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

Hi Mario,

Thanks for the advice, someone else mentioned this and it sounds like a nice
straight forward method to answer calls, so I'm just about to go set that up

Thanks for the help

from another list, unfortunately there isn't any shortcut key to answer a
call. however the method to use is:

1. Make a shortcut key that immediately puts focus on the Skype 8 window. Do
this by assigning a shortcut key to the Skype 8 Desktop shortcut.

2. When a call comes in, type your shortcut, tab for caller ID, then tab to
the Answer button and press Space.

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.

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.
