Hi Tone, haven't heard from you for a while. Yes downgrading is fine I am sure but depending on the versions of Jaws both ladies have, I understand that there are in fact scripts for Jaws for Skype 4.0. Indeed I think there was a gentleman asking about Skype recently too.

Hi Eleanor!

Thanks for the vote of confidence!

Now Noreen has more or less resolved her issue re Skype!

Both She and Joan Ann are indeed experienced so I really can't advise further!

Now except to say that it is probabbly not a big issue to uninstall Skype 4 that was mentioned, reverting to reinstalling previous Skype version!

Well should you want my penny's worth, then I have found on occasion that when you say upgrade you may not be able to revert back as some programmes may not allow that!

I also think that it should be borne in mind that when sometimes you upgrade that there may not be the scripts of Jaws for example to go with your upgrade!

Just because it is "shining new" don't expect if you upgrade to it that the garden then will always be rosy!

Anyone any further thoughts on what I say or contradictory ones on this would be glad to hear from you!

Okay Eleanor?

Keep on truckin!

Cheers

Tony

I know how you feel Paul. I would like to use Skype but have not the time for it unfortunately. Thought Tony might have some suggestions. Had a feeling he used Skype. Sorry Tony for mentioning your name on this one.

Hi Eleanor.

Thanks for that, very interesting. I am not a member of that list and, to
be honest, would rather not join any more lists as my in box is already
pretty cluttered, despite using message rules to great effect. However, if anyone out there is on the list to which you refer, perhaps they would have
opinions or advice about Skype 4.0 and the jaws scripts

I followed the configuration instructions as much as I could, but as was pointed out in the instructions, some versions of Skype 4.0 do not have all the necessary menu options, including mine. Don't quite understand why this
should be so but there it is.

In the absence of good advice from someone out there, I suspect I'll also
revert to Skype 3.8.

Paul

Many many people in the UK who are visually impaired are using the Skype 4. You can configure it. Have you thought of asking on the access-uk list/ Of

course yhou would have to join.  It does not have juristictioin
restrictions.

According to the Skype site 4.0 is not accessible as yet, for Jaws users
and I would agree with this, having installed it.

would

In my wisdom I updated Skype to 4.0 and then found there were many

changes including difficulty with access. Now I have read on Skype

site that 4.0 is not yet accessible for blind or visually impaired

users and we should continue to use 3.8. Do I have to uninstall Skype

4.0 and then install 3.8 or is there any other way?



Thanks,



Noreen M.
