Hello everyone! I noticed that the latest version of Skype, 8.51, works harder both with JAWS and NVDA. When I open a chat window, it takes a while to load. Skype often crashes and a not responding message is displayed.
Other Romanian friends told me that they have this problem too. Do you encounter it? If yes, have you repported it to Microsoft up to now? I haven't done it yet, but I'll do it unless Microsoft fixes it in the next Skype release.

Yeah, it's happening to me as well.

But now they rest with me.
I'll never forget how I felt that moment

I'm the captain of this ship,
don't worry about the little clicks,
Everything is working fine,
nevermind that audible whine.

Report it, as many of you as you can. There has already been one update and this was not fixed, so we need to be active. Talk to the disability answer desk, submit feedback through both Skype and Microsoft's accessibility forum.

Is there a Skype setting to disable the automatic update feature?

No. It is a web app, and it will auto download the latest version at some point. The only thing you can do which is what some people are doing is to install the old version, and each time before you run Skype delete the downloaded setup file which is in app data so Skype cannot reinstall it on launch.

Hello guys!
The issue got fixed in Skype 8.52, released the last night. I no longer encounter it.

Awesome. I hope I will get the update soon and it will indeed be fixed.

i think thats not true. for me it still Works harder. i have to wait few seconds, when it switches to active contacts.

f.a.t.h.e.r

I can confirm that as well. Still those annoying problems do exist in the latest 8.52. To avoid that, I was forced to go back to 8.41 which luckily I haven't deleted its setup file.

Yep, it's still broken, and at this point probably will be forever. This honestly sucks, I somewhat got used to the lag when opening conversations, but more annoying is the lag when scrolling through messages in a large unread conversation.

Ditto. Skype is still just as slow and laggy. Does anyone have a link to the last version that worked normally?

The Beast adopted new raiment and studied the ways of Time and Space and Light and the Flow of energy through the Universe. From its studies, the Beast fashioned new structures from oxidised metal and proclaimed their glories. And the Beast’s followers rejoiced, finding renewed purpose in these teachings.
