Hello Sarah,


Yeah, tried all those things and more. Time to trade this one in and start fromscratch. That was in the plans already. Thanks.

I can verify that. If I look in the accessibility messages that they have for mac os, it does say"file sent" and not "message sent" when it should.

Ever since the last update to Skype Jaws tells me something like "File
sent, message sent, file sent" whenever I send a message. The update to
8.54.0.85 hasn't helped.

Anyone else having the same problem?

I'm using Jaws latest, and the latest of Doug's scripts.

I've had this happening too.

But, it didn't affect functionality, so, forf me, it's no big deal.

That makes sense; in split view, these announcements, even the right ones, are not likely to happen as Skype is currently written.

Re: Skype Calling Question

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

Ou will need to type in the country code of +44 or select it from the drop-down list in the Dial Pad which may make things easier.
Also you can search for the country you are wanting to call and have Skype fill in the appropriate code for you.

Hi all.


I just got a years subscription to Office 365, including a 60-minute per month calling on Skype.

I'll be calling the UK from Canada.

Do I need to type in 44, the country code, or just the actual number?

Thanks billions.


Jerry.


Re: Skype Calling Question

Jerry Pryde
 

Thanks billions.

Just curious as I got the subscription via MS Office 365 as a temporary solution to a problem I'm having.

Chances are, I won't use the 60 minutes credit anyway.

Just curious.

Re: Skype Calling Question

Michele Barbi
 

Hi Jerry,
I sincerely do not use Skype credit since much time, it’s been even disabled in my account. I think though that you’ need to specify the country somehow, so if there is not another way such as a combo box for selecting it, you’ll probably have to insert the country code manually.
Bye!
