Re: Skype add-on with NVDA 2019.3 and Python 3

Hi Sarah,


I downloaded Doug Lee’s add-on from his own website sometime last year, thinking that this was the one to run with Skype 8 on my Windows 7 desktop. Am I wrong? I have yet to switch to Windows 10 in the coming weeks, hence my original query about running it with NVDA 19.3 (beta 1) and Python 3 which some of the users might test.


As for Skype for iPhones, that’s a different matter and  is no issue for me. It’s working OK even though I dislike swiping back and forth and not being able to use key commands to more efficiently executre commands. But, again, that’s off topic.

Add-on is needed. Skype 8 works great with NVDA. I’m using the alpha builds right now and works like a champ.

Does anybody use or test Skype add-on with NVDA 2019.3 and Python 3 on
Windows 10? If not, how readily accessible is Skype running on Windows 10
and NVDA without an add-on? I was in touch with Doug Lee, its developer, who
told me (and I paraphrase) that his add-on did not work too well with the
current and older NVDA versions. Whether and how soon he might update his
add-on, I do not know and it may depend on how useful users may find it.
