Yes. I tried answering with control shift K and there was no video. The person calling me had sight and on my end, I’m blind. Yet another reminder that tech was not invented for blind people.

Steve, unfortunately I am not really expert with video calls since I don't have webcam on my Windows machine. I think the hotkey should be ctrl+shift+k but please someone test it.

Did you try if the command sequence which I previously gave worked?

Me too, but I don’t think it’s like the old skype where it didn’t matter where you were you could answer skype. I’m getting fed up with this skype.

Ok, here I am to integrate what others already said. First point is, the correct key is ctrl+shift+p with Skype for Windows for answering without video, but if you're a JAWS user try using this key sequence: insert+space, y, up arrow. That should even work globally.

Re: Keyboard commands for the NDA addon

Thanks Michelle. I couldn't figure out what the NVDA addon did exactly, so that's useful.

I do wish Microsoft would add shortcuts for moving directly between the history and message fields. I've asked them, but it never quite seems to materialise.

Hi Leonie, I really don't think there are hotkeys since the NVDA add-on just gives you a better experience with Skype by avoiding double-speaking and so on. You can still use native Skype hotkeys anyway, like alt+1 for focusing the conversations list, alt+2 for the contacts, ctrl+shift+p for starting an audio call, etc.

Re: Jaws losing focus with Skype for Business 2015 running

Francois Jacobs <Francois.Jacobs@...>
 

Hello Doug and all

Thanks for your responses and yes, while Windows 8.1 is rather outdated, I'm new to the company and low in the pecking order without strategic contacts at this early stage, so I have no idea how to find out when they plan to roll out newer versions for either SFB or Windows. Even if that's planned for later in the year I will have lost my mind long before that lol.

I tried the Do Not Disturb suggestion, but all it does is no longer playing a sound when a new message comes in. The Jaws focus still jumps to the message, sort of.

Doug I'm wondering whether your scripts look for Jaws under a specific folder and my setup might simply be not what the scripts are expecting?
If it's not too much trouble I'll take you up on the offer to generate an updated beta and I'm happy to try it out myself. I'm kinda desperate.

Thanks, Francois

Wow, didn't know any SFB version that old was still in use out there.

I may vaguely recall that focus issue, but I believe that was fixed within SFB itself. I did not try to script around that one as far as I remember.

I'm somewhat surprised that the SFB 2015 scripts won't install into JAWS 2020, but the code could require an update. If you like, I can generate an updated beta; though I have no way to test it here. I'm just not expecting an
update to help with the focus problem you are reporting, annoying though I'm sure that issue is for you.

You might see if a Do Not Disturb status will prevent that issue, assuming your management doesn't mind you staying in that status and assuming it doesn't make you miss things you need to see. You could also try putting SFB
on another virtual desktop if your Windows version allows that, but I have never tried that one myself to know if it would help.

Every time a team member posts a message to the open chat my screen reader seems to focus on the message, i.e. away from what I’m currently doing.  It drives me crazy and is very unproductive as you can imagine. 

The quickest way I have found to restore focus to my current application is by pressing the alt key twice, but surely there’s a solution?

I have checked Skype settings, specifically checking that Always on Top wasn’t checked and it doesn’t make a difference.

 

I googled and found Doug Lee’s scripts for SFB and downloaded the version for SFB prior to SFB2016, hoping that might solve it.

Unfortunately I suspect they’re not compatible with Jaws 2020, because in the installer the list is blank under the text that reads:

“The following compatible versions of JAWS have been found on your system.  All versions

are currently selected for installation.  Use Space to alter selections if necessary, then press

Install to proceed.”

I then activate Install anyway but the installer just closes.

 

The system configuration we’re using at work is determined at a corporate level, so I have no control over that.  I’m using:

Windows 8.1 pro

Skype for Business version 2015

JAWS Version 2020.1912.11.400

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I have no idea what that does, and I'm afraid to hit it as I am at work when logged into that skype account. Anyone else take the plunge?

Hi all.

Does anyone know what the Meet Now button on Skype 8.5 is for?

Possibly a version of the old skype me mode?
