Microphone volume on voice messages using Skype for iPad

Michele Barbi
 

Hi guys, I am encountering a bizarre issue with a friend of mine. She's using Skype for iPad, I can hear her well when she calls me, but when she sends me voice messages her volume is very low. I sincerely don't understand what can be the problem here, can someone help please?

Bye!

Re: having trouble with search feature

Smiling?
 

Being a JAWS user, I just use the keystroke Control+Shift+S to open up the search field.

 

Type whatever it is that I am interested in searching for (which JAWS will tell you the number of results found) and then just tab down to the results which you then just arrow to each.

Hi skype users ken here.  Last night was trying to search for someone by phone number and skype said One item found.  A little baffling because I couldn’t see where it was.  I kept going round and round with people, all, and other stuff but couldn’t find whether I tabbed or arrowed if there was a match to my search.  I was trying it with our radio station and had the same problem I wanted to make sure I got the updated result and couldn’t tell one from the other.  Any thoughts on what I’m doing wrong.

Hi Ken,

since some time I don't add people, so I don't know if with latest Skype 8.59 it begann a bit buggy...

Anyway, I am afraid that when it gives only one result there's only a button which lets you invite your friends to use Skype, so chances are your friend did not make a Skype account using only his/her cellphone number, and/or he did not put the number in the profile.

Bye!

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.

Re: round and round I go on skype can anyone help

I saw something that says hint but down arrowing didn’t seem to work let me try it again.  The only place anything happens when I down arrow is select people, groups and messages.  There’s nothing to even indicate that there is a find. I’m completely stumpped.

a question regarding skype and teams

Sarah k Alawami
 

Some of my students have switched to teams due to company policy, their company not the one I work for. They are not aloud to use personal skype on their systems to make personal accounts, which puts me in an odd situation.

I'm expected to stay in touch with these students, which I can via voice, (I have no idea how teams and skype can still talk via voice) but I cannot communicate with them via chat. They don't see any of my messages and I don't see any of theirs. So is there a way to make this work with those restrictions, that being:

  1. No personal skype on the system
  2. No business skype on the system
  3. No personal skype accounts aloud, just teams.
  4. I must use skype and not teams

Or am I kind of SOL?

From A frustrated worker!

Blessings and happy Sunday

Yes, Skype UWP is the one for Windows 10 from the Store; there are reports saying it'll go shortly but at the moment there's no clear evidence of this.

Re: problems with version 8.59

So, let me get this straight, in order for me to get Skype and say JAWS and or NVDA working again with Skype, I have to continually do this uninstall/reinstall process until it works? I have two laptops by HP that I may have to do this process on. Sounds like a hard workaround though.
I do notice that there are two flavors of the JAWS scripts on Doug's site, the one I have is for desktop labeled electron which may be 8.59 I think, and the other peeks my curiosity, think it's the UPW version. Never heard of this one. Is that for the windows 10 app from the app store?

Re: problems with version 8.59

Well I only have one login credential set and it shows that I actually am logged in correctly it’s just not talking to me it says if my screen readers crash therefore I have been now using Skype for iPhone instead if I want to do Skype calls or chats until this gets fixed. And just so you guys know my thing auto updated before I could stop it. Before I was running I think version seven or 8.2 or something It was before 8.5 I know that for sure. And unfortunately I don’t have the executable to reinstall that version.

About incorrect sign ins instead, I sometimes had these kinds of issues, latest one I think it was yesterday or sunday night. I do my radio program Rock the weekend on a dominican webradio, and so when I am onair saturday and sunday night I sign in to the radio account, and then I'll go again in my personal one after program. Doing this, I sometimes write password incorrectly without realizing, so I cannot see contacts online; when I quit and restart Skype though, I foind the window with a button that says, for instance, "Sign in as Radio espacial", like it happened latest time. If I already did program and should go back to my personal account, I then use the "Sign in with another account" button and put my login data.

I’m logged in successfully however it is still unresponsive. No matter what I do even the virtual cursor and jaws cursor aren’t responsive. It’s like JAWS locked up when starting skype no matter what I do, so I end up bringing up task manager close the app, still no go. :-(
