  2. Add a pronunciation dictionary to Narrator

    This is a feature that is found in all the other major screen readers. Narrator should include a pronunciation dictionary to customize how the speech synthesizer pronounces certain words if the default pronunciation is incorrect. This is usually done by entering the correct spelling of the word followed by a misspelled version that is pronounced correctly by the TTS voice. Whenever Narrator encounters the correct spelling of the word, it will speak it using the custom pronunciation rule.

  8. A Utility For Identifying Words With Multiple Spellings That Sound the Same

    As a blind writer and editor, my biggest challenge is homonyms and homophones. Current tools allow me to proof for all other aspects of copy, but not this one. Grammar check catches selected ones like it’s verses its, which is helpful. What would be ideal, is a utility that flags every word in a document that is a homonym or homophone, pops up a window with very brief definitions, and lets you verify which spelling you want. It would also be helpful if you could enter exceptions, words you’re confident you already know, in order to streamline the process. Of…

  10. Windows 10s Download

    Please consider making Windows 10s available as a download for older computers. This operating system may work better on older computers and laptops making extending their usefulness. This would be especially helpful for those who may have lower incomes including people with disabilities, students, older citizens, etc.

  11. Add a function to be able to choose to NOT save sent items in your sent folder.

    It would be nice, like in Outlook on a PC, if you could have the option to NOT automatically save sent email (saved in sent folder). Many of us in my office do not like to automatically save sent email. If it's critical, I just cc myself. I was able to do this when I was on a PC. Mac does not give that option.

  14. Outlook - clearly show destination when moving an email into a folder

    In Outlook 2013 I cannot tell which folder I am moving an email into. The color options do not provide a clear trail when I drop an email from the Inbox into a folder. I am low vision; if it goes into the wrong folder, I will never find it.

    There was a fetcher that allowed the enlargement of the font symbols...i would like it to be back, the fact that there is a magnifier does not solve this problem. some of the people do not need magnifier at all only the enlargement of the font under the symbol

  16. Dyslexic interactive

    I feel that being able to verbally interact with Windows would have a powerful effect on a dyslexic senior ability to engage in word!
