  1. Edge/Narrator reads hidden inputs and buttons

    Edge: Version 80.0.361.66 (Official build) (64-bit)
    OS version and Build: 1803, 17134.1304

    Narrator reads hidden buttons in Microsoft Edge

    The following link is a test page on Codepen.io
    https://cdpn.io/JasonAment/debug/OJVEZNp

    Example (in the carousel) from the Microsoft News Site:
    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/coronavirus

    Repro steps:
    1. Enable Narrator
    2. Open either link in Edge (tested in chromium)
    3. Read the page items using CAPS + Right Arrow

    Expected: Buttons and inputs with aria-hidden="true" are not read or encountered with the screen reader.

    Actual: The buttons and inputs with aria-hidden="true" are not hidden from assistive technology.

    Note: This doesn't occur in Chrome, Firefox or IE11.

  3. On the latest Edge, please return "tabs set aside" to legacy UX

    In the original consumer Edge version, the "Set aside tabs" UX was perfect. In the latest Edge, could you please replicate that experience? Thanks!

  5. read out loud for PDFs

    Please make the new Edge also read PDFs out loud. I miss this feature daily. It is really a pity that this feature got lost from the "old Edge"

  6. tab close

    we have the problem that the tab in Chrome Edge closes automatically when you open a document from a Sharepoint 2013 library. The sharepoint page runs in Internet Explorer mode. Unfortunately, a reinstallation of the Edge Browser has not been successful to solve the issue. We use Windows 10 1909 Enterprise. Any ideas regarding this problem

  8. Give me back my last Edge!

    Nothing works the way it used to. I shouldn't need to up lode all my favorite website's. And where's the scroll bar? I'm having to contently hit the down arrow to get anywhere. This is a update? I think you took a step back.

  9. Allow user to change Folder icons (in the Favorites bar).

    I have organized all my favorites in a folder structure in the Favorites bar. Essentially my Favorites bar is a string of folders and all folders look the same as they all have exactly the same icon. It is very hard to pick the right folder intuitively. I either have to remember where approximately the folder is that I want to click or I have to read multiple folder names every single time until I found the right one. Which of course takes a little time at every occasion.

    Therefor, I would like to be able to change the default…

  10. Edge/Narrator: Page doesn't scroll when user navigates in item mode

    Edge: Version 81.0.416.53 (Official build) (64-bit)
    OS: Windows10
    Across all the webpages, the screen doesn't scroll when user navigates in using Caps+ Right arrow.
    Repro steps:
    1. Enable Narrator
    2. Open Microsoft.com
    3. Turn off the scan using CAPS + Spacebar.
    4. Read the page items using CAPS + Right Arrow.
    Expected: The page scrolls as user navigates with assistive technology
    Actual: The page doesn’t scroll. The low vision users who use assistive technology will get confused and lose their navigation on the page.
    Note: This doesn't occur in NVDA/Chrome, NVDA/Firefox or JAWS/IE11.

  11. Keep aside tabs

    Bring back the function to keep tabs a side so that it is easy to manage sessions based on content being worked upon.

  12. Improve high-contrast support in Chromium-based Microsoft Edge

    I see that in v81.0.366.0 of Chromium Edge the high-contrast mode support is enabled by default. There are a few bugs in it, which I would like to report:


    1. The icon with the 3 vertical dots for the "Actions Menu" button for each video (e.g. on the YouTube home page) is missing, making the button practically invisible when using a high-contrast black theme. This is not the case with the old/legacy/EdgeHTML Microsoft Edge.


    2. The icons for buttons such as "Like", "Dislike", "Share", "Save", etc. (located under a playing video) are missing, making the buttons practically invisible when using a high-contrast…

  13. Great Edge update!

    Thank you for the update, as the improvements are highly noticeable and almost extraordinary. I just hope that it stays consistent in everywhere that I travel throughout the World Wide Web!

  16. Microsoft Edge and Photos on Linux

    I understand that making a DEB Package is downright frustrating and discouraging , when big companies are told about Linux , they go straight to making DEB Packages but there are very easy ways to port to Linux .

    If you just create a working Tarball made inside a Linux Environment and send it to the major Repository Maintainers , they can do the rest .

    The Major Repository Maintainers in the Linux World are openSUSE , Arch , Red Hat Enterprise , Linux Mint , Mageia , Debian , Solus and Ubuntu .

    If you want to reach out…

  17. Make Edge voice compatible like the dying Internet Explorer!

    MAKE the new Edge browser work with Dragon NaturallySpeaking as well as Internet Explorer does!
    Please, please, either 1) bring the Edge browser with the added Chrome extensions from Nuance up to the level of voice functionality of Internet Explorer or 2) reinstate full support for the older Internet Explorer browser. Microsoft and Nuance need to work out the solution and implement it instead of saying the problem lies with the other company. But now I am using the Firefox browser because it is more voice friendly than the Edge browser. Firefox is not as good as Internet Explorer, but…

  18. Microsoft Edge print screen has unconventional option to close or dismiss

    The PRINT screen for Edge has an annoying format. The print dialog does NOT have a close button "X" in the upper right of the window. The user is forced to close an unwanted print dialog using a CANCEL button at the bottom of the dialog or window. Why is this frustrating?

    FIRST, it is unconventional. Most print dialogs have a close button at upper right of window. Microsoft apps use the backdoor under FILE to print, but the edge print option differs from the appearance of a Microsoft Application such as WORD.

    SECOND, it is easy for the user…

  19. Edge needs to have customizable 'new tabs' - This is absolutely ridiculous

    Are we really living in a world where a non-bloated basic-functioning internet browser DOES NOT EXIST?

    I was enjoying my first day on Edge until I realized I can't set what page my new tabs go to. Seriously? This is day-one stuff.
