  1. Neuropathy Symptoms

    Mouse that Dampens hands that shake. I have Parkinson's Tremor and have lost my sense of touch in both hands and feet. You cannot believe how frustrating it is when for example, you want to check a box. The cursor looks like it has been possessed and goes all over the place. I get it done but often wonder if you like my camera, cound come up with a stableation system in either the mouse and or software. I must type with one finger and have to aim at the keyboard to get the proper key. The talk to print…

    • App Fonts & Visual Accessibility Design Options

      I opened a ticket with Premier support and was told to go submit my comments and vote at https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293346-outlook-for-android/suggestions/8687848-edit-app-font-font-size-and-color-in-email. I was surprised it had so many votes, yet it was DECLINED and commenting was closed!

      The only accessibility option in the Outlook for Android app is for contrast - which isn't that great. Our agency has many visually-impaired users with various levels of disability. They are unable to use email on their phones because there are no real accessibility options in the Outlook app and setting up their email in the native app isn't an option because we are…

      • Teams Chat

        Please add the functionality that we had in Skype to Teams Chat. I am using an enterprise version. Skype did all these.

        • OBVIOUS COMMUNICATIONS DISCONNECT

          Fore whatever reason, you repeatedly disconnect and disable my interconnected telephone line from your Microsoft Windows7-Professional O/S. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am disabled, and it is Vital that I have ready access to my telephone whenever I need to communicate. I am not of any one persuasion as to What Your Problem Is; DO NOT DISABLE MY TELEPHONE. fyi. I already spent my own money to configure an adaptive (out-sourced) program file, so that I would be able to have my own telephone to be able to "work with my Windows7-Professional O/S; is it not a violation of the ADA-1990…

            • Include a drag-and-drop setting in eye control

              The windows eye control software is amazing, I'm currently using it with a Tobii tracker and it's made computer use much easier. However, one important feature that's lacking is drag-and-drop functionality. This would allow it to replace even more functions of a mouse

              • Application/Window specific High Contrast

                As an end-user, I would like to be able to enable/disable High Contrast mode at an application or window level.

                There are some applications that I don't want High Contrast enabled for and others that I do. There are times when inverted color is better than high contrast but for a specific app only.

                • Word document tracking colors in High Contrast (and a bug)

                  Document tracking colors don't currently show up in High Contrast. Would be nice if they did.

                  Also, for some reason, some text in Word docs comes through as black so it can't be read in High Contrast mode. This shows up with text in the same paragraph with the same font styles that are visible.

                    Windows 10 DeskTop: It should be possible to replace the instruction for

                    • BOLD TYPE FOR OFFICE RIBBONS

                      The large type is quite an improvement for office ribbons at the top of the page but many folks with low vision have poor contrast perception. If there was an option to make the ribbon icons and letters in BOLD it would be a great help. Also when you send emails it would be helpful if a larger font and bold letters were used.

                      • Re train your support tchs They are horrible! Only had one good experience in te last year. They are rude, don't always answer question. Th

                        Most of your support desk don't know anything about a mentl disabiltis. They don't speak english. I can't understand what they're saying! Don't ou screen thee people, or are they out of the country? Thet're rude and have no patience/ I feel stupid after I call them. There are always long periods of silence if I ask too many quesions. It's ridiculous I'm sorry to because it is such a great idea.

                          • eliminating need to make further calls to tech support

                            I am happy that I was able to get outlook up and running, but if the tech went a bit slower and explained what they were doing, I might be able to set it myself when I get a new computer and not have to rely on their help to do it.

                            • Outlook font

                              Please make it possible to automatically change the font on INCOMING Outlook email messages to a font that is the recipient's choice, rather than the sender's choice. This would make it so much easier to read emails sent in fonts or sizes that are difficult for some people to read (dyslexic could change all incoming mail to a particular font, or visually impaired could change font size to larger/particular color) without having to manually edit the formatting of each message.

                              • Windows 10 High Contrast and Mouse Pointer Size/Color

                                When switching between normal and high contrast mode in Windows 10, the mouse pointer accessibility settings should not change.

                                Currently, I select the larger mouse pointer and inverted pointer color in the accessibility settings. However, when I switch between normal and high-contrast mode, the mouse settings reset to their default values.

                                Instead, mouse settings should not change when switching between normal and high-contrast mode.

                                    Aged near blind must have access to this terrific app. Must they buy an iPhone and scrap their Android device only to find out next day that Seeing AI is now available for Android devices. PLEASE - just let us know WHEN so that we can make intelligent decisions. Surely Microsoft can do better than "We're working on it". Thanks MUCH.

                                    • If you search for "Microsoft Feedback" the following page pops up. see in notes. it is a dead end to give feedback.

                                      If you try to email in the upper right hand corner of the page it pops up an email with the link to this article in it. It is misleading.

                                      • "quick access" in the file search system is laughably not quick.

                                        maybe kick this one through a marketing team. the fact that it's called "quick" is infuriating.

                                        • When you open a doc, exl, or any other application twice the window that opens shouldn't open over the previous window.

                                          Note this is for dual monitor people.
                                          Example: I am working in excel and I tend to have 3 or 4 excel sheets open at a time. if I open a new excel sheet to reference sheet I am working on it opens covering the sheet I am working on. Why not on the other screen. toggle where it opens on the screen. with every app opened.
