[access-uk] Re: Using Skype

Hi Steve and Doris

I didn't have the latest version of the scripts installed when I ran Skype for the first time, which is why perhaps the alert didn't speak when I tried with the various JAWS cursors. Anyway, they are in now and I'm up and running. I'm picking it up as I go along (smile). I'm still liable to cut myself off halfway through a conversation with someone as I did last night, or take an age to answer the call when somebody rings, but, what the hell? It's a bit of fun!

Hi Doris,

But the scripts access the Com object of Skype directly, which does cause it
to bring up that alert.

All the best

As far as I know the jaws scripts for skype do not contain anything that
would connect to the skype api and trigger that permission mesage.

Use your jaws or invisible cursor to find the information  as to which
program is trying to connect to skype. alternatively you can virtualize the
window with

insert+control+w

and copy its contents to the clipboard to paste into a mesage to the list.

Programs that would connect to the skype api and make skype ask for
permission are, for exampel, SKREad, answering machine programs for skype
such as SAM and Pamela, etc.

Hi Jackie,

I believe this is the JAWS Skype scripts.  Just say allow if that is the
case.

All the best

Subject: [access-uk] Using Skype

Guys, I have just gone through the process of setting up a Skype
account (finally), and have been asked the following question, for
which there are three radio buttons I can choose to check.  It is
telling me that another program wants to use Skype, and do I want to
allow this, allow it but ask later, or not allow it.  My feeling is to
go with the latter because JAWS isn't telling me what the other program
is, and says there could be a security threat if I allow it.  But I
don't want to disable something else that might need to use it, if you
see what I mean.

Any suggestions please?

Many many thanks to everyone for their help.  I wanted to do this on my
own so closed my eyes, held my breath and did (smiles).  I'm not a
great installer of programs if all is working, but I've been curious to
try out Skype and felt the only way to ever know what it's like is to
get on with it.

Jackie
