  2. Need assistance with speech. I am a mute. Need anything that helps me speak especially over a phone.

    No category for speech in any Windows program. Need to type and have windows speak without delay and saved phrases. Especially for cell phone use.

  3. Add Text Size Settings in the MSN News App

    As monitors get larger, it's become extremely important to make sure apps have text size settings for those with poor or low vision. A higher resolution screen produces overall smaller elements at its native resolution. There have been a number of threads in the News app section of the Feedback Hub asking for a text size setting. They have been overlooked by Microsoft, or worse, ignored. Readable text is Accessibility 101. We shouldn't have to spend two years begging for this. And it's not something that would be difficult to implement. It's beginning to appear that Microsoft has a bias…

  5. Video demos of egornomic mice at the MS store

    I want to see how people use the mice at MS store. I am used to traditional but have severe arthritis and need to change to a different type of mouse. If you want to sell, why don't you show how the mouse works in a human hand?

  6. Microsoft should launch an insider program for testing text-to-speech features and fixes in Cortana and OneCore speech engines

    Text-to-speech may never be perfect, but why not make it as perfect as possible? Not everyone uses Text-to-speech, so only a few people will be focusing on those features. I propose that an Insider branch be opened for users to communicate directly with the Text-to-speech team, and for the team to send out features and fixes to be tested and commented on by the users. These users aren't just a few who may upvote this issue, they are plenty who use Narrator, Microsoft ReadAloud, and other assistive technologies which use the Microsoft Speech interfaces. In closing, Windows should not only…

  9. Help with the ability to turn off Ease of Access which is holding my screen *******.

    In the Blog there I have been several attempts to solve this problem. However over the years, the links must have been changed because I was able to change to a theme background from the unwanted High Contrast Black, but everthing is surrounded by black with inverted letter colors which are giving me ocular migraines.

  10. how about allowing the public (read that customers) to view and post comments to articlss on msn. Blocking = the opposite of allowing access

    How about restoring the ability to view and share opinions on articles published on msn. If an article is intended to share information or invoke some thought process, why then not allow those reading it to share views and opinions. Have yet to receive an explanation of what is the desired result is which is behind this action. What possible benefit could come from people expressing their thoughts or sharing opinions and ideas as they relate to any given article.

  13. Separate mouse and keyboard options 'Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen

    Under 'Ease of Access' - 'Make the mouse easier to use' the option exists: 'Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen.'
    Under 'Make the keyboard easier to use', there is the same option. Exactly the same. If you tick one and Apply, the other gets ticked. If you untick one, the other is unticked. They are the same option.

    I'm asking that they be separated. I don't want mouse to make window snap to the edges, I'd like to keep full control of where I mouse-move windows to.

    But I'd like to keep…

  14. get the defender team to make defender stop quarantining the speakDropbox.exe screen reader interface I wrote this app, it's not malware.

    speakDropbox is something I wrote that reads allowed the status of the popular Dropbox file sharing application as seen on the system tray. When Dropbox says it's downloading files, speakDropbox speaks that allowed, etc. It can speak using SAPI5 or via most screen readers. For the past 14 days or so it has been getting flagged as malware and is being deleted from everyone's computers. I submitted it for further analysis via the provided form for false positives with microsoft security. The page reports that speakDropbox.exe has no malware in it, but it continues to be deleted by Windows Defender.…

  17. make all quizzes in microsoft rewards accessible to screen readers

    Plenty of blind people are unemployed. Microsoft could easy that a little. Microsoft rewards is a fantastic program where using bing, Microsoft Edge, and completing tasks on the Microsoft Rewards site gives the user points. 1000 Microsoft Rewards points is about equal to a dollar, and those points can add up to a five dollar Amazon gift card, Dominoes gift card, or even a Microsoft Store gift card. There are also sweepstakes for an XBox or Surface device. All these can be frustrating to a blind user when quizzes designed to give users more points are not able to be…

  18. Try working with someone who has both arms and legs amputated

    Hi, I'm an occupational therapist in Reno, Nevada, a professor at the University of Nevada, Reno, and an entrepreneur working to start an adaptive clothing and equipment company. I am excited to see that you have a section of your site dedicated to accessibility. My son recently dowloaded $570 dollars of virtual gaming purchases without my knowledge. I called your help center and you refunded me $499, I wanted to thank you for your forgiveness in this matter and ask for your help in turning a negative situation into one that inspires and supports young people and people with disabilities.…

  20. Create an universal Framework for Accessibility

    We need an universal product that groups all the Accessibility Features together like Microsoft Help. The Universal Tool (potential called Microsoft Accessibility) could collect all the Information (like ShortCut Keys, ...) for different Application (The complete Microsoft Application Stack). In that case, people that have to work with accessibility needed people will find in one place all the needed information to support. Some products produces a "Help" File, "PDF" Keystroke File, Readme, ... . This solution would be a unique all in one place solution.
