Re: Using Skype with NVDA
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I am no Skype expert but I have been using it for the past lockdown year to keep in touch with my friends. How do you open Skype? I press the Windows key to open the search box, type in "skype" (without quotes). In the list of results, the skype app is at the top and I press enter on it.
I don't understand why NVDA would go silent when an app opens other than you have a NVDA config which silences it somehow. Check if you have a config profile for skype and get rid of it if there is one.
I don't know of any Skype related add-ons, there may be some but I use Skype successfully without them
Do you have a Skype account, you should automatically have one if you have a Microsoft account and should be able to sign into Skype with your microsoft userid or the email address you have registered with your MS A/c.
Check these things out first, then we can have another look.

Subject: [nvda] Using Skypewith NVDA
I need to use Skype for a possible new job. However, when I start it, I don’t get any speech. I have tried going in and out of browse mode, and still there is nothing. Would someone mind giving me some quick tips and/or pointing me towards an ad-on? I looked on the NVDA add-on site and just found one. I’m not sure how modern it is. I am using Win10 and the latest NVDA.
