Re: Which version is which?

Don & Cher
 

If you read through the messages below, you will see that there is some confusion about the versions. I’m still not sure if there are 2 or 3 different ones- and if you are correct, it’s a toss-up as to which one I have ;)

Skype 8 is Skype electron!

Skype UWP and Skype electron are different programs, therefore the scripts are different!

Mine says “Skype 8 settings are loaded. The application being loaded is Skype.exe.” So, I guess I’m not using Electron. So, is Skype 8 and Skype WUP the same thing? Thanks for your helpful response.

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. .

So how do you tell if you have 8 or WUP? Does 8 use the built-in JAWs scripts? Thanks much.

They are functionally the same, but the scripts are different. For Skype UWP, you'll need JAWS scripts from http://www.dlee.org/skype/uwp/. Sorry, I don't know of an NVDA add-on for Skype UWP at this time.

Re: recording calls in skype latest version

Mike DeZinno
 

Hello All,
Just offering a possible reason for the mp4 recording format.
There is a feature of Skype that us being blind might not think much about and that's the Skype video calls that one can also make.
Maybe the recording app takes that into consideration also.
Like I say, just throwing that out there as a possible explanation.

Mike, in SC

It looks like MP3 Skype Recorder works with Skype 8.x, so I think I'll test when the occasion arrives.

was saved on the cloud or on my pc, but I think it was saved in a video

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.

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!
