  1. 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.

  2. 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).

  4. Fix Image Resizing Issue Please

    Skype has been resizing images sent to other users with at least the last two versions of it. I emailed support a while ago about this, and my Skype just updated to version 8.27.0.85 today. Hoping they fixed this issue, but they did not. When I send an image, lets say at 2560 x 1440 resolution, or when someone sends me when, Skype is resizing it to 2048 x 1152 automatically. Why? Please fix this.

  6. NEW skype version 8, put back the 2 status options taken away, everyone I know, is not happy they are not included in the NEW Skype.

    New Skype version 8 has removed 'away' and 'invisible' - please put them back, Everyone I know is resisting the new up-date, and staying with 'classic' as long as possible. The new version should have more options, not less. Everyone is used to them, why were they removed?
    'away' still allows messages to pass through, 'do not disturb' and off-line do not ... ? Green / Yellow / Red and OFF, what is the problem?
    VOTE - we want them back.

  7. Stop Reading the chat message as I type it in Skype 8 for Mac

    I am using Skype 8 on macOS High Sierra with VoiceOver. When I type into the chat box, VoiceOver reads what I have typed up to the current point as I press each character. If this is a feature, it needs to be removed asap! The only workaround seems to be disabling VoiceOver which is not ideal.

  8. 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

  10. 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

  11. Remove the often inappropriate smile in the :O emoticon animation

    Please change the :O animation so the in-between state is no longer a smile.

    The :O smiley is used in a lot of occasions where a smile is simply wildly inappropriate (e.g. legitimate shock and surprise over a bad event), so the current animation is very out of touch with the actual use. If you need to keep the silly animation, revert between a neutral face and the open mouth, and not a smile and an open mouth.

  12. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  20. I am suggesting that Microsoft should never allow Two Unknown Networks ,that you all alert about, to configure and run on that account your

    my windows 10 was taken over by the unkown networks that you alerted me about. Then allowed for instance skype to create a profile for me on their own. Then Microsoft configured and ran the unknown networks you alerted me about.
