Hi Joseph,

Thank you so much for useful information: it was me who asked and am happy

to have more details on the matter: anyway, if there was the possibility
to build an add-on to make it more usable; please do it... It is a
suggestion made by someone totally ignorant in the field, so excuse me if

I say stupid things.

actually, I find Skype a bit clumsy.


Thanks again.

Stay well

Ciao

Dear NVDA community,


A few weeks ago someone asked me if I could take a look at the latest
incarnation of Skype for Desktop, nowadays known as Skype Preview
(version
8.12). Preliminary results and the advisory is as follows:


Skype for Desktop has gone through a total redesign, borrowing UI (user
interface) elements from universal app version of Skype (Windows 10).
Instead of tabs and such, it is now a web interface. The following are
notable features:


* Contacts list is a combo box.
* Call, My Info and other elements are buttons.
* In order to type messages, you need to switch to focus mode from
chat edit box.


Thus, you need to be familiar with web navigation concepts and commands
to
use Skype 8 for Desktop. Also, due to UI redesign, existing Skype app
module
that ships with NVDA, nor the app module for Skype universal app that
ships
with Windows 10 App Essentials add-on won't work.


Technical: developer info for Skype objects will return values for both
IAccessible and IAccessible2, usually seen with Firefox controls.
Basically,
it is a web interface packaged as an app. Note that installation of Skype

8
for desktop will fail on Windows 10 because of preference for Skype
universal app.


Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph
