Skype ver 8.33


Paul O'Rahilly
 

Folks

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

I’ve got the solution to your problem and it’s got nothing to do with skype and doesn’t cost anything.  There’s a tremendous app you can put on the computer and on your smart phone.  It’s called Teamtalk.  You can get it at www.bearware.dk.  When you get to the download page, it’s gonna recommend that you download Teamtalk % Classic for accessibility.  It’s a little more involved to set up than skype and you have to have their help doing it.  They have to activate your server which doesn’t have to be public.  In the case of a private server, you’d have to give someone the credentials (port numbers, servername, etc.)  If you have a decent microphone, you won’t believe the clarity.  And, when you have conversations, you and the other party don’t cut into each other if one of you should happen to start speaking before the other finishes.  There’s just a hugely positive difference between teamtalk and apps like skype and google hangouts.   I hope you decide to try it.  Good luck.

I doubt that addresses the problem.  If a lot of people use Skype you talk with and not another program as well such as Team Talk, then you would have to use Skype and not another such program to talk with them, isn't that correct?

Well skype classic is gone or is soon to be.

Skype 8 is what you will have if you need it.

I know people have used it but fortunately as I have little need of it for business and can switch most of that to email I simply have left that behind.

Its accessible supoposed to be more so but who knows or cares if you don't need it.

I use skype and zoom. Skype for one of my jobs and zoom for another. I want to actually start teaching classes so will consider integrating class room like features of zoom if I can figure out how. By the way skype 8 is very very accessible. You jus tneed to use your web browsing functiosn. It's not a big deal really, or won't be if you can think of skype like a a big web page. They have wanted to do this since about 2004 when I started to use skype.

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!

I've never seen anybody mainstream usin teamtalk. It seems like only blind people use it, sadly. It's a great program even though it is not simple to set up. As for what you can do to make this new version a bit easier to use, there's very little you can do. I would at least turn auto answering calls on. Below are the steps. The privacy issue is outweighed by the amount of time it takes for users to answer a call manually.

  1. Hit Alt, T.
  2. Arrow down to preferences.
  3. Once inside preferences, go to the calls tab and check answer incoming calls automatically. Settings save automatically so close the window after.

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

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.
