Re: Are Doug's Scripts Really Active?

OK, I figured out why JAWS says "Scripts 6.22," etc. I was in JAWS 17 at the time. So we'll forget all that, except for one question: How to remove those scripts?


Are Doug's Scripts Really Active?

Steve Matzura <number6@...>
 

I just installed Doug Lee's JAWS scripts for Skype version 8.25. I'm not sure they're active. When I press JAWS Key plus Q, sometimes JAWS tells me "Chrome settings are loaded," and sometimes "Scripts for Skype 6.22 are loaded." What the ????

Re: switched back to the windows 10 skype app

David Moore
 

I agree with you!

I like the simple interface of the Windows 10 Skype app much simpler to use, just need to do a little tabbing, but I like it better than Skype 8 as well. It works really well with NVDA as well as JAWS.

Hi. prefer the windows 10 skype app, and found the windows skype 8 a bit clumsy interface. And also the scriptsfor the windows 10 app, did not load, unless default scripts. So went back to this version. Got it from the Microsoft store. Thanks.

Thank you. It might take a few more hotkeys than a simple Alt+Tab, but it doesn't look to be very complicated.

I made a test and configured Skype Classic to use a single window, and
then I start tabbing around in that window, with the hope that I will find
a way of changing the current chat. But I found only the following
objects:
- input text field
- send image button
- send file button
- send video message button
- send contacts button
- insert emoticon or emogi button
- select to change status drop down button
- [my user name] button
- search text field
- see updates from your contacts in Skype home button
- call mobiles and landlines from the dial pad
- create a new conversation that anyone can join
- contacts tab (the other tabs are:recent, all)
- show unread conversations button
- recent messages (here appear: today, the list of recent chats,
yesterday...)
- advertising frame
- [remote user] (I don't know what is this for)
- Add [remote user] to favourites button
- video call button
- call button
- add people button
- list of chat messages

I've seen that I can change the current remote user from "recent messages"
above, after tabbing for 15 times, which is not really nice.
Plus that I need to select the user with up and down arrows, and when
doing this, the focus can also move to other things like "today", or
"yesterday".

Is there an easier method of selecting the remote user when a single
window is used?
Or maybe in Skype 8 is easier than in Skype Classic?

Clarification: All Skype versions allow multiple simultaneous chats,
but only Skype Classic allows chats to appear in separate windows. In
Skype classic's default view and in all other Skype clients for
Windows, you switch
among chats by choosing different conversations in the conversation
list. I was doing that in Skype Classic for years already and have not
used separate windows in a very long time, so admittedly I'm quite
used to this.

It works and works well. You only chat with one person at once

Re: skype 8.25

Doug Lee
 

Skype 8 loads the Chrome scripts because it is an Electron app, which is an app hosted in a Chrome control; and Freedom Scientific provided generic Electron support by arranging for that script loading.

Ins+H reports Chrome help information because I did not override this in my Skype 8 scripts.

I have not written anything I would call a Skype 8 tutorial, though there is a script user's guide at http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/ under the "Latest Users Guide" link. That document also includes a link to a Microsoft
page that lists shortcut keystrokes for Skype 8 on Windows and, in other tabs, for other operating systems.

Hi!
In answer to Gary’s question, hitting the Update Now button when I opened Skype 7 yesterday immediately sedt the installation of Skype 8 going, so I now have Skype 8 on my Windows 7 computer.
Skype 8 is definitely very different to Skype 7, but I find it accessible, even without the NVDA add-on. I don’t use JAWS, so I don’t know how accessible Skype 8 is without JAWS scripts.
Bye for now, and happy skyping!

OK, the edit field might be easy to find using web nav keys as you said. But how do you find the list of chats in order to be able to switch to another chat?
This might be different on Skype 8 than in Skype Classic, and I hope that is easier, because in Skype Classic I need to press the tab key for 15 times.

I can actually see the anem of the person I’m chatting wiht once I hit enter, I see them outside the window then I hit enter and Im in the chat. After that I use my web nav keys such as f for edit field and stuff to find the edit field if I want to.

OK, if the conversation list is easy to access, it can be acceptable, although it is harder to not see the name of the person in the title of the window.

Can you please tell me how you access the conversation list?

I made a test and configured Skype Classic to use a single window, and then I start tabbing around in that window, with the hope that I will find a way of changing the current chat. But I found only the following objects:
- input text field
- send image button
- send file button
- send video message button
- send contacts button
- insert emoticon or emogi button
- select to change status drop down button
- [my user name] button
- search text field
- see updates from your contacts in Skype home button
- call mobiles and landlines from the dial pad
- create a new conversation that anyone can join
- contacts tab (the other tabs are:recent, all)
- show unread conversations button
- recent messages (here appear: today, the list of recent chats, yesterday...)
- advertising frame
- [remote user] (I don't know what is this for)
- Add [remote user] to favourites button
- video call button
- call button
- add people button
- list of chat messages

I've seen that I can change the current remote user from "recent messages" above, after tabbing for 15 times, which is not really nice.
Plus that I need to select the user with up and down arrows, and when doing this, the focus can also move to other things like "today", or "yesterday".

Is there an easier method of selecting the remote user when a single window is used?
Or maybe in Skype 8 is easier than in Skype Classic?

Clarification: All Skype versions allow multiple simultaneous chats, but only Skype Classic allows chats to appear in separate windows. In Skype classic's default view and in all other Skype clients for Windows, you switch
among chats by choosing different conversations in the conversation list. I was doing that in Skype Classic for years already and have not used separate windows in a very long time, so admittedly I'm quite used to this.

It works and works well. You only chat with one person at once
anyway, and you do't want too many resources to be taken up, so take
it, or uninstall skype and never use it.

I use skype 8 every day for my jobs and don't mind that it is only 1
chat, it always has ben one chat and always will be one chat.

We might accept this limitation and not start chatting with more than
one person concomitently, but other people might start chatting us.
What can we do in that case? Can we distinguish somehow the source of
chat messages? Can we decide to whom we want to type to if this thing
happends?

The very bad policy of forcing us to use another worse application
doesn't make me have the courage of trying Skype 8, see if I like it,
and if not, return to Skype 7 at least for the next one month and a
half, because I'm afraid that this might be impossible and I might need
to start using the worse solution right now.

The matter of fact is that there is no possibility of more than one

Also is there a tutorial how to use the new skype, for contacts, adding contacts, finding contacts, and then doing chats. Thanks.preview

I have wanted to upgrade.  Every day for the past few months, every time I bring up skype, I get the upgrade prompt.  Now that I actually want it, it isn’t coming up, so I guess I’ll have to look for the update in skype 7 and do it myself.  Funny how when you don’t want something to appear, it’s there like clockwork, but when you do, it doesn’t appear for days.

Hi!

In answer to Gary’s question, hitting the Update Now button when I opened Skype 7 yesterday immediately sedt the installation of Skype 8 going, so I now have Skype 8 on my Windows 7 computer.

Skype 8 is definitely very different to Skype 7, but I find it accessible, even without the NVDA add-on. I don’t use JAWS, so I don’t know how accessible Skype 8 is without JAWS scripts.

Bye for now, and happy skyping!

I think it works with Windows 10 now, they apparently changed their idea since in the past it was only supposed to work with Windows 7 and 8.
For NVDA, Doug Lee also created an addon which can be downloaded here: http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/skype.nvda-addon

does skype 8 work with windows 10 and does it work with NVDA i've tryed the skype from the windows  microsoft store, and i dont mind the interface, i just dont like the way it runs, like for egzample. if i go to log out. of it. i cuold go to the bathroom, and come back, and it will still say its logging me out. and i dont like that when your in a call. on the windows ten metro skype app. if you have to answer to a chat, well in a call you have to do all this picking and playing, to try to get the chat fo focus with NVDA anyways, and there's just parts of teh windows 10 metro app that is laggy.
