Re: Skype scripts, some reports/questions that I have

The balance command requires a new string to be translated; see skype_lang.xml.

I'll check the other items when time permits.

1. typing indicators don't work in split view, and like I was afraid,
revision 197 didn't fix that;
2. when pressing insert+h, it gives me the general Windows hotkeys
instead of Skype specific ones;
3. I tried the command for knowing my balance and it tells me "balance
not found". Note though that I once had it but I did not renew it
since a long time because I no longer use Skype audio calls, so
when I saw it it said €0,00.

By the way, our official italian scripts translator somehow disappeared
and I am no longer in touch with him...

Re: Skype phone number

Hi Josephine,

Incase you don't renew your skype subscription, then after a certain period of time, the number gets resigned to someone else.

Re: Skype being discontinued?

Doug Lee
 

Skype for Business, SFB, is being discontinued. The consumer Skype that we're talking about is not, to my
knowledge, scheduled for discontinuation at this time; but many people think that Microsoft Teams will
eventually replace it. I classify that as a rumor, even though there is some sense behind it.

Is this really the case? If so do you have a source or link?

I know MS is really hanging their hat on Teams now but I’ve not heard
that Skype is going away any time soon.

Thanks,

John

Skype would email you too about this.

Re: JAWS Skype script update, and next step plans

Doug Lee
 

Ah yes, the Desktop app version is sometimes ahead of the Store version, but the Desktop version broke on my
machine a while back and a re-install did not fix it, so I use only the Store app now and sometimes have to
wait for an update to get there.

I still use Skype, so I script for myself and share the results. Also, sometimes I do things based on
suggestions from other people who still use it.

This update just fixes a few chat handling issues and adds the key sequence [ B for reading the current Skype

failing to announce when crossing over a date.)

My plan for the next Skype release is worth mentioning ahead of time...

I plan to make my Skype scripts work with the Vispero scripts in your current JAWS version instead of
replacing them. This has several side effects:

1. The features supported will vary based on your JAWS version.

2. The minimum JAWS version I support will be JAWS 2018 instead of 17.0, because older JAWS versions supported
the obsolete Skype 7 application with scripts of the same name, and we don't want to run those with mine. :-)

3. Some of the features, and hopefully any new features Vispero adds, will start working whether you use my
scripts or not.

Again, the above list of effects should apply to my next release, not the release I posted today.

The reason I waited this long to do this is that it is difficult to support Vispero scripts without requiring
them, and I did not want to move the minimum JAWS version up too fast.

Subject: [skypeenglish] Leaving the group and deleteing Skype

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 thought that teams was only to do with groups. I like the way skype is at the moment, but it does need a little bit more tweaking, but it's miles better than what it was.

Skyupe on mac keeps freezing when I hit clise to hide my call panel.
Other problems abound as well, and skype has not fixed them as of yet.
Plus I need to get stuff from me to my studentrs and skype will not
sometimes cooperate with teams.

I don't mind the touch scree, use it every day for work. I don't use
skype on my phone except to commhnicate with my clients, but I think
we are going to switch to teams, thank god. And it can't come soon
enough.

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.
