I personally prescribe to the motto "if it ain't broke ..."

if you can do all you want and need to in skype 3.8 and have no particular reason to want to upgrade to 4.x, I'd personally recommend staying with 3.8.

I have run the portable version of 4.1 and it is quite doable but a few parts of it still have some issues. If you do want to upggrade to 4.1, be prepared to use the mouse emulation in a few places and adjust to a different program layout. Quite doable but not necesarily recommendable. ,g>

I'm currently using Skype 3.8 and doing well with it, though I don't use the Skype watch facility. I'm debating upgrading to 4 or 4.1 but I'm wondering what I need to be aware of as far as the accessibility is concerned. In 3.8, I know how to do Skype text chats, host conferences, add contacts etc and if I can access all of that in 4, then I may upgrade. Any help with this will be really appreciated.

Using Jaws 10 with latest, or maybe recent update and Windows Vista Home Premium.
