  1. Seeing AI Talking Camera

    Any chance of getting this for Android phones? My daughter has MS and is doing her best to raise 4 boys ranging in age from 9 to 14. This would be wonderful for her to use in order to take the bus, go shopping, or read items from their schools. She relies on her 14 year old twins, but they're not always with her when they're in school. I'd be willing to beta test anything to help. It would be wonderful to help her "see" the world around her.

    Also, I agree with the suggestion to have the camera mounted.…

  3. Option to disable adaptive brightness and adaptive contrast

    I am sensitive to lighting and currently if I am on any battery setting other than best performance when I change windows the whole screen changes brightness and does it over a couple of seconds - I did not have the setting available to me under power settings and had to contact disability support (regular support was unhelpful) and get instructions to edit the registry which is not really accessible friendly.

    I would love to see 2 options under accessibility to just enable/disable adaptive brightness and contrast for all power settings.

  4. Discounts for LinkedIn Membership with Individuals Unable to Work Due to Disabilities

    I like to use LinkedIn to stay connected to people, but I am now on Permanent Long Term Disability due to my condition of Refractory Epilepsy with partial Retrograde and a form of Anterograde Amnesia. This prevents me from working and I began collecting social security when I was in my 30s. The price to pay for LinkedIn Premium membership is now too high due to my limited budget, especially because I cannot work and have high medication costs. Would you ever consider creating a premium membership for individuals in my condition where there would be greater access, but at…

  7. Can we give Microsoft Contacts and Microsoft Calendar their own Domains ?

    I can't export Microsoft Contacts and Microsoft Calendar as separate Web Launchers because they are bunched inside Outlook , can we give them their own domains like calendar.live.com and contacts.live.com ?

    I'm actually not going to use them at all if they are bunched inside Outlook like this , if they had their own domains , they could have easily rivaled Google Contacts and Google Calendar .

  9. Microsoft Edge and Photos on Linux

    I understand that making a DEB Package is downright frustrating and discouraging , when big companies are told about Linux , they go straight to making DEB Packages but there are very easy ways to port to Linux .

    If you just create a working Tarball made inside a Linux Environment and send it to the major Repository Maintainers , they can do the rest .

    The Major Repository Maintainers in the Linux World are openSUSE , Arch , Red Hat Enterprise , Linux Mint , Mageia , Debian , Solus and Ubuntu .

    If you want to reach out…

  12. Zoom tool scalability

    As a low vision individual, I've used the magnifier since the days of XP where I had to open the command box and type "magnify". I do like the newer "Windows-+" hotkey, but I wanted to suggest a way I use in other Operating systems. I use the Gnome desktop in Linux almost exclusively because the zoom feature allows me to designate a hotkey and use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. It allows for quicker access and makes it easier to vary the zoom level. Hotkey+wheel up zooms in level by level and hotkey-wheel down scrools back…

  18. In Copilot - disable controller buttons and/or map multiple buttons to the same function

    I'd like to request the ability to disable controller buttons or map multiple buttons to the same function while using copilot.

    First off - I believe copilot is a wonderful concept. But, in certain situations it is limited by having a complete 1 to 1 correlation between each controller. If we were able to simplify the secondary controller by disabling buttons or alternatively mapping the same function on multiple buttons I believe we would be able to expand the copilot function to a broad user base.

    As it is, my son does not posses the fine motor skills to hit…

  19. Support for individuals living with left Homonymous Hemianopsia

    There should a facility for change the order of a display so that the list of folders can be positioned on the right hand side of the screen.

    Whilst this request has been raised against Outlook, the problem applies to all Microsoft products designed for the Windows environment and products developed using Microsoft development tools. eg File Explorer, order of tabs on the toolbar for all applications.

    Note that Homonymous Hemianopsia is often linked to individuals who have had a stroke and they may have other disabilities.

  20. Vibration motors

    My son uses the adaptive controller, which is absolutely amazing by the way. The only thing that is really missing is the rumble force feedback that you get from regular controllers. It would be awesome to have a separate pack that had the rumble motors in it that you could Velcro to your arm or Wherever so you could feel the shots being fired from your gun. My son uses a proximity sensor so there is really no tactile feedback at all and I think if there was a way to introduce the feedback you get from the regular controllers…
