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, you’ll get a new version that 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 why prior to September 1, when Skype 7.4 is retired, we’ll be releasing a JAWS 2018 update that ensures 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 you’re feeling adventurous, but we’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.

This update must not have hit me yet, as I was on that site this very morning and saw no change.


One of the things I have always liked about http://www.chase.com is its accessibility, in which I am proud to say I had a part, albeit a small one, in the latter part of the first half of the first decade of this century when I still worked for them in an unrelated capacity. Tell me what I have to look forward to. What broke?

Re: Chase banking web site

I too hate the changes. I contacted Chase a number of times, but didn’t see any implementation of my suggestions. I am getting more proficient but still get lost at times. I am using both JAWS and NVDA, Firefox much of the time and Windows 10. Both readers perform well, but the issue is layout. The old version had a pretty easy tab order of steps, but now, not nearly as intuitive. Someone,, as in one of us, should do a quick tutorial on at least basic navigation of the site. I just want to come away knowing I have made the correct payment to the right card.

Re: selecting text

HH. Smith Jr.
 

Brian,

 

I just tried it. You can use the temporary place marker key ctrl+windows key and K then move the cursor down to the end of what you want selected. Then press the layer keystroke JAWS key  and spacebar then the letter M. this will only select what is between the place markers. You can then copy the text. This also works in notepad.

Tom,

             Have just tested these, which are part of a document I wrote up on selecting text via the keyboard and these work in Notepad. 

Selecting large “chunks” of your document

CTRL+A selects all, from beginning to end of the document, no matter what your current cursor position

CTRL+SHIFT+End Button [Num Pad 1] selects from the cursor position to the end of document

CTRL+Shift+Home button [Num Pad 7] selects from the cursor position to the beginning of the document

Line by line selection   (and a line in Notepad is a sequence of characters that ends with Enter. provided the cursor is positioned at the start of the line, see note below)

SHIFT+Down Arrow Button [Num Pad 2] selects the current line if the cursor is positioned to the left of the first word in the line

 

SHIFT+Up Arrow Button [Num Pad 8] selects the current line if the cursor is positioned to the right of the last word in the line
Note:  
If the cursor is positioned in the middle of the line you will get selection wrap to the next line until the number of characters from the start of current line are selected.

 

Word by word selection

CTRL+SHIFT+Right Arrow Button [Num Pad 6] selects word by word working from left to right (normal reading order).  Note, it selects the space at the end of the word  that separates it from the next word, too.

CTRL+SHIFT+Left Arrow Button [Num Pad 4] selects word by word working from right to left (backward through text).

Either of the above can be used to unselect words you've already selected going in the opposite direction.  So if you accidentally overshoot you can correct it.

Character by character selection

SHIFT+Right Arrow Button [Num Pad 6] selects character by character working from left to right

SHIFT+Left Arrow Button [Num Pad 6] selects character by character working from right to left

 

Either of the above can be used to unselect characters you've already selected going in the opposite direction.  So if you accidentally overshoot you can correct it.
