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.

 

Thanks.

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!

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.

Hi Doug, thanks for your response. We effectively did not restart JAWS,
so that's possibly why the scripts were not recognized properly. I'll
check it out by calling her in the next days and we'll see what happens,
but considering I also installed the latest Windows updates which
required a system restart, it's possible that now it works ok.

Re: A pair of questions regarding Skype for Windows 10

Doug Lee
 

Interesting that your friend's system is not running my scripts as expected. Make sure you restarted JAWS once after installing my scripts, because JAWS often won't see changes to the ConfigNames.ini file, which decides which
scripts to load for which application, until JAWS is restarted.

As for launching the Store version of Skype, I just type "Skype" into the Start search box and press Enter. I'm not sure how to make a Desktop shortcut for that version, but I never needed to try. Of course it is also
possible to make Skype automatically load on system start; it's a checkbox in Settings.

Skype script installation check (was Re: [skypeenglish] Skype sign-in focus problem finally identified, workaround available)

Doug Lee
 

Luis, I remember you! Nice to see you're doing well. You sent this message to the SkypeEnglish list, where I am responding also in case these tips are useful to other people.

The best way to find out if my scripts are running is to type Insert+Q from within Skype. My Skype scripts, and pretty much all of my scripts, will respond by first giving a revision number and then the application name. If
you do not hear a revision number, my scripts are not running.

By "Microsoft scripts," I assume you mean the Vispero / Freedom Scientific scripts that now come with JAWS. If you are running my scripts, you are not running those.

If you need to install or re-install my scripts, just run the installer, from https://www.dlee.org/skype/ where the current release resides (there's a download link in the user guide you will see at that address), or from a
local copy if you prefer and have one.

If you run the installer when you already have my scripts installed, the installer will first run the uninstaller for the currently installed scripts. Let that removal finish so that the new installation will be clean of any
remnants from the current installation.

Now and then over the last few months, I received reports from
people who suddenly got signed out of Skype and could not sign back

pretty much every key on
the keyboard appeared to do nothing. Here I present some details and
sort of a workaround to the problem.

First, why are people being signed out?

I believe when you switch between two different clients on a single
machine, specifically between the Microsoft Store client and the
Desktop client, you are automatically signed out and must sign in
again. There may also be
cases where changing between Skype versions will cause this, though
that's a guess.

Why does the keyboard stop working?

When the sign-in screen first appears, it works fine. However, if
you mistype a password and sign-in fails, the next screen does not
work. Though I have not determined fully the reason for this, JAWS
becomes confused as to
what is in focus. There appear to be several subcases of this issue;
namely, first screen appearance, after Tab has been used in this
screen one or more times, after Alt+Tab has been used, and possibly
a fourth case after Tab
has been used subsequent to Alt+Tab. It looks possible (though
tricky) to script for this problem, but the problem absolutely
should be fixed in Skype itself and will be far more reliable when
fixed there.

Unfortunately, the only workaround I currently know is to shut down
Skype, such as with Ctrl+Q, bring it up again, and type very
carefully. :-) This works because the first sign-in screen to appear
works properly.

I just submitted via Feedback in Skype itself the following entry:

URGENT: Screen readers can't use the sign-in screen after the first
failed login attempt because they become confused on location of
focus. Steps to reproduce: Sign out, try sign-in with wrong
password, try to sign in again.
Workaround: Unload Skype with Ctrl+Q, relaunch, and make no mistakes
on first attempt.

in with a different account and chose my account, armadillo409 but get the
same results. Here's the history. BTW, did you guys have to enter your
password twice? It seems to be asking for it twice here.

I just updated to 8.67.0.99 without incident, but mine signs in automatically. Let me know if this one resolves itself; I wonder if it's something like a busy Microsoft server that caused your sign-in to fail temporarily.

Hey all,

yet, after many tries. Is anybody else having trouble? It says that Doug Lee's
scripts are loaded but I am not able to gwet to anything such as chat list.
