Re: maybe someone on this list knows

Hi,
If you have multiple sound cards, your settings in zoom may be pointing to the wrong sound card.
This has happened many times to me, especially after a windows update when the sound cards get switched back to defaults, by windows and I am left with no speech.
Also double check all mute buttons especially after windows updates.
If you only have one sound card, then you can probably delete my message.
Larry

You might need to find the mute/unmute button with the tab.

Does anyone have a clue why I can't hear anyone while I'm attending a

A little off-topic but I figure some on this list are Zoomers as well
and this one has got me stumped.
Any help is appreciated.

Hi again all.


Confirmed:

I was in the Skype window, when a call came in.

It said:  Call from...

Press contrul=shift=p to accept, control=f=h to reject.

Steve:

I'm guessing you want to lower the audio on a call.

Ins-F11, arrow down to Speakers, and enter.

Choose M for volume mixer, and tab over to Volume For Skype and use the arrows to adjust volume.

That's how I do it, unless somebody knows an easier way to lower volume on a call, I'm interested.

The space bar only works if you're sitting on the End Call button.

But, control shift h works perfectly.

Control l-E does not work in v-8.64. However, control shift l-H works and oddly enough, just hitting the spacebar also appears to end a call.

Hello,

Try Control+Shift+H.

But isn't Control+Shift+H introduced in the beta/preview version of Skype, which is 8.65? I think Control+E still works in v8.64. Which version are you using?

Hi all, I am now out of home once again untill saturday, september 19, 2020. I figured out though that they apparently released two builds of Skype 8.64 in a short period of time, but it’s since 10 days I am no longer using Skype for Windows. Apparently though, they changed the hotkey for ending a call, and I don’t understand why they did it. Thank you so much for telling me.
Bye!

Group Guidelines #guidelines-notice

main@skypeenglish.groups.io Group Moderators <main@...>
 

Hello all. It's that time again, where a reminder is sent out  once a month regarding the rules so here they are.
 
Hello to all.  Hear is this month's reminder of the Skype English rules. taken right from the welcome message
 
Hello and welcome to the Skype English list. Here our goal is to have fun discussing various things related to skype and the screen 
readers such as jaws and others.  Remember the following:
 
1. flaming of any kind, virus warnings, spam, or anything off topic will not be tolerated.
 
2. Posting in HTML is aloud, but no links will work. The message will hopefully be converted to plain text. Let me know if you see 
any attachments. i doubt you will.
 
3. Absolutely no attachments are aloud on this list. Security comes first and this will minimize the chance of viruses spreading.
 
4. Keep all intro threads to at least 3  or 4 messages before the thread is taken off list. That way we don't drift off topic. I 
know this is going to be hard for most of us including this mod here but if we keep the  messages on topic the archives will look 
a lot cleaner and people will be able to find info on what they need.
 
5. speaking of clean archives absolutely no discussion of anything other than Skype and its use with screen readers will be tolerated on this list.  If the admin notices any other topics such as google talk on this list they will close the thread immediately. I hate to do this but this is to keep the archives easier to find for old members as well as new ones.
6. When you first join this list it's normally customary to send out an intro message.  Since this list is growing by leaps and bounds this will cease and desist.  The new comer will now  if they want to send out a question regarding the scripts, skype, gw connect, anything that this list covers. any "hello" messages and "I'm new. here is my info" messages will no longer be tolerated.  We want to keep the searchable archives at the mail archive as clean as possible.
 
7. Before you post your question(s) to the list,  please search the group archives or do a google search. This prevents the cycle of repeated messages. It also teaches you the user to search before asking for help. Oly when you have exhausted yoru resources should you come to this list. We get a lot of messages, so the archives are full of stuff dating back to at least 2005.
 
. Have  fun and happy skyping.
 
 
Failure to abide by any of these rules, especially the last one, will get you 3 strikes then the member is band from said list.
Take care all.

Ok Doug, thanks for your response and sorry because I didn’t know they really were the same thing…

Re: JAWS scripts for Skype updated to address the ChromeLegacyWindow issue

I think you're asking about the same issue: The ChromeLegacyWindow announcement occurs when Skype has been minimized.

Hi Doug and list, thanks for your effort, I’ll be back home on august 29, we’ll see if Skype natively fixes it in the meantime, if not I’ll immediately upgrade scripts.
Do they also fix the other issue of not reading the Skype window when going back in after minimizing it? In other words, are these two problems somehow related?
