Re: Jaws losing focus with Skype for Business 2015 running

Francois Jacobs <Francois.Jacobs@...>
 

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 Jaws now thinks we're in the SFB application and the quick keys mode in Word is no longer active.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
Version 6.3 (Build 9600)
© 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
The Windows 8.1 Pro operating system and its user interface are
protected by trademark and other pending or existing intellectual property
rights in the United States and other countries/regions."

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.
Francois

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.

Thanks, Francois

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.

I googled and found Doug Leeâs scripts for SFB and downloaded the

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

âThe following compatible versions of JAWS have been found on your

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

Install to proceed.â

I then activate Install anyway but the installer just closes.

The system configuration weâre using at work is determined at a

Skype for Business version 2015

JAWS Version 2020.1912.11.400

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Updates for Microsoft Lync and Skype For Business (SFB) JAWS scripts

Michele Barbi
 

Ok Doug, I admit I never used Skype for business but I installed Office 2013 and so here I am to report what I found.

At first I checked on history of Windows update since I remembered something that I installed in the automatic updates but I did not manage to recall it well. So I opened C:\Program files\Microsoft Office\Office15, and found the file Lync.exe. Launching this file it appeared Skype for business as the window title, and in order to be sure of the correct version, I went to "Show menu button", then question mark submenu, about Skype for business, and figured out that yeah it was Skype for business 2015. I hope that it's useful.

Bye!

Updates for Microsoft Lync and Skype For Business (SFB) JAWS scripts

Doug Lee
 

This message concerns the commercial-grade Lync and Skype For Business products, not the consumer-grade Skype products.

Due to a number of folks needing support for older Skype for Business and Microsoft Lync versions, I have spent a fair amount of time setting up three separate script sets for these products. I have no way to test any except
the first one below though, so I would greatly appreciate it if those who run older product versions could help me make sure that I have coded and named these sets correctly.
For example, I'm not sure what product names Microsoft has used (e.g., was there a product called Skype For Business 2015, or just 2016?).

All of these sets can easily be reached from one URL: https://www.dlee.org/sfb/

Here are the sets, with their specific addresses even though they can be reached from the above URL:

Scripts for Skype For Business (SFB) for Office 365: https://www.dlee.org/sfb/365/

Scripts for Skype For Business (SFB) 2016: https://www.dlee.org/sfb/16/

Scripts for Microsoft Lync 2013 and early SFB versions (SFB 2015?): https://www.dlee.org/sfb/15/

Thanks much for any help.

Re: Jaws losing focus with Skype for Business 2015 running

Doug Lee
 

To all other listers: The below refers only to Skype For Business and its predecessor Lync, not to the consumer-grade Skype products.

I have split the SFB/Lync scripts into three different branches, as follows:

365: The current SFB scripts, aimed at the SFB in Office 365. This branch is at https://www.dlee.org/sfb/365/

15: The script support for Microsoft Lync 2013 and Skype For Business versions from 2015 and 2016 (early SFB 2016). This branch is up to date and is at https://www.dlee.org/sfb/15/

16: The script support for Skype For Business 2016, before it was rolled into Office 365. This branch is not yet complete but will appear at https://www.dlee.org/sfb/16/

When all three branches are complete, I will replace https://www.dlee.org/sfb/ with a page that just connects to the other three. For now though, that page remains the multi-branch page it has been for years.

You are welcome to try the 15 branch, though I'm not sure if that might be a step backward depending on the scripts you now have.

Quoting in Skype, why it does not work on my hand?

Michele Barbi
 

Hi guys,

Skype has recently been updated to 8.56, and on the release notes they say they improved quoting on skype. There should be a new checkbox under Settings / Messaging, someting like "Paste copied messages as quotes", but I can't find it. I thought it was a localization issue at first msince I use Skype in Italian, but even by temporarily setting it in English no go. Do you think it's something gradually rolling out to users like Split view was at the beginning?

Note that they say it's not available in Skype for Windows 10, but I think they refer to version 14.x; even if I use Windows 10 as my OS, I use Skype 8.56 for desktop.

Bye!

Is there a global command to end audio calls?

Ok, then I'll need to inform myself if there is really a hotkey for doing so, since I don't use webcam on my Windows desktop machine.

But, are you sure your friend actually activated video while making the call?

Bye!

Yes. I tried answering with control shift K and there was no video. The person calling me had sight and on my end, I’m blind. Yet another reminder that tech was not invented for blind people.

Steve, unfortunately I am not really expert with video calls since I don't have webcam on my Windows machine. I think the hotkey should be ctrl+shift+k but please someone test it.

Did you try if the command sequence which I previously gave worked?

Bye!

Me too, but I don’t think it’s like the old skype where it didn’t matter where you were you could answer skype. I’m getting fed up with this skype.

Hi all, I’ve notice that when your not in the Skype window, Control plus P will not work. Is there a way to make this work when you are not in the Skype window?

Ok, here I am to integrate what others already said. First point is, the correct key is ctrl+shift+p with Skype for Windows for answering without video, but if you're a JAWS user try using this key sequence: insert+space, y, up arrow. That should even work globally.

Bye!

No, it's now a feature, not a bug. I don't even see a global option in preferences. OH well, I can deal with it, I do for my job.

I don't think so, not anymore. I don't think the keys are global since maybe 2 years ago.

I hope to be wrong.
