recording calls in skype latest version

John Sanders
 

Hi,

I have a question: I'm wanting to record calls in skype.

How should I go about doing that?

I hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

John Sanders

Re: Which version is which?

Steve Matzura <number6@...>
 

With JAWS, if you press JAWS Key plus Q and here a message about Chrome settings being loaded, you are using the Skype Electron application. Go directly to http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/ and pick up the scripts for this version of Skype. While Doug has scripts for this one and the Universal Windows platform version, the Electron version's script support seems to work better.

Can someone clarify and explain how to find out the source of my version? I was running 7.41 and used the ‘update button’ when the program launched. Thanks for helping untangle the many versions. .

Hi,

 

Jaws+CTRL+V should give you the version number.  HTH.

Under control center/programs and features the old Skype 7.41 is listed- but not the new. Under ‘all apps’ there is a Skype listed with no version but with the word new after the listing. Insert Q says I’m running scripts for Skype 8. When I tried to install the version 8.31 I had downloaded, windows message said I should get the one from the Microsoft store. The store seemed totally inaccessible, so launched Skype 7 and used the built in update feature.

 

Without a help menu, how can I verify the version? Can I delete 7.41? Why is one version in control center and another in ‘all apps’? Thanks.

Re: Just installed 8.32- got questions!

I was afraid that the new version shared files with Skype 7 and that uninstalling it would cause problems. Thanks for that version identification keystroke- I was leaving out the control key. I’m actually running 8.33.

Skype version 7 will soon cease to function. Uninstall it and get used to using Skype 8.

 

There are two versions of Skype 8--one from the Microsoft Store, one from skype.com. To find out which you have, run it, and if you're using JAWS as your screen reader, press JAWS Key plus Control plus V to hear the version number spoken.

How to select and locate contacts in Skype 8.32

Don & Cher
 

I select the contacts tab and activate the ‘all’ button- but could not see contacts today though I did last night. What’s the trick?

 

I searched for one contact I messaged last night and which is listed as both active and a favorite- but can’t see it anywhere on screen- unless I activate the JAWS touch cursor. How do I navigate to a specific contact again? How do I select it so I can call or message it? Is there a key command or script which makes this work better? Thanks!

Re: a question about multiple users

ken lawrence
 

It sounded like he was asked for a verification code on log in.  he says now that it has been fixed. I don’t think it was in the chat window because he’d have likely ignored it.  I know I didn’t have any trouble this morning on my show.  I had gotten a capcha on facebook once when I tried to message someone but the only codes I can think of was the one you are asked for when you verify a phone number.  I did it on my account and was able to have skype call me and give it verbally. But don’t think it was in the chat window while he was online. Sounded like he was asked for a verify on log in.

When you say "asked for a code," what exactly do you mean is happening?

 

Is a dialog popping up asking for something? If so, it would help to let us know what the dialog text says.

 

Is a chat message arriving in the active window asking for a code to be sent as a reply? If so, I recommend caution, as this could well just be a spam / phishing attempt by a Skyper out there, and not anything from Skype

itself.

Re: Chat messages are not read automaticaly with Jaws 18 on Windows 7

Alkor
 

I know that among the blind is many users of Windows 7 with Jaws 18.0 and they no plans to upgrade to Windows 10. For example, those whose computers
are too old for Win 10.
These people are now using Skype 7, but will soon be left without a convenient tool for communication. Therefore, it would be very nice to fix read
messages from Skype on Windows 7.
I am willing to help in this, acting as a tester.
By the way, in Skype 8.25 messages were read normally.
I cann ot say exactly when its broke , because upgraded my desktop computer to Windows 10.
But on my laptop still installed Windows 7 and i don't want change it to windows 10.
Kind regards,
Alkor.

Re: Chat messages are not read automaticaly with Jaws 18 on Windows 7

Doug Lee
 

If you refer to messages arriving in the currently displayed conversation, I'm not sure what's going on there. The rest of this message applies to notifications produced by Skype when a message arrives in a conversation that is
not currently in focus on screen.

Under Windows 10, a lot of notifications like that go through a new Windows standard system for handling notifications; and JAWS speaks those notifications automatically. In Windows 7, many apps have their own methods of
handling notifications; and screen readers would have to include specific code to handle each app's notifications separately. In JAWS, this means custom scripts run from default.jss. My Skype 8 scripts do not include support
for Skype's notifications under Windows 7. I don't currently have a good way to test that environment, and I don't know how many blind people use Skype under Windows 7 or for how long they will. I don't have plans to address
this, but if I did it would not be by adding to the Skype 8 scripts; it would be by creating a separate set of scripts for Skype 8 and Windows 7 users, so those scripts could be left out on Windows 10 where they are not needed.

Re: Two announcements: https works on my website, and hotkey change in Skype 8

Thanks Doug for the information, I just tested the hotkeys in italian Skype 8.32 and effectively the change is in effect here as well, so I reported on my italian Skype list.
Bye!

Two announcements: https works on my website, and hotkey change in Skype 8

Doug Lee
 

Someone on this list recently had trouble finding scripts/add-ons on my website because of using https instead of http. https has become quite common nowadays, and sometimes preferred, for security reasons.

So I finally took the opportunity to get a certificate set up for my website. From now on, https://www.dlee.org should work as well as http://www.dlee.org. This applies to all URLs for scripts and projects I host.

Also while I'm making announcements: I observed recently that the Ctrl+F shortcut in Skype 8 for searching for contacts now searches conversations for text. The new keystroke for searching for contacts is Ctrl+Shift+S,
according to my testing. I don't know if or where this may be officially documented at this time.

By the way, the remotelogout is getting an "invalid command" message.
Are we sure this still works? I saw myself signed into two places, one

even
see the /remotelogout command in the list of command when I type the
