    • Seeing AI: Tiny change to info.plist to include CFBundleURLSchemes would allow this app to be launched from other apps.

      Tiny (dozen config lines) change to info.plist to include CFBundleURLSchemes would allow this app to be launched from other apps. For the visually impaired user, this could allow Seeing AI to be launched by voice command from another app for instance.

          Enhance the accessibility of Microsoft Teams with screen readers. We are moving to Microsoft Teams for all of our internal communications and I am not able to fully use Microsoft Teams. 1. Please add hotkeys to quickly move to various parts of Microsoft TEams. Currently, I have to tab to things on the screen and that is assuming that focus will move to areas. Sometimes, it does and sometimes it does not. 2. The calls tab and contacts or basically any of the tabs on the Calls tab are not accessible. This is a problem because I can not call…

          • Narator will not read column and row titles

            Have a setting in Narator where we can set row and column title reading with the option to set it to what ever row or column we choose. Jaws has this feature Caps V will give five options of verbosity but non of them make any change using Narator.

            • MS Removal tool finds thousands of infected files after days of scanning. Doesn't remove a single one. Why??

              MS Removal tool finds several thousand infected files after a couple of days of scanning. Doesn't remove a single one, a I start it again and it shows the same pattern. Why?? What is it doing? How is that useful? Others like McAfee, Chrome,... don't find any, and when they do, the report the virus and how they cleaned it. A second scan doesn't show it again .... Maybe Linux or Apple is a much better OS? I used MS since the DOS days, but now I wonder.....

              • Save call captions to transcript file

                When I use the automated captions or CART to provide real-time captions during a call, I want to have the complete transcript available to edit and use afterwards.
                This would be brilliant for writing minutes/notes or creating transcripts for videos or blogs posts etc.
                For these purposes, it would be ideal if it could label the speaker too.

                    All day events that only run for a single day are now not bold and are left justified. Please make them bold and centered like all my other all day events that last longer than one day

                    • Xbox enforcement team and Reports

                      The Xbox enforcement team should better control the Reports from other players, and I mean that because by that I mean it's annoying when you get a communication ban for unnecessary things, even though you've just told the person his opinion without offending him , but what I also find unfair is that I'm an anime fan and I like to upload music videos but the Xbox enforcement team is almost constantly blocking my videos and then claiming something that did not appear in the video.

                        • Narrator+Up Arrow for everything, please

                          first of all, thanks for bringing traditional keyboard commands to Narrator, that really helps. However, I would like to suggest you to match other screen readers' experience in one point: the Narrator+Up Arrow (or, I believe, Narrator+I in more Narrator'esque terms) reads the current line, which is nice and good. However, if I'm not on a line of *text*, Narrator dings at me and says like "Not in explorable text". Actually, whenever you press Insert+Up Arrow when using other screen readers, you always get feedback: if you're in File Explorer, you get the focused file or folder; if you're on…

                          • My feedback is about Narrator in Windows 10S.

                            Hello. I have recently been made aware that Microsoft Surface products Have begun shipping with microsoft’s signature secure OS, Windows 10S. This means that only applications from the Microsoft Store can be installed on these devices. I understand that for many years, Microsoft has relied heavily on its partnerships with screen reader manufacturers such as Freedom Scientific and NVDA. However, if Windows 10S is truly going to be the future of Windows OS, the time may be fast approaching for Narrator screen reader to become a fully functioning screen reader, able to be compatible with every native Windows/Microsoft program, as…

                                I have a Microsoft Surface Keyboard and I love it, however I have developed lateral epicondylitis from using a poorly designed mouse that was too big & heavy for my arm. To be set up with correct ergonomics I cannot use my Surface Keyboard, as I need to reach too far to the right to use my mouse, which exacerbates the pain in my wrist. Microsoft has an ergonomic keyboard with the separate key pad, why not extend that to the Surface Keyboard please? It doesn't even need to be "ergonomic" - just an alternative for those who need to…

                                  • Narrator support for Google Chrome

                                    Hi it would be really helpful if Windows Narrator was made accessible for Google Chrome as a lot of people have their data saved in their Google account and it is a lot easier to keep your info synced across all of your devices e.g. your android phone and PC and Chromebooks. I would like to see Narrator work the same way in Chrome as it works in Internet explorer. I would also appreciate if you allow scripting for Narrator as it does not work with companies own programs.

                                    • Microsoft Family - Screen Time

                                      Hi, I would like to have a feature where I could give additional time to my child from the Microsoft Family home screen web site, without the need to have my kid request additional time via email.

                                      Also, I would like to have a very granular time assignment possible outside of the predefined time templates (15, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours and 8 hours).
                                      Sometime I just want to give 20 minutes, but in the current model this is not possible.

                                      It would also be nice to have the ability to stop any allotted time immediately via web site.

                                      • Windows 10 afecta negativamente a las personas con deficiencia visual

                                        La organización para la que trabajo desplegó Windows 10 hace algo más de un año. En ella trabajan muchas personas con todo tipo de deficiencias visuales y la sensación que me transmiten es que el interfaz de Windows 10 les cansa mucho la vista. Es más, algunos de ellos han decidido usar lectores de pantalla (JAWS) porque piensan que están perdiéndola.

                                        Creo que esta percepción que me transmiten los usuarios tiene su lógica ya que con el nuevo interfaz (micho más plano) no tienen elementos de referencia que les permitan no forzar la vista todo el tiempo de trabajo.

                                        ¿Podría…

                                        • be good if you had an automatic spell and grammer check built in

                                          would make it much easier for people with bad eyesight and make spelling mistakes
