What is SkypeTalking?

SkypeTalking is software that functions as a plug-in for Skype. The plug-in works in conjunction with the user’s default screen reader. Basically, the plug-in lets the user know when there is an incoming Skype message, Skype call, and also changing statuses, file transfers and other Skype alerts through voice alerts.

This utility is generally utilized by users with visual problems, where reading whatever is displayed on the monitor is difficult for them. The plug-in utilizes the Skype API (application programming interface) so that it can communicate with the screen reader, through the reader’s own API.

Upon installation, the user will be prompted that Skype will shares its API with SkypeTalking. The user is advised to permit this so that the plug-in can function properly.

The plug-in can also be utilized by users who wish to be alerted about incoming Skype messages and other alerts without having to monitor their Skype window. This enables them to continue with their computer activities, while also being updated about incoming calls, messages and the like.

SkypeTalking is provided as freeware under the GNU GPL v2 license.
