Re: Making another account

Actually skype is oging to depricate the ksype name on all skypes at some point. . By the way you can check voicemails on skype 8. It’s on the chat window. They are actually sent as media thing s from the phone. I dunno how to do it yet on the mac or windows but I’m drifting off topic here.

I do not like the idea on not able to use a Skype name for making a account, and it makes things harder

That's why I switched back to Skype Classic for checking my voicemail

Re: Skype 8 does not work very well on Windows 7

Sarah k Alawami
 

Yeah they want you to use skype 7 on windows 7 even though it will be deprecated we don’t knwo when.

Hi all,


I have discovered that Skype 8 do not work very well with Windows 7 because it makes things harder for me to check my voicemail on Skype 8. It doesn't very work well with Windows 7, and there ain't any ways to check your voicemail on Skype 8 becuase it is used for Windows 10 users. Skype 7.5.9 works better than the new version of Skype because I can check my voicemail on that one than the newer version of Skype.

Thanks,

Skype 8 and NVDA (was Re: [skypeenglish] Looking for a direct link to Skype eight please)

Doug Lee
 

I saw your question but did not have an answer for it. Someone else asked about Skype 8 and NVDA on this thread and I failed to realize that the new question was placed in your thread. Sorry for the confusion. Subject changed.

I consider the three Windows skypes thus:
- Skype 7, Classic, is the most feature complete but also at some undetermined point destined to go away.
- Skype UWP for Windows 10 is next in line for features, but last I checked, it was not fully feature-complete and could sometimes be sluggish to react to keystrokes. I believe there has been an update to this version that I
have not yet examined though.
- Skype 8 I find to be the fastest to react of them all but also to be the least feature-complete.

Re: Looking for a direct link to Skype eight please

I tried Skype 8, but it did not work out because I was unable to check my voicemail, and I do not have Windows 10, but only Windows 7. I switched back from Skype 8 to Skype 7.5.9, and it makes things easier because I use JAWS as an screenreader

On Skype 8, there ain't any ways to check your voicemails

Hi group is skype 8 ready for primetime using NVDA do any of you know if perhaps there is an add on for skype 8 for NVDA?  Had heard that the skype for windows universal platform wasn’t so hot in the accessibility department and Microsoft accessibility was saying not to download it if you were blind/visually impaired. As this been corrected?
