Re: Metro Skype and JAWS

What do we do if for some reason the newer version of skype and/or gw
connect stop working when this happens? I know it's unlikely, but I'm
just planning ahead in case there's a slim chance it may happen.

Thanks,
Brandon

You just wouldn't be able to use that any more. It was an api to control the

skype client itself, not GWConnect, and likely not the newer versions.

So what versions of Skype will this effect? Is Skype for desktop
latest version made with this or something different? I'm talking
about the current non-metro version of skype.

Thanks,

Brandon

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.

Hi,

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
8?

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

Thanks,

Brandon
