  1. GroupMe

    Hi,

    I know that GroupMe is part of the Skype Family, but can you add it to this list for Microsoft feedback accessibility? This would help me to send it directly to developers about accessibility issues like bugs.

    I gave some feedback regarding accessibility issues to developers on App Store (under Review), but hasn't fixed the issues for a while.

    Thank you,
    Otto

      • Accessibility issue for GroupMe

        Hi,

        Regarding GroupMe on iOS app and Website, users liked my messages, but screen readers could not read likes. I wanted to know who liked my messages. I know sighted people can see likes, but I don't.

        Also, Voice-Over cannot see date and time for messages on iOS app.

        Unfortunately, I'm not sure about Android app because I don't have it, but you should investigate it.

        Can you please fix the issue?

        Thank you,
        Otto

        • allow paste into skype uwp keypad during calls

          Skype desktop app allows you to paste in both the number you are calling and any pin codes you need once connected; the windows store skype app doesn't let you paste into the dialpad in a call so you have to type out long conference calling codes by hand, much less convenient!

            • Extend Skype Translate to Group Chats so the Deaf can Read What is Being Said

              There is no current solution for a blind person, a deaf (but can speak) person, and a paraplegic (can speak, but can not type quickly) person to telecommunicate. Skype Translate could solve this. Skype translate turns speech into text of another language displayed on the screen. It only allows two people to use this function at a time though. I propose that Skype Translate be extended to allow larger group chats for this purpose.

              • improve accessibility in skype

                Make skype more accessible with screen readers. The desktop app is not usable anymore, and I went to remove two versions and couldn't install skype desktop on the PC anymore. The app from the store is usable, but you can't type numbers using the dialpad. Can't sign out of skype either.

                    Please update the social networking sites include the Skype, Share it, and Imo. That will be very useful to users.

                      • Support RTT (Real-Time Text, the replacement for TTY) in Skype

                        I'd like to be able to use Skype (home or enterprise versions) as full-feature communications systems. To do that I'd need RTT support. The main differentiator is (possibly optional) real-time chat where each character is sent separately, simultaneously with voice and/or video. But this would also mean support for TTY (with Skype In or Out).

                        Background info:

                        • Rather than go through the pretence of trying to treat disabled people with respect, Microsoft needs a UK support email address

                          The Skype support team have augh at disabled people by promising to get back to us with a new password and then ignore us. Microsoft can disempower disabled people even more plus give UK staff a good laugh if you have a UK email address British disabled people can use but are then of course completely ignored by Microsoft.

                          • Provide CSP ability to add Communication Credit for O365 Customer

                            Currently, CSP's do not have the technical ability to add Communications Credits to a customer's O365 E5 subscription to allow capability of assigning a 1-800 toll-free number. As a CSP and reseller, asking the customer to purchase an O365 E5 subscription outside of the CSP can cause confusion when providing support (for both the CSP & Customer), can cause concern from a reseller's perspective, and only complicates IT support. Request the product group enable the capability for a CSP to procure/provision Communication Credits on behalf of customers.

                            • Improve Skype Accessibility on the desktop versions of Skype for Mac and Windows

                              Skype version 8 is horrible for screen reader users. The new web interface is very sluggish and extremely difficult to navigate and use with VoiceOver on the mac or a Windows screen reader. Please either revert back to Skype 7 which had a much better UI or significantly improve the accessibility of these new versions.
                              I will continue using Skype 7 on macOS and Windows until they either stop working or the accessibility of the new versions returns to the state it was in Skype 7.

                                • Change the landing point for keyboard focus on returning to the Contacts tab to the "Find someone or dial a number" area

                                  In Skype for Business, it used to be that if I was on the Contacts tab and I used Ctrl + n to move to another tab and then Ctrl + 1 to return to the Contacts tab, my focus was in the same place as I'd left it. Getting to the "Find someone or dial a number" edit could take a lot of keystrokes. When I go to that tab, the edit area is where i want to be almost every time

                                  A recent update (I'm now on 16.0.8201.2200) changed this so that now when I return to the…
