How odd, I don't have that issue. You should just be able to set up a microsoft account, or log on with yours.

Re: JAWS 2020 SKYPE scripts for SKYPE 8.5.4

Michele Barbi
 

Hi Alexander and all, here it's the direct link for Skype 8 electron scripts installer: http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/jfw_skypeelectron.exe

You will hear revision 129 instead of 130 when pressing insert+q after scripts installation, and possibly even during scripts install; this is normal and harmless. Anyway, no matter the revision number, these scripts should work properly with JAWS 2020; I did not have the chance to update yet, but chatting with Doug he told me there shouldn't be problems. What you can do is try installing them and report here any issues you'll encounter.

Bye!

Re: Can Jaws speak incoming messages while I am typing?typing

Michele Barbi
 

Hello Ann and list, I don't know if you can do much about it...

First thing I should say is, if you configured typing echo to characters or both characters and words, you may lose some notifications, not only Skype ones, because they appear just a moment before you type a letter. Apart from that, afaik, Skype does not send notifications and "message sent" indications if split view is active; I don't remember technical reasons for this, I think Doug is more expert than me on this.

Can Jaws speak incoming messages while I am typing?typing

ann
 

Hi,


Is there a way to get Jaws to continue to read incoming messages while I am typing to send a message? This used to work flawlessly in Skype 7, but has not worked at all since Skype 8.. I'm using Jaws 2020 and/or 2019, and the latest version of Windows10.


Thanks,

~Ann


Re: Installing and running Skype Desktop Version 8.54

Doug Lee
 

There is an issue in JAWS that sometimes requires a JAWS restart after a script installation before the scripts will load. I forgot about this when I wrote you earlier. The technical issue is that changes to ConfigNames.ini may
not be detected until JAWS restarts, and the script installer adds an entry to that file that is responsible for loading the scripts when you switch focus into Skype.

Sorry I forgot to mention that one sooner, but glad things are working now.

Re: Installing and running Skype Desktop Version 8.54

Michele Barbi
 

Hey Bill, welcome back to Skype!

I'd like to just add a thing which I am not sure is clearly explained on Doug's scripts for Skype electron user's guide, that is the link that Stephen already gave you. In Skype version 8.51 and later, it is now possible to activate the split view mode in order to have separate chat windows, just like it was in older versions of Skype. If you want to do so, just press tab till you find "More options" menu button, press space, choose "Enable split view mode" with arrows, and press enter here. Beware though that in split view mode some indications are not spoken by JAWS, and possibly NVDA as well but I'm not sure of the latter, such as "message sent".

Bye!
