  1. Simplify web access bar for Tobii

    The current eye gaze system for internet access is very complicated for users who are developmentally delayed or inexperienced with mouse selections. There should be a more simplified way of moving around the internet. Picture symbols would be great!

    • On YouTube with Edge, the player's progress slider is no longer visible if high-contrast mode is active

      On YouTube with Edge, the player's progress slider is no longer visible if high-contrast mode is active. This happens since a few days ago, when the design of the YouTube HTML5 player changed again. To reproduce this, in Settings -> Ease of Access -> High-Contrast, select the high-contrast black theme. Then open Edge, go to YouTube and select a random video to play. When it starts playing, use the mouse to click on the playback progress bar to fast forward a bit, so the progress indicator from the left end is at least somewhat filled. Previously, the "filling" was visible…

      • Outlook - clearly show destination when moving an email into a folder

        In Outlook 2013 I cannot tell which folder I am moving an email into. The color options do not provide a clear trail when I drop an email from the Inbox into a folder. I am low vision; if it goes into the wrong folder, I will never find it.

          • Great Accessibiltiy Team

            I just want to extend my appreciation to Microsoft for having a team of professionals that provide outstanding support to those of us with certain physical issues. My Hard Drive failed and Microsoft Accessibility team stayed with me and took control of my computer and reinstalled W10. The technicians were friendly, understanding, and subject matter experts and I just wanted to publicly thank them. From an Idea POV, I think it would be a great marketing tool to offer one hour of free support to all authorized users; No one in the Industry is doing that and I think that…

            • Narrator won't stop reading titles

              When switching windows or a new one opens, Narrator won't stop reading the title of the window until it has fully read it. When a key is pressed, Narrator won't interrupt itself and keeps reading the title of the window until the title has been fully read. After the title of the window is read, Narrator behaves normally. This also applies to edit fields, or anything with a long title. For example, this very edit box behaves like this. The phrase "Describe your idea" keeps being read, even if I press arrow keys to navigate the text. The update that…

                  • Win10 creator update overall fine. One problem: the supplied screensaver will no longer quit with mousemove or space bar or esc.

                    Now I need to do ctrl-alt-del to get out of screensaver. Is there a fix? It's not a big deal, just would like it to work appropriately.

                    • Request for interview

                      My wife and I are the hosts and producers of "Eyes On Success" which is a radio show / podcast geared to visual impairment that has been airing for over 6 years. We would like to arrange an interview with a representative from MS about the new "Seeing AI" app. We would also be interested in interviewing a visually impaired developer from MS and/or a representative who might be able to talk more globally about accessibility efforts for the visually impaired at MS.

                          • Image sharing with Seeing AI

                            So far I'm impressed with Seeing AI. However I want to be able to send images and documents from any app on my device. Certainly I should be able to share or send an image from my Onedrive app to Seeing AI.

                              • Creat a form letter we can send to developers

                                We need a form letter we can send to a developer when we are struggling to use in inaccessible or partly accessible applications. I'm truly impressed with the great modern documentation Microsoft has produced for developers, but sometimes users need to nudge them in the right direction. To do this most non-technical users need a way to communicate with developers using language they understand.

                                To bridge this gap, I created this letter. I hope Microsoft accessibility can improve on it and issue something official that end users can copy and paste when emailing developers:
                                ************************************************************

                                  Everything is fine with this Windows phone(LUMIA 520). But worst thing is that I can't install apps(<20mb) with mobile data in this phone. I really dissatisfied with this feature. I can't update my applications without Wi-Fi. I have a large mobile data plan but I can't use that. It doesn't support sideloading of apps. What would a user do who has not mobile data connection instead of Wi-Fi??? Should he buy another phone for setting up a Wi-Fi connection to update his apps on his Windows phone ???

                                      Dear Madam or Sir,

                                      My name is Gabriel Brodowski, I've made a few sites in my time, non have ever really taken off but the first I ever made was a games directory, it didn't break the schools policy on having games embedded in it so it actually didn't do too bad at my school. I'm from Weymouth, Dorset and it's a seaside town where the seagulls get well fed and the dock workers get well drunk.

                                      I’m petitioning for you sincerely to read my written thoughts:
