Yep, have had that issue too. My students just have their names, not if they have ben active. One is on DND but still picks up as if he heard the call. Others say "active recently." but they are online now. Yeah, confusing.

Hey all,

 

 

It seems like lately skype is incorrectly showing  my contact's status.

I'm seeing mine sometimes as being offline when they are in fact right

there. Also, some have told me that mine shows me offline when I am

certainly here. Is anybody else seeing this?

Hi everybody,

 

I`m trying to create a small group for an English course I help teach.  I was able to do this with the older versions of Skype but I`m having trouble figuring out how to do it with the latest one.  I have the latest versions of Jaws and Skype.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Skype can handle stereo as they are using ipus. But no this cannot be done. They do not want to have stereo audio. You can do things on the regular server but maybe just let people know it's a test.

Good luck.

Hi folks ken here with an interesting puzzle.  Our radio station has several prospective DJs, but right now we don’t have a testing server to use for training or for any tweaking we DJ might have to do on our end.  Someone suggested if we can’t get a test server that maybe we could use skype.  While someone might hear the music or any talking a DJ might do they wouldn’t be actually hearing what it really would sound like on the air.  So the question is this.  Is there a way that someone listening to a prospective DJ could actually hear in stereo and all what that DJ is actually putting out using skype.  In case they need to maybe tweak settings.  I personally doubt it can be done because I don’t think skype has enough band width to handle stereo for example.

I don't have Jaws 18 available to test with, but with Doug's scripts and Jaws 2020, I don't experience that problem in that version of Skype. Suggest your friend try installing the scripts as a first step?
