Re: Can Jaws speak incoming messages while I am typing?typing

Michele Barbi
 

Hello Ann and list, I don't know if you can do much about it...

First thing I should say is, if you configured typing echo to characters or both characters and words, you may lose some notifications, not only Skype ones, because they appear just a moment before you type a letter. Apart from that, afaik, Skype does not send notifications and "message sent" indications if split view is active; I don't remember technical reasons for this, I think Doug is more expert than me on this.

Can Jaws speak incoming messages while I am typing?typing

ann
 

Hi,


Is there a way to get Jaws to continue to read incoming messages while I am typing to send a message? This used to work flawlessly in Skype 7, but has not worked at all since Skype 8.. I'm using Jaws 2020 and/or 2019, and the latest version of Windows10.


Thanks,

~Ann


Re: Installing and running Skype Desktop Version 8.54

Doug Lee
 

There is an issue in JAWS that sometimes requires a JAWS restart after a script installation before the scripts will load. I forgot about this when I wrote you earlier. The technical issue is that changes to ConfigNames.ini may
not be detected until JAWS restarts, and the script installer adds an entry to that file that is responsible for loading the scripts when you switch focus into Skype.

Sorry I forgot to mention that one sooner, but glad things are working now.

Re: Installing and running Skype Desktop Version 8.54

Michele Barbi
 

Hey Bill, welcome back to Skype!

I'd like to just add a thing which I am not sure is clearly explained on Doug's scripts for Skype electron user's guide, that is the link that Stephen already gave you. In Skype version 8.51 and later, it is now possible to activate the split view mode in order to have separate chat windows, just like it was in older versions of Skype. If you want to do so, just press tab till you find "More options" menu button, press space, choose "Enable split view mode" with arrows, and press enter here. Beware though that in split view mode some indications are not spoken by JAWS, and possibly NVDA as well but I'm not sure of the latter, such as "message sent".

Bye!
