    Dear Microsoft,
    I know that you make Fortnite with Gold...
    Its unfair because PS4 doesen't need acces to ps plus to play Fortnite, so you would make us happy if you would make Fortnite without Gold.

    Thank you for reading this.

    • Create a getting started with Narrator Xbox guide

      Please create a user manual similar to the Windows 10 Narrator guide for Xbox. This should include details such as a physical description of the controller, starting Narrator, and information on using Narrator to navigate the interface. You may want to expand the existing guide with a link to the Xbox specific information.

      • Pricing of the Adaptive Controller

        I purchased the adaptive controller for my son who is 9 years old because he has cerebral palsy. I was excited to learn about this controller because this will give him the chance to play on the xbox with his family and friends. However, it was really disturbing to learn that there are four pieces that comes with the adaptive controller and the price of all four pieces came up to the amount of $251. Why is it that a regular controller costs on $59 but someone with a disability have to pay 3 times that amount just to feel…

            • 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. :)

                  • Xbox one controller compatible with the adaptive controller

                    My name is Charlie Lawless, and I am having a problem with the play and charge kit, and the adaptive controller. If you have purchased the Xbox play and charge kit, with the original controller, then you bought the adaptive controller; also, when you connect the original Xbox one controller to the adaptive controller, for some reason, the light should remain green. After a day, the light turns red. My suggestion to Xbox is if possible make another play, and charge kit with a shorter cable to the disabled could use the adaptive controller with the Xbox One.

                    • Microsoft Family - Screen Time

                      Hi, I would like to have a feature where I could give additional time to my child from the Microsoft Family home screen web site, without the need to have my kid request additional time via email.

                      Also, I would like to have a very granular time assignment possible outside of the predefined time templates (15, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours and 8 hours).
                      Sometime I just want to give 20 minutes, but in the current model this is not possible.

                      It would also be nice to have the ability to stop any allotted time immediately via web site.

                        Can you make an adapter to work with my Xbox one controller/device and my Bluetooth capable hearings aids? A 1.5mm to Bluetooth transmitter in the headphone jack would work, no?

                            • Sticky notes bug with XAC and JoyToKey

                              If using a XAC d-pad for cursor movement (remapping using the very popular JoyToKey remapping software) you'll notice that Sticky notes behaves badly when you push UP (to simulate cursor up).

                              This is because even without JoyToKey, using the XAC or any joystick type device is picked up by Sticky Notes, but UP for some reason is mapped to the TAB key. Meaning you can access sticky notes, but can never simulate an UP key press. Very frustrating, and renders Sticky Notes nearly useless for such users.

                              Here's a little on XAC being used as a mouse device to show…

                              • xbox adaptive controller - programmable buttons that can use keyboard/mouse inputs

                                I bought the xbox adaptive controller for the pdp one handed controller peripheral. I would like to be able to program the buttons using keyboard/mouse inputs. I have limited abilities in my left hand so the one handed controller is perfect. i intended to use the XAC combined with a mouse. The current game i am playing wont allow the use of a controller and a mouse at the same time. -- i have determined it's the controllers "imacontroller" tag and using "controllerbuttons" conflicts with the mouse/keyboard settings.

                                Example configuration:
                                UP: W
                                Down: S
                                Left: A
                                Right: D

                                      • Collaboration with new Xbox Adaptive Controller

                                        Hello Xbox Team!

                                        We would like to discuss a possible partnership for the upcoming Xbox Adaptive Controller with you. As GlassOuse, we design and manufacture assistive devices and adapted switch controls. We believe we will be a perfect match for the gamers with the new controller. If you can write back to us, we want to send you a bundle of our products and share all knowledge we gathered about accessibility so far since the beginning of our journey. As GlassOuse Assistive Device and G-Switch Series, we are more than ready to become a part of this.

                                        Here, you may…

                                          I'm excited for my son to get the new accessible controller but when shopping for the adaptions he will need I can't help but notice the t-bar joystick shown in the photo isn't available. Will it be? If not it should be.
