  1. Add the option to use pictures for answer choices in Forms

    When considering a Universal Design to Learning approach, the ability to use visuals (pictures) for an answer choice in a form would assist our visual learners and allow for alternate access and assessment. For some students, reading is incredibly difficult without an accompanying visual.

  4. Stop using click here, or here for hyperlinks

    I'm probably posting this in the wrong location but this was the closest forum I could find.
    I want to make an appeal to Microsoft's Accessibillity champions to run some internal training for the folk that prepare Microsoft's web page content and promotional emails. Please teach them how to write effective link text rather than using 'click here' .

    Contextual text links have been a Web Content Accessibilty Guidelines (WCAG) requirement for a very long time now. And giving users an instruction to click something is not inclusive; mobile users tap, keyboard users press enter, etc
    I'm trying to get…

  5. How are we expected to use MS products if everything is going to icon based tools?

    Microsoft has moved to a icon/picture based tool system that is like Chinese to many of us. Why can't we have text discriptions under the icons? I learned to read when I was 4 so I could stop looking at pictures. Now, my damaged brain does not interpret pictures. What is that icon that looks like an old school building? What are 3 horizontal bars? What is the circle with a line off the side? Is it the symbol for No gender? Can I get rid of the styles box? It is distracting my eyes as I look for the…

  7. Microsoft Office 365 videos on YouTube

    We are so thankful for all that Microsoft is doing to make accessibility at the forefront of all of your products! They are amazing. We have noticed, however, that your videos are not able to be followed by folks who are blind because there is little to no spoken word. Because I present on best practices in teaching and using your technology around our university campus, I feel I cannot incorporate your videos into those presentations because they go against the principles of inclusive design. Could you please look into these? I like your videos because they are short and…

  9. Microsoft Translator

    I have just been introduced to Microsoft Translator. It would be amazing if it had the capability to speak the translation of the photo. From what I can see online and in playing with the app on my phone, it only translates it.

    This could be helpful for people who are not literate in their native language, have print disabilities, or who have low or no vision.
    If I have missed this capability, please direct me to how to do this.

  11. Captions in Teams like in Personal Skype

    You recently added real time captioning to personal Skype. As a coder, I have a lot of short meetings on Teams with other developers. As someone with hearing loss and a cochlear implant, it would be great to get captions in Teams meetings.

  15. Disability Answering Desk is wonderful, but Microsoft engineers probably don’t care about PWD. Every time when Microsoft upgrade new version

    Disability Answering Desk is wonderful, but Microsoft engineers probably don’t care about PWD. Every time when Microsoft upgrade new version for many of us everything is so none accessible that we need to call DAD every day beg for help.
    You just implement new upgrade and now many pages are out of normal size of screen. No matter what I did decrease or increase screen it doesn’t help and DAD wonderful people don’t know a solution!

    I attached just few print screens, but I can show you much more. You have still Ronaldo and few others who try very hard…

  16. I do not appreciate getting a call from your company saying you are going to deduct $199.00 out of my bank acct. when I don’t even have that

    I DO NOT appreciate your company calling me and saying you are going to deduct $199.00 out of my bank acct. when I don’t even have that much. I am going to report you to the police. You can’t say it was your company because I called the 1-775-234-0637 back and got your company. You did to my neighbor last week.

  17. WINDOWS 7 - please don’t stop supporting

    Please don’t stop supporting windows 7. Please don’t just think about yourselves. Ok we understand life is not going under us but we are disabled people we are visually impaired people. We only can use WINDOWS 7. Please don’t don’t stop supporting. If you do stop supporting it’s just like locking us in a room without water and bread. Please don’t stop supporting WINDOWS 7. We need windows 7. Life is not easy as yours for us. Please.
