Re: Skype sign-in focus problem finally identified, workaround available

Doug Lee
 

I submitted first through Skype itself and then also through the feedback portal on the Skype website. I did not use the Feedback Hub, both because that looks like it's more for Windows ingeneral and because I am using an
offline Windows account on this computer.

Now and then over the last few months, I received reports from
people who suddenly got signed out of Skype and could not sign back
in. Invariably, the ultimate complaint was that Tab, Shift+Tab, and
pretty much every key on
the keyboard appeared to do nothing. Here I present some details and
sort of a workaround to the problem.

First, why are people being signed out?

I believe when you switch between two different clients on a single
machine, specifically between the Microsoft Store client and the
Desktop client, you are automatically signed out and must sign in
again. There may also be
cases where changing between Skype versions will cause this, though
that's a guess.

Why does the keyboard stop working?

When the sign-in screen first appears, it works fine. However, if
you mistype a password and sign-in fails, the next screen does not
work. Though I have not determined fully the reason for this, JAWS
becomes confused as to
what is in focus. There appear to be several subcases of this issue;
namely, first screen appearance, after Tab has been used in this
screen one or more times, after Alt+Tab has been used, and possibly
a fourth case after Tab
has been used subsequent to Alt+Tab. It looks possible (though
tricky) to script for this problem, but the problem absolutely
should be fixed in Skype itself and will be far more reliable when
fixed there.

Unfortunately, the only workaround I currently know is to shut down
Skype, such as with Ctrl+Q, bring it up again, and type very
carefully. :-) This works because the first sign-in screen to appear
works properly.

I just submitted via Feedback in Skype itself the following entry:

URGENT: Screen readers can't use the sign-in screen after the first
failed login attempt because they become confused on location of
focus. Steps to reproduce: Sign out, try sign-in with wrong
password, try to sign in again.
Workaround: Unload Skype with Ctrl+Q, relaunch, and make no mistakes
on first attempt.

I was just thinking about that.

Uninstall it, go to

www.skype.com

and download it direct.  I've done that with other versions and it seemd to work.

All I did was click on the notification thing, and let it install automatically.  It should load when I restart, which I haven't tried yet.

Re: skype update problems

Michele Barbi
 

Hi guys, I personally received a notification in Skype which was not very accessible, but after clicking I got updated to 8.67.0.99 without problems. What I noticed though is that in latest period they released many hotfixes for Skype 8.67, though apparently for Windows only.

Bye to all, and happy 2021!

Same here, complete with test call, and messaging.  It all seems to be working here as well.

Hi, Ken. When you get these unconfirmed downloads, you must go to your download area with CONTROL plus J, find the "Keep, and Keep Anyway" buttons and click them to keep the downloaded file.

Try the skype official website? I don't have a link but if you go to skype.com and grab it from there you should be good to go. I can't help you with your other issue as that's OT.
