    • April 2018 Eye Control doesn't work after Windows restart

      April 2018 Eye Control doesn't work after Windows restart. It works 3 out of 4 times on powerup after Windows shutdown. Old version worked and Tobii Dynavox Windows Control 2 works fine after update and regardless of restart or shutdown.

      • office 2013/16 constantly deactivates with windows 10.

        office 2013/16 deactivates about once a month. It is very difficult to uninstall then reinstall the key for office and doing this isn't exactly very accessible. Please fix this!

        • Send me a Techy.

          I can access Microsoft but Microsoft fails to access my 0-level of technological comprehension. I was born too soon.

          Telling me how to fix it, just doesn't do it. In-person consumer service should be provided for the technically disabled would-be/wanna-be user.

          • One handed controller.

            My step daughter only has the use of her left arm. She can play extremely well despite her disability, but still struggles. She doesn't like the co-pilot add on. She likes to be in control. A controller capable of being comfortably welded with one hand would be ideal.

            • Give us more than three lousy formats to "choose" from on new Outlook Mail

              Fire the 20 y.o. software engineers who keep designing upgrades that cause extreme eye strain. Now we have outlook mail with only three screen choices, one of which is text on the far right...ever heard of astigmatism? NONE of the choices let us look at an extensive list of emails we're working from... Why can't you leave Outlook alone ?

              • Text to speech for people with mutism

                I'm a mute gamer and have microsoft text to speech set up to a virtual audio cable to feed through my mic, problem is it's tedious and impractical to use. The only way to have microsoft text to speech accurately read off what I want is to open text to speech, clear the text, type the text and hit preview voice.

                What we should have is something we can type into, hit enter, have it clear and read off the text typed through text to speech. Something that can easily be alt+tabbed into.

                          • Remove 3rd Party Adapter Blocks

                            My son is quadriplegic and has an adapted X Arcade controller for use with head buttons and an adapter for the X-Box One, purchased in 2015. This is the only way he can use the console
                            All worked just fine until your X Box One software upgrade on Wed 25th April blocked the adapter. Please remove this block immediately as he cannot now use the console at all.

                                  • Hi no screen reader reads copy/move percentage in windows 10, not even narrator. JAWS used to read it every 10 seconds in windows xp/7.

                                    I did find kind of an inconsistent workaround however, if you have more information highlighted, you can press the alt key which brings up some sort of a menu, but often, that menu goes away and you have to keep doing it. I know you can press insert t or b in JAWS to read the percentage, but that is really annoying after a while, especially if you are copying many gigs of files/folders. Thanks.

                                      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.
