  1. 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.

  4. 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"

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. tab close

    we have the problem that the tab in Chrome Edge closes automatically when you open a document from a Sharepoint 2013 library. The sharepoint page runs in Internet Explorer mode. Unfortunately, a reinstallation of the Edge Browser has not been successful to solve the issue. We use Windows 10 1909 Enterprise. Any ideas regarding this problem

  12. Please put back EPUB-function into Microsoft Edge

    Please put back the EPUB-function into Microsoft Edge. The possibility to change fonts, zoom using two fingers on touch displays and the read aloud function were perfect for visually impaired people.
    As an alternative, is there any EPUB-reader available that works with Narrator (Adobe Digital Editions and Calibre don't)?

  13. Ask save location edge mobile

    Asking where to save downloads is a favorite feature of mine in every browser, which allows me to choose where I want my downloads every time I download a file, as well as allowing me to cancel downloads I do not want saving me from potentially malicious files.
    This feature is one that moible browsers all seem to lack and is an annoyance to me.
    This feature would help many. Especially those that use moible devices as computers.

  14. Give me back my last Edge!

    Nothing works the way it used to. I shouldn't need to up lode all my favorite website's. And where's the scroll bar? I'm having to contently hit the down arrow to get anywhere. This is a update? I think you took a step back.

  15. managed favorites using GPO

    Vraťte zpět původní podobu GPO objektu pro nastavení oblíbených položek. Zadávání inline JSON je problémové. Pokud mám využívat JSON, rád bych zadání pomocí více řádků, aby kód mohl být formátovaný jako je v ukázce a jak jej naformátuje automaticky Visual Studio.
    EN:
    Restore the admx template settings of the Favorites. Entering inline JSON is problematic. If I use JSON, I would like to enter using multiple lines so that the code can be formatted as in the sample and how Visual Studio will format it automatically.

  16. NewTabPageManagedQuickLinks

    Rozšířit možnosti "nastavit rychlé odkazy na stránce nová karta" pomocí GPO ze 3 na alespoň 6. V popisu politiky rovněž chybí limit na počet stránek, které je možné nastavit a dlouho mi trvalo, nežli jsem na tento limit přišel a nastavení se aplikovalo.
    EN:
    Extend the "set quick links on a new tab page" with a GPO from 3 to at least 6. The policy description also lacks a limit on the number of pages that can be set, and it took me a long time to come to this limit and apply the settings.

  17. Allow user to change Folder icons (in the Favorites bar).

    I have organized all my favorites in a folder structure in the Favorites bar. Essentially my Favorites bar is a string of folders and all folders look the same as they all have exactly the same icon. It is very hard to pick the right folder intuitively. I either have to remember where approximately the folder is that I want to click or I have to read multiple folder names every single time until I found the right one. Which of course takes a little time at every occasion.

    Therefor, I would like to be able to change the default…

  18. Edge/Narrator: Page doesn't scroll when user navigates in item mode

    Edge: Version 81.0.416.53 (Official build) (64-bit)
    OS: Windows10
    Across all the webpages, the screen doesn't scroll when user navigates in using Caps+ Right arrow.
    Repro steps:
    1. Enable Narrator
    2. Open Microsoft.com
    3. Turn off the scan using CAPS + Spacebar.
    4. Read the page items using CAPS + Right Arrow.
    Expected: The page scrolls as user navigates with assistive technology
    Actual: The page doesn’t scroll. The low vision users who use assistive technology will get confused and lose their navigation on the page.
    Note: This doesn't occur in NVDA/Chrome, NVDA/Firefox or JAWS/IE11.

  19. Allow the user to disable and/or customize Microsoft Edge Accessibility announcements

    When using either Edge Classic or Chromium Edge, the NVDA and Narrator screen readers announce a lot of extra information. For example, "closing tab" is spoken when closing a tab. Other examples include "loading page" or "loading complete" as websites load. Please add an accessibility category to Edge settings to either completely disable these messages or specify which ones are on or off.

  20. Keep aside tabs

    Bring back the function to keep tabs a side so that it is easy to manage sessions based on content being worked upon.
