JAWS Skype script revision 220 released, to fix issues in Skype 8.82


Doug Lee
 

Two things I missed in my earlier reply:

First, there is another cause of that message: If you type Alt+1 while in a split-view window (a separate chat
window) or an active call window, the field really won't be in the window; but the Alt+1 will then be sent to
Skype and will switch focus to the main Skype window.

Second, the translation for the scConvList constant must be exactly, including letter casing, the name of the
Conversations list in Skype itself.

You will probably need to translate the scConvList constant in the XML file to avoid that message. The command
still works because it will simulate the native Alt+1 command when it can't find the field.

Hi Doug, thanks for the report about new revision of the Skype scripts which I
just installed, and also for the answer on the other thread about Windows
defender. The alt+1 fix that you made is actually causing a strange situation
with this command when using revision 220: even if the conversations list pops
up normally, it tells me "field not found".

Bye!

Thanks Doug,

I just downloaded the revised scripts and installed them.

Thanks very much for all you do to keep the scripts updated!

Subject: [skypeenglish] JAWS Skype script revision 220 released, to fix
issues in Skype 8.82

As I mentioned in another thread on this list, Skype version 8.82 came out
on Friday or so and broke a few things in my scripts. Notable among these
was the typing indicator sound, which began playing constantly in all chat
windows. I released a temporary fix yesterday (Saturday) but now have a full
release for everyone.

Go to https://www.dlee.org/skype/#hist to read the release notes. The
download link, as usual, is on the same page. Note that this update should
only be used if you are running Skype 8.82 or later. Running this updated
script revision with an older Skype version is likely to cause a few things
not to work as expected.

One extra bit of good news: A few of you a while back reported that Alt+1
did not work to move to the Conversations list when a group chat was in
focus. This is because Alt+1 is a native Skype keystroke and it did not work
in that particular circumstance. In this revision 220 of the scripts, I
finally scripted around this so it does work in that case.

Happy Skyping.

Oh well here was me blaming my computer for that constant typing noise.
Thanks Doug.
