  1. Improve Skype Accessibility on the desktop versions of Skype for Mac and Windows

    Skype version 8 is horrible for screen reader users. The new web interface is very sluggish and extremely difficult to navigate and use with VoiceOver on the mac or a Windows screen reader.

      A recent update (I'm now on 16.0.8201.2200) changed this so that now when I return to the…

      • I am suggesting that Microsoft should never allow Two Unknown Networks ,that you all alert about, to configure and run on that account your

        my windows 10 was taken over by the unkown networks that you alerted me about. Then allowed for instance skype to create a profile for me on their own. Then Microsoft configured and ran the unknown networks you alerted me about.
