  1. Coloured icons for Office 365 dashboard tiles

    Could the Office 365 dashboard (online) icons go back to being colourful, instead of one colour as it was a great differentiator for vision impaired users.

    • More and advanced mouse settings (speed and acceleration)

      Hi.

      It would be helpful if there were more mouse settings in Windows - not only in software provided by mouse manufacturer. A possibility to set speed and acceleration to nearly whatever value you need.

      And why do I think it's important?

      There are many people very used to their mouses. To the point when they can't use any other (or can't find any). Sometimes it happens when a person has a disease that changes his or her anatomy. Not every software provides needed options and some old mouses' software doesn't even work anymore.

      It would be just a possibility…

      • I suggest you to introduce a special theme for people with low vision who do not require inverted colors or high contrast. All they need is

        I suggest you to introduce a new special windows theme for people with low vision who do not require inverted colors or high contrast. All they need is larger font sizes and white text on black background. It was very easy to change all the appearances in Windows XP and older versions. However, in newer versions like windows 7, 10 etc. , the blind user has to depend on others to change the appearances in order to begin using the computer. therefore, it would be highly beneficial if an accessibility button is introduced on the desktop so that a user…

            • A live vectroscope

              A vectroscope that you can fullscreen or put somewhere in the corner.

              It's just pleasing to look at, can't find any gadget for it though

                    • Improve the Accessibility of Windows SIM for Screen Reader Users

                      There are two main accessibility issues with the Windows System Image Manager (SIM), part of the Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK). First, when you use your screen reader's right-click function to access the right-click menu for the selected component or package, the click targeting is several lines below where the system focus is located. Additionally, you cannot use Shift+F10 to access the context menu. Could these issues please be remedied? These problems were found in the ADK Insider Preview, Build 16288. I am using JAWS 2018 Public Beta.

                      • Outlook - clearly show destination when moving an email into a folder

                        In Outlook 2013 I cannot tell which folder I am moving an email into. The color options do not provide a clear trail when I drop an email from the Inbox into a folder. I am low vision; if it goes into the wrong folder, I will never find it.

                          I would like to share the points obtained for browsing to charity as the idea of matching the contribution by Microsoft is a wonderful programme.
