  2. Make edge work with Dragon Naturally Speaking

    Many people rely on Dragon Naturally speaking to access there PC. Edge has no support for Dragon so is not usable, the only option is to revert to Internet Explorer.

    Either Edge needs to support Speech recognition programs or Internet Explorer needs to continue to be supported. Otherwise a community of people will not be able to use MS products to access the internet.

  3. Edge/Narrator reads hidden inputs and buttons

    Edge: Version 80.0.361.66 (Official build) (64-bit)
    OS version and Build: 1803, 17134.1304

    Narrator reads hidden buttons in Microsoft Edge

    The following link is a test page on Codepen.io
    https://cdpn.io/JasonAment/debug/OJVEZNp

    Example (in the carousel) from the Microsoft News Site:
    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/coronavirus

    Repro steps:
    1. Enable Narrator
    2. Open either link in Edge (tested in chromium)
    3. Read the page items using CAPS + Right Arrow

    Expected: Buttons and inputs with aria-hidden="true" are not read or encountered with the screen reader.

    Actual: The buttons and inputs with aria-hidden="true" are not hidden from assistive technology.

    Note: This doesn't occur in Chrome, Firefox or IE11.

  4. Improve focus on Edge's notification bar

    When the notification bar pops up, i use ALT+N to navigate, then cannot see the focus so I have no idea that navigation was successful. Add color and larger borders to the focus element!

  5. PDF Microsoft Edge Accessibility

    Since the fall creators update, when opening PDF's in Microsoft Edge, the background colour has been changed to a light grey. Having a visual impairment, when opening documents which are majority on a white background, the light grey does not provide a very good contrast. Can you consider returning to how it was previously or just simply using a darker grey background for PDF's in Microsoft Edge to provide a higher contrast with the actual document.
    Furthermore, when using read aloud in PDF's, can you allow it to read from where you left click the mouse, the same as online,…

  8. Changing the Edge browser visited link color

    The color choices for visited and unvisited websites is barely distinguishable in most browsers. Many browsers allow you to change the color of visited websites so they become clearly distinguishable. Unfortunately, Edge does not seem to provide this feature.

    Please provide a simple way for the user to quickly customize colors in Edge for visited and unvisited websites. Ideally, this setting would override individual website settings if they interfere with the custom user settings.

    This problem has persisted in browsers for so many years that is is inconceivable it has not been adequately addressed. Who in the world continues to…

  9. read out loud for PDFs

    Please make the new Edge also read PDFs out loud. I miss this feature daily. It is really a pity that this feature got lost from the "old Edge"

  10. sticky notes is not disability friendly

    The sticky notes in the Microsoft Store are not disability friendly at all. It is so frustrating that many programs have been made without us in mind. It is such a shame. I am a college student and I cannot utilize a lot of things offered in the Microsoft Store. I am so disgusted my this.

  12. Improve screenreader access of Skype for Business

    Skype for Business is curretnly very verbose with a screenreader and has limited keyboard shortcuts. Explore ways to imporve EG don't read out title of conversaton window as arrow between each line in a conversation; make it faster and more reliable to mute and unmute self and to review and manage status of others in a meeting. Make it easier and more consistent to fidn and join meeting from within the applicaton (at the moment join via Outlook meeting is more reliable with a screenreader).

  13. Stop with those monocultural landscapes on your opening of Windows 10. I hate them all.

    Ask a user whether they wish an image posted on their opening of their computer.

  14. On the latest Edge, please return "tabs set aside" to legacy UX

    In the original consumer Edge version, the "Set aside tabs" UX was perfect. In the latest Edge, could you please replicate that experience? Thanks!

  16. 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…

  17. Improve high-contrast support in Chromium-based Microsoft Edge

    I see that in v81.0.366.0 of Chromium Edge the high-contrast mode support is enabled by default. There are a few bugs in it, which I would like to report:


    1. The icon with the 3 vertical dots for the "Actions Menu" button for each video (e.g. on the YouTube home page) is missing, making the button practically invisible when using a high-contrast black theme. This is not the case with the old/legacy/EdgeHTML Microsoft Edge.


    2. The icons for buttons such as "Like", "Dislike", "Share", "Save", etc. (located under a playing video) are missing, making the buttons practically invisible when using a high-contrast…

  18. highlight option in the newest MS Edge update

    Please bring back the highlight option in MS Edge. The new update only has the draw option. I had to install another software so that I could highlight the text in PDF files.

  19. legacy like pdf reader

    dear microsoft,
    for the last few years i have particularly enjoyed using the pdf reader on edge legacy to carry out some research.however since the update to the new version in June i have been unable to really do anything due to the poor quality of the new version. surely it wouldn't be a bad idea to try and integrate the old viewer within the new (or maybe perhaps keep legacy as a PDF reader rather then a browser), this is a particularly feature that is loved and used by many people and it would be very sad if it…

  20. 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…
