The following comes from the beta group I'm in. I'm forwarding this to you guys in case any of you all are on hotmail and have not received any messages since about maybe 12 am east today. The message will be locked. So no replies are welcome. This is just to let yall know what's up.

Thanks all and have a happy Sunday.

Hi All,
 
Microsoft has been not accepting email from us since early this morning. They claim some sort of spam issue. We're registered with their FBL system, and I went to check the reputation of our service. They say there was an issue with an IP address that I had registered with them but have never used to send any email. So I'm guessing it's some kind of mistake. I removed that IP address from their system and sent an email to them about it. 
 
As of now, we're still blocked. Assuming we're unblocked in the next day or two, all the queued up email will be delivered. From some things I've read, it appears that they do bulk processing once a day, around midnight. So maybe we have to wait until then to get this fixed.

There are now three Skypes for Windows, one for Mac, and one for iOS. I'll
focus on Windows because I think that's what you're asking about. To my
knowledge, the only one with a startup sound is Skype 7. How you add and
remove contacts is a bit different depending on which Skype you use. Below I
will describe the three Skypes and present the available JAWS and NVDA
alternatives of which I am aware. I don't know about Supernova support for
these.

1. Skype 7, also called Skype Classic, is what you're used to. That is still
available and was updated a month or two ago but will eventually go away. We
don't have a timetable for that yet. The download link for that version is
http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full
My scripts at http://www.dlee.org/skype/ still work with this version, and
NVDA includes built-in code to handle it. There is also new work being done
on a specific Skype 7 addon for NVDA as of this week, though that work is in
an early state I'd say.

2. Skype 8, which is an Electron app (that's a development platform that
looks somewhat webpage-like to us users), is a newer Skype intended for
Windows versions older than Windows 10. I have initial scripts for it at
http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/ and a simple NVDA addon for it at
http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/skype.nvda-addon
It is possible, though a bit tricky, to run this version on Windows 10 as
well, by forcing it to run in compatibility mode for Windows 8. The next
Skype though is meant for Windows 10.
I have a vague sense that Skype 8 will not live long, though I currently
find it to be the fastest version of the three and so I use it myself.

3. Skype UWP, also called Skype for Windows 10, comes from the Microsoft
Store and is intended exclusively for Windows 10. I have JAWS scripts for
this one at http://www.dlee.org/skype/uwp/ Joseph Lee's Windows 10 App
Essentials NVDA addon supports this version of Skype well enough that I did
not find it necessary to write an addon for it myself.

Re: help with latest skype and an introduction

Hi Doug

I think I am using the version of skype 8 installed by ninite.com, it is
relatively accessible, managed to use it to make a phone call on it to my
mother in France. I can't see a way though to delete old and obsolete
contacts. Somebody sent me a download for skype 7 which I will hold on to
but will try and learn this skype. I also tried the skype in the app section
of windows 10, this seemed more accessible and I was able to do more with
it. As I am coping ok sort of, I am not going to go backwards for now not if
skype classic will dissappear eventually. Hopefully microsoft will sort out
any accessible problems.

Re: help with latest skype and an introduction

There are now three Skypes for Windows, one for Mac, and one for iOS. I'll focus on Windows because I think that's what you're asking about. To my knowledge, the only one with a startup sound is Skype 7. How you add and remove
contacts is a bit different depending on which Skype you use. Below I will describe the three Skypes and present the available JAWS and NVDA alternatives of which I am aware. I don't know about Supernova support for these.

1. Skype 7, also called Skype Classic, is what you're used to. That is still available and was updated a month or two ago but will eventually go away. We don't have a timetable for that yet. The download link for that version is
http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full
My scripts at http://www.dlee.org/skype/ still work with this version, and NVDA includes built-in code to handle it. There is also new work being done on a specific Skype 7 addon for NVDA as of this week, though that work is in
an early state I'd say.

2. Skype 8, which is an Electron app (that's a development platform that looks somewhat webpage-like to us users), is a newer Skype intended for Windows versions older than Windows 10. I have initial scripts for it at
http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/ and a simple NVDA addon for it at http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/skype.nvda-addon
It is possible, though a bit tricky, to run this version on Windows 10 as well, by forcing it to run in compatibility mode for Windows 8. The next Skype though is meant for Windows 10.
I have a vague sense that Skype 8 will not live long, though I currently find it to be the fastest version of the three and so I use it myself.

3. Skype UWP, also called Skype for Windows 10, comes from the Microsoft Store and is intended exclusively for Windows 10. I have JAWS scripts for this one at http://www.dlee.org/skype/uwp/
Joseph Lee's Windows 10 App Essentials NVDA addon supports this version of Skype well enough that I did not find it necessary to write an addon for it myself.

Hi

 

It is a very long time since I posted on the skype group some 2 or 3 years. However, My name is Adrien, I live in the uk. I like skype but they have really changed it now.

 

I have a couple of questions.

 

On the new skype there is no start up sound, has this gone completely or is there a way to get it back?

 

I used to use skyp as my phone and have loads of saved contacts, for that I used skype talking but I assume that no longer works. In the latest skype How can I edit or delete a contact? I am having to use skype as my phone again as I need to use it to ring abroad now.

 

Finally, I use nvda, Jfw and super nova. Which is the best screen reader for using with skype?

 

Ok now doubt with the new skype being so complex I’ll have more questions so good to be back with you guys.

I also tried to go back to the classic version of Skype, but it did not
work out except I have to go back to the current version that I am using
right now. The thing that I did not like is that I can't access my
voicemail on this one.

Haven't figure out how to access my voicemail yet

I am so glad I could help get the Skype Windows 10 app key commands out there, and you were able to find the entire web site.
