Re: Skype 8.72, "message sent" announcement

Michele Barbi
 

Allright, I need to add an important thing about my previous announcement due to my following tests. In order for this to work, both window should be, let's say, at the same level; for example, if you set Skype to maximize its main window such as from the desktop icon's properties, chat window should also be maximized.

Skype 8.72, "message sent" announcement

Michele Barbi
 

Hi guys, I verified today on ninite that Skype 8.72 is now out. I installed it through Skype website, and figured out that now the words "message sent" are read when using double view mode as I have, the one that has separate chat windows. Tested with scripts revision 188 and JAWS 2021.2102.

Re: Typing sounder not working

Ok Doug, you probably have a lower version than mine. I sincerely never used the Windows store version, so I don't know which version there is now in this particular way, nor I know when updates are available from the store.

Thanks Billions.

I just updated the scripts.  Let's see what happens from here.

My mistake to some degree; I forgot to check for updates on the scripts.

I can hear the sounds of incoming chat, the ones that aren't working now are typing sounder even if they're active in JAWS quick settings. I don't know if they're now language dependent, if so I think I'll write to Gianluca and ask if he will continue to translate the scripts, and if not I'll will possibly take his place.

Re: Typing sounder not working

I don't immediately see a language-sensitive element in the typing indicator code; but the indicators work here, so I wonder if there is an issue in the translation anyway.

I am using Skype 8. Since yours is newer, that could also be the issue. I stopped using the Desktop, non-store, version because for some reason it stopped showing me some messages in one conversation that showed up correctly
in this one.

Re: Skype for iPhone, many tabs selected when they shouldn't

Michele Barbi
 

Hi Sarah, when I go out from Skype I normally disconnect it answering yes when prompted for keeping login data, and close Skype from applications switcher. At this point I think I'll directly reinstall it.

Now that it comes to my mind, I also am encountering another issue where voice messages are not playing from Skype for iPhone.

No, I have not seen this issue. I'll have to see if it happens to me and if so I will be trying to send them feedback. Have you tried restarting theephone, relaunching skype after a force quit, then reinstalling skype

Do you think it's an accessibility issue or what else? Did any of you encounter it as well?

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.

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.
