Hello,

I've just installed Skype 8.55.0.141 on a Windows 10 machine with a
fresh install of Jaws 2020, and version 137 of the Jaws scripts, and I
can no longer get the control 1 shortcut to work. Instead I have to tab
around to find the back button.

I've tried reinstalling both Skype and the Jaws scripts but it hasn't
helped. I've restarted both my laptop and Jaws each time, but that
hasn't worked either.

Help welcome. Thanks

Re: Chat Sounder

Actually, it does say Typing.

It's just that, if I'm working in another window, the message indicater doesn't seem to sound in split mode.

Ok, let me integrate what Doug already said...

One more thing that does not work in split view is Skype native typing announcement, meaning that JAWS won't say that your contact is currently typing. If you want to hear these announcements in split view, you'll have to check JAWS' proper typing announcement, and you do that by pressing JAWSKey+v from within Skype in order to open the quick settings, and check the "typing announce" option.

Skype 8.55.0.141 with script revision 137.

The typing sound works in single view, and the indescribable sound as well when a message comes in.

Jaws 2020.

A few clarifications:

Which Skype version and version number? Skype Desktop and Skype UWP are the versions, and Desktop versions start with 8 whereas UWP versions start with 14.

If you're using JAWS, what is the script revision number spoken when you type Insert+q in the Skype window?

Do you mean the clicking typing sound, or the "Message sent" announcements when you send a message, or something else?

Answers for various cases:

In Skype Desktop, the typing clicks should work in both regular and split views, but "Message sent" etc. do not speak in split view because of how that announcement is implemented by Skype itself. If your JAWS scripts are too
old, typing sounds might not work in split view.

In Skype UWP, typing sounds are not working at this time due to major changes in the display since I wrote the scripts; and "Message sent" etc. are not supported by Skype itself as far as I know.

Hi,

I have a problem with a friend of mine where she is not able to sign in to Skype. During a Tandem session I figured out Skype is asking her for a code, but I realized on delay that Skype has got a mail which probably she does no longer use. I did not see an option, say, for using sms. At this point, do we need to create a new Skype account?

Skype 8.55, another bug found

Michele Barbi
 

Hi to all, I am using Skype 8.55 as in subject, and I found out another bug. Don't know if Doug can fix it via scripting, anyway the point is as follows. When you disconnect to your account, in the window that pops up after pressing Yes, the button which used to be "Sign in with another account" is no longer labeled correctly, it just says button. Beware though that I use Skype in Italian, and I am still with JAWS 2019.0.1906, I did not manage to upgrade to 2020 for now.

Re: ringtones

Michele Barbi
 

Guys I have to confirm what our dearest mod already said, and what I personally believed, since I searched on Google. Basically Skype 8 electron and Skype 14 for Windows 10 don't let you change ringtones, like any notification sounds, at least till now. The post I read was referring to Skype 8.34, but I think nothing changed in most recent times.

Bye!

I just discovered something.

When i get the not commonly downloaded message, I tabbed over to something  called Actions.

I clicked on it, and it took me to something called smart screen, with an option, Don't Run This program.

Does that mean anything, and should I click on that option?

It says, JFW Skype.exe is not commonly downloaded and may harm your computer, after a security scan.
