Re: How to prevent Skype from gaining automatic focus when a message comes in

Amy Ruell <aruell@...>
 

Hi,


A real conundrum. I have to check messages as they come in every minute to 90 seconds. I authorize psychiatric emergency admission and I am a supervisor on the team. The problem is, people often use the I am to chat about unnecessary things and there are far too many messages.

Hello Amy,

With that setting, messages will still come in witout alerting you. You need to manually check messages. 

Before invoking that feature, I think you need to ask yourself a few questions. How frequent do alerts pop up? How disruptive are alerts? How important are incoming messages? Nice to know, must know or immediate action required? How disciplined are you to check message at a regular interval?

Pardon the novice question, I am very new to this program. If I shut off alerts, how will I know when a message comes in? I can’t ignore the messages, I just don’t want them to interrupt my other work and want to have control over when I view them.
Thank you
Amy

I use Skype for Business at work. As far as I can remember, you can shut off alerts:

1. Settings

3. Generl Alerts
4. Select “Don’t show alerts”

How to prevent Skype from gaining automatic focus when a message comes in

Amy Ruell <aruell@...>
 

Hello all,
I am new to Skype for business. When a message comes in from a group that I must monitor, Jaws automatically focuses on that window, interrupting anywork I am trying to get done.
Is there a setting I can change so this will not happen?
Thanks.

Hello All,
I recently asked a sighted friend to find Skype Electron for me at the MS website.
They couldn't seem to locate it under that name so they downloaded the Desktop version.
This is what came to me:  Skype-8.34.0.78.exe
Is this the correct version I need to put onto a new machine running Windows 10 and Jaws 2019?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

JAWS 2019 should have Skype 8 scripts installed by default. However, if you want to install the JAWS scripts for Skype Electron by Doug Lee, here it's the direct link: http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/jfw_skypeelectron.exe

The hotkeys you asked should be Skype native commands, these are as follows if my memory does not go wrong:

  • ctrl+shift+p starts an audio call, not sure if it also works for answering;
  • ctrl+e ends the current call;
  • ctrl+shift+s is used for searching people.

Checked on the lay of the land re tickets this a.m.. We would fly from here to Newark to Zurich- and sounds like a good direct flight and the usual expected schedule. It’s about  a month early to make the reservation; would require more miles now than if we wait a bit.

 

We each get one checked 50 pounder- a second would cost $100. I’m guessing we could manage with just one of the checked pieces- but doubt if you could count on having most or all of the second one. I haven’t figured out if I should try to get by without the bed wedge or not. I will already be looking to steal more pillows- I’m guessing ;)

 

Would you like for us to fly home on the 15th so we could be state-side if any need arose for any reason?

 

Started wondering if Brendan would have to fly back to FL from Zambia for debriefing after the mission is completed?

 

Just realized we might already be late sending Brianna’s card. Should get on its way this afternoon.

The kiddos will have a new cash of money from us – in Switz if they want it there to try any of the entertainment options at Interlaken or elsewhere. It might be helpful if they check them out over the school break so we can plan to include these.

down and dirty basics with 8.3

Steve Gladstone
 

Hi y’all,

 

I’m using Windows 10 and JAWS 2019 and need some basic survival tips for using Skype 8.3:

  1. Can someone please provide me with the link to the latest D.L. scripts for Windows 10 and JAWS 2019 users
  2. I need the simplest and most direct strokes for:
  • Answering and hanging up
  • Finding a specific contact in my list of 97 contacts
  • Adding a new contact to my contact list

 

Greatly appreciate the help.

Steve

 


weighing in on Skype 8.3 with Win 10 and JAWS 2019

For those of you using 8.3 with Windows 10 and JAWS 2019, which scripts do you prefer: JAWS scripts or Doug L’s scripts?

Thx

 


Re: Adding contacts and receiving requests in Skype 8

Michele Barbi
 

Thank you very much Doug, really appreciated. I think though that it's a bit difficult to realize it came, especially if you received it while you were offline, since sometimes I needed to check out the conversations list when I sign in in order to see that some chat came out.
Bye!

Re: Adding contacts and receiving requests in Skype 8

Doug Lee
 

I haven't tried to add a contact from within a conference. As for incoming contact request notifications though: They show up simply as chat lines, and raise the new contact to the top of the Conversations list just like any
other chat message does. When you open the chat, the request has an Accept button and a Block button that are in the tab order.

I don't put too much effort, and I don't consider them negative. I just compared 2 products, one that I like and another one that I don't like. That's all.

It wouldn't be helpful at all to contact the developers, because they care about productivity and profit, and developing a web interface is much more productive than developing a native GUI, plus that the main target is the sighted users.

100% more effort and time? Really?

 

How much effort and time do you put in to composing the emails you do finding every negative thing you can? that's wasted energy and effort that would have been better spent on learning something, or better yet, composing missives to the developers and entering in to civil discourse with them so you can see the improvements you'd like taking place.

I'm also tired to explain you that not all the people have the same needs from the same applications, because it seems that it is hard for you to understand.

 

Pressing 2 keys instead of one takes 100% more effort and time, so yes, is not OK for everybody.

If something is not perfect, we should accept it as is, but we should also agree that is not perfect and don't pretend that it is perfect and we should tell only good things about it.

 

If you say that you are so tired, then I'd have a recommendation for you... instead of telling me to shut up, just because I don't have the same preferences as yours. Why don't you shut up instead if it is so hard for you to understand?

again, this is where your quick nav keys for web interaction come in to play. because you simply press e to enter your edit field, and you're there. then tap your space bar to go in to forms or brows mode, depending on your screenreader, then you can type away.

It really is not rocket science, and I'm really getting tired of you knit picking every single thing you can and finding every single reason you can to decry not only skype, but the tireless work both developers and end-users have done to get it where it is today. I'm sorry, but either put up, or shut up.

Yes, that's true. In some cases it might be faster to navigate in the web interface, but the problem I see is that the web interface is not standard, and anytime can appear something new in that interface, advertising, a link there, a button elsewhere, so we can't memorize that we need to press tab twice and then enter and then do this fast without waiting for screen reader to speak. I prefer the interfaces that never change depending on context. For sighted it is not a problem because they can see the entire window, they can see the context very fast.

I don't mind the web inerface, in fact, I find myself navigating a lot faster in the web interface than the older interface but thats just me.

Any improvement is good, but these are small improvements while bigger issues will never be solved.

 

The biggest issue: Skype 8 uses a web interface.

This issue might be worked around if the scripts will turn the virtual buffer off automaticly and it will use only the PC cursor, and of course, if this way Skype will be fully accessible this way.

 

The best news is that for the moment Skype 7 still works. Too bad that it will probably stop working soon.
