      Unfortunately, this feature is not supported in Skype 8.

      I recommend you to send feedback to developers and ask them to implement this feature in the new Skype. Please read here how to do it.

    Henry Kamphof,
    Hi Microsoft,

    This version of Skype was just downloaded about several hours ago.

    It is sad to report that this version is still not compatible with Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 15. I have brought this to the attention of Skype on at least 6 occasions and have spoken to Microsoft officials.

    Please give me a call as to when these 2 programs will be compatible at 3***9

      Hello! Please note that this is an unofficial blog of Skype, and I do not work either at Microsoft. Therefore, if you want to send feedback to Skype developers, use the built-in form or visit official site.
