Re: Skype 8 scripts?

Richard Turner
 

Thanks so much Sieghard.
I like Doug Lee's sense of humor.
Someone had stated on this list that Skype for Windows 10 had no hotkeys, but the Microsoft page gives hotkeys for Skype for Windows 10, Skype version 8 and version 7. I know 7 is retiring, but it would appear that Microsoft has retained the bulk of the Windows hotkeys for Skype for Windows 10.

Is that what Doug Lee is referring to with the Native Skype UWP Keyboard Shortcuts?
I know the U is for Universal.
I'm new to Skype on Windows and am mainly trying to learn it for a client, but might start using it myself from time to time.

Thanks again for your help,
Richard

Jaws will focus on Skype 8 and an initial release of scripts will come in an August update, possible a later in August update, then more improvements will be made in Jaws 2019.

Microsoft is retiring Skype 7.4. Here’s
important information for JAWS users



by <http://blog.freedomscientific.com/?author=4>Jonathan Mosen

On 1 September, Microsoft will stop supporting
Skype 7. This is the version of Skype most of us
have been using in recent years, and for which
scripts are included with every copy of JAWS. It
is our expectation that this withdrawal of
support will mean that Skype 7.4 will no
longer connect to the service at all.

To continue to use Skype, you'll need to upgrade
to something newer. The next time you update,
you̢۪ll get a new version that at has a completely
new user interface presenting as a web page inside Chrome.

The best way to interact with this updated
version is with the virtual cursor turned off.
You can turn it off manually each time the Skype
window gains focus by pressing Insert+z, but we
realize that this will be inconvenient.

That’s ¢s why prior to September 1, when Skype
7.4 is retired, we̢۪ll be releasing a JAWS 2018
update that ensursures that the virtual cursor
is off when Skype is in focus.

Microsoft has a document detailing
<https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12025/what-
are-hotkeys-and-how-do-i-use-them-in-skype>hotkeys
for Skype 8. We suggest reading it before you perform the upgrade.

We'll go even further. We know many people rely
on Skype in a professional capacity and to keep
in touch with family and friends. We're using
the power of JAWS scripting to create the most
efficient screen reader experience with Skype,
by adding some additional optimization that will
be useful when working with Skype 8.

For those of you on Windows 10, there is also a
version of Skype available from the Windows
Store. Feel free to try it if you̢۪re feeling
adventurous, but weâ€â„€™re going to focus our
attention on Skype 8 because it can be installed
on all Windows versions and is therefore available to all JAWS users.

Our objective is to ensure that our users can
continue to use Skype once 7.4 stops working, so
there are some time constraints about our
initial support and there may be some rough
edges to begin with. We'll build on the August
support over time, including improvements coming in JAWS 2019.

We would like to extend our thanks to Doug Lee,
a valued member of our JAWS scripting community,
for the work he has already done on scripting
this version of Skype, and his willingness to
share his experiences and concepts with us so that all JAWS users benefit.

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:
