You call a Skype Out number from a landline, exactly as you would call any other number.

To call a landline number from Skype, using Skype Out, follow these steps:

1. Press Alt f, to open the File menu.
2. Select "New call..." from the menu.
3. Tab to, then select, the Dialpad button.
4. Tab to the Phone Number field, and enter the number you want to call.

Note: you must enter the number in international format. For example +441110000, to dial someone in the UK.

5. Hit Enter to make the call.

Re: skype scripts

Not sure what you're referring to there. My scripts, for all three Skypes, have never had a restriction as to whether you run them on a 32-bit or a 64-bit machine. Scripts in general don't. Many years ago, I had some installer
issues on 64-bit machines, but not anything at all recent.

I also don't know which Skype scripts you mean though. I have scripts for three different Windows Skype versions, but you may not be referring to scripts I wrote at all.

Hey Martin, this sounds a bit strange to me...
Are you trying to download scripts for Skype 8 electron? And when are you prompted about this, while downloading or during actual install process?

Some questions and issues with skype.

terri elliott <terrielliott54@...>
 

I am writing on behalf of a friend who has the latest version of Skype on his window’s 10 computer. Whenever I call him using his Skype phone number there is allot of distortion that I am hearing on my end. If he is using his microphone on his desk where his pc is that is where the distortion is coming from. We have been disconnected from Skype because of all of the distortion that is taking place. If he has his microphone on his coffee table I can’t hear all of the distortion that happens when he is sitting on his desk.

The other thing that I’d like to ask about is this. Yesterday I was listening to some music that he wanted to share with me. It was coming through with no problem. When he wanted me to hear another song later that same day I wasn’t able to hear any audio as previously mentioned. Jaws wasn’t there and neither was the music that he was trying to let me hear. He put his headphones on and I was able to hear Jaws and the music coming through the headphones although it was very low in volume. When he switched it over to his speaker from his headphones Jaws was back and so was the audio music. We are wondering if it his speakers are keeping the audio from coming through or is it something else? Thanks for any help with these Skype issues that I have written you all about.

Re: Which version is which?

Cher
 

Yes, it's 8.33- just could not find out anywhere if that makes it Electron
or WUP. I just now found that under Help/About, if you do an Insert-b, my
JAWS dialog says Chrome Legacy Window-.the only place I've seen Chrome
mentioned anywhere. Steve said that Insert-Q should mention Chrome- but
perhaps this is only if you have installed scripts- because mine does not.
Anyway, the mystery is solved- thanks to all three of you! Sorry it took SO
long!

Ctrl+JAWSKey+V announces a version number if you type it while in Skype. If
it starts with 8, you have the Electron version. If it starts with a
two-digit number like 14 or 16, you have the UWP version. I don't remember
the
current UWP version, but I know it is two digits and the Electron version is
8.

They are functionally the same, but the scripts are different. For Skype UWP, you'll need JAWS scripts from http://www.dlee.org/skype/uwp/. Sorry, I don't know of an NVDA add-on for Skype UWP at this time.
