Thanks for mentioning this, we've noticed a decline in accessibility here too on a win 8.1 and my win 10 machine but will try the accessibility mode and see if that helps.

Hi.
Well I just decided to update skype for windows desktops.
It sadly appears that skype the new skype sadly is not even closed to
accessible.
Buttons for contacts and messages appear ok but over that there is a
lot of clickable, clickable, clickables.
The settings tab was completely inaccessible though I was able to set
it up just fine.
I really hope ms is going to keep skype classic, you can get round
this right now by typing skype setup full in google and it will find
you the old one but how long this will stay out is anyone's guess.
I can't even get the right click menu in system tray to work.
If anything else all I really want is ms to keep skype classic
available for those that want it, they don't need to do anything to
it, I'd prefur a simple classic skype for us blind people but failing
that if skype stays as it is well.
I just can't loose skype all my business and other stuff goes through it.
Its not an option, but if skype becomes crap, I may have to use an old
version or even just no longer use skype because its crap now!
No, I can't even do that, the new interface I just can't get round it,
I have been happily able to reinstall skype classic and update it with
the latest classic version.
You need to look for the classic version now.
This is not on.
And it appears the new app won't run on the latest win10 which itself
is fine but to be honest the classic skype is really accessible.
