Re: Latest Skype and screen readers

Richard Kuzma

I don’t use skype here, but am on a tech team group.

They were talking about skype last evening.

try pressing the alt key to get to the menu and then pressing escape and see if that helps.

They think it is a focus issue.

Try alt tabbing away from skype and then alt tab back and see if that does anything.

Subject: [nvda] Latest Skype and screen readers


Respected friends, today I’m very sorry to let you know that with the latest NVDA I cannot use Skype.

The matter of fact is that I’m using Skype 8.63.

As I go to desktop and focus to Skype, it says nothing other than Skype.

With JAWS it is continuously saying Chrome Legacy Windows, but with narrator it is working fine.

Please do something it is a serious issue!

With regards from Inamuddin with the Skype ID:
