Michele,

Thanks for the help. I had already checked those settings but figured, well, I could  have missed something.

I copied these settings from speech history. Seems like  these should be right.

Hi Gary, try going in the Skype preferences, notifications tab; there you should find a checkbox which says "play sound for new message", make sure it is checked.

I seem to have lost the notification sound when you receive a text message.  Any idea why?

For that particular string, Tab to the button that tells you your balance, figure out part of its name that is
unique to it that can be used to search for it, and replace "Skype Credit balance is" with your phrase choice,
making sure to preserve letter casing, as the comment says this is necessary.

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...

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.

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.
But to keep it active, best thing is to pay when its time to do so.

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.

Hi to all, I even jumped revision 194 because I did not know it was released,

Let's see if typing indicators will work in split view, lol!

I am now using JAWS 2021 build 2107. Skype is already at version 8.74 btw.

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.

I just released JAWS Skype script revision 197 at https://www.dlee.org/skype/

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.

If you have an auto-renewal set up, you will be charged for the next period automatically and your number will
remain active. If you don't have an auto-renewal set up, your number will expire.
