  1. Make it easier to help customers

    I have been locked out of my emails as I am overseas. I have done everything step by step as asked several times and still no avail. Have tried to call help line and nothing? I need my email account unlocked as I am travelling and it is vital to me overseas and for work purposes back home!

    • narrator with math content

      every screen reader has serious issue with math content. some require you to install special software to read content in MS word or on the web. I wish, Microsoft takes initiative to improve this situation. maybe Microsoft should be improve the accessibility of MS word and work on narrator to add support for math reading.
      perhaps, Microsoft gives me any option to write and read math in MS word or Microsoft edge using narrator.

      • An audible alert for Notification bar

        With magnification (or even a screen reader), it is often impossible to know that the notification bar has popped up and is awaiting some response. A simple bing sound would alert users to press Alt-N to answer the question. Ideally, focus would automatically move to the notification bar.

          • make the num lock and fn lock more compatible, bc now they override each other

            when you engage both the fn lock and num lock you can't use the ZERO '0' button anymore. change that maybe? I hit num lock to actually use the numbers.... seems pretty stupid considering people prob use the 0 key way more than some list icon. this is why people by macs. maybe make the functions as the default so we don't need to fn lock....more people have to be changing the screen brightness and volume WAY MORE that using F5 or whatever!!! are you serious

            • start dictation using the Eye Control Keyboard

              have some way for me to turn on Dictation, either from the Eye Control Keyboard or maybe add a dwell button on the Eye Control Launchpad to open dictation (attach it to a window much like how scroll works).

                • Reconsider cutting of so many people by not making it possible to use older versions of Skype.

                  People with older computers cannot update to newer versions of browsers and cannot therefore update to newer versions of Skype - they are left out! not able to use what they relied on for so long sometimes as their only means of communications. In combination with the constant signing in (on the same computer!), the many "security" requirements, make it more and more impossible to use Skype. And I pay for the service! Even here below!! I want to make a suggestion or comment, but have to give you all my info and agree to everything!?

                    • ADVISE WHEN Seeing AI app will be available on Android phones. Help near blind folks know if they must buy a new Apple iPhone? Or wait?

                      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.

                      • Change how the GroupMe Calendar functions

                        It would be better if events could be created in the GroupMe calendar without it posting immediately. For example; I’m the Volleyball team mom. I would like to be able to go into the calendar and put all events in at once and have it automatically post on the day of the event. Also, give an option to remove the ‘going? Yes. No’.

                          • Fix Image Resizing Issue Please

                            Skype has been resizing images sent to other users with at least the last two versions of it. I emailed support a while ago about this, and my Skype just updated to version 8.27.0.85 today. Hoping they fixed this issue, but they did not. When I send an image, lets say at 2560 x 1440 resolution, or when someone sends me when, Skype is resizing it to 2048 x 1152 automatically. Why? Please fix this.

                            • Faster mouse keys

                              Hi,

                              The current top speed of mouse keys is not fast enough. Would it be possible to make the top speed parameter be even higher?
                              (without the use of ctrl)

                              • Add enhanced pointers for Magnifier

                                Unlike the Magnifier in Apple OS, Windows Magnifier does not provide an extra large, enhanced pointer suitable for low vision users. Instead, Windows offers an extra large pointer pack which is ineffective for many low vision users because it is too small and lacks proper emphasis.

                                Additionally, the said pointer pack does not address the needs of low vision users who suffer from field-of-vision loss. Such users require additional enhancements which make it easier to continously track the cursor. Instead, Windows provides two outdated features which are ineffective for many low vision users: Press Control to locate the cursor vis…

                                • Please stop the incessant updates.

                                  An occasional update would have been bearable. But these update notifications just. wont. stop. And despite all the "warnings" and the schedule changes i make, sometimes it just restarts on its own eating away my time when i most need it. I don't know if it's too late for window 10, but please just finish your product and be done with it the next time if its possible. Badger people who want to updates and leave those perfectly fine with a basic version alone. Thanks.

                                  • Add dragging capabilities into your eye gaze mouse emulation feature.

                                    While the eye gaze mouse emulation is decent, there is no way to drag items across the screen. For power users of Tobii Dynavox, that is a key piece. They have it built in to the software to work on Windows 7 but have now discontinued the product for 10. I have several clients who would go with a 2 and 1 computer it had the dragging feature.

                                    • Please Improve https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Accessibility/feedback

                                      Please improve all speech recognition features to accept all commands given to it on the next updates. It does not understand a simple command to "undo that" when I told it in word 365, it started printing my document. Not the command I gave it. The speech recognition shows commands other than what was actually said as the online tech heard what I was telling it to do in a screen share session, but everything was all wrong in the command window.

                                      • Stop Reading the chat message as I type it in Skype 8 for Mac

                                        I am using Skype 8 on macOS High Sierra with VoiceOver. When I type into the chat box, VoiceOver reads what I have typed up to the current point as I press each character. If this is a feature, it needs to be removed asap! The only workaround seems to be disabling VoiceOver which is not ideal.
