Re: ending a call using latest scripts

Hi Sarah,
 
This is pretty bad news, because we might be pressing space while we are typing something else, and we might answer a call even if we don't want to do this.
Even if space will be somehow blocked by default in the window that appears and we would need to use another hotkey which is not used very often, it would be a little better, but still frustrating that the focus was stolen by another application. It was even a software design recommendation to not create applications that steal the focus.
 
It would be also worse if we'll need to press Insert+F11 and start searching in the list of system tray applications or do many Alt+Tab to reach the Skype window for beeing able to answer the call, because until we would finish all these movements, the other party might stop calling.
 
The new Skype version should be an improvement, it should be better than the previous one, not worse, because otherwise it would be a downgrade, not an upgrade.
The new Skype might be acceptable and enough accessible to use it, but from what I see, it is worse than Skype Classic from almost all points of view.
And it is not the first program made by Microsoft that follow this root.

Yes it does, it pops up right in your face all you do is hot space, or vo space on answer. I hear for example incoming call from student. I hit space and begin my class. To hang up I cmd tab to skype and hit cmd shift h to hang up.

Look at this as being a work in progress for all of us. Although we may not have the answer you are looking for, I’m sure that someone on the list who is using 8.25 with the scripts can and have the answer we all are looking for.

Skype 8.25

Josephine Hirsch
 

Hi all,


Thanks to Mr. Phoenix, he showed me to how check my voicemail on the new version of Skype. I guess that at the beginning, I wasn't able to do that part. Time went on, Doug Lee made it so accessible with JAWS and NVDA, I will give him 5* rating for making Skype version 8.25 more accessible for users who are currently either using NVDA or JAWS as their main screen reader, even though, not everyone have Windows 10 as their computer's OS, and basically people still have Windows 7 as their computer's OS.

Thanks,

Josephine


Re: ending a call using latest scripts

no, that won't make a difference as the interface is exactly the same. the operating system has little to do with the interface of an app.

just updated to skype

ken lawrence
 

Hi list have been fiddling around with skype and it’s a bit different. How do I see my contacts list? Also what settings do I need to maybe tweak with version 8 can see all my past conversations but want to get to my contacts and resend requests. Is their any kind of an NVDA add on in the works?  I actually like that I can finally shut down skype without the task manager or system tray. From the looks of it this skype seems to be a bit easier to manage. It’s just the matter of learning it.  Learning the keystrokes and things like answering calls.  I like what I’ve seen so far.

but, thanks for the tip with CTRL+Q

You'll find this under the skype menu. I just hope that microsoft
realizes that they are likely to lose customers over the massive
drastic changes in skype. Sometimes I think they care more about their
pockets and getting rich, rather than making things user-friendly for
their customers.

Hello all,


I have just upgraded from the classic desktop Skype 7 to Skype 8 on my
machine running Windows 10 and the latest JAWS and Doug's latest
script, Revision 39.


In previous versions I could quit without signing out from the Skype
menu in system tray, now when I go to system tray, Skype is there but
the menu appears impossible to navigate, nothing is announced when
cursor or tab keys are pressed, however when I press insert+b, a set of
options is announced, the last of these being quit, so it seems that a
sighted person can click here to quit Skype, does anyone know if it is
possible to quit Skype with a screen reader?
