Actualy skype 8 for windows is equally as good I learned it in about maybe 5 minutes of just tinkering around. I use it every day on my youtube streams. If you don’t believe me go to my youtube page. I can get around it farily quickly with nvda.

It would be great for example if it will have an API that can be used for sending chat messages from programs.
 
I see you compare Skype 8 with the version for Mac, but most Skype users use it under Windows and they will probably never intend to use Mac, so for them is not helpful at all if Skype 8 is similar with the one for Mac, or if the Mac style of using the computer is more friendly with Skype 8, or anything Mac related.
 
The truth is that Skype 8 is much worse accessible than Skype 7 when it is used under Windows with JAWS, and I guess that this is the most used combination.
 
I don't know how easy is to use it with Windows 10 yet, but from what I read from other blind Windows 10 users, Windows 10 is not stable yet, and some updates can damage some things until the next update, so this is also not very useful.

Issue with making a call on the latest version of Skype using Mac OS high Sierra

Joseph Hudson <jhud7789@...>
 

Hi Mac users, I've taken the plans, and reinstalled the latest version of Skype on my MacBook Pro. I want to go call one of my friends on Skype, and every time I hit the audio call or video call button, it takes me right back into the chat window. What is going on. I even tried to call Skype test call service and it doesn't even work. If anybody wants to try it with me. Skype is the following.

Hi

Not sure if you are fully aware of the thread but skype announced they were ending skype classic on September 1. However, they have now back-tracked and are allowing skype classic to remain in use for an unspecified period.

If you wish to download the scripts for skype 8 for practical purposes you can do so from:

Dlee.org/skype/electron

I'd have to agree. I've found skype to be just as accessible and just as usable.

the interface took some getting used to, but, once I got the hang of it, I found i liked it.

Well, it was a joke. :-)
 
Actually Windows 10 is not a version number, but just a title.
 
Windows Vista is Windows version 6.0, Windows 7 is Windows version 6.1, Windows 8 is Windows version 6.2, Windows 8.1 is Windows version 6.3, and Windows 10 is just Windows 6.4, nothing more than that. It is done based on Windows Vista with lots of improvements.
 
I doubt that Windows will ever remain at version 6.x and won't pass to version 7.
