    I used to be able to increase text sizes on the toolbar for File/home/insert/design, etc and macro icon toolbar in order to function. I no longer see the feature in Advaned Display Settings. Bring it back.

  4. Publish a quick start book for Windows 10 and Office Apps

    I'm looking for a book with basic instructions on how to use Word and Outlook. I know it is available in the website but a printed material will be better for someone who cannot use the computer for a long time.

  5. i think that word should be free to all windows 10 users

    since we are using windows 10 I think that word should be free to the users. A lot of us love using it but since you have to pay a lot of money which most of us can not do for many reasons I think that it should be free for everyone on windows 10

  6. Accessibility Checker gives warnings for single item lists

    It would be nice if the accessibility checker gave a warning when there is a list that only contains one list item.

    It could be similar to the warnings about "Infrequent Headings".

    I have been remediating quite a few documents where the document creator wanted spaces between list items, but instead of modifying the list style, they put in a paragraph between the list items. Thus, instead of having one list with 20 items, they have 20 lists with one item.

  7. Can't move back a word with Bluetooth keyboard in Word for iPhone

    Hello,

    I would like to report a serious problem regarding Microsoft Word for iPhone using a Bluetooth keyboard and only with VoiceOver enabled.

    It's not possible to move backwards by word because Alt + Left arrow doesn't work, although moving to the next word pressingAlt + Right arrow works okay. Not being able to navigate back a word renders Word useless on iPhone.

  8. Typing accented characters inserts wrong characters in Word for iPhone

    Hello,

    I would like to report a serious accessibility problem regarding Microsoft Word for iPhone using a Bluetooth keyboard and only with VoiceOver enabled. The problem relates to typing of accented characters using the Czech language layout on a Bluetooth keyboard.

    Whenever I want to type a Czech character which requires first to press the diacritic mark key (i.e., accent "'" or caron "ˇ"), and then to type the letter key which should receive the diacritic mark, such as "d" to become ď, Microsoft Word instead inserts a wrong character. To be specific, it inserts just "ˇ" instead of "ď".…

  9. Dyslexic interactive

    I feel that being able to verbally interact with Windows would have a powerful effect on a dyslexic senior ability to engage in word!
