Microsoft is Killing Skype Classic on September 1-

The matter of fact is that there is no possibility of more than one chat at the same time in Skype 8 therefore we cannot do anything!

I’m very sorry to let you know that I was forced to update Skype 8.25!

I understood that Skype 8 doesn't offer the possibility of opening separate

windows for separate chats. How can we solve this problem?

OK, but then how it can be considered OK, or even acceptable?
We might accept this limitation and not start chatting with more than one person concomitently, but other people might start chatting us.
What can we do in that case? Can we distinguish somehow the source of chat messages? Can we decide to whom we want to type to if this thing happends?
 
The very bad policy of forcing us to use another worse application doesn't make me have the courage of trying Skype 8, see if I like it, and if not, return to Skype 7 at least for the next one month and a half, because I'm afraid that this might be impossible and I might need to start using the worse solution right now.

It  works and works well. You only chat with one person at once anyway, and you do’t want too many resources to be taken up, so take it, or uninstall skype and never use it.


I use skype 8 every day for my jobs and don’t mind that it is only 1 chat, it always has ben one chat and always will be one chat.

Sarah,
 
I kindly remember you that your needs and preferences are not the need or preferences of all computer users.
If you are happy with the limited features offered by the new version of Skype is OK, but it might not be OK for other users.
 
If you consider Mac as beeing the best OS, then this means that it is the best OS for you, not for everybody. Other people may be forced to use another operating system because there are some applications they need to use which don't exist for Mac, or are not accessible etc.

Actually I’m also using the windows versio of skype, the updated one  that came wiht my machien and navigating it with out the scrits is way way easy. It acts just like skype on the mac where you no longer have the chats in separate windows. I’v eactually alwasy wanted that to be gone as I cannot multi task. Go to anchor.fm/ke7zum and  check out my demo on the new skype for windows   10 I might even put it up on my mix cloud as well. I got the hang of it after maybe about 5 minutes. It is not that bad really. And I’m using no addons for nvda as far as I know to access the new features. The keyboard shortcuts even work fine.

Only chat with one person at a time? That's a foreign idea to me. I often have several chats going.

It's great if the hotkeys are working fine, but I still can't understand why you consider it better. If the previous version of Skype offers the possibility of multiple chat windows but you can't use them for whatever reasons, nobody forces you to use multiple chat windows, so from your perspective it shouldn't matter.
On the other hand, if other users want to use multiple chat windows, this is possible in Skype Classic, but not possible in Skype 8 from what I understood, so the new version has a big disadvantage for them.

The thing is about the new version of Skype, you can't check your voicemail than the Skype Classic, you can check your voicemail on Skype Classic

On the other hand, if other users want to use multiple chat windows, this is possible in Skype Classic, but not possible in Skype 8 from what I understood, so the new version has a big disadvantage for them.

Actually I’m also using the windows versio of skype, the updated one  that came wiht my machien and navigating it with out the scrits is way way easy. It acts just like skype on the mac where you no longer have the chats in separate windows. I’v eactually alwasy wanted that to be gone as I cannot multi task. Go to anchor.fm/ke7zum and  check out my demo on the new skype for windows   10 I might even put it up on my mix cloud as well. I got the hang of it after maybe about 5 minutes. It is not that bad really. And I’m using no addons for nvda as far as I know to access the new features. The keyboard shortcuts even work fine.

I kindly remember you that your needs and preferences are not the need or preferences of all computer users.
If you are happy with the limited features offered by the new version of Skype is OK, but it might not be OK for other users.
 
If you consider Mac as beeing the best OS, then this means that it is the best OS for you, not for everybody. Other people may be forced to use another operating system because there are some applications they need to use which don't exist for Mac, or are not accessible etc.

It  works and works well. You only chat with one person at once anyway, and you do’t want too many resources to be taken up, so take it, or uninstall skype and never use it.


I use skype 8 every day for my jobs and don’t mind that it is only 1 chat, it always has ben one chat and always will be one chat.

Can’t is a 4 letter dirty word. Has anyone else tried to check their voicemail with Skype 8.2? If so how do you do it and if you can please spell it out in more detail.

Clarification: All Skype versions allow multiple simultaneous chats, but only Skype Classic allows chats to appear in separate windows. In Skype classic's default view and in all other Skype clients for Windows, you switch
among chats by choosing different conversations in the conversation list. I was doing that in Skype Classic for years already and have not used separate windows in a very long time, so admittedly I'm quite used to this.

Hi there,

Thanks for all the answers. Concerning Skype electron, Can I ask, how can we
quickly read chat messages, or at least focus to the list of chat messages
in a conversation window? Is there a workaround for that? Using NVDA?

Regards!

The thing is about the new version of Skype, you can't check your voicemail than the Skype Classic, you can check your voicemail on Skype Classic

Actually I’m also using the windows versio of skype, the updated one  that came wiht my machien and navigating it with out the scrits is way way easy.

It  works and works well. You only chat with one person at once anyway, and you do’t want too many resources to be taken up, so take it, or uninstall skype and never use it.


I use skype 8 every day for my jobs and don’t mind that it is only 1 chat, it always has ben one chat and always will be one chat.

Clarification: All Skype versions allow multiple simultaneous chats, but
only Skype Classic allows chats to appear in separate windows. In Skype
classic's default view and in all other Skype clients for Windows, you
switch among chats by choosing different conversations in the conversation
list. I was doing that in Skype Classic for years already and have not used
separate windows in a very long time, so admittedly I'm quite used to this.

Short answer: Alt+1 for conversation list, and Tab and Shift+Tab for chat input and history, for now. In JAWS, [ e and [ h jump to history and edit box, respectively, if you use my scripts.

Longer answer for NVDA users:

I initially planned to include keystrokes for jumping to edit box and history in my Skype 8 add-on, but I did not get around in time to learning a good way to set up layered keys, like [ e; and I did not want to risk colliding
with commands in Skype 8 itself. My natural keystroke for jumping to the edit box would probably have been Ctrl+E. It's a good thing I didn't do that; Ctrl+E is now the native Skype 8 command for hanging up a call.

So there's no shortcuts for NVDA users yet for jumping around in a chat window; but perhaps Microsoft will implement these even before I can. I observe, in defense of this idea, that Microsoft Teams does include at least a
keyboard shortcut for jumping to the input box.

An other important issue is that Skype 8 does not give us information who went offline and who came on line!

In my humble opinion it is the most important thing in accessibility point of view much more important than multiple chat windows!

OK, if the conversation list is easy to access, it can be acceptable, although it is harder to not see the name of the person in the title of the window.

Can you please tell me how you access the conversation list?

I made a test and configured Skype Classic to use a single window, and then I start tabbing around in that window, with the hope that I will find a way of changing the current chat. But I found only the following objects:
- input text field
- send image button
- send file button
- send video message button
- send contacts button
- insert emoticon or emogi button
- select to change status drop down button
- [my user name] button
- search text field
- see updates from your contacts in Skype home button
- call mobiles and landlines from the dial pad
- create a new conversation that anyone can join
- contacts tab (the other tabs are:recent, all)
- show unread conversations button
- recent messages (here appear: today, the list of recent chats, yesterday...)
- advertising frame
- [remote user] (I don't know what is this for)
- Add [remote user] to favourites button
- video call button
- call button
- add people button
- list of chat messages

I've seen that I can change the current remote user from "recent messages" above, after tabbing for 15 times, which is not really nice.
Plus that I need to select the user with up and down arrows, and when doing this, the focus can also move to other things like "today", or "yesterday".

Is there an easier method of selecting the remote user when a single window is used?
Or maybe in Skype 8 is easier than in Skype Classic?

Clarification: All Skype versions allow multiple simultaneous chats, but only Skype Classic allows chats to appear in separate windows. In Skype classic's default view and in all other Skype clients for Windows, you switch
among chats by choosing different conversations in the conversation list. I was doing that in Skype Classic for years already and have not used separate windows in a very long time, so admittedly I'm quite used to this.

It works and works well. You only chat with one person at once
anyway, and you do't want too many resources to be taken up, so take
it, or uninstall skype and never use it.

I use skype 8 every day for my jobs and don't mind that it is only 1
chat, it always has ben one chat and always will be one chat.

We might accept this limitation and not start chatting with more than
one person concomitently, but other people might start chatting us.
What can we do in that case? Can we distinguish somehow the source of
chat messages? Can we decide to whom we want to type to if this thing
happends?

The very bad policy of forcing us to use another worse application
doesn't make me have the courage of trying Skype 8, see if I like it,
and if not, return to Skype 7 at least for the next one month and a
half, because I'm afraid that this might be impossible and I might need
to start using the worse solution right now.

I can actually see the anem of the person I’m chatting wiht once I hit enter, I see them outside the window then I hit enter and Im in the chat. After that I use my web nav keys such as f for edit field and stuff to find the edit field if I want to.

OK, the edit field might be easy to find using web nav keys as you said. But how do you find the list of chats in order to be able to switch to another chat?
This might be different on Skype 8 than in Skype Classic, and I hope that is easier, because in Skype Classic I need to press the tab key for 15 times.
