Seriously? Fewwwwwwww'w'w'w! I thought the desktop API is what they
came out with in 2010. Does this effect regular skype though? If so,
how does it not effect GwConnect?

old from the Skype Extras days. You could use that or the regular non-metro

version. I've read that the apps in metro are a mixed bag for accessibility,

more so than desktop apps.

I heard news from some sites that skype will be retiring it's desktop
API in September and totally closing it at the end of 2013. For this
reason, I am asking, does JAWS work with the metro skype for windows

If not, is there a way it could be accessible?
