  1. Bug when we are using Narrator through Chrome

    We are facing a problem when we use Narrator to read content via Chrome.

    In Chrome, any HTML select control can be switched pressing keyboard up/down, also can be switched pressing Enter then use up/down.
    Once we start Narrator and make a HTML select control in focus, it does not work through keyboard up/down, we have to press "Enter" to display panel which contains all options, but it also does not work if we press up/down in option panel, it will close current panel and move to next section.

  4. Excel and magnifier suggestion

    The first idea is that when using magnifier it would be useful to have the reading commands available in the right-click menu options.

    For Excel when using magnifier it would be useful to have the row and column data show up at the top vertical and the left horizontal edges of the magnification portal for the cell you are editing. I think this would help people keep track of the cell that there in, which is a common problem.

  5. Product tiles on the Microsoft website seem to fail WCAG 2.1

    On the Microsoft products website (Ex.: URL - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/collections/surfacelist?icid=MSCOMQLSurface&headerid=department-surface), the product tiles themselves appear to fail WCAG 2.1 because the light gray rectangle that the images of the products are on has insufficient color contrast with the background.

    Accessibility Insights for Windows states (in the Contrast section, UI components) that "Any visual boundary that indicates the component's clickable area" must have a contrast ratio of at least 3:1 against the adjacent background.

    That light grey rectangle only has a contrast of 1.14:1 against the white background.

    I understand this isn't a part of the Accessibility Webinar, but…

  8. SAVED Caption during Team once it is done recorded - can reread/rewatch later with caption on

    i am unable to find Microsoft team - Team meeting during the live needs to be saved with caption once it is done recorded.

    Also I learned that while Teams has live captioning available for regular customers, it is not available for organizations like us who use the government cloud. That is something that needs to be improved

  15. traumatic brain injury disability

    For many, many years I've worked through technical game analysis to find out I possess the disability of severe traumatic brain injury. As much as I've learned, I still have it, yet I feel I can assist Microsoft into understanding the needs of tbi users to assist you into gaining a much better understanding of how to assist them to use Windows. Will.

  19. What webinar platform?

    On the accessibility webinar page at https://sway.office.com/ofnj0y3PT7dnqb0Z?ref=Link, perhaps it would be good to let potential participants know, in advance, what webinar access platform you use. So simple, yet not done.
