  1. Eyes first maze

    It would be helpful for some users to have a target to focus on from the onset of the game. So for instance having the option to have the little dots that appear after you go over the spaces visible from the start (they can appear on all the spaces to make it more challenging) Just might help in targeting/focusing the eyes, especially for younger users and those with apraxia!
    Thanks for these games- excited that my 6 year old has some new games to explore!

  5. Rdp spase button ios do not Control graphic controls

    Application rd client for iphone : If the iPhone is connected to the windows computer via rdp, the space bar performs only the text input function. buttons can not be pressed, in explorer not select files, it is impossible to interact with checkboxes, and so on. Other remote control programs do not have such problems. Correct the transfer of the space button on the iPhone touch virtual keyboard and update the app in the App Store. This is not a third-party application, the developer specified Microsoft.

  7. Publish Audio Description videos which are already on the Xbox youtube channel.

    There are several unlisted videos on the Xbox youtube channel which are Audio Description versions of existing game trailers. I was delighted to discover these, but could not seem to find them without stumbling upon a link from an external site.
    These videos should be published, at the very least, and organized into a playlist for visually impaired gamers to find. At present, the target audience wouldn't even know they exist.
    With E3 going on, it's more relevant than ever for visually impaired to get excited about upcoming titles alongside their sighted peers.

  8. I don't want tiles. I want Icons with text. I struggle with visual agnosia. I HATE Win 10 and Tiles.

    I don't want tiles. I want Icons with text. I struggle with visual agnosia. I HATE Win 10 and Tiles. My brain does not recognize pictures. I am not 4. I can read text.

    Give us back our Win 7 or before GUI. XP had a great GUI. I could find anything. Win 7, not so good. Win 10 turns my computer into a brick. I CAN"T FIND ANYTHING Give us a Win 7 overlay

  10. In Microsoft Outlook Contacts, could Videophone be added as a type of telephone number, in addition to TTY/TDD, which is already available?

    More and more, Deaf people have videophones (instead of TTY/TDDs). But there's no way to indicate that a specific tel. number if a videophone. this would be great!

  12. Here's an idea for accesability! How about a COMPANY E:MAIL ADDRESS?

    Here's an idea for accessibility! How about a COMPANY E:MAIL ADDRESS we can use when our E:Mail address of TWENTY YEARS gets blocked and after MULTIPLE attempts at your " authentication process" and multiple promises (BY YOU) to call with a code, you require me to open another account. Thereby losing ALL my E:Mails (some from deceased relatives) AND my contacts! WTH?

    I am extremely disappointed and annoyed at the lack of help I received from Marilou when I called her on 14 May.
    Over the past more than 15 years I have always had excellent help from all of your team dealing with disability issues. In fact I have sung your praises to many about how all of your staff have always gone out of their way to help and resolve any problems.
    Unfortunately, this cannot be said for this agent.
    I have never had the misfortune of such an unhelpful agent, who refused to listen to my problems with ms…

  18. Setting timing length for notifications should be in Ease of Access

    Timing length for notifications should be in Ease of Access. By the time I have processed a notification it is gone before it sinks in. I think somewhere notification timing can be set... yet I cannot find it when I look for it. It should be in Ease of Access.

  20. Hard of Hearing, Microphone only input.

    I am practically deaf and rely on hearing aids everyday for general life. I moved across the country and my friends from home and I typically like to game. I haven't come across a good headset that I can hear without turning the volume all the way up. Thats not the problem. The problem is that when I do that, my friends get way too much feedback. I am currently using the Plantronics RIG 800LX (may not be the best mic, but it's always a problem, have had a few over the years). When I turn it all the way…
