  3. Microsoft Office 365 videos on YouTube

    We are so thankful for all that Microsoft is doing to make accessibility at the forefront of all of your products! They are amazing. We have noticed, however, that your videos are not able to be followed by folks who are blind because there is little to no spoken word. Because I present on best practices in teaching and using your technology around our university campus, I feel I cannot incorporate your videos into those presentations because they go against the principles of inclusive design. Could you please look into these? I like your videos because they are short and…

  4. Improve accuracy and functionality of speech recognition

    The accuracy of speech recognition appears to be coming up again and again.

    I spent £450 on a new laptop, hoping that the accuracy would be excellent compared to google. Clear and so disappointed and frustrated that I had considered the facts that I still have enough time to return the laptop to the shop and change it for an Ipad. I have cerebral palsy and injured my hands four years ago and they have not recovered due to spasticity.

    Maybe speech recognition could be improved by using some of the most commonly used commands in the training section as…

  6. Expect a disabled senior's blog and an AARP Magazine article on how badly the Microsoft Disabled dept. CAN'T DO ITS JOB.

    I went repeatedly to the disabled Dept. Of Microsoft, and the Disabled Chatboxes, and the employees of these depts. Repeatedly failed over and over, to fix my disabled draw tablet,which windows ten update had broken so it could not get fixed. THERE will be an article in AARP MAGAZINE on how bad that Microsoft disabled chat boxes and the Disabled help dept. Of Microsoft repeatedly screwed up,failing to fix the broken tablet in Windows ten.

  8. Microsoft Edge print screen has unconventional option to close or dismiss

    The PRINT screen for Edge has an annoying format. The print dialog does NOT have a close button "X" in the upper right of the window. The user is forced to close an unwanted print dialog using a CANCEL button at the bottom of the dialog or window. Why is this frustrating?

    FIRST, it is unconventional. Most print dialogs have a close button at upper right of window. Microsoft apps use the backdoor under FILE to print, but the edge print option differs from the appearance of a Microsoft Application such as WORD.

    SECOND, it is easy for the user…

  14. Hello there, HoloLens 2 support. I have idea for improvement for people with visual impairment, which is including your product HoloLense 2!

    Hello there, HoloLens 2 support.
    I have idea for improvement for people with visual impairment, which is including your product HoloLense 2!
    My idea was, that after adding high resolution camera above the HoloLense 2, the picture from this camera would than be streamed live in to the device, for people with visual impairment to have option, to zoom in or out as they need in order to provide better vision for them.

    Please let me know, what do you think about this idea?

  16. Bitlocker screen gives no indication that the eyesight impaired can use

    My customer has many eyesight impaired users, but they also use Bitlocker with PIN on startup. The Bitlocker screen doesn't give these users any indication that they are on the Bitlocker screen and need to enter their pin.
    The screen times out after a short while, so the user never knows where they are in the process if they forget to count after pressing the power button or the machine doesn't respond in the expected way.

  17. Please fix the taskbar issue

    Each time I click into a full screen game in certain areas, the task bar minimizes my game and automatically begins to type into a search bar. This issue is worse when navigating through webpages. Please add an update to fix this issue. This is causing alot of frustration when even doing simple webage navigation.

  19. "point to input" is active no matter where you point it when using on-screen keyboard.

    I am a muscular dystrophy patient. Only a small movement of the wrist.

    If you are using the on-screen keyboard, the input function is only enabled within the on-screen keyboard.

    Furthermore, make sure that "point to input" is active no matter where you point to it.

    For example, you can click on the taskbar icon, scroll the internet screen, move the on-screen keyboard, etc.
