Hi Sugar,

the link that Jerry gave you is ok for the scripts for Skype, in that page search for the direct Download link for the Skype scripts, which you can find in the "Scripts installation instructions" heading.

If you also need the Skype installer for latest version, this link should still work: http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full

Re: Shortcut for the back button doesn't work

Doug Lee
 

I am told that the Back button is no longer present in Skype for Windows Desktop as of at least Skype 8.58 if not 8.57. Léonie, do you still encounter difficulties with this? I was starting to implement a shortcut when I
realized I could not produce the button anymore myself.

Léonie, I failed to answer this over month-old message; but typically, unanswered emails sit in my inbox until I do; and that happened here. I am slating for implementation in the Skype Electron scripts a faster way to click
the Back button, though I could not reproduce your specific issue myself. I'd be curious to know if this still happens to you. Sorry it took me so long to answer.

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

Léonie.

For Windows users: sharing a file using Skype from context menu

Michele Barbi
 

Hi guys,

I am not sure if this was the list were we talked about this topic but if not I think this info could be useful for someone.

It is now possible to share a file via Skype starting from the context menu of the file in Windows explorer, especially if you have latest 8.58 Skype version. The difference as compared to the past is that now the menu voice is not inside "SendTo submenu", you just have an option called "Share with Skype" inside the context menu, just press enter on it an you'll get a box where you have to search for the contact to whom you want to send it.

I am taking advantage to test the correct behaviour of this list, I am having some issues since this morning with other lists on this server using this account. Please write me off list at barbi.michele@... and let me know if you were able to read this message.

Bye!

Re: Skype UWP discontinued?

Doug Lee
 

grins at Michele*

Actually though, I try the manual update now and then but hadn't yet. I am now running 8.58 because the manual update worked for me, though the Update button is not labeled and, in my haste, I did not try to fix that.

From time to time, updates have come out on the website that don't become available via the in-app Update button. Those, admittedly, I have a history of ignoring until they are made available inside the app itself.

Thanks much for your testing. I'm mostly working on Teams and Slack scripts today due to our sudden increased need for business-level remote work and telecommunication.

deeply test features such as the "Sign in with another account" button
mentioned in the past, and the typing indicators feature. I'll report
here in case I realize there are problems.

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

Michele Barbi
 

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.

Jerry.


Re: sdndint files

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

It's a standard file selection dialog I believe, which means the edit box would let you type a path, not just a file name; but that you could also Shift+Tab to a list, go back farther to navigate through folders, etc.

It worked.  When I slected a file, it added it in the edit box. Clicked on Open, clicked the send file button, and Victory.
