  1. I recently read about Otto Knoke and the Tobi Eye Tracker. Would you consider working on a affordable hearing aid.

    I recently read the article about Otto Knoke and the Eye Tracker.
    After telling me I should wear a earing aid, my Otologist told me the price of good hearing aids. I gasp, and he said something like … It is a shame most people who would really benefit from these thing can't afford them. And there is no more technology in these and a simple cell phone, So, I was just wondering could you create a reasonably price Hearing Aid … so those of us that are missing out on a lot of what is going on around us…

      • Please bring back the iOS app, Write Ideas by Microsoft that was removed from the App Store for iPhones and iPads back to the App Store

        The former iOS app, Write Ideas by Microsoft was a pre-writing tool that used structured prompts and exercises to have guided students through their writing assignments. Essentially it seeked to aid students in overcoming the so-called tyranny of the blank page when getting started in such assignments as book reports, essays, articles, stories, letters, paragraph(s) and etc...

        • Giving microsoft photos the option to have the windows movie maker layout for blind users.

          It would be nice to have the photos app to work or have the option to work just like the old windows movie maker since it was so blind friendly. We could make videos without asking for sighted help back then. Now we have to ask someone to make our videos YouTube ready which doesn't always work out for us.

            • Outlook 2016¸ version 16.0.11029.20045 32-bit braille bug composing new message with JAWS 2018, 2019

              When composing a new email in Outlook 2016 build 16.0.11029.20045, the Cc... appears in cell 19 or 20 (on a 40-cell Focus 40 and 32-cell Brailliant). This is expected to be in the 6th cell when using cells 1-4 as status cells and a space. The behavior on other builds is as expected. There was no CC label at all on 16.0.9029.2167 after we reinstalled using the Offline installer. Updates took us back up to 16.0.11029.20045 and brought the issue back.

              • Outlook iPhone app: improve user experience for VoiceOver users

                Improve the user experience for VoiceOver users in the Outlook iPhone app. Efficient Calendar navigation through future dates is currently not possible. Braille screen input can also be unstable in many situations. Native iOS Mail app currently offers a more reliable experience for VoiceOver users.

                  • Option to lock XAC modifiers

                    Love the Shift command on the XAC. Because I only have use of my head, all my inputs need to come via external switches mounted on my headrest. Since I need to hold the Shift switch down and then press another switch with only my head, I often simply can’t reach that other switch. I can’t hold two switches down at once. But if I could lock Shift (like toggle it on and off), I could press my Shift switch, then my other switch(s), then the Shift switch again. :)

                    • Change XAC profiles with external switch

                      I can’t use my hands at all and do everything with external switches, mounted on my headrest. This limits me to only being able to use four switches. I have a profile for playing racing games and another for navigating the Xbox UI; however, because I cannot change between these profiles, I’m confined to either my game or the Xbox UI. I need a way to change profiles so I can independently use my Xbox. :)

                            • in office 365 word, it would be great if there were schemes for sertain types of writing within pellchecker. this would allow, for exa

                              in word office 365, there could be schemes set up so not all documents are spell checked in the same way. there could be schemes for informal writing, such as a story, where characters don't speak the most concise english, as well as formal writing spell and grammer check too. this would enable users to customise the spellchecker to the task at hand.

                                I am a user of Windows 10. I am also a quadriplegic. Because of that, I use the on-screen keyboard in your “Ease of Access” feature. I’m a slow typist, but the auto-complete helps speed me up – until an apparent update affected word prediction. I used to be able to type “C” & up in the prediction list would be “Candy” then it would suggest “Roper”. Then I would type “P” & “President Bonanza Kennel Club” would follow. With the change that was made, I have to type nearly everything out now. Just for my first name it went…

                                  When installing windows from a flash dive it would be nice to have narrator speak during the windows setup process. This would benefit the blind and visually impaired. Also it would be nice to be able to use narrator while in the bios.

                                      • Cortana enabled mouse

                                        I would like to suggest an improved version of the Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse.

                                        A Cortana enabled version would be great.
                                        The mouse would need a microphone for voice input .

                                        The windows button being clicked on the mouse could trigger Cortana while swiping the Windows button would trigger text to speech.

                                        This currently works, but from long distances away from the computer's microphone it's not the best experience.

                                        If the mouse has a microphone it would work great from long distances also.

                                          I created a new account and now I can't get into it. It tells me my account doesn't exist and that my phone number isn't correct. I had really important information on my One Note and now I can't access it. I would really appreciate if you could help me out here. Thank you.
