  1. Cortana please answer with help when a mental health red flag is typed in????

    If a mental health or suicide phrase is typed in, could Cortana flag it or suggest helpful resources like a public service? For example, when I typed in, "Cortana Im losing my mind" the first results were really negative including the phrase "kill ****self". Instead, Cortana could show mental and suicide prevention resources. Thank you.

  2. provide hotkey for immersive reader view in Edge

    It would be really helpful to have a hotkey to bring up the immersive reader view in the new Microsoft Edge. I will use this feature a lot and want to be able to get to it as quickly as possible when using the keyboard with a screen reader..

  3. Dark Webpages and all content dark with lighter color fonts and characters

    For the Love of Humans with limited visual acuity, please please, spare us the agony of staring at glaring white background webpages in Edge, glaring white pages in Word, even glaring white backgounds in google Play store, I remember Dark Black Windows 8.1 Mobile, and even Windows 10 all dark,which was so awesome, especially for someone like me, who has acuity restrictions and work late hours, the so called night shift owls like us love colors gentle, but easy to discern, in Chrome,VEdge I can download extensions, but that is the longer way round just give us a universal Dark…

  4. Please add a Hotkey to Quickly access Favorites Menu.

    Please add alt+A functionality, to quickly access the "Favorites" menu, as in Internet Explorer. As a screen reader and primarily keyboard user, every keystroke matters. Even one or two additional keystrokes make a workflow more cumbersome.

  5. Narrator is not conveying the password & Email fields as editable when focused in Microsoft Edge

    Hey Microsoft, I would like to share my piece of feedback on an issue that is observed in Microsoft Edge while using Narrator.
    On tabbing to password & Email edit fields i.e. which are marked as type=”password” and type=”email” in underlying HTML, I have observe Narrator is not announcing ‘edit’ instead only announces the label of the field.
    For example, when ‘New password’ edit field receives the focus Narrator announces it as ‘New password’ or ‘New password end of line’ at times and this doesn’t convey users the field as editable. Same behavior is experienced with Email edit fields also. …

  6. Narrator no longer reads `role=math` since 1809

    In Windows 10 version 1803, Narrator could read <span role=math aria-label="message m">???</span> as "message m". In Windows 10 version 1809, it seems that Narrator completely ignores this span element.

  9. Allow setting for Surface pen so that if I want to use it to write in web browser I can write without having to hold the button down.

    If I want to write on something within the browser (like to grade an online assignment), I have to hold the button down, since the default pen function is to use it to scroll. Can there be an option where we decide which function (scroll or write) is the default? It's almost impossible to write or draw while holding down the button.

  11. Select specific spot to read in edge

    Users should be able to highlight any text in Edge and have it read to them at that spot and not have to start at the beginning each time.

  12. Narrator + Edge in Win 1809 seems unable to cope with websites in different languages

    When browsing the web on Edge with Narrator on Win 1809, and one navigates on a page authored in any other language than the one set for Narrator's synthesizer, Narrator will not switch to the correct language synthesizer but will attempt to pronounce the content in the default synthesizer, which will make the content unintelligible. This seems a rather basic feature. Am I missing a setting, or something, to make it work? NVDA, for instance, switches between languages smoothly as one browses through multilingual content with the correct lang attributes set.

  13. Narrator in browsers

    Hey, I'm using Windows narrator and the Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browser. So when I start the browser and navigate to the address bar or the search bar or anywhere and want to type anything it says "unavailable" every time I want to type a character, so I can't type anything. Why's that and what can I do against this?

  15. Return to Windows Live Mail

    Windows 10 deleted Windows Live Mail and downloaded something that never works and has no features. It eats up your hard drive with updates and stops working at will. The tech that downloaded it . Took seven hours trying to figure it out. and never did. Hardly spoke English! Microsoft email is a joke! Their flash player leaves a lot to be desired as well. My next computer will be an APPLE!!! So much better and it works!

  17. Let there also be an option to make background for apps (including windows explorer) to be transluscent.

    If the background for for apps (including windows explorer) is transluscent (just like the light and dark modes) then it would show fade wallpaper in the background and it would look really cool.
    Also I think it's a really great idea.

    P.S. I couldn't find any category befitting my suggestion so I put it in Microsoft Edge category. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  18. Edge is always freezing. Please improve its performance. Please update this ASAP.

    Edge is always freezing. Please improve its performance. Please update this ASAP. I have had nothing but constant problems with Edge. The developers really need to make major improvements on it or go back and fix Internet Explorer, as I hardly have too many issues with it, but something desperately needs fixed in both. Thanks, Ed

  19. Have Screen Readers not read "blank" on role="presentation" or aria-hidden="true" SVG Elements

    At the moment, when JAWS or NVDA with Edge, you have no way of fully ignoring an SVG. The screen reader will always read "graphic," unless you enable role="presentation" or aria-hidden="true," in which case it will read "blank."

    If you add an aria-label to a parent div, that label will be reread multiple times depending on how many SVG elements and <text> elements are contained within that div.

  20. Make edge work with Dragon Naturally Speaking

    Many people rely on Dragon Naturally speaking to access there PC. Edge has no support for Dragon so is not usable, the only option is to revert to Internet Explorer.

    Either Edge needs to support Speech recognition programs or Internet Explorer needs to continue to be supported. Otherwise a community of people will not be able to use MS products to access the internet.
