Re: can't hear jaws when I get a skype call


Remember that Microsoft has announced that Skype 7 will finally go away later in November.

There is no global hotkey like Alt+PageUp in Skype 8 to answer a call, but you can put Skype on the desktop and set up a hotkey for it like Alt+Control+S so when a call comes in you can press that hot key to focus/open the Skype app, then use Control+Shift+P to answer the call.

As for taking care of the issue of Jaws being muted or very quiet when a Skype call comes in that is easily fixed and I explained how in my reply to Paul which is more detailed.

JAWS does the same thing with Skype version 7.  There is a key combination, alt + page up, to answer, so it is not an issue to not be able to hear JAWS.  I do not know the Skype 8 answer call command, but I know it exists.

Subject: can't hear jaws when I get a skipe call




So I’ve recently installed the latest version of skipe onto my PC, but when I get a skipe call come through I can’t hear Jaws any longer  to be able to answer the call. It seems like the volume of jaws is lowering when the skipe call comes through. Does anyone have or know of a solution to this? Also on a similar note, to answer an incoming skipe call  I usually use jaws key and f11 to view everything in my system tray, then scroll down to skipe click that and then from the skipe dropdown menu which appears I select answer call, is there a quicker way to answer a call, maybe a key combination/shortcut I’m not aware of?


Thanks in advance for any help.
