Hello,

I've just installed Skype 8.55.0.141 on a Windows 10 machine with a
fresh install of Jaws 2020, and version 137 of the Jaws scripts, and I
can no longer get the control 1 shortcut to work. Instead I have to tab
around to find the back button.

I've tried reinstalling both Skype and the Jaws scripts but it hasn't
helped. I've restarted both my laptop and Jaws each time, but that
hasn't worked either.

Help welcome. Thanks

Re: Chat Sounder

Actually, it does say Typing.

It's just that, if I'm working in another window, the message indicater doesn't seem to sound in split mode.

Ok, let me integrate what Doug already said...

One more thing that does not work in split view is Skype native typing announcement, meaning that JAWS won't say that your contact is currently typing. If you want to hear these announcements in split view, you'll have to check JAWS' proper typing announcement, and you do that by pressing JAWSKey+v from within Skype in order to open the quick settings, and check the "typing announce" option.

Skype 8.55.0.141 with script revision 137.

The typing sound works in single view, and the indescribable sound as well when a message comes in.

Jaws 2020.

A few clarifications:

Which Skype version and version number? Skype Desktop and Skype UWP are the versions, and Desktop versions start with 8 whereas UWP versions start with 14.

If you're using JAWS, what is the script revision number spoken when you type Insert+q in the Skype window?

Do you mean the clicking typing sound, or the "Message sent" announcements when you send a message, or something else?

Answers for various cases:

In Skype Desktop, the typing clicks should work in both regular and split views, but "Message sent" etc. do not speak in split view because of how that announcement is implemented by Skype itself. If your JAWS scripts are too
old, typing sounds might not work in split view.

In Skype UWP, typing sounds are not working at this time due to major changes in the display since I wrote the scripts; and "Message sent" etc. are not supported by Skype itself as far as I know.

Well I personally don't have Skype mail contacts right now, I am afraid I lost them, or possibly I had old ones.

Can you contact skype and see if she can get her email changed to a new one? Or something/ I dunno whawt else to offer here. Skype seems to not be offering sms verification, that email works but it is so 2007 lol!

Hi,

I have a problem with a friend of mine where she is not able to sign in to Skype. During a Tandem session I figured out Skype is asking her for a code, but I realized on delay that Skype has got a mail which probably she does no longer use. I did not see an option, say, for using sms. At this point, do we need to create a new Skype account?

Group Guidelines #guidelines

main@skypeenglish.groups.io Group Moderators <main@...>
 

Hello all. It's that time again, where a reminder is sent out  once a month regarding the rules so here they are.
 
Hello to all.  Hear is this month's reminder of the Skype English rules. taken right from the welcome message
 
Hello and welcome to the Skype English list. Here our goal is to have fun discussing various things related to skype and the screen 
readers such as jaws and others.  Remember the following:
 
1. flaming of any kind, virus warnings, spam, or anything off topic will not be tolerated.
 
2. Posting in HTML is aloud, but no links will work. The message will hopefully be converted to plain text. Let me know if you see 
any attachments. i doubt you will.
 
3. Absolutely no attachments are aloud on this list. Security comes first and this will minimize the chance of viruses spreading.
 
4. Keep all intro threads to at least 3  or 4 messages before the thread is taken off list. That way we don't drift off topic. I 
know this is going to be hard for most of us including this mod here but if we keep the  messages on topic the archives will look 
a lot cleaner and people will be able to find info on what they need.
 
5. speaking of clean archives absolutely no discussion of anything other than Skype and its use with screen readers will be tolerated on this list.  If the admin notices any other topics such as google talk on this list they will close the thread immediately. I hate to do this but this is to keep the archives easier to find for old members as well as new ones.
6. When you first join this list it's normally customary to send out an intro message.  Since this list is growing by leaps and bounds this will cease and desist.  The new comer will now  if they want to send out a question regarding the scripts, skype, gw connect, anything that this list covers. any "hello" messages and "I'm new. here is my info" messages will no longer be tolerated.  We want to keep the searchable archives at the mail archive as clean as possible.
 
7. Before you post your question(s) to the list,  please search the group archives or do a google search. This prevents the cycle of repeated messages. It also teaches you the user to search before asking for help. Oly when you have exhausted yoru resources should you come to this list. We get a lot of messages, so the archives are full of stuff dating back to at least 2005.
 
. Have  fun and happy skyping.
 
 
Failure to abide by any of these rules, especially the last one, will get you 3 strikes then the member is band from said list.
Take care all.

Skype 8.55, another bug found

Michele Barbi
 

Hi to all, I am using Skype 8.55 as in subject, and I found out another bug. Don't know if Doug can fix it via scripting, anyway the point is as follows. When you disconnect to your account, in the window that pops up after pressing Yes, the button which used to be "Sign in with another account" is no longer labeled correctly, it just says button. Beware though that I use Skype in Italian, and I am still with JAWS 2019.0.1906, I did not manage to upgrade to 2020 for now.

Bye!

Re: ringtones

Michele Barbi
 

Guys I have to confirm what our dearest mod already said, and what I personally believed, since I searched on Google. Basically Skype 8 electron and Skype 14 for Windows 10 don't let you change ringtones, like any notification sounds, at least till now. The post I read was referring to Skype 8.34, but I think nothing changed in most recent times.

Bye!
