Re: Skype ver 8.33

Brian's Mail list account

A lot of people are using Zoom, but its early days. I have not used it for a while, but I believe its not free if you want to use it a lot for complex stuff. I saw some issues mentioned about compatibility with nvda, at least the one that works with xp, and I also suspect from comments seen elsewhere that the newer versions of Zoom do not run on xp any more either, which is par for the course these days.

If anyone has Zoom working well on XP it would be nice to hear as many of my friends have XP as all they do is fiddle about online and use email for which its still OK given the anti virus being up to date of coarse, but its very slow on browsing and in any case many web sites now won't even look at Firefox 52.

I heard the other day that in the US Skype for Alexa is being rolled out, but you still need a skype account created on a browser first to be able to use it with the echo range.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Skype ver 8.33

hi chris and all.
as i use windows xp and skype 8 is not supported on xp, i decided to
try other programs.
can you please explane me differences between skype and zoom?
i also tried teamtalk and the quality was extremely great, but the
difficulty is not having account like skype and need port, server, etc
which made teamtalk a little dificult for me in compare to skype which
is more private, i have my account and only have relations with people
who i know.
how about zoom? is it like skype in this regard or like teamtalk?
i really appreciate any help and wish to contact to other people, but
dont know what can i do now!
God bless you all!

Forgive me if you have discussed this already.

I stupidly upgraded my Skype classic to the latest ver 8.33.

I'm struggling to make it work with either NVDA or JAWS, with the same
ease as Skype classic.

Does anyone have suggestions ?.

Thanks, Paul
