  3. Word Save dialogue keyboard controls missing

    In Word for Mac (16.41) the opportunity to select any other option than Save (e.g. Discard) has been removed. This may be due to my language version (Finnish), or not, but it used to work, doesn't anymore. Makes keyboard use impossible.

  4. Signature for the blind

    I hope Microsoft would make it possible for blind people to sign the electronic signature on their own.

  5. MS TEAMS desktop app crashes when navigating through channels with NVDA

    Since May 2020, MS TEAMS crashes when trying to select a particular channel within a team using NVDA screen reader.
    For example, if a team contains 3, 4 or more channels, pressing up and/or down arrow in a channel list several times makes Teams application crash and close unexpectedly. It may restart itself (not always) with a following error message:

    There was a glitch, and we had to restart the app. It's good to go now.

    This problem appears in desktop app only at least on Windows10.

    Additional info from Control Panel:

  6. Magnifier's Ctrl+Alt+Scroll wheel functionality needs to be more 'snappy'

    When I use Magnifier with Ctrl+Alt+Scroll Wheell to zoom in and out, there's this weird 'delayed' feeling when using it. I think it's because there is an animation between different zoom levels, and this animation is quite slow. I also wish that zooming in/out was smoother - say you have a trackpad or mouse that supports pixel-precise scrolling. Also, Ctrl+Alt+two-finger touchpad scroll doesn't work

  7. Everytime I get an automatic change/update in programs-Why do I lose my info?

    Every time I get an update, new program, correction from Microsoft,
    Google or Norton Security I lose files, information, passwords, and in general it really messes me up. I am not able to learn or rermember
    as much as , or someone with an average memory (stroke years ago)
    But I know when I've done something to my computer and when changes to the computer have caused problems. My last problem was
    caused (can't prove it) by my website company. They came in to see why my computer wouldn't hold the signal for wi-fi connection I now have lost files,…

  8. Impossible to make the screen automatically turn on in Windows 10 during a Skype call (with automatic call answer)

    I faced an issue with the video conference system I set up for my disabled mother.

    As she is not able to interact with the computer (she is physically and mentally handicapped), I put a video conference system in her room with Skype on Windows 7 PC. I set up Skype automatic call answer and it works automatically when I call her from a remote station.

    Note thaht to make this work the PC is never in sleep mode.
    On the other hand, as the PC is in my mother's room, the screen must turn off after a short time…

  9. Narrator for spin button and <Input type=number> should not announce default min/max values when undefined.

    Currently, if aria-valuemax and aria-valuemin attributes are not defined for an input element, Narrator will announce "Minimum 0 and maximum 0". In the case that there is no functional min/max to be set, this is misleading for users.

    This behavior can be seen in the Value example here:

  11. Windows 10 Magnifier bug

    Since updating to Windows 10 version 2004, there seems to be a bug which is causing the Windows Magnifier to judder/shake as the mouse is moved across the screen, whereas it should be smooth.
    The issue is found when magnifier is set to: Choose a view 'Full Screen Mode' and Keep the mouse pointer 'Within the edges of the screen'. When the mouse pointer is set to 'Centred on the screen' the issue does not occur.

  13. OneNote inaccessible with screen readers

    I have worked with students using OneNote on an iPad with VoiceOver and a laptop with JAWS. In each case, OneNote is nearly impossible to navigate, let alone input any information. I have tried both the online version and the installed versions in both cases. Overall, OneNote is simply not accessible to screen reader users. As a result, teachers and students are required to find workarounds and do a great deal of extra work. Please consider looking into this issue.

  15. Severe eye problems with TOO PALE Word Doc Display

    Dear MS Team,

    I am using Office 2019 and have SEVERE EYE PROBLEMS with detecting any icon on the OPTION BAND of a Word Doc because they are TOO FEEBLY represented (light grey instead of black), they are TOO PALE, especially after working for more than 8-11 hours/day when everything culminates into something blurred, which can only be guessed, e.g., the indentation keys on the ruler are almost NON VISIBLE, the same as anything else on a Word Doc.

    FURTHERMORE: Is it possible to
    - (a) add some additional “L-Ctrl+options” for TEXT COLOUR OPTIONS for a fast change of text-colour…

  17. Activate windows

    Screen is overly bright for normal display but extremely dark for games. I personalized to try an balance, but the second try tells me to activate windows, but it is already activated. Win 10 is not as user friendly as Win 7 and Win 7 was not as user friendly as Win 98.

  18. 1498702417

    I'd like to follow up about my inquiry to include a feature on Narrator to read highlighted text only by pressing a hot key. This feature does not currently exist, but instead, Narrator reads off all sorts of content which is distracting. I simply need to be able to highlight text, press a hot key, and have that text read without the distracting announcements that Narrator produces each time you switch windows, select content, etc. I work on secure computers that don't allow plug-ins or the adding of additional software to enable this capability, and would greatly appreciate… more

  19. Windows 10 magnifier handling multiple monitors

    I really like Windows 10 magnifier. It's lightweight and doesn't stress computers out.

    At office I'm using two monitors and a third party magnifying software (ZoomText magnifier from Freedom Scientific) because I like the handling of two monitors. But this Software requires nearly a gaming rig just to assist me. With my office-PC it remarkably slows me down during my daily work. In addition the fonts in windows apps are processed really bad.

    So my wish to Microsoft is to implement a similar handling of multiple monitors to ZoomText in the same light weight manor as usual.

    I try to…

  20. Automatically enable audio for Hyper-V virtual machines when using screen readers.

    Although I have very limited experience using Hyper-V, my understanding is that audio is not available when connecting to a virtual machine using Hyper-V Manager. I have read about an Enhanced Session Mode, but this must be manually enabled on Windows Server and it does not appear to pass audio back to the host machine unless RDP is enabled in the Windows virtual machine.

    Can you see the problem here? How is a totally blind person supposed to independently configure a virtual machine if audio cannot be used until a setting in the virtual machine itself is enabled? If a…
