  1. Localize Narrator to bulgarian

    Since Windows XP, we in Bulgaria have a bulgarian localization of Windows. Narrator however has always been in english. After the TTS voice "Ivan" was introduced In Windows 10 Insider Preview, I've noticed some partial localization of Narrator to bulgarian (mainly for its messages). In recent insider builds of Windows 10 however, Narrator has reverted to be completely in english. Please localize Narrator to bulgarian, so it is more user-friendly for users of Windows and Narrator in Bulgaria, who are not familiar with the english language.

    Thank you in advance!

    P.S.: If the bulgarian localization team needs assistance or consultation…

  4. make it reasonable to retrieve a forgotten pasasword, instead of going through hopps and hurdles and then declined!!

    This is truly frustrating! I have had my email for a very long time,, I have it programed to my phone, and it is very important to me as I have children and this is the way that I receive emails from their schools. I don’t understand why I can not access my email from any other computer and have tried the forgotten password option. When clearly I was prompted before to change the password that I have used for a long time, I didn’t want to change my password ,but was prompted that I had to change it! Now…

  10. Make signature lines in Office accessible to a screen reader

    In Word 2016, go to the insert menu and click on signature line. If one tabs through the boxes here, they are not labeled. Next, after filling out the unlabeled boxes, press OK. Now a graphic called "Microsoft Office signature line..." is inserted into the document. First, the signature graphic should say "Unsigned Microsoft Office signature line..." so the user knows the line is unsigned. Second, there is no way for the screen reader user to click the signature to sign the line.

  11. Add a Two Switch access mode for the On Screen Keyboard

    Add a manual step scanning option for switch users, for those able to use two switches. E.g. Key1 = Manual step scan. Key2 = Select.

    This would enable some users to use the slick On Screen Keyboard utility much more quickly and deliberately.

  15. Improve the Accessibility of Windows SIM for Screen Reader Users

    There are two main accessibility issues with the Windows System Image Manager (SIM), part of the Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK). First, when you use your screen reader's right-click function to access the right-click menu for the selected component or package, the click targeting is several lines below where the system focus is located. Additionally, you cannot use Shift+F10 to access the context menu. Could these issues please be remedied? These problems were found in the ADK Insider Preview, Build 16288. I am using JAWS 2018 Public Beta.

  18. Use of Dynamic Text type in Microsoft Apps for iOS

    As a visually impaired person, I'm using Apple's in built dynamic text type, setting it at it's largest setting. However some Microsoft apps do not respond well to this. For example, in Cortana for iOS, the weather card is so long as I have the description say "Mostly Cloudy" with each individual letter on a new line pushed up to the right hand side with large amounts of white space. In OneDrive for iOS, the share feature to upload content is a pain, with folders overlapping, and hard to click even the right account. And on the new Edge for…
