Re: I think Skype is dead, daad, dead

Michele Barbi
 

Hello guys, starting from the end, as I said yesterday on my case sounds are effectively working, only thing that comes to my mind is that possibly the sound for an incoming message can be a little lower than the other ones, but I actually was having my headphones when I got them yesterday.

Talking about versions instead, they also launched 8.69 for a certain period but it apparently has been retired, at least for Windows. What I normally do instead is as follows: I consult https://ninite.com for checking if there are updates of my program, and when I see one of Skype I immediately go to download the installer from its website. So, summarizing, here are my suppositions:


  1. the Skype autoupdater is not working, at least not for every user;-- 
    
  2. if you're using Skype for Windows 10 (formerly Skype uwp), chances are there is an issue in the Microsoft Store for Skype updates.
Bye!

8.71.0.49

That's what came down in the automatic update.  So, I uninstalled it after restarting the system, because the sounds weren't working.

After a fresh download from skype.com, it seems to be OK so far.

I'm checking regularly for messages, just in case.

The ringtone when a call comes in works, and the hang up sound.

The typing and the incoming message sounds don't seem to work.

Well, Lino. You are running Skype version 8.68, and I just yesterday to the Skype website, and updated to version 8.71. If you want to give up that easily, it's your choice. But I'd rather see them develop something that works, instead of developing something it will take them several builds to fix any bugs.

Well like I said. I've not seen any new development of new versions of Skype. Has anyone heard anything new from Microsloth? I'm running Skype Indider builds and I'am at V 8.68. I'll give it till May 31 and if I hear nothing I'm ditching Skype forever and lieaving this list. Nothing against you guys of course. You all are good people.

Re: Skype sounds

Michele Barbi
 

Allright Jerry, I am on a conference with some people from Italy, a girl from Puerto Rico sent me a chat and sound worked perfectly. So yes, I am afraid you need to reinstall Skype; if you have the chance, in order to uninstall Skype use some utilities like Revo Uninstaller or Uninstaller by Puran which also remove files and registry keys from the app.

Bye!

Chances are they realized some bugs including this one.

I'm on a mac, and the sounds are working here. Try reinstalling skype or restarting the computer, not in that order.

Hi all.

Has anyone noticed that the skype sounds aren't working?

There's no sound indicating a message, for example. The only sound that seems to work is the ringtone when a call comes in.

I have repeatedly looked but never seen Skype 8.69 offered directly by Microsoft, though I have checked the Microsoft Store and the "Check for Updates" in Desktop Skype more often than I checked the skype.com website.

I'm using Skype for Windows version 8.68.0.96, the latest version I'm aware of.

I actually did a fresh download recently, and that's what I got from skype.com

Not sure this is helpful.

Possible confusion on Skype UWP scripts for JAWS

Doug Lee
 

Inamuddin today caused me to realize that I never removed from my website the old JAWS scripts for Skype UWP, which were revision 123. I have now removed them. The URL was https://www.dlee.org/skype/uwp/ and it now points to
the main scripts that work with both Skype UWP and Skype for Windows Desktop identically.

If you have Skype script revision 123 and are using Skype UWP, go to https://www.dlee.org/skype/ and grab an update. The current script release for both Skypes is revision 185. This upgrade should fix problems such as JAWS
saying "control not found" when you type Alt+2.

Sorry for any confusion.

Hi Kimmie,

I recently reported it to the list, I think that Skype 8.69 broke the
fix that Doug already made for this in the past. For the time beeing,
when you hear this message press windows+up arrow, or if the window is
already maximized, press before windows+down and then windows+up. I
hope
that there will be a new fix soon.

Now that we're on topic, since you're using JAWS 2019, if it's lower
than the august 2019 update, you should also install the scripts load
manager which you can find at www.dlee.org/slman

Bye!
