  3. Improvements to On-Screen Keyboard

    Here are a few suggestions for the on-screen keyboard:

    -allow users to add words to the dictionary
    -add functionality for "abbreviation expansion" (allowing users to type a few letters that automatically expand into a longer string, such as an e-mail address or phrase)
    -allow users to customize the layout and color scheme
    -improve word prediction by learning the user's writing style
    -emoji!

    Thanks!

  4. Add Circle (shapes?) and Highlight Text (Straight Line)

    The snipping tool is such a great tool! Its gets used numerous times a day, but it is missing just a few critical items.


    1. Add the ability to draw a circle (shapes in general?) so that we can draw attention to clicking somewhere etc.


    2. Add the ability to highlight in a straight line. I cannot keep my mouse straight as i highlight which looks unprofessional.


    3. Add the ability to add text (text boxes?)

  5. Use NVDA instead of Narrator to install Windows 10

    I want to be able to use NVDA during Windows 10 Installation because Narrator is sometimes lagging or doesn't read all Information that's being displayed on the Screen.

  9. 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!

  10. Extend access to Windows 10 for the disabled.

    Microsoft should extend free access to Windows 10 for the disabled and give clearer notice of its expiration. There are many disabled who were unaware of the deadline. Windows 10 has additional features for helping disabled persons. In addition, it is clearly in Microsoft's interest to have as many people using Windows 10 as possible.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  20. 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…
