Hi Again Mary,
Actually, I find that there is really no good reason for using the scripts
with the later versions of Skype.

Mika and list,,
When I invoke Skype 2 with the scripts from jfwlite, they seem to work; at
least when I do insert-h I get the information from the scripts. So for now
am keeping them. Similarly, I still use the Jaws 5 scripts for Easy CD
Creator with Jaws 7 and they still work fine, so I don't think these
software updates change the interface very much. There are exceptions of
course; for example, if you needed to migrate from Creator 5 to Creator 6,
you'd have to get some new scripts, but that's not always true. Some of the
programs I worked with at IBM hadn't changed their interface in 15 years and
I could still use the same old Jaws scripts (for Jaws 3.3, believe it or
not) with new versions of the IBM software because the interface didn't
change; the only difference was that with later versions of Jaws, the
scripts had to be re-compiled but that wasn't a big deal.
I'm just logging on and off Skype briefly to add contacts since I don't have
a clue what to do with it yet. I've gotten some nice welcome messages;
folks, I am not ignoring you; I just am in confusion mode for a while
longer. Thanks for the welcomes but I don't know yet how to answer you.
