[access-uk] Re: Skype

Hi Eleanor,

Don't know much about Skype 4 but there is a tutorial about using Skype by
Sara Alawami.

The url is:

www.marrie.org

I posted a query to her on the previous release and she answered that the
interface of Skype ddidn't change!

Try there and also go through the menus not forgetting tools and see how you
go.

I don't use it much but I am sure that there is a help facility to check out
too.

I do however like to know what changes there are?

Now scripts can be installed certainly for 3.8!

Well that's my penny's worth on the subject.

HTH

Tony
