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


 

Hi,

Depends. I need to test it more with various screen readers I have. The version I’m eluding to is being tested by only a select few, and once it hits the air, it’ll have massive impact (talk to me privately if you want more info).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Joseph!

Will these changes to the Skype app for Win10 make the app more or les accessible?

I use the Skype app on Win10 a lot, and like it.

Hi,

One thing I can add: expect huge changes to Skype UWP on Windows 10 very soon.

Cheers,

Joseph

I didn’t say there weren’t scripts for the Windows UWP app, but based on what I read from Doug Lee on this topic and now from Jonathan it seems that Skype 8 is the way to go and it appears even Microsoft is putting more development behind it.

No scripts for Skype UWP? Say it ain't so! http://www.dlee.org/skype/uwp/

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:
