  2. Please make an audible or vibration signal to indicate when the pen is paired with the surface pro4 tablet. G

    There should be a vibration or audible signal to indicate when the function key is pressed. This is particularly important for us blind jaws screen reader users. I have muted my surface many times because I didn't realize the function key was not depressed.

  5. Make sure developers of different MS products are on the same accessibility page.

    Accessibility Checker and Captioning plug-in for PowerPoint? Good job. Thumbs up.

    Inability to convert a captioned PowerPoint to an accessible Office Mix? Inexcusable.

    MAKE IT EASY FOR END USERS TO CREATE ACCESSIBLE CONTENT.

    Make the Narrator keyboard commands mimic two of the most popular screen readers JAWS or NVDA. This would make it easier to switch between the different screen readers. Narrator is starting to show some potential but as it becomes more useful it may be too difficult to use if the commands are to difficult to remember.

  11. Inconsistent accessibility features in Edge and other MS apps

    I was directed to come here by customer support. I had to install Windows 7 on a different hard drive just to post this! I have been a member of the "insider" program since February 14th 2015.
    I have a spinal cord injury which renders my hands and arms useless. I have been disabled for 25 years. I worked with Mark Novak, at the University of Wisconsin Weisman Center, on the original Access Pack for MS-DOS and Access Pack for Windows 3.1 which is the forefather of "Ease of Access". I must use a mouthstick or voice recognition to navigate…

  14. Please allow scrreen readers to fully read Windows Runtime applications like the Cortana search box

    Apparently Microsoft just made a security decision to block any application, even a trusted screen reader, from injecting its code into any WinRT application.
    This includes Windows core components like the start menu, settings app and Microsoft Edge. This also means windows store apps as well.

    This greatly reduces accessibility in all these essential apps and in particular edit boxes. We are pretty much writing silently and there is no sound for when we misspelled something or when a suggestion comes up.
    Microsoft is moving more and more to having all their apps and components be packaged like this, so…

  15. Make the command lines work better with screen readers, including the new Bash client for developers

    The current command line works pretty good, but there are two major problems that showed up particularly in windows 10:
    1. You need to use the review cursor to read the command line. This is OK, but not novice friendly and has always been the case.
    2. When one has "speak typed characters on" or "speak typed words on" I will hear new output spelled to me rather than read normally. This is beyond aggravating!
    Next, the new Bash client acts like the command line, but when using things like SSH, Nano or Vim, it acts a little strangely.
    For…

  16. make narrator automatically switch voice based on the language of the text

    it would be very useful if the new mobile core voices can be language aware, so that an English voice would speak English text, the Arabic one would only read Arabic text, etc.

  17. Please make Text To Speak aviable in dutch.

    TTS in dutch for Unicersal Windows 10 and Windows 10 for phones will open much doors for people with a dissability in Belgium or The Netherlands. It will also help me a lot as developer of accessible apps in this region.

  18. Add a Screen Curtin Like on IOS

    In windows 10, especially on the Surface devices, the ability to turn off the screen has been disabled. The old method was to press windows+p to get to projector options, then arrow up to second screen only and press enter.
    There are three reasons why having a way to turn off the screen is important:
    1. Privacy and safety. As a blind user, we have no idea who could be looking at our screen and if we are writing some highly personal data in a public place, then we have no way to insure someone is not looking over our…

  19. Bring Siri's "What did they say" to Windows 10

    One key difference I would like to see would be to have it expand the reach of the feature. Make "What did they say" work in Edge.

  20. Voice commands for teachers

    integrated voice commands in Windows 10 using Cortana, not just for accessibility but broader use, as a teacher would like to walk into a room and say, "Cortana, On Screen" then a series of events would happen to project device screen to front of the room. Say "Cortana, Blank Screen" to hide screen, in classroom say "Cortana, Show Billy's Screen" and so on. Would be many other uses for Cortana commandlets for the Internet of Things.
