  4. Hi I’m Patrick Lafleur and I’m in a group home called nova salus

    Hi, I’m in a group home called nova salus https://www.novasalus.ca/
    My dr is dr Jose mejijia. At the iwk https://medicine.dal.ca/departments/department-sites/psychiatry/our-people/faculty/jose-mejia.html

    I was born with ticks and turrets. It’s a movement that you can’t control. If you still don’t now what that is. Look it up on mental health. I have a YouTube channel, that inspires people on what they can do with a disability and moving forward. I would like an Xbox to show people and not just show, to inspire people what you can do with the power of the Xbox. Thank you so much for reading this. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChndT1pE7YxO-fZoeQVmnfg

  5. Please stop removing sound effects from Windows!

    As a totally blind person, I depend heavily on audio cues to tell me what is going on so sounds like the Windows shutdown sound and the device connect and disconnect sounds for printers are sorely missed. Honestly, wouldn't it have been easier to just turn those sounds off by default, and leave the option there for those customers who want or need them?

  6. System idea

    I think a nice feature for the Xbox community would be to allow group chats. Rather than only being able to send messages to one friend at a time or send them when your all in a strict party. But to allow a group messaging with select friend whenever. We already have the accessibility to message and create looking groups . And join parties so why no have access to group chats

  7. Microsoft cares nothing about customers. You know you have a problem with Skype for Business automatically launching at Start Up. ****!

    Microsoft knows they have a problem with Skype for Business launching automatically at start up, and they do nothing about it and offer NO support to disable or delete from Office 365. Very frustrated! I've tried everything, Skype still launches.

  8. Improve narrator support for lists

    When encountering lists with multiple columns, narrator either reads the first item in the column, or nothing at all. As an example, open the msinfo32 System Information utility from the run box or start menu and tab to the list view. Pressing down arrow causes Narrator to speak "OS Name 1 of 42 selected". If this same list is read with NVDA, it speaks all the information. In this case, it would say Windows 10 Home, Professional, Enterprise, etc. In order to receive the same information with Narrator, it is necessary to press Narrator and the right arrow to move…

  9. Instead of zoom disables game essential actions that I have tried to turn off and can’t. Increase text size in games Print is too small

    Zoom is almost impossible to turn off I would rather see personalized increase in fount because most games I just can’t read from my bed that is not too far from my tv.

  10. Make it possible to turn URLs in comments on LinkedIn into meaningful links

    I posted on LinkedIn about accessibility, and when friend shared my post, I commented to provide a link to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/learn/paths/accessibility-fundamentals/?source=learn. Given that the best practices in module 3 mention properly titling links, rather than leaving the URLs, it was particularly ironic there was no way to do that in my comment, or even to be sure it would show as a link once I posted it. Though it does show as the link after posting, I still can't add a proper link title if I edit the comment.

  11. Please bring back set aside tabs

    Hi,

    Can you please bring back the set aside tabs function of edge. I have ADHD, Autsim and more only diagnosed in the past few years (I'm 42) which affect my working memory in particular, as well as general organisation and feeling overloaded.

    Despite not knowing why I found things hard, I still managed to get through uni and become a teacher.

    When I'm on a roll researching something, I'll flit from one page to another as I often research one part of a topic and read what multiple people say about the same thing. (When I was younger I…

  12. screen reader picking up chat box messages during Teams meetings

    Hi there,

    In a recent video meeting via Teams- a participant's screen reader (NVDA) was not able to pick up/notified when there were new messages written by other participants in the chat box. Their screen reader did pick up when someone had a raised hand, but not when there was a new message. Can you provide any advice on this?
    Thanks

  13. Fix the Teams transcription tool

    Please fix the transcription tool in Teams! It garbles sentences and inserts bizarre words into the transcripts of Teams meetings, making it useless as an accessibility aid.

  14. Layout options modern websites

    Hi,

    Can you please have an option to view your products as a list, or more smaller icons on one page. I have multiple conditions affecting my executive function, Autism being just one of them, and I get overwhelmed having to continuously scroll.

    I never used to have this problem as online stores and websites used to have these options. Unfortunately modern websites seem to be getting rid of them so like many things in this modern world, I haven't changed, but the way information is presented has therefore being just one more item in a list that makes day…

  16. Windows 10 must have a consistent design.

    Windows 10 must have a consistent design. Like in explorer we have a different design, in the start menu we have a different design and edge also has a different design, and its too dumb to have three different designs in spite of the fact that all these products belong to Microsoft. Seems that Microsoft is confused in itself.

  18. Unable to see shutdown options in Windows 10

    When using a high contrast theme in Windows 10 I can't see the shutdown options. This is a bug and not an idea.
    Repro - switch to dark theme,
    click on the Start button
    hover over the Power button
    And then I'm unable to see any option between Start at the top and my UserID.
