  1. For narrator, it might be a good idea to have announcements of individuals typing when in the skype moddern app.

    When using the desktop client for skype with third party screanreaders, there is a notification when in a conversation window indicating when a user is typing. For narrator, as of right now, I do not see this feature and think it would be a much needed implementation in helping Narrator become the screanreader it should be. Love the work so far, however, and am looking forward to seeing more developments and new features!

    • It would be wonderful if we could get a way to completely disable the monitor on laptops (like windows+p used to do on 7).

      All available options currently turn the screen off, but any key press brings it back. Keeping the screen completely turned off is great for us blind users who don't use it at all, since it offers privacy, saves battery, and means we don't need to change brightness settings whenever somebody else needs to use the machine.

      • look at your website

        https://www.microsoft.com/en-sg/store/d/surface-pro/8NKT9WTTRBJK/1QS3

        has a page that has questionable feature listing.
        "• The New Surface Pro produces more sound that Surface Pro 4 (15%) & Surface Pro 3 (30%) "

        Does that mean that the New Surface Pro produces more noise??

        Also, reporting this is difficult as there is no simple email to mail this to. Hence, not surprised that those people whom discovered before I did tried but gave up to inform you guys about this.

            • Great Accessibiltiy Team

              I just want to extend my appreciation to Microsoft for having a team of professionals that provide outstanding support to those of us with certain physical issues. My Hard Drive failed and Microsoft Accessibility team stayed with me and took control of my computer and reinstalled W10. The technicians were friendly, understanding, and subject matter experts and I just wanted to publicly thank them. From an Idea POV, I think it would be a great marketing tool to offer one hour of free support to all authorized users; No one in the Industry is doing that and I think that…

              • narrator on log on screen

                as of now, narrator only starts after typing the password. but I wish, it should launch automatically on log on screen too. I've already enabled start narrator automatically under setting>ease up access center.

                  • for narrator to have more voices like microsoft mark

                    it would be great if narrator had more nachural sounding voices like microsoft mark clear, crisp and easy to understand
                    microsoft mark seembs to be more responsive compared to the other voices.

                      I believe this would be very useful to people like me who don't have any site.

                      • Narrator won't stop reading titles

                        When switching windows or a new one opens, Narrator won't stop reading the title of the window until it has fully read it. When a key is pressed, Narrator won't interrupt itself and keeps reading the title of the window until the title has been fully read. After the title of the window is read, Narrator behaves normally. This also applies to edit fields, or anything with a long title. For example, this very edit box behaves like this. The phrase "Describe your idea" keeps being read, even if I press arrow keys to navigate the text. The update that…

                        • Make Windows10 free for everyone. Keep it simple. Am disabled, got talked out of the Free download.

                          I have an energy deficit disorder. About to give up on the complexity and jargon of Windows and go to Linux if I cant get Windows10 free. It will not download when I tick assistive technologies box. Also I cant get into my microsoft account here and get sent round in circles. I feel like sending a snailmail as this is all so stupidly difficult.

                              Hello
                              I hope you read this email thoroughly.
                              Some time ago, the idea of a gadget came to my mind that it took over from the cloudy space,Which enabled people to store their data where they had full confidence.
                              Of course, there may be some examples of these gadgets in the market, but I'm talking about a gadget with specific features.
                              If you would like to know this idea, I can help you.

                              • The bulgarian voice IVAN spells out unknown words written in latin text

                                The bulgarian voice IVAN, available in the Windows 10 Insider Preview, spells (pronounces character by character) some words. In my observations, those are the words which are written in latin characters but are not strictly in english. For example - my name is Kostadin Kolev and IVAN spells it out character by character, instead of reading the two words as whole words.

                                • The bulgarian voice IVAN pronounces some words incorrectly

                                  The bulgarian voice IVAN, available in the Windows 10 Insider Preview, pronounces some words incorrectly. It inserts small pauses inside the words and it seams that it sometimes stresses the wrong syllables. It is hard to explain, unfortunately. But hear how wrongly it pronounces the word "интервал", for example - it inserts an unnecessary pause between "ин" and "тервал". This word is only an example and it is far from being the only problematic one. I haven't found a pattern (if there is one) for the words which are affected by this, unfortunately.

                                  • Narrator on 64-bit systems should be able to use 32-bit TTS voices

                                    Currently, on 64-bit Windows, Narrator can use only TTS voices that have 64-bit support. Most (if not all) newer voices do have 64-bit support. But there are older TTS voices, that have only 32-bit support. They can be installed on 64-bit Windows and used by programs that support them. But Narrator on 64-bit Windows does not support them and can't use them. The ideal solution would be to ask the developers of the TTS voices in question to add 64-bit support to them. But most of those TTS voices are abandoned (no longer developed) and the chance to get an…

                                      • Change the Conversation Window background on Skype for Business back to white!

                                        Black text on a gray background is MUCH worse for eye strain and visual disability sufferers. It makes the program unusable for folks suffering with this disability

                                        Change it back to white, or better yet make the background color of the conversation window a user setting

                                        • Volume control on your disability answer desk.

                                          Have outgoing volume control on your disability answer desk phones. I have one on my end but find that many techs speak softly or with an accent that makes it difficult to understand. My phone has a volume control which helps. I can't have my hearing aid in due to feedback. Maybe chat would be better but the problem I'm experiencing now is complicated. After spending 30-40 minutes with your disability desk the tech could not fix the problem and suggested I talk to my ISP. If you're interested in DETAILS about the problem I would be glad to provide…
