    • Make screen easier to read with black larger letters the blue and gray type are too dfficult to read for low vision

      I have used voice recognition for 30 years and with win10 and new update having a difficult time finding where to train it as it sure cannot understand me and wish I knew how to improve it but want to say with out the disability desk I would give up as I am new to being physically and vision limited.

        • Please allow comments to be deletable in Microsoft Office 2016 with the keyboard.

          According to the following article:
          https://support.office.com/en-us/article/insert-or-delete-a-comment-8d3f868a-867e-4df2-8c68-bf96671641e2
          There is no way to delete comments in word with a keyboard.
          This is very difficult to work with as I can't give clients completed, but annotated documents from my coworkers.
          Please fix this ASAP!

          • Bigger controller for people with disabilitys

            I have never owned a Xbox or Sony or played on one due to my physical disabilities. The controller is too small and buttons are too small. I only have use of one hand and the other hand is deformed and small. I have PC as i can use my good arm for the mouse and my deformed hand on the arrows keys. This works very well for games.

            For me to be able to play the Xbox i would need a bigger controller with big buttons with big spaces between buttons. I would use my deform hand on the…

            • Use NVDA instead of Narrator to install Windows 10

              I want to be able to use NVDA during Windows 10 Installation because Narrator is sometimes lagging or doesn't read all Information that's being displayed on the Screen.

              • change the format of your multiple windows in one screen.

                After the three finger swipe, the multi window screen is now a scroll format. Because windows are not in predictable places, quickly changing between windows has become more tedious. Before, I could quickly switch between two windows I am using frequently, but now there is a lot more hovering of my mouse to find the window I need

                • making chat feature in Microsoft Disability Desk better with audio notifications of new messages

                  I'm thinking about having some kind of audio feedback that a message has been received while on the live chat of Microsoft Disability Answer desk. This would hopefully better assist blind/visually impaired users of new messages. As of now, they have to use any screen reader they use to arrow through the messages … almost constantly. With the audio notification, they can make sure a message has come in before useless scrolling through them all. Of course, they can just read the new message upon hearing the audio cue.

                        • Regarding this website

                          Hi, when I wrote my feedback about narrator, the feedback asked me to fill my email and then submitted it.

                          After a few days, I hadn't received any notifications or emails from Microsoft team, so I went back to to the website again. I checked my feedback and you already responded to me. That's strange.

                          I remembered last year when I voted or submitted my feedback, I would get emails from Outlook.

                          Can you investigate this issue?

                          • 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.

                                No, not hot keys. No, not command bindings. Access keys are the letters that get underlined in menu text when you use the ALT key to open a menu.

                                • Soundscape and use with blue tooth hearing aids.

                                  1. In Uk 25% of visually impaired also have hearing defects. Many contemporary digital hearing aids have the capacity toluse blue tooth which means users who are hearing as well as sight impaired can use their aids at the same time as Sounscape

                                  Its a great Ap. Considerably extends my ability to get round and identify where I am as well as helps resolve situations in which you are not sure where you are. Some UK National Health Hearing Aid Services will supply a digital blue tooth enabled hearing aid to those who can demonstrate a need for it.

                                  • add a apply button to test high contrast with out saving every iteration

                                    Its REALLY poor design that for every time we test a HC color change we have to name it and save it and this burns time and also likely clutters a log file somwhere

                                    There needs to be a cancel apply and OK button .

                                    If apply is clicked then it shows the change for 15 Sec ( just like how Display Resouiton is done!) and If you confirm then it offers to let you save it as a preset.
                                    If you do nothing ., with in 15 Sec it reverts to last setting and you can try a diff…

                                      • Need assistance with speech. I am a mute. Need anything that helps me speak especially over a phone.

                                        No category for speech in any Windows program. Need to type and have windows speak without delay and saved phrases. Especially for cell phone use.

                                        • Please can we crop images in one note rather than having to do it externally?

                                          I love OneNote but when I've screen shot something I'd love to be able to re crop if necessary. I miss the screen clipping tool from OneNote2016 but I'm trying really hard to use the windows X one (as I'll be expecting my staff to use it from September)
