  1. WCAG 2.2.2 - Skype does not give the option to pause, stop or hide GIF images

    Hello,

    One of my coworkers finds it extremely difficult to use Skype due to the nature of the GIF images. They play incessantly and he cannot stop them. There is no mechanism to Pause, Stop or Hide the content. He has resorted to using this method to push the GIF out of the viewport:
    [ animated GIF viewport scuttling message ]
    [ animated GIF viewport scuttling message ]
    [ animated GIF viewport scuttling message ]
    [ animated GIF viewport scuttling message ]

  2. Ability to set up someones preffered disability settings when sending an email to them

    My daughter is visually impaired so she needs to have text in size 24 and Arial Black but I need to manually amend my email to these settings each time I email her. I therefore think there should be a way of setting my settings for an individual i.e. if I know Holly needs in size 24 and Arial Black whey can’t my O365 remember that and when I put here email address it does it not automatically set these settings.

  5. I am extremely disappointed and annoyed at the lack of help I received from Marilou when I called her on 14 May.

    I am extremely disappointed and annoyed at the lack of help I received from Marilou when I called her on 14 May.
    Over the past more than 15 years I have always had excellent help from all of your team dealing with disability issues. In fact I have sung your praises to many about how all of your staff have always gone out of their way to help and resolve any problems.
    Unfortunately, this cannot be said for this agent.
    I have never had the misfortune of such an unhelpful agent, who refused to listen to my problems with ms…

  10. Improve ability to differentiate between small office icons on taskbar

    I'm partially color blind, and the new modern icons, when used as "small icons" are very hard to differentiate at a glance as they all use a similar color scheme. Yes, they have different icons and letters, but they blend in. Perhaps there is a way to add alternate taskbar icons with different colors to help differentiate between Teams, Outlook, and Word at a glance.

  11. Setting timing length for notifications should be in Ease of Access

    Timing length for notifications should be in Ease of Access. By the time I have processed a notification it is gone before it sinks in. I think somewhere notification timing can be set... yet I cannot find it when I look for it. It should be in Ease of Access.

Dankzij de Xbox One en de Party's heb ik dat op kunnen bouwen, de hoeveelheid prikkels die ik kon verwerken. Eerst 1 op 1 en een party en game, daarna 1 op 2 in de party steeds meer mensen en enzovoort. Begon met een paar minuten en dat steeds langer. Maar werd ik moe in mn hoofd of werd het te druk kan ging ik eruit en…

  13. Make the vertical lines in Explorer separating the lists of folders and files more distinct and wider to help an aging demographic.

    Make the vertical lines in Windows Explorer separating the lists of folder and files more distinct and wider. Similarly for the list of programs on the Windows 10 desktop where the vertical lies separating the panes are even more narrow. Likewise for other Windows products. This would assist those with vision and motor control problems.

  15. My ideas is the pop up message is not from Microsoft but from the vision assistI

    I have vision assist on my PC, Windows 10 and Microsoft has been very patient with my issues they are greatly appreciated. Every time I have an issue which is many, many times. My computer works really well afterwards then wham I get this popup box telling me that I cannot use EDGE with vision assist and I have to change my default to Internet Explorer and Download Adobe Reader Viewer as default. I an down load Adobe Reader ID 5507 but it will not install on Windows 10. I don't think Microsoft would tell me to download/install where is…

  16. Hard of Hearing, Microphone only input.

    I am practically deaf and rely on hearing aids everyday for general life. I moved across the country and my friends from home and I typically like to game. I haven't come across a good headset that I can hear without turning the volume all the way up. Thats not the problem. The problem is that when I do that, my friends get way too much feedback. I am currently using the Plantronics RIG 800LX (may not be the best mic, but it's always a problem, have had a few over the years). When I turn it all the way…

  17. when I inverted colors (black background and white test) the text is low brightness, you need to make it more brightness and higher contrast

    when I use a dark mode or inverted color, the text looks like low brightness. from my experience in using Macbook, I solved this problem by calibrated color LCD by increasing the size of "desc" from 98 to 111, and decreasing the size of "dscm" (mluc) from 1050 to 68.
    is there any why to have high brightness text like mac?

    note* I have very poor vision and I need to use a full-screen magnifier and inverted color mood
    more brightness more comfortable and accessable to me.

  19. Retinitis Pigmentosa

    I have a friend that has retinitis pigmentosa, the only way she can work on the computer is if the application or software program she is working with can be modified to have a black background with white text and the text size should be adjustable if this would be a windows theme it should carry across all software applications including web browsers, not just edge but whichever browser that particular person has chosen.

    Like now. if I turn on high contrast I can not see the text I have typed, because the theme does not carry through all aspects…
