I think Skype 8 and Skype UWP both have pros and cons. I actually asked
Microsoft's @SkypeSupport on Twitter yesterday (Tuesday) for information on
the expect length of life of Skype 8, since it is currently intended only
for older versions of Windows. I await an answer.

I find Skype 8 more responsive than Skype UWP at this time, but I also find
Skype UWP to have more features than Skype 8. This includes letting us know
which contacts are active versus inactive, though not with the notifications
you requested earlier. (Skype 8.16 does include "Online" by some of my
contacts in the Conversations list, but I don't yet know the exact
significance of this since it is not shown for all contacts.)

Older versions of Skype UWP often froze on me for up to a minute. Older
versions of Skype 8 outright crashed about as often as that. I have not seen
either of these problems in updated versions.

Re: skype 8 and skype windows 10 which is the better for accessibility

Lino Morales
 

Well I don’t think it has anything to do with Doug’s scripts mike. If a user hasn’t shared contact INFO with you well it is what it is. And like Doug also pointed out since push notifications got introduced a few years back its hard to tell with Skype 7.x and older who’s really online or off etc.

Good evening all,
regarding notifications of on-line or not statuses being spoken:
First may I say I am not the Skype Guru that many who are on this list are but here is what I have noticed with what I'm getting back from Skype.

I'm using Jaws 18, with Windows 7, and Skype 7.xxx version, with Doug's B scripts.

I am hearing the following:
on-line
not on-line
Away
and this person hasn't shared details with you
and I also hear whether or not there are new messages for me from any given person
I don't know if this is typical for our average user but this is what I hear and so I just assumed this was just the proper function of Skype, Jaws, and Dougs good scripting.

There are so many little tweeky settings between Jaws, and Skype that I'm amazed that any of it works for any of us, with any consistency! LOL

Skype 7 showed us presence indicators but they lost reliability as phones started showing up and setting up push notifications. I think that may be why presence indication has been changing lately.

Skype 7 sometimes says "Online" beside a contact name, as I said before; but not always, and I've never seen "Offline" or another status there yet.

Skype UWP uses the term "Active" to denote someone that is online, as far as I can tell.

So I think we will get presence indicators back, in some form. I just don't know exactly how they will work.

Push notifications. Was. Re: [skypeenglish] skype 8 and skype windows 10 which is the better for accessibility

Michele Barbi
 

Doug Lee wrote amongst other things:
"To Michael, on the "Away" status being caused by people forgetting to log out of Skype:

You would not only have to log out but also disable push notifications, on iOS at least. Most of us don't do that I'm sure. :)"
*************
Hey Doug, I actually knew that in the past but I didn't expect I had to check it out once again after plenty of time. I think you helped me a lot though, because I discovered to be away recently instead of offline. So I opened Skype on my iPhone, I went to the notifications settings inside the app, and figured out that yeah push notifications where active. I tried to disable them, and I am looking for some cavias to verify this one.

Yes, JAWS 2018 would work with the Skype that you are using right now.

Hello Josephine,

I am approved to up grate to Jaws 2018 but I wasn't sure if they were finished making all their typical new release fixes that they tend to seem to do.
Do you think even though I'm still only using Windows 7 I would see any improved functionality in Skype if I upgrade to Jaws 2018?
I tend to move slowly on changes, giving others time to work out most of the little glitchy things.

   I didn't know that. So did I understand correctly that if I am set to
   invisible and somebody will call me, that person will hear Skype
   ringing no matter if my computer is shut down, or the computer is on
   and Skype is logged in?

Re: skype 8 and skype windows 10 which is the better for accessibility

Mike DeZinno
 

Hello Josephine,
thank you for the suggestion,
I am approved to up grate to Jaws 2018 but I wasn't sure if they were finished making all their typical new release fixes that they tend to seem to do.
Do you think even though I'm still only using Windows 7 I would see any improved functionality in Skype if I upgrade to Jaws 2018?
I tend to move slowly on changes, giving others time to work out most of the little glitchy things.

Thanks for the help,
Mike in SC

Did you try JAWS 2018 if you do have another SMA for JAWS. If not, try NVDA

Good evening all,
regarding notifications of on-line or not statuses being spoken:
First may I say I am not the Skype Guru that many who are on this list are but here is what I have noticed with what I'm getting back from Skype.

I'm using Jaws 18, with Windows 7, and Skype 7.xxx version, with Doug's B scripts.

I am hearing the following:
on-line
not on-line
Away
and this person hasn't shared details with you
and I also hear whether or not there are new messages for me from any given person
I don't know if this is typical for our average user but this is what I hear and so I just assumed this was just the proper function of Skype, Jaws, and Dougs good scripting.

There are so many little tweeky settings between Jaws, and Skype that I'm amazed that any of it works for any of us, with any consistency! LOL

I consider it useful to know if someone is online, and even how long it's been since a status was known, which has occasionally been possible for us to see in Skype. When a friend of mine is going through storms, for example,
this may help tell me if there is a power loss at that end.

Skype 7 showed us presence indicators but they lost reliability as phones started showing up and setting up push notifications. I think that may be why presence indication has been changing lately.

Skype 7 sometimes says "Online" beside a contact name, as I said before; but not always, and I've never seen "Offline" or another status there yet.

Skype UWP uses the term "Active" to denote someone that is online, as far as I can tell.

So I think we will get presence indicators back, in some form. I just don't know exactly how they will work.
