      • Windows Server Core Accessibility

        Windows 10 accessibility is great but there is no thought about accessibility on the Windows Server Core development. I am completely blind and I need to use Windows Server Core. Maybe allow the enabling of an SSH server in an answer file that can be passed to the installer just like previous versions of Windows installs. Then I could ssh to the server core instance and have full access.

          • ENSURE that all commands have an ALT key command and that they are documented

            I have spent a year and a half trying to get a complete list of Alt key commands for Office with no success. You only have a tiny fraction of the commands. The great majority of what you have are shortcut keys like Ctrl+Shift+S.

                • Incorrect opening times for telephone conversations with UK disability helpdesk,

                  Telephone opening times, needs to updated weekly to see if they are correct.
                  It is not the first time were found at the weekend, opening stated times on the website does not correspond when actually using it..
                  Especially important for dyslexics who want to speak not try to use the computer and voice recognition software at the same time too stressful when there's an issue.

                  • Add the ability for Narrator to play sounds instead of speaking formatting information.

                    Narrator, at this time, uses spoken prompts to describe formatting. This requires more ability to parse information than print-reading people need to. Print readers don't hear "this is a bold test end bold." They see the bolded word or phrase. The blind should have the same experience, or as close as possible. There are two ways this may be achieved. Sounds for different formatting information may be played, but over time these may become confusing to the blind user as to what exactly is going on with the font if the sounds are too similar. The other option is the…

                    • 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!

                        Tables within oneNote need to be "smart" I

                        love onenote. I use in for all my organizational needs, however, it would be great to have simple tables that could do imbedded formulas and such, so you don't have to go back-forth from excel and imbed files every time you need to change a number.

                        I would love it, if you copy and paste or send to "onenote" from another Microsoft products, it cares all the properties with it (similar to powerpoint, when you imbed an excel -- but better).

                        I talked with a developer at the USBLN conference last year,…

                        • 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…

                          • Windows 10 having trouble with refresh rate

                            I have seizures, and ever since Windows XP, the updates from Windows seem to give me more and more problems. I have multiple devices, so I am able to compare between the various versions, and When I am forced to use a Windows 10 computer set-up, I tend to require additional medication to stay safe.

                            I am hoping someone has some ideas. I am aware of others that are having the same concerns.

                            • 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.

                                • GroupMe

                                  Hi,

                                  I know that GroupMe is part of the Skype Family, but can you add it to this list for Microsoft feedback accessibility? This would help me to send it directly to developers about accessibility issues like bugs.

                                  I gave some feedback regarding accessibility issues to developers on App Store (under Review), but hasn't fixed the issues for a while.

                                  Thank you,
                                  Otto

                                    Would love it if you included beeline in as an extension/plugin for all of your products, or even better incorporated it directly into the windows system so that it could be used w/ all system fonts/text & make it configurable via ease of access or perhaps display settings. After first the beeline chrome extension & then the pdf plugin I can wholeheartedly say this is one of the coolest & truly helpful tools in increasing not only my reading speeds but comprehension as well. I've tried many different speed reading tools, software & techniques, some of which were good, but…

                                      Hi,

                                      During scan mode on web browser, when I press "h" to move heading by heading, Narrator initially speaks "heading level 1 (2, 3, etc.)" and then speaks the title.

                                      I would like narrator to speak a title and then "heading level" WHEN I PRESS "h".

                                      It's similar to other screen readers like JAWS and NVDA.

                                      I also have an issue with news.google.com - When I pressed "h" in Internet Explorer, the Narrator skipped headings for headlines, but JAWS and NVDA can can do that.

                                      And for Microsoft Edge, Narrator can jump to headings nicely, but it initially spoke URL…

                                        • fix the Win10 accessability release so that Security Essentials works...mine hasn't been able to update since I installed Win10!

                                          The accessibility WIN10 I installed hasn't been able to update Security Essentials since day #1. Nothing I have done, including reinstallation and installation of the "Fall Creator's Update" (whatever that is...) 1709 hasn't helped. I've had to buy Malwarebytes to keep things alive. And since your little subject box above doesn't offer "Security", I've had to select something irrelevant.

                                          And simply trying to do normal maint. updates results in some sort of "organizational" message -- I'm a standalone installation!
