starting a skype call from a skype chat in skype 8 for mac

Sarah k Alawami
 

I cannot start a skype call in skype 8 for mac from a chat. I know there is a way, however I don’t see it if I hit enter on a chat. Is there a way to do this? I start chats with my students then place the calls from there, or did in skype 7. I’m learning as much as I can about skype 8 as it has gotten better but yeah. There are a few things that need to go away first before I deem it perfect, but any feedback I send never seems to be enacted upon. Anyway, how can I start a skype call from a chat? I have work today-and cannot really afford to be late again.

Take care all.

where's my voicemail?

ken lawrence
 

Hi skype users I am tweaking some settings on skype and have noticed that I needed to enable some hotkeys. Am now trying to double check my settings and on voicemail and forwarding when I tab over I don’t see options my account at skype dot com credits our rate other things you can do and a save. It is as if voicemail no longer exists. How do I make sure my voicemail options are set properly. Am using a skype 7 and not the new universal platform as this is apparently still not accessible. Anyone know why I’m not seeing voicemail settings?

Re: Solution for, JAWS drops in volume when Skype calls come in

Jerry Pryde
 

I noticed the volume in JAWS dropping then a skype call came in, But went back to normal once I either answered, or just left it for a second.
It stopped doing that quite some time ago.

Hi all,
I remember doing this a long long time ago. Obviously when Windows
updated, something changed.
Thanks to Bill White for the reminder.
It worked well with the two people I reached out to.
Perhaps it is a chunk of knowledge you might want to save.

See below.

Windows Automatically Reduces System Volume for Games & PC Calls

While you are using your PC to place or receive calls or while you are
playing games which use PC calls feature, Windows automatically reduces the
system volume without even asking you.

Actually its a new feature introduced in Windows 7 which can be disabled
using the following simple steps:

1. Open "Sound" applet from Control Panel.
Or right-click on Speaker icon present in system tray and select "Playback
devices" or "Recording devices" or "Sounds" option.
2. Now go to "Communications" tab and check the option "Do nothing" and
click Okay.
3. That's it. Now Windows will no longer reduce the system volume.

Lol. Yeah Woopsy doodle.

Anyway check you comunications settings under sound properties to see if that's the cause. I had a similar issue a while ago and tht's what I was told.

Take care

Just letting you know you highjacked this thread and sent your message twice, or maybe groups.io glitched on the second point but please do not highjack this thread, or anyt hread, start a new one please. The next time this happens you will be on a week ban. Thanks. This is a gental reminder to all. The reason I bring this up is I don't want to have to split the topic. That is going to be a mess so I'd rather that people just start a new thread if they have a question. I'll do it this time but not again.

Re: JAWS drops in volume when Skype calls come in

Mario <mrb620@...>
 

in the sound applet in the control panel, Windows can automatically
adjust the volume of different sounds when you are using your PC to
place or receive telephone calls in the Communications property sheet.
how about changing "When Windows detects communications activity:" to
"Do nothing radio button checked. did it help?
When Windows detects communications activity:
Do nothing radio button checked

MP3 Skype Recorder 4.43

Larry Gassman
 

Hi all,
At one time I sent in a not to the person who codes MP3 Skype Recorder.
It had to do with JAWS being heard when I pressed key strokes using MP3 Skype recorder.
I do have an external mixer. All the pots were down.
He fixed the issue for a while but it broke again and at that time he said that Microsoft had dome something which accidentally eliminated the fix.
Any ideas as to how to get this fixed permanently?
Is anyone else experiencing this with MNP3 Skype recorder when recording?

JAWS scripts for Skype 8 are at http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/ and an NVDA add-on for Skype8 is at http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/skype.nvda-addon

The old classic Skype 7 app should still be downloadable from http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full
