  1. legacy like pdf reader

    dear microsoft,
    for the last few years i have particularly enjoyed using the pdf reader on edge legacy to carry out some research.however since the update to the new version in June i have been unable to really do anything due to the poor quality of the new version. surely it wouldn't be a bad idea to try and integrate the old viewer within the new (or maybe perhaps keep legacy as a PDF reader rather then a browser), this is a particularly feature that is loved and used by many people and it would be very sad if it…

  4. translate

    as a German living in Ireland: What about a "translate feature"? you highlight a word in a not-your-native language in Edge (i.e.News) .. right click: translate.

  5. highlight option in the newest MS Edge update

    Please bring back the highlight option in MS Edge. The new update only has the draw option. I had to install another software so that I could highlight the text in PDF files.

  6. Accessibility tree calculates the HTML5 section element as region.

    Edge: Version 86.0.622.43 (Official build) (64-bit)
    OS: Windows10

    Repro steps:
    Go to the codepen example at : https://codepen.io/Shirisha1/pen/VwjwWBx

    Open the developer tools.
    Inspect the code.
    Open the accessibility tree and view the <section> element that has no accessible name or role as region.
    Expected:
    Accessibility tree doesn't calculate it as role=region.,
    Actual: Accessibility tree shows it as role= region.

    As per https://html.spec.whatwg.org/#the-section-element,
    As per https://www.w3.org/TR/html-aria/, and https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices-1.2/#arialhregion it should not be treated as region landmark.

    Note: Same issue exist in Chrome browser.

  7. I would like feed discovery in Microsoft Edge that was in Internet Explorer. It is the best Feed reader for blind people. easy to use

    I would like the same control g shortcut and feed discovery reading view available in Internet Explorer made available to the Microsoft Edge browser . It works perfectly with JAWS . and allows me easily to navigate news and podcasts, I will be lost without it.

  9. Layout options modern websites

    Hi,

    Can you please have an option to view your products as a list, or more smaller icons on one page. I have multiple conditions affecting my executive function, Autism being just one of them, and I get overwhelmed having to continuously scroll.

    I never used to have this problem as online stores and websites used to have these options. Unfortunately modern websites seem to be getting rid of them so like many things in this modern world, I haven't changed, but the way information is presented has therefore being just one more item in a list that makes day…

  12. Edge/Narrator reads hidden inputs and buttons

    Edge: Version 80.0.361.66 (Official build) (64-bit)
    OS version and Build: 1803, 17134.1304

    Narrator reads hidden buttons in Microsoft Edge

    The following link is a test page on Codepen.io
    https://cdpn.io/JasonAment/debug/OJVEZNp

    Example (in the carousel) from the Microsoft News Site:
    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/coronavirus

    Repro steps:
    1. Enable Narrator
    2. Open either link in Edge (tested in chromium)
    3. Read the page items using CAPS + Right Arrow

    Expected: Buttons and inputs with aria-hidden="true" are not read or encountered with the screen reader.

    Actual: The buttons and inputs with aria-hidden="true" are not hidden from assistive technology.

    Note: This doesn't occur in Chrome, Firefox or IE11.

  13. Stop with those monocultural landscapes on your opening of Windows 10. I hate them all.

    Ask a user whether they wish an image posted on their opening of their computer.

  16. Changing the Edge browser visited link color

    The color choices for visited and unvisited websites is barely distinguishable in most browsers. Many browsers allow you to change the color of visited websites so they become clearly distinguishable. Unfortunately, Edge does not seem to provide this feature.

    Please provide a simple way for the user to quickly customize colors in Edge for visited and unvisited websites. Ideally, this setting would override individual website settings if they interfere with the custom user settings.

    This problem has persisted in browsers for so many years that is is inconceivable it has not been adequately addressed. Who in the world continues to…

    I just have an issue to where I cannot log into my account that I’ve had for years and it has a lot of sentimental stuff in it priceless pictures etc. I have tried over a year now to get into that account and I have done everything over and over and over again and now I need help to get me into my account because the steps to help me didn’t help at all. So not only can you contact me at wmr.0131@outlook.com and we can try to access my account together. This is definitely an issue that needs…

  18. On the latest Edge, please return "tabs set aside" to legacy UX

    In the original consumer Edge version, the "Set aside tabs" UX was perfect. In the latest Edge, could you please replicate that experience? Thanks!

  19. read out loud for PDFs

    Please make the new Edge also read PDFs out loud. I miss this feature daily. It is really a pity that this feature got lost from the "old Edge"
