  1. Improve screenreader access of Skype for Business

    Skype for Business is curretnly very verbose with a screenreader and has limited keyboard shortcuts. Explore ways to imporve EG don't read out title of conversaton window as arrow between each line in a conversation; make it faster and more reliable to mute and unmute self and to review and manage status of others in a meeting. Make it easier and more consistent to fidn and join meeting from within the applicaton (at the moment join via Outlook meeting is more reliable with a screenreader).

        • Make edge work with Dragon Naturally Speaking

          Many people rely on Dragon Naturally speaking to access there PC. Edge has no support for Dragon so is not usable, the only option is to revert to Internet Explorer.

          Either Edge needs to support Speech recognition programs or Internet Explorer needs to continue to be supported. Otherwise a community of people will not be able to use MS products to access the internet.

          • Scan mode turns on when trying to type into a field on this forum

            When typing into the post your idea edit box on this forum, scan mode will turn back on when typing a character or when arrowing through the edit box. This is in edge with Narrator in the fall creators update. When I select to post a new idea, scan mode behaves correctly in the give details edit box on the next page.

              • PDF Microsoft Edge Accessibility

                Since the fall creators update, when opening PDF's in Microsoft Edge, the background colour has been changed to a light grey. Having a visual impairment, when opening documents which are majority on a white background, the light grey does not provide a very good contrast. Can you consider returning to how it was previously or just simply using a darker grey background for PDF's in Microsoft Edge to provide a higher contrast with the actual document.
                Furthermore, when using read aloud in PDF's, can you allow it to read from where you left click the mouse, the same as online,…

                • Improve focus on Edge's notification bar

                  When the notification bar pops up, i use ALT+N to navigate, then cannot see the focus so I have no idea that navigation was successful. Add color and larger borders to the focus element!

                    • On YouTube with Edge, the player's progress slider is no longer visible if high-contrast mode is active

                      On YouTube with Edge, the player's progress slider is no longer visible if high-contrast mode is active. This happens since a few days ago, when the design of the YouTube HTML5 player changed again. To reproduce this, in Settings -> Ease of Access -> High-Contrast, select the high-contrast black theme. Then open Edge, go to YouTube and select a random video to play. When it starts playing, use the mouse to click on the playback progress bar to fast forward a bit, so the progress indicator from the left end is at least somewhat filled. Previously, the "filling" was visible…
