Questions about Skype with NVDA


Sam Bushman
 

Hi All,

 

There are so many versions of skype now – I need to use this for a job I am doing. What version of skype works best with NVDA?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Sam

 


Jason White
 

Are you referring to the consumer version of Skype, or to Skype for Business (which is being replaced by Microsoft Teams)? They’re totally different, notwithstanding the name.

Not that well. As far as I remember, Skype 8 came into effect in 2018, and I found navigating with NVDA (without an add-on) somewhat tedious. The NVDA add-on (for Skype 8) got updated and is compatible with NVDA 2019.3 and higher earlier this year, and it works great.

i tested 2017.3 for some days and i loved it.
but most of my needed features are in 2017.2 and it was the best
feature for me that i want to use it always.
what happens if i use nvda 2017.2 with skype 8?
is there a solution to use skype 8 on windows xp?
i tested one day on windows seven and i loved it.
but, i could not install it on windows xp.

I don't need or use an add on. I just treat skype as a a web page and go from there. It's easy to navigate and very very fast, at least on windows.

No, but you can use nvda's qn keys to do the same thing. It is an electron app. For more discussion go to the skype english list which can be found at groups.io

You really need to get off XP. Your taking risks by still using an outdated OS. No Skype 8.X will not support XP. Sorry.

i remember one day, i downloaded skype 8 on windows seven and it worked.
i did not sign in and did not use skype for my general use on that
day, and skype 7 still worked.
but i loved the web interface of skype 8 and loved it very much, as i
love using my firefox!
i tested only with nvda 2017.2 and i did not test with another
versions of nvda to see what are the difference.

--
By God,
were I given all the seven heavens
with all they contain
in order that
I may disobey God
by depriving an ant
from the husk of a grain of barley,
I would not do it.
