I have a question, Chrome Legacy Windows (Charm)

Geno Stone
 

So, did the 2004 windows ten up-date.. No issues using the latest of Jaws release with Skype and the Scripts.. Then  3 or 4  days ago a Accumulative 2004 up date and did and no issues, Except and not sure the latest Skype release which I did too, or the Accumulative 2004.. Yet opening skype and if a restart fine for a bit and left open this covering over top of the Skype screen, Chrome Legacy Windows.. Can’t do a darn thing.. My son sighted says he sees nothing and Jaws does.. doing research on Google Chrome.. they noted and yet we don’t see how to remove this so I can get back to using Skype.. Anyone had this issue?

Geno in Portland, Maine..

Hi Doug, thanks for your effort on making this report. I think I cannot do it right now because I am now on my Macbook now since I am on holiday, my connection is also not very good working right now.
Bye!

On hearing this morning that Skype 8.64, apparently in beta, also exhibits this issue, I filed the following comment for Microsoft via the "Report a Problem" item in the Skype Help menu; and I invite others to remark
similarly from their own Skype instances, so that Microsoft hears a chorus of voices and not just one:

Skype 8.63 and apparently the beta 8.64: After a call and after the Skype window is minimized, focusing it while running a screen reader such as JAWS does not work well. We hear "Chrome Legacy Window" and cannot navigate or
read. Tapping Alt twice, or Alt then Esc, or Windows+Down then Windows+Up revives the Skype window for use. See also a similar problem that appeared and was fixed in Teams 1.3 within the last few months. This is a serious
disruption for blind Skype users.

minutes I have to press the alt key again.

Has anyone reported this to skype and the screen reader makers if at all possible. Where is the problem exactly, or is this the case of both?

Alt functionality, Windows up/down errow  and restarting your screen reader whatever screen reader you are using!

Hi guys, I just tested the alt functionality that Stephen suggested in

order to fix the problems with Skype. Basically it works just fine,

beware though that you'll open the menu bar, so you should press it once

again or esc to close it and go back to the Skype main window.

 

Bye!

Hi Stephen, thanks for the tip. I'll also test the alt key, I already tested win+arrows and they work ok.

Hi Doug and all, first of all thanks for the commands which I did not
know. I also saw a thread about chrome legacy window, I have reason to
believe that they're somehow related.

Concerning the minimize and maximize Skype, this is probably because I
have set the Skype icon on desktop like other ones to be shown maximized
by default.

This looks very much like a problem I've seen in Teams that was fixed there by now in Teams itself. The basic situation is this: The Skype accessibility information starts showing up in a different window than the one that
gets focus, so JAWS and probably all other screen readers fail to figure out correctly what's going on.

Interestingly enough, the solution is often as simple as maximizing the window, such as with Windows+UpArrow. Sometimes in Teams, it was necessary to minimize first and then maximize; but I'm not seeing that here in Skype
so far. I believe you are finding the min-then-max approach more effective though, based on our Skype chat.

Does anyone know why "Chrome Legacy" pops up on Skype 8.6?

The only solution seems to be signing out and back in.

problem with jaws 2020 and skype 8.63

Mike Bernard
 

Hi everyone:

Has anyone noticed how ever since the recent upgrade from Skype 8.6 to 8.63, jaws will stop speaking the skype icons when a call either comes in or hangs up? It seems that the only way to fix this issue is to shut Jaws down and start it up again each and every time. This is not good

Mike.

Re: Chrome Legacy

Jerry Pryde
 

Thanks, Leonie.

I also discovered that downloading the new version from the website, instead of installing the new update via notification seems to have helped.

The simulated right click works for a while, then, it pops up again.

The fresh download may have worked.

Skype 8.63, problems with hotkeys fixed

Michele Barbi
 

Hi guys,

I knew from Ninite that Skype 8.63 is now out, if you're not autoupgraded you can of course download the installer from Ninite or from Skype official website. I kindly inform you that the problems with hotkeys in Windows appear to be fixed according to the tests I ran, I was able to make 2 audio calls starting from the contact list, choosing the contact with enter and pressing ctrl+shift+p.

Bye!

Also keep in mind those SMS do expire after a set amount of time, so you may need to re-generate that code.

If you received a code via sms and it asks you to confirm it in an edit box, go ahead; I think it's a security thing.
