I was able to go to and roll back to classic that's good. but
it still troubles me they make these apps virtually inaccessible. but
hey what can we do right i did get it to be usable but still with no
hotkeys or anything it needs work.

I have exactly the same problem. JAWS or NVDA does not seem to access
the new Skype nearly as well. I would love to switch back as well.
Also, is the New Skype the same Skype as the win10 Skype app, or is it
something else. I wasn’t even sure about that.

Have a great one, guys!

So I was encouraged by my computer to try the new Skype well now i can't

go back to the classic Skype it seems and it would also seem that the

new version is a mess for accessibility in my humble opinion has anyone

used this new version of Skype successfully and what are your thoughts

and tips? Also i still use jaws on occasion to help a friend who refuses

to give up on it no idea why but i was that way once too so i cant say

anything. but i will try checking in with others as well maybe the add

on list who knows who might have a clue or if anything how can i roll

back to classic oh and good news the feedback hub works with nvda unlike

jaws. just saying can anyone help me with my problem?

Thanks, awaiting the ding for email on my phone,
