  8. Kanji

    Can you add a setting to make the type a little larger? When reading Japanese Kanji, especially, it is difficult to discern some of the smaller strokes at the current type size.

    My phone kids me in to Skype.
    My pc Skype is locked and I cannot get in because it was trying to force my to use a Microsoft login not my personal login that I have had since before Microsoft bought Skype.
    The over rigorous ms account security rejects all my answers and days I am not me so it will not send me a new password.
    And so I cannot get in at…

  16. Chat with others with using capture board connected with normal PTZ camera(Not with webcam)

    Most people use webcam for live chat.
    But some place, like where has already camera systems, the user in this place would want to use their camera while using PTZ(Pan/Tilt/Zoom) with capture board.
    In this case, the camera resolution wouldn't be improtant.
    The importan thing would be the compatibility with their camera systems.
    If they use multiple cameras with switcher, that would be very useful.

  17. reciving files with in skype using voiceover for mac, and jaws for windos and NVDA

And correction, it was, and I would like to know why it was taken out? Please by all means, if you would bring this back, that would be really helpful. Thanks.

    Hey this is stephen Owen, some of the hotkeys in skype do not work.

    For instance, opening the main Skype window, it says, four windows, it is not applicable. If someone could fix this, that would be great. and this is for jows and nvda

    another issue, is, the open help and default browser for voiceover for Mac command is not applicable. If someone could fix this, that would be great.

    another issue on the mac side is, opening recent chats, does not work on the Mac. It says that it is not applicable. If someone could fix this, that…

  20. Push-only System Tray Icon

    System tray icon should only be shown to those who allow push notifications This would allow unread message notifications to be shown on the task bar icon again as well.
