Not difficult at all. And, actually, with the two posts of yours I’ve just approved it’s also moot, as you’re no longer moderated.

You’ve only been on this list since April 13, per your account history. You’ve posted twice to the list since that time prior to yesterday. You left and rejoined, and have had a couple posts approved since then.

James,

         You might want to consider adding something like, "Your posts will be on moderated status until you have made 4 posts," and explaining why in the welcome message.  This policy is a good idea but I can understand why someone with little experience with e-mailing lists and/or online forums with initial moderation settings would not really suspect this to be the case.

Re: Skype 8 scripts?

Cristóbal
 

My biggest gripe with the new Skype 8 is that the hotkeys no longer seem to
be universal. You now have to be in the application window itself for them
to take affect. A significant inconvenience if you're working in multiple
desktop and windows and applications. Especially since it feels like a
needless step backwards as this wasn't the case previously.
Also, I'm noticing that where as in the older versions of Skype you could
have incoming call audio routed to your headset and the ringer sound still
go to your external speakers, this option doesn't appear to be available in
Skype 8. This was helpful if you weren't at your PC or didn't have your
headset on.
Jaws isn't announcing the caller ID either, but I have to imagine that this
will be one of those things that will be fixed with a future JFW update. I
never used any third party scripts either since I don’t' use any of the
messaging features, but rather just for incoming and outgoing calls.

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

Re: Skype 8 scripts?

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

No, not from FS, but Doug Lee has Skype 8 scripts on his site, https://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=www.dlee.org&;data=02%7C01%7C%7C434897dad1a14312146608d5ef1b0249%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636677821626323308&sdata=ysLiYVAjdth01DCVd%2Fmsm49poWBQaJiMQBaswlK0rFI%3D&reserved=0.
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.

Are there no scripts yet for Skype 8?

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.
