Giving microsoft photos the option to have the windows movie maker layout for blind users.
It would be nice to have the photos app to work or have the option to work just like the old windows movie maker since it was so blind friendly. We could make videos without asking for sighted help back then. Now we have to ask someone to make our videos YouTube ready which doesn't always work out for us.

Thanks for the shortcuts link. Please do try to make this program like movie maker or would you please bring movie maker back as an optional download for screen reader users? It was easy to use and we were so happy to have a program that we could use, just like the sighted people.
Here's a list of keyboard shortcuts for photos https://support.microsoft.com/help/13805. If you need additional assistance please visit aka.ms/DisabilityAnswerDesk to call or chat with a live agent.
I support this suggestions

Well, I’m using NVDA to work with my computer.
The photos app doesn’t work well with the screen reader and I can’t make out heads or tails of what’s going on with my videos when I try to edit them.
I can’t listen to the clip that I want or stop and split it when I want to remove something like I use to do in Movie maker.
In movie maker you could just use the keyboard to split, copy and paste a clip or song where you want it to stop or start. We could add animation affects or transitions without any problems and even let the computer make a movie for us.
Movie maker was more of a clean easy to use program with everything in menus and ribbons which was accessible to screen reader users.
If Microsoft could go back to that program and give us the option to either use its layout for the photos program or even let us download it to windows as an accessibility feature, it would mean the world to us and give the sighted user the option not to download the feature since most people don’t like these accessibility clutter on their machines.
Please Microsoft, some of us are and have always enjoyed the movie maker program since it placed us on the same level as the sighted when it came to video making and having our own YouTube channels.
Without your movie maker, we’re hanging and we’re unable to feel good about our creations since a sighted person now have to do it for us.
No fun in that. ☹
I’m willing and able to test out any thing you can make for us screen reader video editors.
Thank you for your time and help.
