It is cumbersome for me to make use of my digits, e.g., fingers, due to scar tissue, and also because of neurological issues; the issues do not however rise to the level of my having a "tick' situation'"; this is more of a cautionary measure, taken, on my part; because I have borne first-hand witness (no pub intended) to individuals having their own circumstances, that are of a far worse sequelae, e.g. post-incident circumstance, than am I; Cf.

Here's an idea for accessibility! How about a COMPANY E:MAIL ADDRESS we can use when our E:Mail address of TWENTY YEARS gets blocked and after MULTIPLE attempts at your " authentication process" and multiple promises (BY YOU) to call with a code, you require me to open another account. Thereby losing ALL my E:Mails (some from deceased relatives) AND my contacts! WTH?2 votes
Today I went through numerous loops trying to speak with a human. FYI......your customer support online options does NOT cover everything. Things need to be less complicated. I tried to speak with someone about my son's account being suspended. His cousin literally logged into his account and sent inappropriate messages to people. I tried finding the call back feature......I can't find it. I tried to appeal the suspension, can't find that option either. Things are too complicated and when calling the toll free number, there should ALWAYS be an option to speak with a human. Online does not always help.3 votes
Timing length for notifications should be in Ease of Access. By the time I have processed a notification it is gone before it sinks in. I think somewhere notification timing can be set... yet I cannot find it when I look for it. It should be in Ease of Access.2 votes
The cursor at the Paint and Paint 3D is very hard to recognize for people with vision impairment We need an option to use an adapted cursor which the user uses with other programs, like Philip's Large Coloured Cursors. http://www.philip-henderson.co.uk/cursor.shtml4 votes
I am practically deaf and rely on hearing aids everyday for general life. I moved across the country and my friends from home and I typically like to game. I haven't come across a good headset that I can hear without turning the volume all the way up. Thats not the problem. The problem is that when I do that, my friends get way too much feedback. I am currently using the Plantronics RIG 800LX (may not be the best mic, but it's always a problem, have had a few over the years). When I turn it all the way up, it's pretty good, but could be better for myself. For my friends not so much, so I end up having to turn my volume down, and then I can barely hear again.
I am getting a new set of hearing aids that will hook up to my TV via bluetooth. They are suppose to be extremely high quality providing the most clarity of hearing aids with this capability. (Phonak Marvels).
It would be really awesome if it were possible to plug in a high quality microphone, such as a yeti or something so that I could keep the mic and headset further away from each other. Really don't want to spend more money on a headset just to be disappointed.

when I inverted colors (black background and white test) the text is low brightness, you need to make it more brightness and higher contrast
when I use a dark mode or inverted color, the text looks like low brightness. from my experience in using Macbook, I solved this problem by calibrated color LCD by increasing the size of "desc" from 98 to 111, and decreasing the size of "dscm" (mluc) from 1050 to 68.
is there any why to have high brightness text like mac?
note* I have very poor vision and I need to use a full-screen magnifier and inverted color mood
more brightness more comfortable and accessable to me.2 votes

Very general question - Is there a way to order the Microsoft cards that say 'Empowerment begins with inclusion'? On the back are 6 ways to create inclusive content in Office 365.

I'm an ATP working with people with complex physical access needs. Can we please have Switch Access to Windows added to Ease of Access?!
While we all love Eye Control and the potential for unlocking people's Access to their computers, Switch and Scan is still a very common method for many users with significant physical disabilities for whom eye gaze technology is not suitable . It's also present and well executed in MacOSX , iOS, and recent Android builds - please add integrated Switch Access to the Ease of Access Center !10 votes
Just sent a simple basic question and Microsoft supported apps and subscription I currently pay monthly fee that I have keep active
Simply, I didn't waste my precious time that I have already wasted and paid over the average cost either and I paid for personally without any support from any organization or support group of any that I qualify to be a member and exceeding the standard of routine process or requirements of all and still am since I handled my basic question? Can I just convert this new pc back to windows 7 and install my chrome browser and apps that I have collected and am familiar and comfortable with using? I am a severe double sided TBI patient with normal cognitive decline and since 2004 with brutal domestic assault that was recorded and multiple incidents prior that was serious and severe and was medically documented injuries and also prosecuted by myself the surviving victim and still no protection and no support that has resulted in positive recovery in independent living or recognized as any achievement and 2014 was start of my challenge to learn and when I learned any new technology and smart phones was advancing rapidly. However my first Twitter person I followed was Bill Gates and updates and his biggest notification and project goal was He couldn't wait to drink/taste human waste. He was successful and I am so dissapointed In this programming of my new pc that I finally was able to get after losing countless devices and trying many that was useless or harmful to my health and life and many were due to factors of my condition and severe TBI patients usually suffer similiar loss or harmful tasks by certain basic activities and isn't any helpful accessibility to them or their quality of life or any future diversity reality for the actual patients or individuals that are involved or included in lives of disabled or affected individuals; however it is unanimously promoted throughout any app or new program that changes and makes prior programs obsolete or no longer able to function with new windows or microsoft edge that I took plenty of pictures and video and it is actual time and tasks that is not needed. Thanks but I took care of this and I am proud of myself JFC and I guess I did learn and retained more knowledge and technical training than I ever hoped or realized. Therefore, please email me and I will be glad to send you copies of info I have and easy accessible. However, please dont waste my time with redundant requests or phone calls that I am so glad I not ever waste time to answer. However, I compliment the disability chat support for actually waiting on my response and reply time, and attempting to contact me and reach out and to adapt and address my concerns or problems I stated I had issues. I don't care for Windows 10 whatsoever since it doesn't include prior Windows version Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 or even prior to any those and makes my prior 1994-1996 college courses completed and paid personally by myself and required to receive any graduate diplomas, certificates, degrees, or credentials by Northwestern Technical College as passing with successful required grades or progressed sucessfully. I had to learn computers and not my choice to pursue and worst dreaded task to me then. I had to learn Network info and I had Windows and DOS programs that had to be learned and all work saved on my A drive disk at school and backup was risky since shared computers and viruses was usual daily matters that lost all work and deadlines wasn;t extended any to allow or support students that had to completely redo all or any work or criteria that classes required for completion and satisfactory standards. Hope Microsoft uses this info to continue growth and diversity they do promote and is their truthful goal they hope to acheive for all humans as equally important and disabled I hope also. If not then I hope someone wasted all this time having to read and then sigh' and delete and hope people like me dont get access to these sites or apps that intelligent and majority are involved in and 2019 April and I am tired also since April 2014 and Googleplus too! And yes I was upset that Googleplus ended and files are deleted and yes i was able to download my data; however I hope I get to actually view it very soon also.
Thanks and have a great day!
ps please ignore any misspelled words or grammar errors I didnt take time to proofread and I havent had keyboard to practice my typing and at least it is my mistakes mostly, unless this new pc has permissions to change words automatically like most phones do now and stupid and tedious repetition that is ridiculuous and even more ridiculois that people have to be ask to perform task ever and no rehabilitation or proper care support recovery therapy will ever ask you to harm your condition worse before you attempt to recover or regain quality of life prior to injury or disease and overcome issues that you would never have been in conflict as normal human in community prior and not involving any experience, education, or training that qualifies professional level knowledge or expertise in field of subjects in society and throughout world as unified nation and third world nations sure will never evolve to progress or exist and shouldn't if this is our future of limited access and forced programs that Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Team strive to accomplish for all and thats opposite of role model and figure I have always admired Bill Gates since I was 8 years old.
Sorry I had to go ahead and give yall that information also.
Thanks and have a great day again!

Every time I am forced to upgrade my OS and often the accessibility software I am using does not support the OS change. I end up having to buy both the OS and the accessibility software. I started way back with windows 3.1 (loved Netscape!) then 95, 98 and now 7 professional. Accessibility upgrades were required 3.1 to 95, 95 to 98 and 98 to 7 professional along with 3 desktop purchases. When is Microsoft going to stop busting my budget with upgrades?3 votes

This probably isn't the best place for this but I just wanted to tell the web developers of microsoft.com, THANK YOU!!! Finally a site with some beautiful options to navigate! I love the "all microsoft" mega menu button and I LOVE the site map! This is a great user experience for ALL users disabled, young, old, etc. It is also great for SEO and accessibility and it is out of the way for those who would rather follow the newer "pathways" strategy of web marketing. I am a developer and my company is trying to 'get rid' of our navigation all together. I have only found it to make finding things much more difficult for older users, and disabled users. So, kudos to you for providing a clean streamlined navigation that offers great UI to ALL customers. Thank you, thank you! Good navigation is hard to find these days.

I am on the autistic spectrum and am having considerable difficulty recovering my password due to how complex and limiting your system is.
Let me be able to deal with a person or contact directly without having to log into my account, as this is the very problem I am having so the system seems broken. Make it easier to recover passwords/access accounts and don't block people out of them for attempting to recover multiple times.2 votes
