Well folks. After some thinking I'm removing Skype for good and leaving this group. I know I don't have to write this message, but I wanted to thank and give a hardy vitural handshake to Douggy Lee for writing the awesomer than awesome scripts for JFW. I also want to thank Sarah for running this ideration of the list and for Petros who used to run it way, way, way back. Now with that said the future of Skype is as they say dead in the water. In WIN 11 which is coming out in the fall will not have Skype. Skype's audio quallity has nothing but piss poor. I've not been happy with it for years now. I use Google Duo etc. on Android.
Also I downloaded MS Teams which if anyone wants to join me their go for it. I don't see MS doing anymore development for Skype in 2022 and beyond. Skype. You and I have been friends since 2004. Its like leaving an old friend who's died. Some of you I've helped for many years like Barbas. And with that I'm outa here. Find me on socials. I'll be their.

I'm currently running Skype version 8.73 and I've noticed that they finally brought back the check boxes where we can easily add people to the call that's currently in progress. This version appears to work fine with Jaws. However, it'd be nice if they'd bring back the start up and shut down sounds, as well as the ability to change skype sounds and give us back the sound that would tell you that someone is trying to call, even while you're already in an active call. I still have yet to find out what the mobile version of skype is like, but because of the darn touch screen keyboard, this is quite a challenege. I mean challenge. I think due to the multitudes of complaints sent in to them even by our sighted counter parts, they're slowly starting to get the message that they've got to put back the accessability. We'll certainly miss you Lino.

Well that was telling us wasn't it. In fact I have found that skype is just about the same as before, and it seems to be much easier to handle. Have I just got the patience or what? Remember how we used to use alt1 to find our favorite contacts, well it's back.

Ah, Lino, in case you still see this... I've always seen you as both blunt and quick to move. This has pros
and cons of course.

I find that in Skype 8.72, the long hated delay on opening a new conversation is completely gone. This of
course does not by itself indicate that Skype will live forever, but I'd say it does indicate continuing
development.

I continue to use Skype, though I prefer Telegram and specifically Unigram these days.

There is still another long-standing problem though were I am not able to listen to voice messages, but I need to investigate if it deals with something with my wireless or what else.

Skype 8.72, a correction...

Hi guys, I'm sorry for what I wrote yesterday about Skype 8.72. It really seems that the announcement about message sent does not always work while in double view mode, but I unfortunately did not manage to identify the crytheria according to which JAWS says that

Re: Skype 8.72, "message sent" announcement

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.

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.
