Great! Let's hope MS will keep Skype Classic at least until it will appear Windows 11.

new version of Skype really sucks, and is hard to use with screenreaders regardless if you have any type of impairment

This is really good news.

It sounds like they’ve gotten some seriously negative feedback on the new version.

I’ve even heard from people with sight that don’t like it.

Long Live Skype Classic.

Quick question.� If they have brought it back, does this mean that they
are going to support it or just pull a fast one later on?

Truth is, when I updated my website to account for Skype 8 now working on Windows 10, I missed the link he found on my main page. This is now fixed. And Skype 8.25 does work on Windows 10. I'm using it that way now myself.

working with two versions of Skype (Skype8.25 and/or SkypeUp) on my computer
so, if possible, I would like to have the latest or current scripts for
Skype8.25 to use with the version of Skype currently on my machine.

Skype8.25 appears to be working properly with the current scripts I have in
JAWS, but I am not sure this is all I need. I would like to have some
clarification on this topic from the list if possible.
