Sarah, I though they wanted to know the command for Windows which is ctrl+shift+p as someone else pointed out already. Cmd+shift+r is for Mac users.

there isn't a command to answer calls, other than to tab to the button and press on it.

do not quote me on this, but I think ending a call is ctrl+e

I'll try ctrl+shift+p the next time I sign in on Skype and a call arrives, I only used it for starting a call. Anyway I can confirm ctrl+e for ending a call, I tested it sometimes.

Re: help with the new 8.3 version of skype.

Doug Lee
 

My experience says Ctrl+Shift+P never answered a call in Skype 8, but that if you happened to be displaying the same contact that called you and you typed Ctrl+Shift+P, Skype tried to initiate a call to that person and simply
connected to the incoming call as a result. This could easily give the illusion that Ctrl+Shift+P answers calls if you are testing the feature and thus are likely to be showing that exact contact when a call arrives.

joseph, I think you may be waiting a long-time for a new version of gw
connect. if memory serves, the company providing that particular
software were bought by AI Squared who were subsequently taken over by
freedom scientific who are in bed with microsoft, so there's not
likely to be an alternative to Skype produced, or marketed, any time
soon.

if Skype 8 is so difficult, and I can't comment because I've not
tried 8 yet, perhaps people should think about switching to using the
phone app with an external keyboard if they don't fancy the double
tapping all the time required to type messages or find dictation a
pain.

receiving and making calls are certainly straightforward.

Re: help with the new 8.3 version of skype.

Doug Lee
 

The plan for taking an incoming call in Skype 8 is this:

1. Make a shortcut key that immediately puts focus on the Skype 8 window. Do this by assigning a shortcut key, such as Ctrl+Shift+Alt+K, to the Skype 8 Desktop shortcut.

2. When a call comes in, type your shortcut, tab for caller ID, then tab to the Answer button and press Space.

This is more keystrokes than Alt+PgUp was, but it is also less prone to the, "Oh goodness, I did not mean to pick up that call!" situation. This situation would be my description of most calls I get, because of spam calls that
are made to my phone number, which I route through Skype specifically so I can handle such things intelligently.

Hi Doug,

Can't be made a script that executes these hotkeys, a script stored in default.jss?
If it would be possible, we could assign a hotkey for it, say Alt+PgUp, and one of the problems could be solved.

I hope that it is not a problem that the window uses a web widget, because that can't be solved.

Re: help with the new 8.3 version of skype.

Hi!
It's all very well to say that a keystroke such as alt+page up should be
added to the JAWS scripts of Skype 8, but that won't help users of other
screen-readers. I'm not sure that such a keystroke is necessary anyway.
Doug's way of answering Skype calls seems rather complicated to me ,
although that may make seeing who the caller is a bit easier. I am lucky
that the Skype calls I receive are from people I know, and in most cases I
have warning that I am going to receive a call, so I go into the Skype
window in Skype 8, which I tend to leave open while Skype is running anyway,
and press Tab till I find the Answer button. There's a Decline button too,
which comes before the Answer button while tabbing through the window, so if
you don't want to take the incoming call, you can use that instead.
If you don't want to keep the Skype window open like I do, you can minimise
it with alt+f4 like you did in older versions of Skype, and pressing Enter
on the Skype icon on your desktop will open the Skype window again. Since I
rarely minimize the Skype window while my Skype 8 is running, I don't know
if an incoming call will make that window appear, that's why I mentioned how
to open it while Skype is still running.
I hope this helps!
Bye for now!

Hi!
I don't think GWConnect will ever come back, partly because GWMicro was
taken over as someone else has already mentioned, partly because some
special API which allowed GWConnect to be created no longer exists. So there
are really only two choices now as far as I can tell, either Skype 8 or the
Windows 10 version.
Bye for now, and happy skyping, whatever version you use for it!

This would involve minimizing all apps for going to the desktop, or using another method that involves even more key presses, then finding the skype icon and opening Skype, then tabbing around until the answer or decline buttons get the focus, which is also complicated.
I think that if it is possible to feed a list of keys to Skype 8 automaticly in a JAWS script, then I guess it is also easy to do the same thing in an NVDA module.

Re: help with the new 8.3 version of skype.

Doug Lee
 

I do not have plans to add something like Alt+PgUp as a JAWS script or NVDA command, for several reasons. I would consider it if there were an API-based way to answer a call, because that would be more reliable than trying to
script a series of UI actions. Also, making a key to answer calls would require me to add default-level scripts to Skype 8 so the key could work outside of Skype itself.

Joseph, as much as you go on about wanting GWConnect back, it will never happen.


Quite apart from anything else, much of the API that was used to create it is now deprecated, thus, no third party application can be made from the now defunked SDK.


There is little point in wanting something that simply will never be.

My experience says Ctrl+Shift+P never answered a call in Skype 8, but
that
if you happened to be displaying the same contact that called you and you
typed Ctrl+Shift+P, Skype tried to initiate a call to that person and
simply
connected to the incoming call as a result. This could easily give the
illusion that Ctrl+Shift+P answers calls if you are testing the feature
and thus are likely to be showing that exact contact when a call arrives.

only used it for starting a call. Anyway I can confirm ctrl+e for ending
a
call, I tested it sometimes.
