Portable Skype Talking 0.9.6

Enables you to launch Skype, initiate conversations and get alerts related to status changes or received messages using the screen reader's API
Portable Skype Talking can provide you with sound notifications about various Skype events, enabling you to hear about new calls, status changes or received messages without having to interrupt your work.

Get out-loud notifications from Skype

As soon as you run it, the application launches Skype without you having to lift a finger. Making use of your screen reader's API, it lets you know about each action it performs, reading alerts and messages.

The application runs silently in the system tray, enabling you to access its functions using the right-click context menu. Here, you can configure its behavior, customize alerts and modify the speech rate and volume.

You can configure it to notify you about newly received and sent chat messages, changes in the status of your contacts or your own account, modifications in the mood text of a user. It can be set to speak the message and the contact name out loud, so that you can learn about an event even if you are in the next room.

Manage contacts and send SMS messages

Portable Skype Talking comes with an integrated Contacts Manager that you can use to view the status of your friends (online or offline) and quickly initiate a call or a conversation. In addition to this, you can use the built-in SMS wizard to quickly send a message to one or more phone numbers via Skype.

For easier control, the application features customizable hotkeys that can help you perform various actions in Skype using simple key combinations. For instance, it enables you to answer a call, change the current status, view the current user status, hang up, switch between messages and voicemail, mute the microphone, repeat the last event notification and so on.

A portable tool that provides outspoken alerts for Skype

As its name implies, Portable Skype Talking is a special version of Skype Talking that does not require installation, so you can launch it from a removable drive and use it on the go.

It can prove useful to any Skype user, allowing them to focus on their work while also finding out about important events in Skype thanks to the out-loud sound notifications.
