I use the universal Skype app all the time. Tabbing three or four times, is not that bad, along with some key commands. I can find what I want quicker than I can with the desktop program. NVDA really works well with the Skype app. That is awesome.

Have a great one, guys!

Hi,

Skype universal app does have shortcut keys, such as Alt+1 to go to conversations, Alt+2 for contacts, Alt+3 for bots and so on).

In the new Windows app thing? Sure. In fact I think it's the only way to use it really.
