  1. Notification sounds for each app

    Is there an option to change the notification sound for a specific notification sender in Windows 10 PC Version?

    For example, I would like the Calendar program play a custom, "Appointment due", but for Mail, "You have mail", Security and Maintenance play an "Alert" sound, etc. similar to how it can be done in Win 10 Mobile. It will be a great feature, cause I will know what notification I got, when I'm not close to my laptop and instead of running unnecessary, I will know just with the sound

  2. Audible alarm for power option

    I have a suggestion regarding the power options. I think that there must be an option to provide some sort of audible alarm when the battery of the laptop charges to 100%. This I think is very necessary because I always forget to unplug the charger even after the battery of my laptop gets charged 100% due to concentration in my work. And this has resulted in damaging my laptop battery. So I looked for a similar option in the power options but I could not find one. I am a nontech person so I barely have any idea about…

  4. Sound changes with gps uncertainty

    I would like to understand the GPS position uncertainty. One way to communicate uncertainty might be to change the audio alerts frequency.

  5. ”No motion” detection

    Soundscape does not seem to detect when I am sitting still, as it repeats information about my neighbourhood repeatedly. Can be solved?

  6. Soundscape + Minecraft Earth = Blind Friendly Minecraft

    Just trying out Minecraft Earth and I'm being reminded of the scavenger hunt I had at CSUN 2019. Microsoft, I think if you are able to implement both of these together, you may have a game changer plenty of pun intended.

  9. Can you (Microsoft) please improve the GPS instructions on the Soundscape app?

    I love the new and magnificent app, but am still struggling a little bit with it. Below are my struggles as a legally blind user:


    1. It's too hard for me to determine from which direction my destination is by just listening to the beacon. Can you please find a better way to have the app guide me to my destination?


    2. Can the GPS instructions be made easier to understand for the visually impaired? I can't interpret directions based on street names and numbers. I would prefer that the app tells me how to get to my destination by referring to…

  10. Allow Multipoint Connectivity for ReSound Linx 3d Hearing Aids and Windows 10 Bluetooth

    Please ensure Multipoint Connectivity between WINDOWS 10 and the ReSound Linx 3d Hearing Aids. I wear two and would desperately enjoy being able to listen to music with my children. Currently, with only one connection, I alone get to hear the music or Just the laptop speakers. Both should be able to stream at the same time. The new world of music is open to me now and I cannot share in it properly with my family.

  12. Add the ability to edit incorrect OSM POI (point of interest) data in Soundscape.

    Since Open Streetmap is a community-driven mapping product, it would be very useful if the Soundscape app allowed a user to correct the details on an existing point of interest or add new POI data. I have not found an accessible way to do this as a blind person.
