  1. 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?

  3. Allow Change How Your Mouse Works in Ease of Access on the login page.

    Children in schools are blocked from accessing the Control Panel settings for various reasons. Therefore, on their own, they cannot change the tiny default mouse pointer to, let's say, Extra Large Black without have an IT Tech come out and login as an Administrator and make the change. This is very important for children with low vision since they often loose the location of the pointer. On the Login screen of Windows 10 you already have an Ease of Access button that allows anyone to use Magnifier, High Contrast etc., prior to login. Please also add the ability to make…

  4. 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.

  7. Use of Dynamic Text type in Microsoft Apps for iOS

    As a visually impaired person, I'm using Apple's in built dynamic text type, setting it at it's largest setting. However some Microsoft apps do not respond well to this. For example, in Cortana for iOS, the weather card is so long as I have the description say "Mostly Cloudy" with each individual letter on a new line pushed up to the right hand side with large amounts of white space. In OneDrive for iOS, the share feature to upload content is a pain, with folders overlapping, and hard to click even the right account. And on the new Edge for…

  10. 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…

  12. 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:

  16. 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…

  18. 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…
