Re: NVDA and Skype Accessability


Well an article on the skype blog site suggests that they were going forward to fast and need to step back a bit to get a bit of a simplistic interface.

If we can convince them to allow a classic skype interface theme and hotkeys like before I think that would at least work.

I am aware that just yesterday a Jaws update came down with an update for the new Skype for that screenreader, but Not sure what windows 7 does about Skype as I've not been a fan of it for some time as every time microsoft change it they break its accessibility. I'd expect more from them considering the work they are putting into narrator on 10.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA and Skype Accessability

Hi all,

I am a new member of this list from Malta Europe.  I have Windows 7 and had to upgrade to the latest version of Skype 8.22.  I would like to ask whether there is an addon from NVDA which makes the ap accessible.

Thank you very much,
