  1. 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…

  5. Key Binding

    When purchasing a windows 8 computer, you will see some keys that don't work anymore on the windows 10 operating system. Please add a bind keys option to assign keys on the keyboard to do a action or open a app

  6. I am photosensitive. Extremely sensitive to light, so I prefer dark screens. Allow more darkness via a secondary program.

    I am photosensitive. Extremely sensitive to light, so I prefer dark screens. Allow more darkness via a secondary program.

    Blue colors are higher in energy, thus photosensitive people don't want the screen dark only, but brown-yellowish to cut-off the high frequencies.

    My intelligence is normal and I use the Photoshop for short periods.
    When I finalize a picture, I usually keep it dark, but without that brown-yellowish effect in order I control the output. So an on/off button to the high-cut filter (or blue cut-off filter) would be useful.

    People are photosensitive due to:

  8. Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop needs ergonomic number pad.

    We purchased one of these kits and have found that the numeric pad being separate is in no way ergonomic laying flat on the table and moves easily when being used resulting in a lot of errors which for us as accountants is a big issue. The existing number pad in the kit appears more like an after thought given the attention to design put into the keyboard itself.

    My Samsung S7 phone has a microphone symbol on its soft keyboard and does a great job entering words that I speak to email or text msg about anywhere. I have ALS and this feature on W10 would be a great help.

  10. Have a Special Education Teacher on your design and development team

    As a special education teacher, I have several ideas for using your products in a classroom with students with a variety of disabilities. If myself or another special educator could help with design and development of programs and accessibility of those programs, we could really reach the school-age population and provide them tools to be successful!

  11. There should be localized versions of this page

    This website would be very useful for people with disabilities around the world if it was available in more languages by changing the en-us in the URL to for instance de-de for German, like with many other Microsoft webpages.

  12. 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…

  18. Eyesight is not good. I have custom fonts and they are very large. The Microsoft Accessibiity page is the first page to be really off...

    Having these light bacground pages causes my vision to be worse, making my eyes burn as being light blinded. High Contrast can help temporarily but even those settings can hurt eyes after a little while. The pages seem shiny. What we need is a matte finish with a slightly duller color. Say gray or light brown. I'm pretty partial to a light wine or rust color. Eyes feel better on other pages that I am able to do Custom, the way I like.
    I'm sure everyone is different, but it's nice that you work at trying to help us. I…

  19. Contacted Windows help today. Virtual help is no help at all. Second had chat with agent for problem. #1409556662, cannot connect bluetooth.

    Was sent to a site called PC First aid. Did this a few weeks ago to up date my drivers. Purchased what I thought was a years service. They want more money to up date my drivers again, they are supposed to keep them up dated for a year. What kind of scam are you runing?

  20. You are not providing support for dyslexics

    I am a Windows software developer, but I am also mildly dyslexic. A friend of mine is very dyslexic and has an even bigger problem than I do with this issue.

    One of the hallmarks of dyslexia is we navigate the world through patterns and when the patterns change, it messes up our world. Whenever Microsoft changes interface on programs or Windows, it messes me up until I learn the new patterns. When I'm working, it cuts my productivity in half for weeks.

    I tend to stay well behind the software release curve because of it. I still use Office…
