This is interesting. Is there any other way to get them to send you that registration code, or did you ask? Couldn't they send it via e-mail or another instant messenger system? How is it from an accessibility point of view? I heard some time back the developers were working with Jonathan Mosen or maybe someone else in the blind community. Did this amount to anything?

hi. another alternative is Power Gramo http://www.powergramo.com
be warned though! If you purchase the full addition, they will send you your registration code via skype chat. depending on how successful it is, you should be able to copy down the information they send you and put it into the proper edit box in the registration dialogue. I tried to virtualize the window with JAWS 7 so i had to take the long way around and copy it in by hand and man it's a long number! but if you can do it it's worth $20. you can have Powergramo record both sides of the skype conversation and even place them into different tracks, you on the left and the other person on the right. it works beautifully once you get it set up properly.

Hi, I don't see anything in Skype that would allow you to record. I would assume you can have Sound Forge or whatever sound editor open during a call and record it. But a couple of days ago I was looking at a web page of a podcaster and he claimed that he had discovered how to record with skype. I don't understand what he was suggesting or even if it is accessible with my screen reader JAWS but I'll place his remarks here and the web page if you want to take a look. http://www.raggedcastle.com/webcrumbs/archives/003724.html December 18, 2004
Recording Skype Calls
I figured out how to record Skype calls. I've seen a lot of confusion on this so hopefully this will help someone else. If nothing else, this will serve to remind me later when I forget what i did.
Basically, I started with the information from Engadget's Podcasting Article as a starting point.
Using the tools they specify, I set the following:
System Preferences Settings: Sound input: Soundflower (2ch), Sound output: Headphones.
Line In: Input Device: iMic USB audio (my sound input port is dead so I use an iMic), Output: Soundflower (2ch).
Skype: Audio Input and Output: Soundflower (2ch)
Audio Hijack Pro: Created a new entry in the left panel called "Skype Conversation" and set it to hijack an audio device as follows: Input: Soundflower (2ch), Output: Built-in Audio, Headphones.
Once all of that was set, I was able to place a Skypeout call to my home phone and was able to record it (and hear myself at the same time :)
Special thanks to this site which, while in Italian, had enough pictures for me to figure out what to do.
