Is the Skype 8 we are discussing here the same as Skype for Business?

There are lots of new skype keystrokes and some also that are added with the
release of JAWS 2018 and 2019. Now remembering them all is another story.
I know I tend to remember those I need at a certain time rather than just
memorizing them all.
If you go to the help on skype or what's new with JAWS 2019, you should find
a large table of both the Skype and JAWS keystrokes in Skype 8.

We are being migrated to Skype 8. Microsoft has made accessibility
efforts, and there is JAWS support for it. You want to avoid the Skype
app, as distinct from the Skype 8 Desktop app.

Good morning all;
on behalf of a client,
my client is running jaws19, windows10, and skype classic, is there a
way to stop the program from asking to be updated to the latest
I went into tools, options, advanced,
didn't see no checkbox for not allow skype to update.

The impossible is the untried, Never under estimate the power
of a dream.
