Re: should i use skype for windows 10 or skype 8 for jaws 2018

Use Skype 8, the Windows 10 UWP app is not very good to use, no shortcut keys and all you can do is tab and hope for the best. You may also read this article which Jonathan Mosen just wrote regarding Skype plans, a lot of heavy Skype users were still using Skype 7.4 with the Jaws scripts from Doug Lee, but as of September 1 Microsoft will retire Skype 7 and it is expected that you won’t even be able to connect any more using it and you will have to then use Skype 8 or the UWP app, but it would appear that you will want to put your money (figuratively speaking) on Skype 8:
