Re: ending a call

 

Hello,

Try Control+Shift+H.

But isn't Control+Shift+H introduced in the beta/preview version of Skype, which is 8.65? I think Control+E still works in v8.64. Which version are you using?

I think you're asking about the same issue: The ChromeLegacyWindow announcement occurs when Skype has been minimized.

This update includes the same sort of automatic fix that I put in the scripts for Microsoft Teams a few months ago. When Skype decides to act evasive and throw the ChromeLegacyWindow announcement at you, the scripts should
catch it, interrupt it, announce "Fixing window structure," and promptly fix the window to work normally. This should hold until Microsoft fixes Skype itself, as I expect they will just as they did for Teams.

Ah, "rumor" is what I called it because I only heard one report and not from a Skype author; no disrespect meant.

In any case, see my next announcement; there is now a solution in place for JAWS users...

Frequently discussed in various places nowadays, and it's a change in
Skype 8.63 and is not due to Windows 10 2004. The workarounds are to
tap Alt twice, tap Alt and then Esc, or use Windows+DownArrow followed
by

Windows+UpArrow whenever this happens. Microsoft Teams suffered a
similar misfortune within the last few months. That one was fixed
within Teams itself, and I expect the same will happen to Skype;
however, rumor has it that

this issue is not fixed in the beta of Skype 8.64. Because of this, I
recently urged participants of this group to send feedback to Microsoft
about it, via the "Report a Problem" option within the Skype app's Help
menu.

Re: problem with jaws 2020 and skype 8.63

Doug Lee
 

On hearing this morning that Skype 8.64, apparently in beta, also exhibits this issue, I filed the following comment for Microsoft via the "Report a Problem" item in the Skype Help menu; and I invite others to remark
similarly from their own Skype instances, so that Microsoft hears a chorus of voices and not just one:

Skype 8.63 and apparently the beta 8.64: After a call and after the Skype window is minimized, focusing it while running a screen reader such as JAWS does not work well. We hear "Chrome Legacy Window" and cannot navigate or
read. Tapping Alt twice, or Alt then Esc, or Windows+Down then Windows+Up revives the Skype window for use. See also a similar problem that appeared and was fixed in Teams 1.3 within the last few months. This is a serious
disruption for blind Skype users.

not only do I get the chrome legacy repeat message, even though i'm
running IE,skype commands do not work at all until I press the alt

minutes I have to press the alt key again.

Has anyone reported this to skype and the screen reader makers if at all possible. Where is the problem exactly, or is this the case of both?

Hi guys, I just tested the alt functionality that Stephen suggested in

order to fix the problems with Skype. Basically it works just fine,

beware though that you'll open the menu bar, so you should press it once

again or esc to close it and go back to the Skype main window.
