Re: Skype 8.69, problem with the scripts

Oops... I meant to point out that I've been using the Desktop Skype version instead of the Store version for a few weeks now, because it seemed to get updates sooner. But it still does not show this update.

I have not seen an update to Skype 8.69 yet. I have seen a similar issue twice, both times when there was a call involved; so I think the issue I saw is not actually the same. I am still running Skype 8.68.

I figured out that Skype 8.69 has now been released, but after updating I
realized that there is once again the issue which Doug already fixed via
scripting, where I need to use windows+arrows after minimizing Skype and going
back in. I am afraid that Skype/Microsoft changed something in the code.

hi michelle

assuming skype is downloaded and in the list of programmes under the
windows key, here is one way of adding a shortcut to the desktop.

1. press windows key and arrow down once to come out of the search
box. first letter navigation doesn't work so arrow down to skype
folder collapsed and hit spacebar.
2. arrow once to skype and open context menu with shift f10.
3. arrow down to more and then to file location and open this.
4 wait a second and jaws will say skype checked, then open the context
menu again and press s.
5. jaws will say: windows can't create a shortcut here. do you want
the shortcut to be placed on the desktop instead?

I personally use Skype for Windows desktop, so I don't have this problem
since the desktop icon is already there. We could also uninstall this
Skype and install the Windows desktop one, but we recently need to
change Skype account so we're afraid it can lose the login data.

Re: #pole: should teams be included for discussion on this list?

I don't think we'd be duplicating the list per-say, it will just be another outlook for people to discuss skype/teams as they are kind of linked in a way. when I talk with sojmeone on skype and they use teams I can still talk, and send chats now. I've been doing this since maybe October of 2020.

Blessings.

Hello to all. I’ve created a pole located at straw pole regarding some changes I’ve become aware of about skype for businesses. We don’t discuss that much here, however in this shift I want to know your opinion. I want most answers in by Sunday at the very earliest, next Friday at the very latest.

Both pole and platform are very simple to use. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Ok, try this.

  1. don't select anything in the desktop then right click and empty area or hit shift f10.
  2. click create new,
  3. click shortcut.
  4. browse to where everything is.

follow the prompts afterwords.

If you don't find skype in the start menu, hit shift f10 and click create shortcut, then say yes to the prompt, it will create the desktop shortcut for you. Works for me every single time I have to do this.

Subject: [skypeenglish] Updating the situation of my friend

Hi guys,

I just ended a Tandem session with my friend about whom I talked some days
ago. The scripts are now working perfectly, so apparently Doug had right in
saying that restarting JAWS was sufficient. I also changed the Skype command
key because in Italian we need the default key for a character, which we use
for the verb corresponding to "is". The problem is that I was not able to
follow the directions that Sarah gave me about adding the desktop icon,
since on the context menu there's no "create shortcut" item. Two possible
doubts that came to my mind. One is, I used applications instead of
shift+f10; does it make any difference?
Secondly, she apparently did not install programs like OpenShell, do you
think it's necessary? I installed that utility on my machine, and
effectively I could find "Create shortcut" option on another app.

Bye!

  3. click "make shortcut. You will then be yelled at. Say yes, and it will be on the desktop.

hope that helps.


Re: A pair of questions regarding Skype for Windows 10

Michele Barbi
 

Hey Mich, I think I can help in your case...

Since you have quite an old JAWS version, apart from the Skype scripts which you however should make sure are installed, you will need to install the scripts load manager as well. Point your browser at www.dlee.org/slman and download the installer.

Bye!
