Hi everybody, you can force Window-Eyes to work with version 2.0, but the
last version that it worked well with is 1.4.  I have the latest version of
both Skype and the scripts for Skype on
www.alanmattison.net.
Check them out!

The information seems to be more automated with the scripts.  Also, the beta
scripts let you tell who is online without having to arrow through your
contact list every time.  For me, those seem to be the main benefits thus
far.

Hi Ray,
 
I don't have any problems telling who is online or offline.  Can you tell me
what the scripts provide you that is different?
 
Thanks,
 
RIck

While it is true that, strictly speaking, you can get by without scripts for
Skype 2.0.79 with Jaws version 7, the beta version of the Jaws scripts are
helpful in providing information as to who is online and not.  They just
make it a little easier to use.

Hi,
 
Please correct me if I give incorrect info here.  My understanding from the
other mail listsI have read from  is that if you are using JAWS then Skype
2.0 doesn't really require any scripts to use it.  I am currently using JAWS
7 and Skype 2.0 and no scripts.  I have no real problems using it at all.
 
Not sure about WindowEyes though.
 
Rick

Hi,
 
I took a look at the scripts on the JFW Lite page found at:
http://www.panix.com/~ccn/projects/jfw/skype.php
 
and it looks like they are designed for Skype 1.x, rather than Skype 2.0
which is the current production version.  The scripts look like they were
last updated in Feb of 2005.
 
I have installed Skype 2.0 and it seems to work relatively well with Jaws
without scripts, although I certainly don't know many if any of the hot
keys, and I have had to use the Jaws cursor to perform a moderate number of
tasks.

Hi all,
 
Well it's almost 3:30 A.M. and I have been playing around getting Skype to
work; not too hard, since I created an account early last year and never
used it. I need to learn the hot keys (which I enabled in the options
section of the tools menu) and have version 2 of Skype and version 3 of the
scripts for it, obtainable from a number of sources including jfwlite.com.
At any rate, I have no idea how to answer calls or hang up or any other such
thing so need a few days to learn that.
 
My ID, if anyone would like to add me, is mkemerson, all lower case. Hope
gave her ID and I added it, and I would like to add more if anyone wishes to
let me have their IDs. Please e-mail me privately if you want to provide
your account name so that the BCT list won't be cluttered up with stuff. You
can send your Skype ID to me at:
maryemerson@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
 
I won't keep Skype running every time I log on because I don't like too much
disruption, especially if I'm doing some sort of critical Windows stuff; but
if I'm doing e-mail, I'll log in and am interruptable although I'm not
really into lengthy conversations.
 
Anyway I am off to get some sleep, guess it's long over due but you know how
it goes when you putter around with these marathon PC experiments.
 
Mary
