Take care

Perhaps useful resource reminders:

JAWS scripts for Skype 8 are at https://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/ These work with JAWS versions 17 and later. (The JAWS 17 limit is imposed by older JAWS versions not working well in general with Electron apps like Skype 8.)

A simple NVDA add-on for Skype 8 is at https://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/skype.nvda-addon

To answer one frequently-asked question before it gets asked on this list: I did not implement Alt+numbers or Ctrl+numbers for reading chat messages in either JAWS or NVDA because of the way the chat history is organized in
Skype 8. In short, I am not convinced that there is a reliable way for scripts or add-ons to announce the "last" message, because it can at any moment happen not to be on screen due to scrolling or message arrival without
scrolling.

My preferred way to read chat messages, in both JAWS and NVDA and Skype 8, is to Shift+Tab from the chat input box to the message list and then use arrows to move among messages.

Skype 7 was a wonderful app for us. I find Skype 8 usable, slim, fast, and overall pretty efficient for my needs, though not as feature-rich as Skype 7. Our focus will now need to be on learning to use this newer Skype, and on
helping Microsoft improve it as necessary.

One final note, based on past message threads: Let us not diverge from here into a discussion of the merits of Skype 7 versus 8, the wisdom or folly of Microsoft's replacement of Skype 7, etc. That horse is so dead the the
flies buzzed off half a year ago. :-) I instead wish for everyone the best possible experience with Skype 8, and I plan to remain active as necessary in addressing any issues with it that may appear in the future.

Thanks billions, Doug.

I'll be looking into upgrading JAWS ASAP.

I tried to make a call this afternoon, and just after the call connected, Skype 7 unloaded, and the update notice came up.

A link to an updated list of hot keys for skype 8 would be appreciated, along with any tutorials if possible.

I'll be back on skype, and learning anything new; it's just a matter of time.

It is what it is. lol

Jerry.

Hi Doug,
Thanks for the rapid response.
Since I now know that I'm set up ok and following what you are recommending I will turn my attentions to the much more painful part of improving   myself! LOL

Re: Help with history dividers

Mike DeZinno
 

Hello All,
Could someone please let me know if the following configuration of my Windows 10 lap top, running Jaws 2019, is correctly set up?
It says I'm running:  Skype version  8.36.0.52
Insert q says:  Revision 73 Skype for windows desktop 8(electron)  settings are loaded
The application currently being used is Skype exe Skype.exe

I'm having a bit of trouble getting the key combos to read messages from the groups I belong to, which in Skype 7, with Doug's older scripts, on a windows7 lap top I had no trouble figuring out over the years and am trying hard to get back to a minimal level of proficiency.
 
I have gone to several documents for new up dated keystrokes but again I'm not even coming close to the level of skill I once had.

Am I doing something wrong or is it just the nature of the current beast! LOL

Any help is greatly appreciated,
Mike, in SC

If you are not hearing these messages and you know that you are crossing dividers, let me know which Skype 8 version you are running (Ctrl+Ins+V should tell you) and which JAWS version.

No worries, I'll test it with the add ons I do have if I'm ever forced to use skype under windows, let's hope that time is never. I like the interface but the mac's one is better in my humble opinion.


Blessings and happy Friday

Thanks Doug. I'm sorry, it is in fact working, but I needed to restart Jaws after installing the scripts for it to happen.

Very glad to have this feature. Thank you.

As you arrow past a divider, like "Today," JAWS should say the divider's text as you arrow down and the text with the word "leaving" before it as you arrow up. So, when you arrow down to the first message under "today," JAWS
should say "Today" in a lower voice before announcing the new message. When you arrow up away from that message, JAWS should say "Leaving today," to indicate that you are leaving that section of the message history.

History in private conversations

Michele Barbi
 

Hello guys,
first of all, merry Xmas and happy holidays to all of you!
Pardon the subject which can be a little confused, I'll explain the issue here in the message body. I'm having an issue with a friend of mine since her Skype auto-updated to version 8 electron in Windows 10. She sent to me, maybe by mistake, an invitation to make a private chat, and I accepted even if I did not get what it was; from that moment, when I chat with her I am unable to make the script for going to history work, meaning the command key followed by h.
Note that I am using scripts revision 60, does rev 73 fix the problem? Or is it still a bug in this particular kind of chat?
Bye!
Barbuz

Hello, if you go to the archives, you will be able to find the message there. You can also download the archive for off line reading and searching. I have not done this as of yet, but I might just to keep some key strokes and links in a file.
