Re: skype bug

 

Hello Doug,

I'm running a test build of Skype - 8.39.76.181 and the menubar still appears visually if I press ALT. Keyboard commands like Alt+F, Alt+E, Alt+V, etc. still work when Skype is in english.

Quoting an old message below to ask a folow-up question on it...

I no longer find that the Alt+letter commands like Alt+V, Alt+T, etc., work in Skype 8.38. Those corresponded to a menu bar that was supposed to be visible if you pressed Alt.

Does this menu bar still exist in Skype 8.38? I never managed to find it with any tools I tried, though I did not try to get my own visual comfirmation.

   Hello Doug,

   Yes, when I press Alt from within the Skype 8's window, the menubar
   with the menus appears on the top, right below the titlebar of the
   window. I can visually see it appear there.

   Actually, I've now checked and it turns out that the accelerator
   letters are not underlined in the menus even when Skype 8 is in
   english, but the commands like Alt+F, Alt+E, etc. do still work.

all in the application; so I assumed that the Alt+F/E/H etc. hotkeys were simply
 tied directly to functions without there being an associated menubar. When you
say File etc. have no underlined letters though, it again sounds
like you have seen an actual menubar somehow.

   focus does not move to it. I've reported this bug to Microsoft via the

   And by the way, the people using Skype 8 in english are lucky to be
   able to use keyboard commands such as Alt+F, Alt+E, etc. When Skype 8
   is in bulgarian for example, those commands do not work at all. In most
   localized to bulgarian applications, pressing Alt+F (that is the
   equivalent of F for the cyrillic alphabet), opens the "File" menu if
   available. In Skype 8 however, even that does not work. And no surprise
   that it does not - there are no accelerators defined for those menus in
   the bulgarian translation of Skype 8 (there are no letters there
   underlined). The reason for no accelerators may be automated
   translation of those menus - who knows...

Subject: [skypeenglish] Skype 8 JAWS script updates
I made an update to the Skype 8 JAWS scripts recently, but I just
made
another one today. Go to [2]https://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/ for
details and the update itself. Example items included so far:
* Typing indicator sound.
* Quick Settings options for the scripts (JAWSKey+v).
* Support for the checkbox lists seen during the construction of a
group chat. Warning: This works best under JAWS 2019 and may be very
slow and require frequent SayLine commands in older JAWS versions,
for
reasons not fully * understood.
* Possibly better support for loading the scripts under JAWS
versions
older than 2019.
More details are in the Release Notes section of the guide at the
above
URL, as is the download link for the script installer.

Hi everyone,


I downloaded what I thought was the new scripts and installed them and it says Version 86 for me as well. Is there maybe a direct download link for the newest ones?

I compiled revision 73 in english jaws 18. on the virtual machine.
Launched on the host in Russian jaws 18.
Everything worked fine and all characters were readable.
Apparently the problem is something else.
Sorry for the line in Russian at the end of the previous letter, it was a message from Jaws virtual viewer, I just forgot to delete it.

I will check it.
I will try to build the old version of the script in English JAWS.

Re: Scripts translation (unreadble symbols)

Not sure what you're suggesting. JAWS saves the jsb file; I don't have a way to tell JAWS what encoding to use for a jsb file. I took the jsm file directly from Dropbox without any changes, so that file would be in whatever
encoding you used to save it.

If I actually have to have a Russian JAWS to build the jsb file, we have a problem lol

I am not a moderator here, and some of your points are valid if you take the barbs out of them; but Lino, do you really have to throw hammers and/or insults like "Mikey," "suck it up," etc. to make valid points? Not a mod here,
no; but I think the list would do better with a less caustic tone.

As for Skype 7's lifespan, I actually wonder if 7.37 will last a while. I am using 8 exclusively on Windows, but my Mac still runs a Skype 7 version and even runs Clisk, which I use to track events until that ability dies. My
personal opinion is that learning Skype 8 is an extremely good idea now, we've said that loudly enough already in here to make the walls of subterranean chambers crack and crumble from the noise, and what each person does after
that is their own business.

   Well I'm glad to see that there are at least some people on this list
   who actually appreciate my assistance. For the rest of you who feel
   that the old versions are gone, and that we should just put up with
   overly complicated software, you need to understand that not everyone
   is a quick study like you are. Learning new things can be difficult for
   some of us and we can't all just dive head first into things like the
   rest of you can. Especially when it comes to software with
   accessability issues. The scripts are there to help yes, and that's
   great, but the scripts can only go so far. It's not that we don't want
   to learn something new, it's just that there are times when things get
   really difficult, sometimes there's nothing else you can do but revert
   back to a prior version for the sake of accessability. We as blind
   people aren't the only ones who were affected negativly by skype 8. Our
   sighted counterparts have difficulty with it too. Finally, for those
   who have installed 7.36, once installed, be sure to go into the options
   menu, and turn off the automatic updates option. If you aren't
   familliar with this option, you can get there by doing the following.

   1.       Log into skype and go to tools menu

   2.       Select options

   3.       Arrow down to where it says, "automatic updates" then tab once
   to get to the button marked turn off automatic updates. Press spacebar
   on this button to turn it off.

   4.       Then tab to save and press spacebar and you'll be all set.

   I appologize for the long post, but I felt that I had to come forward
   and speak my peace and to say that I'm glad that Jerry, Mario and
   others have found my suggestion helpful. Yes, version 7.36 may be old,
   but it's a work around for now and I too am glad that it works for us.
   Have a nice day everyone.

   Sincerely,

   Mike

   It's a good temporary measure until I can get the upgrades; just enough

   That's really all it is for me.  I still get the notice that an update
   is available.  For now, I click on the Not Now option.

   It's just a helpful bridge to the new version, making things almost

Re: an atempt to help my fellow skype users

I am not a moderator here, and some of your points are valid if you take the barbs out of them; but Lino, do you really have to throw hammers and/or insults like "Mikey," "suck it up," etc. to make valid points? Not a mod here,
no; but I think the list would do better with a less caustic tone.

As for Skype 7's lifespan, I actually wonder if 7.37 will last a while. I am using 8 exclusively on Windows, but my Mac still runs a Skype 7 version and even runs Clisk, which I use to track events until that ability dies. My
personal opinion is that learning Skype 8 is an extremely good idea now, we've said that loudly enough already in here to make the walls of subterranean chambers crack and crumble from the noise, and what each person does after
that is their own business.

Skype 8. Have fun Mikey.

Well I'm glad to see that there are at least some people on this list
who actually appreciate my assistance. For the rest of you who feel
that the old versions are gone, and that we should just put up with
overly complicated software, you need to understand that not everyone
is a quick study like you are. Learning new things can be difficult for
some of us and we can't all just dive head first into things like the
rest of you can. Especially when it comes to software with
accessability issues. The scripts are there to help yes, and that's
great, but the scripts can only go so far. It's not that we don't want
to learn something new, it's just that there are times when things get
really difficult, sometimes there's nothing else you can do but revert
back to a prior version for the sake of accessability. We as blind
people aren't the only ones who were affected negativly by skype 8. Our
sighted counterparts have difficulty with it too. Finally, for those
who have installed 7.36, once installed, be sure to go into the options
menu, and turn off the automatic updates option. If you aren't
familliar with this option, you can get there by doing the following.

1. Log into skype and go to tools menu

2. Select options

3. Arrow down to where it says, "automatic updates" then tab once
to get to the button marked turn off automatic updates. Press spacebar
on this button to turn it off.

4. Then tab to save and press spacebar and you'll be all set.

I appologize for the long post, but I felt that I had to come forward
and speak my peace and to say that I'm glad that Jerry, Mario and
others have found my suggestion helpful. Yes, version 7.36 may be old,
but it's a work around for now and I too am glad that it works for us.
Have a nice day everyone.

Sincerely,

Mike

It's a good temporary measure until I can get the upgrades; just enough
to keep things going normally until then.

That's really all it is for me. I still get the notice that an update
is available. For now, I click on the Not Now option.

It's just a helpful bridge to the new version, making things almost
seamless.

Mike your message is pointless sir. If people installed this it
won't work and will be asked to install Skype 8. So suck it up
buttercup and embrace the new Skype. I did and others have without
any problems.

Hi guys,

For those of us who are just itching to revert back to a version of
skype that we can use in a mannor that we're used to, here's a link to
skype_7.36.0.101:
