      Hello,

      We would be more than happy to assist you. However, we need more specifics as far as what operatiing system you are using, application, and accessibility tool, as well as the scenario that the proble is occurring. With that information, we can better assist you.

      Thank you,

      The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk team.

      It would be great to be able to use the new hotkeys such as SpaceBar with C or Spacebar with I while still focussed in the list of suggestions. Having to tab away from the list to use these hotkeys is a real productivity killer, because, often the correct suggestion is third or fourth in the list, so we need to be able to use those hotkeys while focussed in the list of suggestions. Thanks.

      • Allow users to DISABLE animations in SharePoint OnPrem 2016 HoverCards

        I find ALL on-screen animation makes me physically nauseous, so turning ALL animation off is extremely important to me.
        Erin Williams in CELA tells me that it is not currently possible to switch off the animation in HoverCards in SharePoint OnPrem 2016: which makes the product unusable for me. Please make disabling animation in SharePoint a GLOBAL and USER SELECTABLE (i.e. not IT department) option.
        And: can Microsoft PLEASE STOP animating everything in every app "because we can?" Edge is now unusable because of that, also large portions of Windows10. Animation, so-called "smooth" scrolling, and similar abominations are NOT "cool"…

        • Improve magnification - make it more Apple like

          Would be great to have similar magnifying features like there are in mac os x:
          - GPU enhanced magnification (not only in full screen mode) to make everything more smooth.
          - Make desktop scrollable rather than reducing the space in "docked mode".
          - Add an option to center the mouse in the zoom area (full screen mode).
          - Add a shortcut to quickly enable/disable zoom without having to close magnify.exe.
          - Dual monitor support:
          - desktop expansion
          - clone (zoomed)
          - clone (1x - with no zoom)

            Hi Artur,

            Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us with your specific suggestions. At this time, I’m in contact with the Project Managers to get an idea of what’s been implemented and what is planned. Once I have concrete answers, I’ll get back to you.

            Thanks again for your input.

          • Native contrast support in Edge

            Completely transfer "color contrast availability" from content authors to end users by developing and integrating a color detection and analysis mechanism in Edge core and provide user configuration (global, per domain, per url).

              Hello Neil,

              Thank you for reaching out to us with your question. However, there is not enough information here to do anything with this issue. Are you asking about color contrast themes in Edge, High contrast, or color contrast ratios?

              Without clearer information, there’s nothing that can be done about this at this time. therefore customer will be asked forfurther details.

              Thank you,

              The Microsoft Disability ANswer Desk team.

              • Allow HC themes to be edited

                When desiring to make changes to a high contrast theme, allow edits to be made to existing saved theme without having to save as a new name.

                      When pressing VO+T in office apps on a MAC to obtain font and formatting information, the alignment information is missing. This should be included to mirror other screen readers in Windows.

                          Can you add some arrow keys to the on screen keyboard? Sometimes using the eye tracker I just want to go back a couple of characters or lines to make an edit and using arrows keys would make it much easier and faster.

I feel I should be credited for not being able to use either of these services because you all are having issues.

                                People with older computers cannot update to newer versions of browsers and cannot therefore update to newer versions of Skype - they are left out! not able to use what they relied on for so long sometimes as their only means of communications. In combination with the constant signing in (on the same computer!), the many "security" requirements, make it more and more impossible to use Skype. And I pay for the service! Even here below!! I want to make a suggestion or comment, but have to give you all my info and agree to everything!?

                                  It would be better if events could be created in the GroupMe calendar without it posting immediately. For example; I’m the Volleyball team mom. I would like to be able to go into the calendar and put all events in at once and have it automatically post on the day of the event. Also, give an option to remove the ‘going? Yes. No’.

                                    • Fix Image Resizing Issue Please

                                      Skype has been resizing images sent to other users with at least the last two versions of it. I emailed support a while ago about this, and my Skype just updated to version 8.27.0.85 today. Hoping they fixed this issue, but they did not. When I send an image, lets say at 2560 x 1440 resolution, or when someone sends me when, Skype is resizing it to 2048 x 1152 automatically. Why? Please fix this.

                                      • Faster mouse keys

                                        Hi,

                                        The current top speed of mouse keys is not fast enough. Would it be possible to make the top speed parameter be even higher?
                                        (without the use of ctrl)

                                        • Please stop the incessant updates.

                                          An occasional update would have been bearable. But these update notifications just. wont. stop. And despite all the "warnings" and the schedule changes i make, sometimes it just restarts on its own eating away my time when i most need it. I don't know if it's too late for window 10, but please just finish your product and be done with it the next time if its possible. Badger people who want to updates and leave those perfectly fine with a basic version alone. Thanks.
