  1. Add Windows Explorer to the dark mode apps.

    I would like to use the aero themes but have the Explorer work inverted (white on black or dark gray.) I am visually imperiled and the white background hurts my eyes to look at.

      Hello Grant,

      This is a very good suggestion as File Explorer is a core part of Windows. We will forward this on to our product manager to get this implimented and let you know when this is available.

      Again, tahnk you for contacting us, and if we can be of further assistance, please feel free to reach out to us.

      Sincerely,

    • Allow the surface pro cover to be used flat over the touch screen of the computer to look more like a tablet with a keyboard.

      I have a Surface Pro 4 and would love it if I could use the cover flat against the touch screen. I am blind and do not need the screen 95% of the time. This would do several things:
      1. It would reduce the size considerably and make the device much more compact
      2. It would allow me to use the surface on the move without needing to do anything more than press the unlock button and move the pro onto my lap from my hip. (I would have it in a carrying case that has the front open so…

      • Improve the way Word files open with Voiceover

        When I open an existing Word file, the Voiceover cursor is on the document layout area. To get to the text, I need to interact, then interact again, before Voiceover says “in edit text”.

        And if the document has headers, I need to interact, which takes me to the header area, then move down to the text, then interact again.

        Would it be possible, when opening a file, to start with the Voiceover cursor on the text area? This is probably where most users want to be when they open a file – ready to start reading or typing.

          • Give users the ability to create their own Narrator voices.

            I don't know what all goes into voices for Narrator, but it would be pretty neat if users could somehow create their own if that's even possible. This would be a perfect feature for the focus on creating in this latest Windows update.

              Hello Stefen,

              You may be corect. based on what is known about the application and how it works, this may indeed be impossible to impliment. However, I will follow up with the product manager and let you know what that anwer is.

              Thank you for reaching out to us about this.

              Sincerely,

            • Ability to export Narrator customized settings and keyboard commands

              Narrator is supported in more than 20 languages, however there are many others where Narrator is not supported. It means, that some keyboard commands should be changed manualy if we wanted Narrator to work. examples are Narrator key +brackets. In Slovenian keyboard layout we must press ctrl + alt +f/g or alt(gr) +f/g to type square brackets.
              If you have only one computer, it will be easy to customise a Narrator but if you had more than five, this procedure would become very frustrated.
              so until Narrator has not been supported and localised to Slovenian and other languages, I suggest…

I have just a few moments ago I saw your creation HoloLens, and I was deeply impressed by this device. And I would like to tell you about a text concept of absolute immersion in virtual reality devices.
                            It is a capsule full immersion, in which a person falls into a trance or dream, using neural helmet that reads brain signals and converts to a digital signal, creating a virtual reality of total immersion, in…

                              • 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)

                                    • Please make Text To Speak aviable in dutch.

                                      TTS in dutch for Unicersal Windows 10 and Windows 10 for phones will open much doors for people with a dissability in Belgium or The Netherlands. It will also help me a lot as developer of accessible apps in this region.
