    • I like your Xbox One Elite. But it's very heavy for me because i got muscular dystrophy. Please make the next one lighter

      I really like your Xbox One Elite controller. Especially the paddles, because in a lot of games you run by pressing the analog. But then i can remap it to the paddles. But unfortunately i got a disease called duchennes muscular dystrophy. And your controller is very heavy for me, because i'm very weak in my hands. So please make the next version of it lighter

      • With high-contrast black theme used, in Edge the YouTube player playback controls are on an opaque background

        When the new techniques for rendering web pages when using a high-contrast mode/theme in Windows 10 were introduced to Edge, this was a big improvement in terms how the pages were displayed in high-contrast mode.

        One of the websites that benefited was YouTube and its HTML5 video player in particular. In that HTML5 player, the background where the text and controls were situated became semi-transparent. That allowed good visibility for both the controls and text of the player in the foreground and for the image from the video in the background.

        Since October of 2017 however, the YouTube theme has…

            my windows 10 was taken over by the unkown networks that you alerted me about. Then allowed for instance skype to create a profile for me on their own. Then Microsoft configured and ran the unknown networks you alerted me about.

                • Scan mode turns on when trying to type into a field on this forum

                  When typing into the post your idea edit box on this forum, scan mode will turn back on when typing a character or when arrowing through the edit box. This is in edge with Narrator in the fall creators update. When I select to post a new idea, scan mode behaves correctly in the give details edit box on the next page.

                  • Change the landing point for keyboard focus on returning to the Contacts tab to the "Find someone or dial a number" area

                    In Skype for Business, it used to be that if I was on the Contacts tab and I used Ctrl + n to move to another tab and then Ctrl + 1 to return to the Contacts tab, my focus was in the same place as I'd left it. Getting to the "Find someone or dial a number" edit could take a lot of keystrokes. When I go to that tab, the edit area is where i want to be almost every time

                    A recent update (I'm now on 16.0.8201.2200) changed this so that now when I return to the…

                      A friend of mine has reported something strange - that her installed copy of NVDA 2017.3 does not read UAC prompts to her, even though as I said it is an installed copy and it is set to run on secure screens and after user sign in. And besides that, NVDA should read UAC prompts even if it is not set to run on secure screens and after user sign in - I can confirm that it does so on my mother's laptop. I used Team Viewer to check what's going on and was surprised to see that the slider…

                      • You are not providing support for dyslexics

                        I am a Windows software developer, but I am also mildly dyslexic. A friend of mine is very dyslexic and has an even bigger problem than I do with this issue.

                        One of the hallmarks of dyslexia is we navigate the world through patterns and when the patterns change, it messes up our world. Whenever Microsoft changes interface on programs or Windows, it messes me up until I learn the new patterns. When I'm working, it cuts my productivity in half for weeks.

                        I tend to stay well behind the software release curve because of it. I still use Office…

                          I am photosensitive. Extremely sensitive to light, so I prefer dark screens. Allow more darkness via a secondary program.

                          Blue colors are higher in energy, thus photosensitive people don't want the screen dark only, but brown-yellowish to cut-off the high frequencies.

                          My intelligence is normal and I use the Photoshop for short periods.
                          When I finalize a picture, I usually keep it dark, but without that brown-yellowish effect in order I control the output. So an on/off button to the high-cut filter (or blue cut-off filter) would be useful.

                              • Default settings for Microsoft Word

                                Currently, default settings for Word 2016 for table properties are selected to allow rows to break across pages, and don't allow header rows to repeat. My suggestion, since we are all trying to comply with federal law (Section 508) and also be more inclusive of people with disabilities, is to set the default for the following: Deselect "allow rows to break across pages" and select "repeat header rows at the top of each page." It this default is set, then it takes fewer steps to make documents accessible for screen-readers. Thank you.

                                  • Accessibility Checker gives warnings for single item lists

                                    It would be nice if the accessibility checker gave a warning when there is a list that only contains one list item.

                                    It could be similar to the warnings about "Infrequent Headings".

                                    I have been remediating quite a few documents where the document creator wanted spaces between list items, but instead of modifying the list style, they put in a paragraph between the list items. Thus, instead of having one list with 20 items, they have 20 lists with one item.

                                    • Reverse the columns in the tables for keystroke-based help articles

                                      Many of the older knowledge-based articles which show keystrokes for office have column 1 of the table showing the keystroke and column 2 showing what that keystroke does.

                                      Most people don't care what the keystroke is; they have an action they want to perform and they want to know what keystroke they need to access it.
                                      So be consistent; the first column should always be the action so it's easier to look up.
                                      Someone needs to go through all the help articles that list keystrokes and clean this up. Most of the newer help articles don't have this problem.

                                        • More eye gaze apps for tablets!

                                          There are tons of apple apps but being an Android family, they are of no use to us. Can we get more options for eye gaze apps (games and learning) that aren't apple-based??
