  2. Disability is normal part of human diversity

    First, kudos to you on making technologies accessible to all. Learning Tools are awsome. Please keep working on making all tecnologies fully accessible to people with different types of disabilities. You are doing a great job, but you can always do better 😊.

    Here are some suggestions related to your post Microsoft + Made by Dyslexia: Helping students with dyslexia with technology. In this post  there is a confusing reference to the definition of dyslexia. "These students whose language based learning difference causes a deficiency with phonological processing when learning to read, are often mistakenly labeled as having a learning…

  3. microsoft teams

    Enhance the accessibility of Microsoft Teams with screen readers. We are moving to Microsoft Teams for all of our internal communications and I am not able to fully use Microsoft Teams. 1. Please add hotkeys to quickly move to various parts of Microsoft TEams. Currently, I have to tab to things on the screen and that is assuming that focus will move to areas. Sometimes, it does and sometimes it does not. 2. The calls tab and contacts or basically any of the tabs on the Calls tab are not accessible. This is a problem because I can not call…

  4. As an individual with Vision issue, I have serious concern regarding the setting of magnifier option in the Microsoft Webmail . Its current

    As an individual with Vision issue, I have serious concern regarding the setting of magnifier option in the Microsoft Webmail . Its currently set to 100% by default. And it only has the following listed magnifier ranges 25%, 50%,100% (Default), 150%,200% and 400% respectfully. In my opinion, customer should have the ability to set his or her magnifier range which can be any range depending on one’s vision issue. Please, consider removing this default setting to allow the ability and flexibility to set to any magnifier range for example 115% or 120% or more depending on one’s vision comfort. Thank…

  5. OneNote audio playback + Narrator

    when playing back recorded audio in OneNote, normally there is a playback button that pops up as you hover your mouse over an object that was added to the page while audio was being recorded or played back - clicking the button skips audio playback to the moment in the audio image that was annotated with the page object.

    this sort of playback is impossible to access with Narrator. i would love to see a way to have the playback button pop up with my Narrator focus, and to activate the button with a keyboard to jump to that point…

  9. I have had Office 365 for years. Recently I began receiving a pop-up that said you needed my help with a problem. Tell me???

    If Microsoft doesn't have a program that will let them know whether or not I have Office 365 on my COMPUTER, maybe someone can write that program. If a program is already written and in use, does it recognize that I have Office 365 on my computer?

    Why do I continually get a pop-up that informs me there is a problem with my account, yet when I go to my account, I am NOT INFORMED of a problem.

  10. Microsoft Teams Notification Time

    It is great to finally have notification in Teams that a meeting has started... Could we please have some more time to react or have a setting to set that time. By the time my executive function has processed and I need to make a choice the notification pops away and I am left with no easy means to join.

  12. Lock Security Passkey for Ms Access Navigation Pane

    I really hope ms access will have a lock security with passkey feature to enable / disable navigation pane. This would help developers to protect their development work.

  13. Microsoft Excel

    There is a series problem navigating with keyboard in Microsoft excel 365 and apparently in older versions.
    The F6 key dos not go to the sheets area in the workbook

    As a result a keyboard user without a screen reader cannot perform actions on a sheet using the right click Key
    Using Alt + H O R is very difficult to use with keyboard only – and spatially for People with motor-handicapped hands
    Even if you can add buttons to a Quick Access Toolbar, navigating it might create a load if there are too much buttons on these toolbar
    So…

  16. Soundscape and use with blue tooth hearing aids.


    1. In Uk 25% of visually impaired also have hearing defects. Many contemporary digital hearing aids have the capacity toluse blue tooth which means users who are hearing as well as sight impaired can use their aids at the same time as Sounscape

    Its a great Ap. Considerably extends my ability to get round and identify where I am as well as helps resolve situations in which you are not sure where you are. Some UK National Health Hearing Aid Services will supply a digital blue tooth enabled hearing aid to those who can demonstrate a need for it.

  17. Make Gaze Speak available as download in South Africa

    Per information on this website- https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/gazespeak-1.pdf

    You have developed an app eye gaze.

    We have however tried all avenues to download this to assist with my father in law that due to his condition cannot speak. We live in South Africa so not sure why not available here?

    If you could send us a link where we can download this on an I-Pad

  18. fix the Win10 accessability release so that Security Essentials works...mine hasn't been able to update since I installed Win10!

    The accessibility WIN10 I installed hasn't been able to update Security Essentials since day #1. Nothing I have done, including reinstallation and installation of the "Fall Creator's Update" (whatever that is...) 1709 hasn't helped. I've had to buy Malwarebytes to keep things alive. And since your little subject box above doesn't offer "Security", I've had to select something irrelevant.

    And simply trying to do normal maint. updates results in some sort of "organizational" message -- I'm a standalone installation!

  19. Please allow comments to be deletable in Microsoft Office 2016 with the keyboard.

    According to the following article:
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/insert-or-delete-a-comment-8d3f868a-867e-4df2-8c68-bf96671641e2
    There is no way to delete comments in word with a keyboard.
    This is very difficult to work with as I can't give clients completed, but annotated documents from my coworkers.
    Please fix this ASAP!
