Re: skype 8.55

I have mixed reports on how long it takes for Skype 8, various versions, to switch to a new conversation. The longest I've heard is over 30 seconds, but my experience is more like five now. I mention that in case this is
related to some of the issues you are having.

From your description, I can't tell if you're having Skype problems or script problems. First thing to do would be to type Insert+q from within Skype with the scripts running, to see what revision number you get. If you don't
get a revision number, the scripts are not loading.

alt 1 doesn't take me anywhere.
when I press alt and any numeric jaws just announces the keys i'm

i'm unable to come out of an open chat without closing skype completely.
jaws stops speaking after about two tabs.

I've tried screen refresh and quitting and reopening jaws but no change.

i'm running 8.55, script version 137, jaws 2020 and the latest win10 build.

Hi Stephen, I noticed another bug in Skype 8.55 which may fix some of your issues meaning the impossibility to only quit the chat. Apparently, when you restart your system, split view disables by itself and you should enable it once again.

This update makes typing sounds and announcements work in Skype 8.55 as in

Also, a few extra things will speak as you navigate through a chat message
list, such as the duration of a finished call and the amount so far played
in a paused or playing voicemail. See the release notes at the above URL
for
details.

Do I just keep trying until it works?

The "Windows has protected your PC" message is one I see often when launching installers and programs downloaded from the Internet. If you are unsure whether the file is safe, you should of course not run it. Windows is trying
to help avoid virus and malware attacks by warning users when they are about to run something that came from the Internet. However, the message is not itself an indication that the installer is infected or malicious.

Doug:

I just tried to download the scripts.  It says the installer could harm the computer as it's not commonly downloaded, and won't uninstall or install the new version.

Expect a script release soon, for this and a few other things.

Re: typing sound

Jerry Pryde
 

At least, when I'm in a chat, it says Typing when someone's typing.

I don't really need it to tell me who's typing when I'm in a chat window.  That's just my opinion.

Hi, Michele.


It says the typing sounder's checked, so I assume it's enabled.On 2019-12-16 4:39 p.m., Michele Barbi wrote:

I also updated to Skype 8.55, but I figured out some other bugs, for example the split view auto-disaples after a system restart.

In the meantime, try pressing insert+v from within Skype, and make sure that the typing sounder option is enabled.

Hi all.


I've got the new scripts downloaded, and they work perfectly.

I'm using the latest Skype version, 8.55.0.141.

In a chat, the typing sound's gone.

Anyone no how to restore it?

Thanks billions as always.


Jerry.

Hello Georgie and List,

Only Skype to Skype calls are free. If you venture into other Skype services, you need to pay for them. Take a look here:
