    • Regarding this website

      Hi, when I wrote my feedback about narrator, the feedback asked me to fill my email and then submitted it.

      After a few days, I hadn't received any notifications or emails from Microsoft team, so I went back to to the website again. I checked my feedback and you already responded to me. That's strange.

      I remembered last year when I voted or submitted my feedback, I would get emails from Outlook.

      Can you investigate this issue?

      • Please add beeline to all your products or even include it pre installed as a setting in windows

        Would love it if you included beeline in as an extension/plugin for all of your products, or even better incorporated it directly into the windows system so that it could be used w/ all system fonts/text & make it configurable via ease of access or perhaps display settings. After first the beeline chrome extension & then the pdf plugin I can wholeheartedly say this is one of the coolest & truly helpful tools in increasing not only my reading speeds but comprehension as well. I've tried many different speed reading tools, software & techniques, some of which were good, but…

        • Use NVDA instead of Narrator to install Windows 10

          I want to be able to use NVDA during Windows 10 Installation because Narrator is sometimes lagging or doesn't read all Information that's being displayed on the Screen.

          • Windows has poorer accessibility for people with low vision

            I have macular degeneration, and I use a 29-inch HD monitor with Magnifier on in the inverted color mode to improve readability of documents (all have black text on a white surface). When I use Magnifier to increase a 6 or 8 point a fund to the size of a 16-point font, the result is ragged-looking and hard to read. The Microsoft speech recognition tutorial was hard to use because I had to magnify the readings until their raggedness make it hard to read them. If I am working with a dark-themed website that has small text, I can’t magnify…

              • Add Text Size Settings in the MSN News App

                As monitors get larger, it's become extremely important to make sure apps have text size settings for those with poor or low vision. A higher resolution screen produces overall smaller elements at its native resolution. There have been a number of threads in the News app section of the Feedback Hub asking for a text size setting. They have been overlooked by Microsoft, or worse, ignored. Readable text is Accessibility 101. We shouldn't have to spend two years begging for this. And it's not something that would be difficult to implement. It's beginning to appear that Microsoft has a bias…

                • Please make the onscreen keyboard available on the Bitlocker password login screen

                  I have a physical disability and rely on using the onscreen keyboard to type. Currently (as far as I know) the onscreen keyboard is only available on the Bitlocker decrypt screen when using a touch screen. Please make this keyboard available to use with the mouse also.

                  • Help with the ability to turn off Ease of Access which is holding my screen *******.

                    In the Blog there I have been several attempts to solve this problem. However over the years, the links must have been changed because I was able to change to a theme background from the unwanted High Contrast Black, but everthing is surrounded by black with inverted letter colors which are giving me ocular migraines.

                      So we can understand a video even if it never came with subtitles using the default Windows 10 video app. It will be a game changer for accessibility

                      • Add the ability to adjust the size of sliders, windows, and sub-window frames.

                        if you open Microsoft Access, and you have a query open, the Alt+spacebar does not allow for resizing the query window. The only alternative I can find is to maximize the query window within Access, which defeats the purpose of trying to see two of these subwindows at the same time.

                        My hope is that Microsoft will push an update that allows people to customize the width of scrollbars and window frames, like you used to have with Windows 7 and previous versions.

                        • how about allowing the public (read that customers) to view and post comments to articlss on msn. Blocking = the opposite of allowing access

                          How about restoring the ability to view and share opinions on articles published on msn. If an article is intended to share information or invoke some thought process, why then not allow those reading it to share views and opinions. Have yet to receive an explanation of what is the desired result is which is behind this action. What possible benefit could come from people expressing their thoughts or sharing opinions and ideas as they relate to any given article.

                                  speakDropbox is something I wrote that reads allowed the status of the popular Dropbox file sharing application as seen on the system tray. When Dropbox says it's downloading files, speakDropbox speaks that allowed, etc. It can speak using SAPI5 or via most screen readers. For the past 14 days or so it has been getting flagged as malware and is being deleted from everyone's computers. I submitted it for further analysis via the provided form for false positives with microsoft security. The page reports that speakDropbox.exe has no malware in it, but it continues to be deleted by Windows Defender.…

                                      • Please I need a phone number

                                        Why isn't there a large print phone number to call the Disability Desk on the first page?

                                        • Make a new feature in mobile

                                          I suggest you to make a mobile that can be used directly from charger just like laptop (we can use laptop without battery )
