From September 1st 2018 Microsoft will be retiring Skype 7, ceasing its support and prompting users to update to Skype 8.  Skype 8 features a brand new user interface displayed as a web page inside Google Chrome.  This update represents a significant change for assistive technology and its users, including Guide and SuperNova customers.

At the time of writing, SuperNova and Guide do NOT support Skype 8 and we strongly recommend that Dolphin customers do NOT make the Skype 8 update.  Skype 7 will prompt users to update to version 8 and we recommend users cancel this update. In the meantime Dolphin's development teams are investigating support for Skype 8 and further news will be shared with customers when it becomes available.  Full details and recommendations are available in this new knowledge base article shared by Dolphin's Product Support Team.

Meanwhile if customers have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dolphin's product support teams.
