    • Regarding this website

      Hi, when I wrote my feedback about narrator, the feedback asked me to fill my email and then submitted it.

      After a few days, I hadn't received any notifications or emails from Microsoft team, so I went back to to the website again. I checked my feedback and you already responded to me. That's strange.

      I remembered last year when I voted or submitted my feedback, I would get emails from Outlook.

      Can you investigate this issue?

      • Dictionary feature for Narrator

        The narrator doesn't support customizing pronunciation feature for specific words. For instance, if narrator pronounces some words incorrectly, Narrator can change the pronunciation in dictionary setting like JAWS and NVDA.

        • Remove the often inappropriate smile in the :O emoticon animation

          Please change the :O animation so the in-between state is no longer a smile.

          The :O smiley is used in a lot of occasions where a smile is simply wildly inappropriate (e.g. legitimate shock and surprise over a bad event), so the current animation is very out of touch with the actual use. If you need to keep the silly animation, revert between a neutral face and the open mouth, and not a smile and an open mouth.

            • Add missing access keys to all recently added commands in Visual Studio that are missing them

              No, not hot keys. No, not command bindings. Access keys are the letters that get underlined in menu text when you use the ALT key to open a menu.

              • Soundscape and use with blue tooth hearing aids.

                1. In Uk 25% of visually impaired also have hearing defects. Many contemporary digital hearing aids have the capacity toluse blue tooth which means users who are hearing as well as sight impaired can use their aids at the same time as Sounscape

                Its a great Ap. Considerably extends my ability to get round and identify where I am as well as helps resolve situations in which you are not sure where you are. Some UK National Health Hearing Aid Services will supply a digital blue tooth enabled hearing aid to those who can demonstrate a need for it.

                • add a apply button to test high contrast with out saving every iteration

                  Its REALLY poor design that for every time we test a HC color change we have to name it and save it and this burns time and also likely clutters a log file somwhere

                  There needs to be a cancel apply and OK button .

                  If apply is clicked then it shows the change for 15 Sec ( just like how Display Resouiton is done!) and If you confirm then it offers to let you save it as a preset.
                  If you do nothing ., with in 15 Sec it reverts to last setting and you can try a diff…

                    • Need assistance with speech. I am a mute. Need anything that helps me speak especially over a phone.

                      No category for speech in any Windows program. Need to type and have windows speak without delay and saved phrases. Especially for cell phone use.

                      • Accessibility issue for GroupMe

                        Hi,

                        Regarding GroupMe on iOS app and Website, users liked my messages, but screen readers could not read likes. I wanted to know who liked my messages. I know sighted people can see likes, but I don't.

                        Also, Voice-Over cannot see date and time for messages on iOS app.

                        Unfortunately, I'm not sure about Android app because I don't have it, but you should investigate it.

                        Can you please fix the issue?

                        Thank you,
                        Otto

                        • Please can we crop images in one note rather than having to do it externally?

                          I love OneNote but when I've screen shot something I'd love to be able to re crop if necessary. I miss the screen clipping tool from OneNote2016 but I'm trying really hard to use the windows X one (as I'll be expecting my staff to use it from September)

                          • Windows has poorer accessibility for people with low vision

                            I have macular degeneration, and I use a 29-inch HD monitor with Magnifier on in the inverted color mode to improve readability of documents (all have black text on a white surface). When I use Magnifier to increase a 6 or 8 point a fund to the size of a 16-point font, the result is ragged-looking and hard to read. The Microsoft speech recognition tutorial was hard to use because I had to magnify the readings until their raggedness make it hard to read them. If I am working with a dark-themed website that has small text, I can’t magnify…

                              MS have so many product.
                              But, everyone has his security system.
                              And It is hard to change login.

                                        • Make the braille onscreen keyboard of iOS accessible with outlook and Word

                                          If I write a new E-Mail in the outlook APP for iOS, I often use the on screen braille Keyboard from Voice Over in the rotor. This work fine, but in the body edit field, it isn't possible to flick right to enter a new line.
                                          If i Write with this keyboard in Word, every seccond letter isn't spoken from Voice Over, if I write "hello", Voice Over will only say "h l o".
                                          Could you please fix these problems? In other fields, like in the notes App, there aren't souch problems.
