The question is, using the mousepointer, can you still see the contact list? it 
seems the only screenreader, that works with the new skype is jaws.

Hi All,

I have discovered that the very latest version of Skype does not work 
as well with Window-Eyes 5.5. With Skype version 1.4.084, Window-Eyes 
reads the contact list perfectly when one uses the up and down 
arrows. In this version, the status of a contact is announced. In the 
very latest version, I cannot get this to work at all. I think Skype 
broke the       accessibility in this version. I am just letting 
Window-Eyes users know not to upgrade if you don't want to loose this 
very nice capability.
