    • Have Screen Readers not read "blank" on role="presentation" or aria-hidden="true" SVG Elements

      At the moment, when JAWS or NVDA with Edge, you have no way of fully ignoring an SVG. The screen reader will always read "graphic," unless you enable role="presentation" or aria-hidden="true," in which case it will read "blank."

      If you add an aria-label to a parent div, that label will be reread multiple times depending on how many SVG elements and <text> elements are contained within that div.

      • Parts and Pieces

        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.

          • Provide an option to make the mouse cursor/insertion point centered in full screen when magnified.

            Providing an option for making the mouse cursor centered when moving around the screen would negate the need for ZoomText; additionally, I'd want the functionality to apply to centering the screen around the insertion point when typing.

            There has already been an idea posted here:
            https://microsoftaccessibility.uservoice.com/forums/307429-microsoft-accessibility-feedback/suggestions/17819389-improve-magnification-make-it-more-apple-like

            But it seems the "- Add an option to center the mouse in the zoom area (full screen mode)" has been ignored

              • I suggest that, if possible, you should find a way to identify disabled people, and offer windows 10 free, but without having it public.

                I suggest that, if possible, you should find a way to identify disabled people, and offer windows 10 free, but without having it public. I think that it should work with a link sent through mail, or a key, if you don't want healthy people to use the free option.
                There are people like me, who were under a rock or so, and found out only recently that windows 10 was released. Sadly, not all countries give disabled people enough money to get windows licences. That's why I ask, if possible, for those people to get help. Right now i'm…

                • ADVISE WHEN Seeing AI app will be available on Android phones. Help near blind folks know if they must buy a new Apple iPhone? Or wait?

                  Aged near blind must have access to this terrific app. Must they buy an iPhone and scrap their Android device only to find out next day that Seeing AI is now available for Android devices. PLEASE - just let us know WHEN so that we can make intelligent decisions. Surely Microsoft can do better than "We're working on it". Thanks MUCH.

                          • Extremely difficult to use and access. What is the waiting period about? Just want to erase my searches. Not at all easy to use.

                            When I sign in and get a code do not make me get another and then say it takes several weeks to use. This is stupid. Make Microsoft for us dummies who are who we say we are and just want to do simple things like erase search history.

                            • Windows Classic emulators

                              I know this may not seem like an appropriate location for this suggestion, but I had a thought this morning. Since many people find Windows intimidating, why provide a sort of backwards compatibility for the user. What I mean is a $20 VM that emulates previous Windows environments for those who are too scared of the newest Windows OSes. In essence, it would be sort of like training wheels for Windows.

                              For example, for students with learning disabilities, they could ease into the modern Windows by starting in Win 95. Since older Windows versions tended to be far less feature…

                                      • Incorrect opening times for telephone conversations with UK disability helpdesk,

                                        Telephone opening times, needs to updated weekly to see if they are correct.
                                        It is not the first time were found at the weekend, opening stated times on the website does not correspond when actually using it..
                                        Especially important for dyslexics who want to speak not try to use the computer and voice recognition software at the same time too stressful when there's an issue.
