This move does not surprise me, and that is one reason that I, though I made several partial efforts, never fully completed an up-to-date set of JAWS scripts for Skype UWP.

My JAWS scripts for Skype for Windows Desktop remain current and work with Skype 8.57, the current Skype for Windows Desktop release. I expect I will make them work with Skype 8.58 if necessary when that comes out to the public.

If the above announcement actually means that the Store Skype UWP version will become identical to the Skype for Windows Desktop version we now use, I also expect I'll try to make my scripts work for the Store app just as
they do for the Desktop app.

Labels bug fixed

Hi guys,

I think I recently posted a message since I found out a bug in Skype 8.56 or so, where after logging out of you account the "Sign in with another account" button was not labeled correctly, meaning that JAWS only said button. Now I figured out that it's fixed with Skype 8.57, so if you did not update and you often need to pass from an account to another I recommend you to update asap.

In case it is useful, I am now using Skype 8.57, JAWS 2020 latest build, and scripts revision 137. OS is Windows 10 version  1909.

Bye!

Hi all.


Does anyone know how to send files via skype?

In skype classic, I just selected a file, and slected skype in the Send
menues after using the applications key.

That doesn't seem to be there in windows 10.

Never mind.  You're right.  I typed that command in the wrong field.  It works.

Re: Shortcut for the back button doesn't work

I'm sure the window maximizing thing means that window size can govern what's included in a window in Skype Desktop. Good to know; thanks for the quick reply.

And for all else watching, keep in mind that there was a typo in the message I was answering: Alt+numbers jump to parts of Skype, not Ctrl+numbers.

locked A perhaps ironic thing to say, but, a new way to find me...

Doug Lee
 

For a long time, this has been the best place to find me for Skype script and even NVDA add-on support for Skype products, which include Skype for Windows Desktop, Skype UWP for Windows 10 though I haven't kept up so well
with that one, and Skype For Business (SFB), formerly known as Microsoft Lync.

This is still true, but the alternatives to this list are changing; and I thought I should announce this here in case it still affects anyone.

For years, I have maintained a Twitter project announcement and support account, @dlee_code. That account remains but is no longer preferred as a means of contacting me.

And now to the reason I said this message could be considered ironic:

My new preferred point of text-based contact for project support is Telegram. That would be a Skype competitor lol.

Here's how it works:

If you don't have Telegram and don't want it, you can view my project update announcements, for all my public projects including Skype-related ones, at https://t.me/s/dlee_code

The slightly shorter URL https://t.me/dlee_code will let you join my Telegram channel for project updates. That's still a view-only channel (well ok, that's what "channel" means on Telegram), but there's a link on that screen
(in Telegram) or page (in your browser) for a discussion group. If you join that group, you can talk back to me about projects I'm working on. Please keep any messages there related to projects of mine. The direct link for
joining that group is a bit messier: https://t.me/joinchat/OUU9GRieXgkcDYYdSXeGGQ

As for accessible Telegrams:
* The native iOS Telegram app works well enough with VoiceOver for sending and receiving messages, in my experience.
* The Unigram Windows Store app works well enough on Windows, and I have JAWS scripts for that one at https://www.dlee.org/unigram/
* I'm told that Telegram is decent on Android, but I don't have more specifics on that except that I also hear the explore-by-touch is often necessary to use it.

Other useful references:

My https://www.dlee.org/contact/ page is the official guide on how to contact me for various things.

My main website at https://www.dlee.org is the best place to find a current list of my public projects, of which there are currently about 40.

And finally, no, I am definitely not leaving Skype or abandoning the scripts for it. :-) Skype just doesn't offer me the sort of configuration I want for project-related communications, and Twitter has raised sufficient
concerns in my mind to make me move away from using it for this purpose - though my project update Telegram posts are currently also automatically posting to my @dlee_code Twitter. A page describing my reasons for this move
from Twitter to Telegram can be found at https://www.dlee.org/twit2tel.htm

Happy Skyping to all.

Re: Jaws losing focus with Skype for Business 2015 running

Doug Lee
 

I actually spent a fairly significant amount of time arranging the scripts for this application into three branches, all of which can be found at https://www.dlee.org/sfb/

I don't have a way to test older versions, so my idea of what should be in the older two of those may be off a bit; but if either of the last two branches on that page help you, please let me know.

I admit, though, this issue you're having is reminiscent to me of a general issue I've been seeing in several applications. Off the top of my head, they include Skype UWP (the Windows 10 alternative to Skype for Windows
Desktop) and Unigram (a Windows Telegram client that is more accessible than the native Telegram client on Windows).

The general issue I've seen is that certain types of events that cause a system tray alert to appear can also confuse JAWS' idea of which application has focus. I wonder if this is a JAWS issue because I'm not aware of it
occurring under NVDA; but I could be wrong there. I regard the acid test for this issue to be pretty clear: If you Alt+Tab twice, you should land back in the same app that had focus in the first place according to Windows,
right? So when this issue occurs and you Alt+Tab twice, you land back in the app you were working in, not the one that generated the systray alert and confused JAWS' idea of focus.

Let me know if any of the SFB/Lync script versions help you. Also I recommend contacting Freedom/Vispero if the issue is not addressed by those; and I honestly suspect that no script will currently fix this one. Sometimes
though, I would love to be wrong. :-)

Hi list

I thought perhaps my vacation leave would take care of the problem but obviously not.
The email trail is below, but in brief I need to have a group conversation open for the duration of my work shift. Each time a team member posts something to this team chat Jaws loses focus of the application I was last working on. A good example of that is that I might be navigating a Word document in the Quick Keys review mode (jaws-z) when the SFB message comes in. Jaws now thinks we're in the SFB application and the quick keys mode in Word is no longer active.
In case it helps, when the SFB message comes in, pressing Jaws-t to read the widow title Jaws announces Skype for Business.
However, pressing Jaws-q to check which scripts are running Jaws would still announce the scripts name for the application I am actually focused on.
I would appreciate any help on things I can try to resolve this.

I'm running Skype for Business 2016 here at work under what looks likeWindows 8.1. Info as per the Winver command:
"Microsoft Windows

2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
The Windows 8.1 Pro operating system and its user interface are

The latest Jaws scripts are installed and I get the following info by pressing Jaws-q twice when SFB is in focus:
"Revision 385 Lync 2013 and Skype for Business settings are used in the lync.exe application.
The configuration name is lync."

Thanks for any help.

Hi again Doug

Just to let you know I managed to get SFB 2016 installed today. Iwas so looking forward to the problem being gone, but for some reason it isn't.
I haven't tried installing your scripts for SFB 2016 yet as it's been a busy Friday, but on Monday I'll try.
Just wanted to let you know in case you were still planning to do some work on creating that beta version for the 2015 scripts to recognise Jaws 2020.

Wow, didn't know any SFB version that old was still in use out there.

I may vaguely recall that focus issue, but I believe that was fixed within SFB itself. I did not try to script around that one as far as I remember.

I'm somewhat surprised that the SFB 2015 scripts won't install into JAWS 2020, but the code could require an update. If you like, I can generate an updated beta; though I have no way to test it here. I'm just not expecting an
update to help with the focus problem you are reporting, annoying though I'm sure that issue is for you.

You might see if a Do Not Disturb status will prevent that issue, assuming your management doesn't mind you staying in that status and assuming it doesn't make you miss things you need to see. You could also try putting SFB
on another virtual desktop if your Windows version allows that, but I have never tried that one myself to know if it would help.

hope this question hasnt been addressed before.



I am required to be logged into an open team chat the whole work day as
this is how our team members post questions and announcements.

Every time a team member posts a message to the open chat my screen
reader seems to focus on the message, i.e. away from what Im currently
doing. It drives me crazy and is very unproductive as you can
imagine.

The quickest way I have found to restore focus to my current
application is by pressing the alt key twice, but surely theres a
solution?

I have checked Skype settings, specifically checking that Always on Top
wasnt checked and it doesnt make a difference.



I googled and found Doug Lees scripts for SFB and downloaded the
version for SFB prior to SFB2016, hoping that might solve it.

Unfortunately I suspect theyre not compatible with Jaws 2020, because
in the installer the list is blank under the text that reads:

The following compatible versions of JAWS have been found on your
system. All versions

are currently selected for installation. Use Space to alter
selections if necessary, then press

Install to proceed.

I then activate Install anyway but the installer just closes.



The system configuration were using at work is determined at a
corporate level, so I have no control over that. Im using:

Windows 8.1 pro

Skype for Business version 2015

JAWS Version 2020.1912.11.400



Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks



Francois Jacobs
