Re: Quoting in Skype, why it does not work on my hand?

Ok guys, you can now disregard my previous question. I tested it again and now I found out that checkbox in options / messaging, so it was really like that, getting up gradually to users.

Bye!

Hi All,

Since yesterday mid-day, sbcglobal.net has been blocking us. I have attempted to contact them, but no response so far. If you are an sbcglobal.net user, I ask that you contact them as well.

Quoting in Skype, why it does not work on my hand?

Michele Barbi
 

Hi guys,

Skype has recently been updated to 8.56, and on the release notes they say they improved quoting on skype. There should be a new checkbox under Settings / Messaging, someting like "Paste copied messages as quotes", but I can't find it. I thought it was a localization issue at first msince I use Skype in Italian, but even by temporarily setting it in English no go. Do you think it's something gradually rolling out to users like Split view was at the beginning?

Note that they say it's not available in Skype for Windows 10, but I think they refer to version 14.x; even if I use Windows 10 as my OS, I use Skype 8.56 for desktop.

Bye!

Ok, then I'll need to inform myself if there is really a hotkey for doing so, since I don't use webcam on my Windows desktop machine.

But, are you sure your friend actually activated video while making the call?

Never mind.  I figured it out.

insert plus space, y, down arrow ends audio calls.

Thanks anyway all.

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?

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

Léonie Watson
 

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.

On 31/01/2020 09:48, Michele Barbi wrote:
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.
