I suggest you ...

Add Drag-And-Drop to mouse support.

Screen readers such as Window-Eyes have the ability to support Drag-And-Drop as Narrator continues to mature, will you also add this feature?

        Hi Joseph,

        I got some feedback from one of the developers. Here's what they have to say. If you can provide further information, that would be great in that we can help you further.

        1) We do support Drag and Drop via touch in some scenarios.
        This can be demonstrated via the start menu (if we wish to make a video here).
        2) Narrator currently, does not fully support a mouse drag drop replacement.
        It would be good to talk with him about his use cases for a screen reader doing drag drop on his behalf.
        The reason I bring this up is for the fact that it sounds like (if they are Microsoft apps) those apps may not be properly supporting keyboarding.

        If you can provide us with additional information based on this response, we would greatly appreciate it.

        Sincerely, The Microsoft Disability answer Desk team.

        After updated they changed the mouse, it supposed to be one click instead of double clicks also scoll too. After updated I had difficult time to do my mouse every time.
