This is the first script release specifically aimed at Skype 6.0 and later. These scripts are not intended for use with any Skype version older than 6.0. A JAWSKey+Ctrl+V should tell you your current Skype version number.
This script version is dynamic, meaning that updates to it will be made "in place," as was true for versions 5.0b through 5.5a. Newer revisions will replace older ones, and I will add change notes to this section as changes are made. In these scripts, the information announced for JAWSKey+Q will include not only the version number (6.0a) but also the exact revision number of the scripts you are running, such as 728.
Here are the changes in release 6.0a, most recent first. In JAWS, use the h or 3 keys to move through changes by release date, or Tab to jump straight to the download links.
This is the first update targeted at Skype 6.2, though it should also work with Skype 6.0 and 6.1. Changes:
Note: There were an alpha script set dubbed Revision 736 and a beta set dubbed Revision 737 that were distributed briefly for testing purposes before this official release. This Revision 731 script set is equivalent to the beta 737 revision. The reasons for this funny number sequence surprise have to do with version control systems and branch merging and are omitted here to avoid glazed-over eyes and suchlike.
Also note: Some users report an inability to navigate to profile fields when attempting to edit their profiles. This may be an issue specific to non-English Skype installations, but either way, the issue is caused by Skype failing to process the Tab key correctly until the user clicks with the mouse on a profile field once. For now, the solution is to use the JAWS cursor to click on a profile field and then switch back to the PC cursor and tab normally.
This is a minor update that makes the following possible:
To connect Skype to Facebook after loading this script version:
All of the above steps worked in the original 6.0a script release except for arrowing down to find the "Connect to Facebook" button.
This is the first release of scripts specifically for Skype 6.0. The major feature is correct support for typing indicators (sounds and announcements) in Skype 6.0. Some obsolete script code for old Skype versions is also removed.
