  1. 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.

    • 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".…

      • 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.

        • make the BeeLine Reader plugin available for Microsoft Word.

          I currently use the BeeLine Reader plugin for my browser, which helps making dense text passages easier to read. As a legal professional, I would really like to be able to utilize this feature in Microsoft Word but I was told that the plugin architecture does not support BeeLine. Would you please consider adding it? Thank you!

          • 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!
