  2. MICROSOFT WANTS ITS USERS TO STOP USING INTERNET EXPLORER AND USE MICROSOFT EDGE INSTEAD. FOR ME I THINK THIS IS A VERY BAD IDEA.

    INTERNET EXPLORER IS A HUNDRED TIMES BETTER, EASIER & FASTER THAN EDGE. IT ONLY TAKES ONE OR TWO CLICKS TO DO MOST ANYTHING WITH INTERNET EXPLORER.
    SOME OF THE MANY FEATURES NOT AVAILABLE ON EDGE: 1. FAVOURITE BAR ICONS & ADDRESSES IN ONE CLICK. 2. FILE, EDIT, VIEW, TOOLS, HELP, AND ALL THE MANY OPTIONS AVAILABLE IN EACH OF THESE MENU. 3.PAGE WITH THE OPTIONS TO SEND THE PAGE OR LINK THROUGH OUTLOOK EXPRESS WHICH GIVES EMAIL ADDRESS OF THE RECEIPIENT WHEN THE FIRST LETTER OF THE RECEIPIENT IS TYPED. MICROSOFT HAS MADE EDGE AS A REPLICATION OF GOGGLE CHROME…

  3. Linkedin needs a dark mode

    I mostly work in React, which is easy to do theming on. I don't know what you have this written in, but, it's really hard for people like me to look at the white backgrounds on this app for extended periods of time.

    By definition "scrolling through lists of jobs" is a browse-heavy experience, and using your website makes my eyes hurt a lot.

  4. Buenos días " Nuestra mesa de respuesta para discapacitados"

    En la ventana de entrada a accesibilidad dice "Nuestra mesa de respuesta para discapacitados" el termino esta incorrecto, lo correcto debería ser Nuestra mesa de respuesta para PERSONAS CON discapaciDAD. Caso contrario invisibiliza a la persona.

  7. I am non-verbal and need text-to-speech in Teams

    I have had a bit of an issue adjusting to Teams as I am non-verbal and there is no feature I can find for doing text-to-speech and doing things through speakers doesn't sound through well, so I am kind of stuck apart from just sending writing which people don't really read and it can be a very disheartening and I just want to work out a way to get a bit more involved and a text-to-speech feature would really help with that. It would make me feel a lot more included and make Teams much more accessible for me.

  9. Immersive Reader in PowerPoint

    There were a lot of announcements last year about Immersive Reader coming to PowerPoint, tonnes of demo vids etc, but for the life of me I can't find it. Is it still due for release?

  10. Bugs With Windows Eye Control

    They are some keys on the Windows Eye Control that don't generate the correct scancodes, which don't work with certain applications that expect correct scancodes. For example, pressing F11 on most browsers will bring the browsers fullscreen. F11 key (along with many other keys) are broken. They send the correct virtualkeys but not scancodes.

  11. Allow the users to select the sequence of Licences and certifications completed by the users.

    Hello Team LinkedIn,
    I had a suggestion that you guys should allow the users to select the sequence of the Licences and certifications completed by the users on his LinkedIn profile or atlest allow the users to pin one or two certifications on the top in Licences and Certifications Section. It would be a great help.
    Thank you

  12. Develop Microsoft OneDrive, OneDrive for business and sharepoint site for Linux

    Please develop/release onedrive and sharepoint document sync apps for Linux to work with Linux native file managers. Releasing MS Teams for Linux has given me hopes that we will hopefully see other apps follow.

  13. Notification sounds for each app

    Is there an option to change the notification sound for a specific notification sender in Windows 10 PC Version?

    For example, I would like the Calendar program play a custom, "Appointment due", but for Mail, "You have mail", Security and Maintenance play an "Alert" sound, etc. similar to how it can be done in Win 10 Mobile. It will be a great feature, cause I will know what notification I got, when I'm not close to my laptop and instead of running unnecessary, I will know just with the sound

  14. Outlook iOS App undo after swipe actioni steals focus

    In Outlook for iOS with VoiceOver enabled. Very recently (this week). When going through one's inbox of messages and flicking up/down then selecting an action (e.g. Read & Archive). The VoiceOver cursor goes back to the next message, but then quickly changes focus to "Undo Archive".

    The problem this causes is wasted time when archiving messages to clean up a mailbox

    Acceptance:
    - When a user archives or deletes from a swipe action item the VoiceOver cursor should go to the next message so the user can continue to review their mailbox quickly.
    - For undo the user should be…

  15. Xbox Series X/S - Audio Balance For Hearing Impaired

    I am partially deaf in one ear and currently struggling with audio balance on the Xbox Series X and I know many other hearing impaired people are also struggling with the lack of an audio balance slider.

    This could easily be solved for the Xbox with the addition of a left/right audio balance slider.

    Microsoft has been really great with so many accessibility features but there is pretty much nothing for the hearing impaired.

    Many other Microsft devices along with most other platforms already have this feature and surely it can't be that hard to introduce.

    As I am partially…

  16. High Contrast

    This page is easier to read than most. Turning on high contrast does not help to darken the print on screen. Web searches show many people have trouble with print on screen that is too light. Many elderly people have trouble. It would be helpful if Microsoft could provide a facility for darkening the print without having to go to Microsoft support. Offering white on black is not a solution.

  17. Provide Another Way to Open the Reading Order Pane

    The addition of the reading order pane is excellent and including numbers to show the order (as well as listing it from top to bottom) is much easier than using the selection pane. However, it appears as if the only way to open the Reading Order pane is through the accessibility checker. That is not helpful unless something is flagged by the accessibility checker. I copy and pasted a placeholder on to a slide. The placeholder was added to the end of the reading order as is typical. However, it was not flagged by the accessibility checker so I could…

  18. We had a teams meeting with an accesibility-expert (who is blind). He wanted to share his computer audio while sharing a screen.

    We had a teams meeting with an accesibility-expert (who is blind). He wanted to share his computer audio while sharing a screen. He could not find the checkbox for 'sharing computer sound on'. Make sure it is accesible for screen-readers.

  19. how do I print in black with white background when I use grey with white text on my screen?

    Using white text on a dark background is very helpful to low vision people - but when I want to print something, I frequently cannot print black text on white background by default - how can I do this?
