  2. PowerPoint presenter slide view

    The new version of PowerPoint after 2010 has removed the view of presenter to see the slides at 1 glance on the same presenter view. It only allows for the next slide view. The previous version is very useful when presentation is more fluid and spontaneous.

    Create option for the 2 types of presenter view for different uses.

  3. Provide more option to dark mode

    In dark mode you provide custom but it can only select 2 which effect the whole system. I hope your provide either by apps or system. For example, you create custom mode for default app or something. Why not you make the custom more choices such as in custom mode: fixe explre or chrome apps or other apps can choose light or dark. Truth to be told i'm very dissapointed with the update. Although i like dark theme, but i dont like the chrome & file explore change to dark. My eyes feel constrain & tired when i see them.

  5. Add markers to the text cursor

    ZoomText is a very heavy resources application. I enjoy everything it offers, but I had enough of the lag and system crashes. Try adding a feature to add markers to the text cursor! It helps me figure out where my cursor is.

  6. Grammar check improvement

    When I type person-first language in Microsoft word (e.g. persons who are blind) it flags the phrase as "too wordy." Please integrate person-first language into your grammar check algorithm so it stops flagging my person-first language. Thanks!

  8. Keyboard options needed

    Would love to see a new ergo keyboard designed for those who are visually impaired. I love my Microsoft wave keyboard but because I’m visually impaired it’s sometimes tough to use. Would love to see a version of it that is accessible.

  9. People with visual disabilities need to be able to better identify each object in the Windows 10 interface

    People who see badly have basically two problems: seeing objects on the screen poorly and distinguishing colors badly. Windows 10 only cares about the second aspect by facilitating the enhancement of contrast, but it does not make it easier for users to see interface elements well. All visible objects in Windows 10 are too "flat" and there are almost no visual differences when they are selected or receive focus. The interface elements have no volume and this forces people with visual disabilities to make a great visual effort to distinguish them.

    Users who see little should be able to easily…

  10. Starguard- juvinile macular degeneration p night blindness

    Ihave Starguard, I am 86 years old. I have to magnify at least 20X just to navigate. But since I cannot tolerate bright lights and still see anything. I would appreciate if the icons could be removed in all cases or made just an outline. Then I could see to navigate the screen.. Surely it cannot be so difficult to have a switch to turn them off complete or make an outline.

  12. provide hotkey for immersive reader view in Edge

    It would be really helpful to have a hotkey to bring up the immersive reader view in the new Microsoft Edge. I will use this feature a lot and want to be able to get to it as quickly as possible when using the keyboard with a screen reader..

  16. Couple Microsoft translator to induction hearing loops

    As far as I am aware I do not have hearing loss. I was in a noisy situation. It had hearing induction loop functionality. If my mobile phone would be able to capture that and use captions with translator, I could follow like any person with a hearing aid.

  17. When will the equation editor be accessible with a screen reader?

    Creating online content with PowerPoint is great, but the equation editor is not accessible! There is MathType, but you are unable to make true inline equations that are also accessible. Are there any plans to make the equation editor accessible or make it easier for MathType to be inline and accessible at the same time in PowerPoint?

  19. Please make the MS Office TTS service 'Read Aloud' and icon standard across suites

    Please make the TTS service 'Read Aloud' & the accompanying icon the standard for MS Office suites. I've only just found the PowerPoint & Excel 'Speak' function and it's not as good. I haven't found any info on hotkeys to be able to toggle the TTS speak and pause yet for PP & Excel which is a shame. If you can also add in the 'screen masking' from 'Focus assist' that would be awesome. Another thing is you should get some inspiration from 'Texthelp' they have a tonne of features in their software but it's not reliable.... Something that would…

  20. Give control of email message page colour without changing recipient view

    As a user I want full control of email message body page colour Without changing recipient view which may cause issues with recipients devices, compatibility, plus they may have a disability themselves so what works for me may hurt their eyes

    I changed this message body page background using "page" colour setting to be dark blue with pale text. I didnt realise this page colour changed recipients view too.
