Re: Cortana

Mike DeZinno
 

Good evening all,
I moved into Windows 10 about 6 months ago and that's when I first experienced Cortana.
I found it to be extremely  annoying the way it kept popping up during everything I tried to do, and how it kept pulling Jaws focus away from what I was working on.
The reason I mention this is because if it's now going to become a component of Skype I don't see this as good news.
It's very pernicious as it seems to go into and take over all functions of Windows 10 almost like it was a virus.
If more people in this community find that it's going to be a problem with us using Skype  maybe we can open a discussion on how to disable it.
On the other hand if we find in time that it helps us use Skype better then that information would also be of value to share.

Thanks to all of you who work so hard to figure out these kind of issues.

It appears on my version of skype 8.44.0.40, and in the search list at the start menu.

There's an option that says "talk to cortana."

I'm thinkin it's  similar to Alexa.

I'm a new windows 10 user. lol

Hello Jerry,

I'm thinkin it's  similar to Alexa.
Well, sort of. It's a voice assistant from Microsoft, but
unfortunately far not so good as Google's or Amazon's assistants.

Sounds like somehow you have a skype.jkm remaining in your JAWS user folder. To find it, go to Start, All Programs or whatever your Windows version calls it, your JAWS version, Explore JAWS, Explore My Settings. There may be a
quicker way to get there, but make sure it's "Explore My Settings" for your active JAWS version. If you find skype.jkm there, rename, back up, or delete it and try your Alt+1 in Skype again.

Re: Cortana

Hello, actually I did not realize there was this possibility through Skype, I don't know if it's because I use a wireless headset and my Windows machine is a desktop one so no built-in mic.
Anyway yes it's a voice assistant like Alexa or Siri by Apple. You can call it also by pressing windows+c.
Thinking it good, since it's a Microsoft product and Skype has been bought by MS since some years it's not so strange...

Hello to all,
I recently figured out throug Ninite that Skype 8.44 is now out of beta. I recommend you to install this upgrade especially if you aren't able for some reason to install revision 813 of the Skype scripts, because I just sent a chat using NVDA and figured out that the "message sent" label is now correctly vocalized, at least in Italian.

Shortcuts to answer and disconnect cals in skype 8.42 and later

Jacob
 

Taken from the Whats New in latest JAWS 2019 release:

Easy Access to Answer or Disconnect From a Skype Call Using the Desktop Application Version 8.42 or Higher

In Skype for Desktop 8.42 and later, JAWS or Fusion now provides keystrokes for answering or disconnecting a call from any application as well as moving
focus into the Skype main window. Note that these keystrokes are only available in the Skype for Desktop application. They will not work in the Skype for
Windows 10 universal app from the Microsoft store or the Skype for Business app.

To answer an incoming call, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, y followed by UP ARROW. To disconnect from a call, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, y followed by DOWN ARROW.
To move focus directly into the Skype window, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, Y followed by S.

Re: Updating the Command Key

Doug Lee
 

Thanks for the help Jacob. :-)

For anyone curious, the reason it's no longer in the same place, is that "the same place" isn't the same anymore. :-)

The Insert+V, or JAWSKey+V command, used to bring up the JAWS Verbosity dialog, then the JAWS Options tree, and finally now the Quick Settings dialog. I managed to get the code for changing the Command key to work in the first
two of those, but Quick Settings is quite different and did not seem friendly to that sort of modification.

Re: Turn off typing sound in skype 8.xx

I'm using the english version of JAWS 18. Don't know if it can berelated to the fact that I'm using danish Windows 10? I both try english and danish in the Skype settings. I remember back in Skype Classic that some parts of the scripts doesn't work if Skype was set to danish. But in this case with Skype 8 it doesn't matter. OK I'll try to edit the file. Thank you.

It sounds like the Danish translation of the scripts has an issue with the qs or qsm files. If you have the same experience in English JAWS though, I' not sure what's going on because no one has reported this problem and I
don't have it here.

switch Skype to english but it doesn't help. I also try to look for the
