Re: Turn off typing sound in skype 8.xx

Jacob
 

I'm using the english version of JAWS 18. Don't know if it can berelated to the fact that I'm using danish Windows 10? I both try english and danish in the Skype settings. I remember back in Skype Classic that some parts of the scripts doesn't work if Skype was set to danish. But in this case with Skype 8 it doesn't matter. OK I'll try to edit the file. Thank you.

It sounds like the Danish translation of the scripts has an issue with the qs or qsm files. If you have the same experience in English JAWS though, I' not sure what's going on because no one has reported this problem and I
don't have it here.

Insert+V. I can't find it there. Only thing I can keep in mind is that it
could be a problem with danish language and the scripts. Therefore I try to
switch Skype to english but it doesn't help. I also try to look for the
sound used for typing sounds to delte it but I can't find out where it's

Re: Updating the Command Key

Jacob
 

It's no longer in the Quick Settings menu like it was in skype Classic. Press the default command key and then Insert+C. It'll bring up a box where you can change it.

Hi everybody,

 

I need to update the command key in Skype in my computer.  The one that’s used now prevents me from writing certain accent signs when I’m typing in French.  I tried to get into the appropriate menu with insert V but it takes me to Quick Settings and when I look at all the options, I find nothing that will take me to the right place to update the command key.

 

Can someone explain what to do?

Skype 8.44 is now stable

Michele Barbi
 

Hello to all,
I recently figured out throug Ninite that Skype 8.44 is now out of beta. I recommend you to install this upgrade especially if you aren't able for some reason to install revision 813 of the Skype scripts, because I just sent a chat using NVDA and figured out that the "message sent" label is now correctly vocalized, at least in Italian.

Re: Script download problem solved

Doug Lee
 

I've heard of this a couple times in JAWS 2018, but I am not able to reproduce it here. I just now tried again and the scripts loaded normally. My best suggestion would be to see if the problem persists after a JAWS or system
restart, because I have definitely seen JAWS fail to register a ConfigNames.ini change before JAWS is restarted from time to time.

Hi all. I am pleased to report that, after the latest update to AVG

I have another issue now, and I believe other members of this list may
have had the same problem. When I open Skype and press Insert+Q to
test if the scripts are loaded correctly, JAWS makes the following
announcement:


Google Chrome settings, Skype.exe, S K Y P E.exe


I hear no revision number. I'm running Windows 10 and JAWS 2018. Any
suggestions?
