  1. Contacted Windows help today. Virtual help is no help at all. Second had chat with agent for problem. #1409556662, cannot connect bluetooth.

    Was sent to a site called PC First aid. Did this a few weeks ago to up date my drivers. Purchased what I thought was a years service. They want more money to up date my drivers again, they are supposed to keep them up dated for a year. What kind of scam are you runing?

  2. More and advanced mouse settings (speed and acceleration)

    Hi.

    It would be helpful if there were more mouse settings in Windows - not only in software provided by mouse manufacturer. A possibility to set speed and acceleration to nearly whatever value you need.

    And why do I think it's important?

    There are many people very used to their mouses. To the point when they can't use any other (or can't find any). Sometimes it happens when a person has a disease that changes his or her anatomy. Not every software provides needed options and some old mouses' software doesn't even work anymore.

    It would be just a possibility…

  3. You are not providing support for dyslexics

    I am a Windows software developer, but I am also mildly dyslexic. A friend of mine is very dyslexic and has an even bigger problem than I do with this issue.

    One of the hallmarks of dyslexia is we navigate the world through patterns and when the patterns change, it messes up our world. Whenever Microsoft changes interface on programs or Windows, it messes me up until I learn the new patterns. When I'm working, it cuts my productivity in half for weeks.

    I tend to stay well behind the software release curve because of it. I still use Office…

  6. Use of Dynamic Text type in Microsoft Apps for iOS

    As a visually impaired person, I'm using Apple's in built dynamic text type, setting it at it's largest setting. However some Microsoft apps do not respond well to this. For example, in Cortana for iOS, the weather card is so long as I have the description say "Mostly Cloudy" with each individual letter on a new line pushed up to the right hand side with large amounts of white space. In OneDrive for iOS, the share feature to upload content is a pain, with folders overlapping, and hard to click even the right account. And on the new Edge for…

  11. A live vectroscope

    A vectroscope that you can fullscreen or put somewhere in the corner.

    It's just pleasing to look at, can't find any gadget for it though

  12. Improve the Accessibility of Windows SIM for Screen Reader Users

    There are two main accessibility issues with the Windows System Image Manager (SIM), part of the Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK). First, when you use your screen reader's right-click function to access the right-click menu for the selected component or package, the click targeting is several lines below where the system focus is located. Additionally, you cannot use Shift+F10 to access the context menu. Could these issues please be remedied? These problems were found in the ADK Insider Preview, Build 16288. I am using JAWS 2018 Public Beta.

  15. Outlook - clearly show destination when moving an email into a folder

    In Outlook 2013 I cannot tell which folder I am moving an email into. The color options do not provide a clear trail when I drop an email from the Inbox into a folder. I am low vision; if it goes into the wrong folder, I will never find it.
