    Hello,
    https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12025/what-are-hotkeys-and-how-do-i-use-them-in-skype
    Are not very useful commands. Here are the key commands I used in the last version:
    - Answer calls
    - Jump to unread messages

    Neither of these exist in the new version.
    I also really don't like the fact Skype interrupts my system focus when I get a call. Often I am quickly writing and will hangup the call.

    Update:
    1. You need to use the review cursor to read the command line. This is OK, but not novice friendly. There are some programs that allow you to go through and read the text in multiline textbox. A much better application would be if commandline had a read only multiline text box for output and an edit multiline text box for input. See VIP Mud from GMA Games for a fantastic example of how this could be used. This should solve the other problems talked about here as well.

    2. Nano works much better in the Ubuntu release. Every so often, when using right and left arrow to move through text, there will be a repeat of text, so in the phrase "I like cheese", when my cursor moves in front of l, it will say "L I" then when I get to c, it will say "c like". I can't fined a pattern to this, but it is kind of annoying.
    3. The line feed character is missing completely in nano and vim in the ubuntu cli. In Nano, the line feed is two spaces. in Vim, I can't arrow past a line break.
    4. SSH in both Windows and in the Ubuntu command line have a huge problem with cursor positioning. When I press the right arrow key, what is read is not what my cursor is over. In the phrase "I like cheese", if I am at the end and arrow left, I will hear "blank", "s", "e"... I am sure this is a boundary problem. Google Chrome used to have this problem as well and they were able to fix it. This one problem makes nano and vim impossible to use in SSH.
    5. Vim needs a way to toggle on and off line and character numbers. The only way to do this currently is by toggling on and off dynamic changes in my screen reader, which makes the changing output in the console not announce.

    I really like where Windows has gone with Ubuntu for Windows and SSH. I can actually be an effective full-stack developer in windows now.

    The point is that people don't know how to use Narrator and it is too far from Jaws and NVDA to be useful. Jaws and NVDA have a particular feel and people spend years learning how to effectively work with this type of screen reader. Narrator uses something completely different and the user experience is terrible. If you wish to really use Narrator rather than NVDA, please test on at least 30 screen reader users and implement the feedback or get rid of Narrator altogether. No one uses it. It is not recommended for accessibility testing. Government institutions can't use it because it doesn't work well enough for people to use it to work. Please scrap Narrator and use NVDA, or spend another $5000000 to really make Narrator a screen reader.

    Having the ability to type and control my PC through a Braille keyboard on the touch screen would be incredible! The Android based Braille note touch has this ability and it is great. Also, IOS has a lighter version of this.

    Please yes! I am sensitive to light and in the dark the screen is painfully bright, even on the lowest brightness setting. If I could turn off the screen like I could in Windows 7, it would really help. The option is still there, but someone put in a couple lines of code that say if no projector is detected, don't turn off the screen. What was wrong with the Windows 7 design?
    Another check could be if screen reader detected or display is connected, turn off screen.
    Or perhaps Windows+alt+p will turn off the screen. The first time you turn off the screen though, it will give you a warning that turning off the screen is not good for people using the computer visually.
