  1. Make Windows10 free for everyone. Keep it simple. Am disabled, got talked out of the Free download.

    I have an energy deficit disorder. About to give up on the complexity and jargon of Windows and go to Linux if I cant get Windows10 free. It will not download when I tick assistive technologies box. Also I cant get into my microsoft account here and get sent round in circles. I feel like sending a snailmail as this is all so stupidly difficult.

  2. Remove reports on XBOX systems it's getting out of hand

    People don't deal with other XBOX gameplayers well enough to block them but just reports them instead who aren't being abusive or threatening
    I thought people were smart enough to block people if they don't want to hear from someone if they send a message on their XBOX account
    People probably send in more reports on people than blocking them and it ruins peoples gaming which could lead to people getting permanently suspended on XBOX Live for no reason

  3. For narrator, it might be a good idea to have announcements of individuals typing when in the skype moddern app.

    When using the desktop client for skype with third party screanreaders, there is a notification when in a conversation window indicating when a user is typing. For narrator, as of right now, I do not see this feature and think it would be a much needed implementation in helping Narrator become the screanreader it should be. Love the work so far, however, and am looking forward to seeing more developments and new features!

  4. Flag Windows store apps that are particularly accessible.

    I don't want to purchase or even install a ton of apps only to find I won't be able to read their screens with narrator. Can Microsoft give apps that are especially accessible an award or something so I can search for just those?

  7. Spell check in PowerPoint should check the spelling of alternative text

    When running a spell check in PowerPoint it does not check the spelling of alternative text in the "description" field. This means that most alternative text is likely to be misspelled and poorly written with no oversight because it would not be seen by a copy editor . When alt text is misspelled it may not be pronounced correctly or translated into contracted Braille correctly. People with disabilities deserve to have alternatives that are spelling correctly just like everyone else.

  8. The bulgarian voice IVAN spells out unknown words written in latin text

    The bulgarian voice IVAN, available in the Windows 10 Insider Preview, spells (pronounces character by character) some words. In my observations, those are the words which are written in latin characters but are not strictly in english. For example - my name is Kostadin Kolev and IVAN spells it out character by character, instead of reading the two words as whole words.

  9. The bulgarian voice IVAN pronounces some words incorrectly

    The bulgarian voice IVAN, available in the Windows 10 Insider Preview, pronounces some words incorrectly. It inserts small pauses inside the words and it seams that it sometimes stresses the wrong syllables. It is hard to explain, unfortunately. But hear how wrongly it pronounces the word "интервал", for example - it inserts an unnecessary pause between "ин" and "тервал". This word is only an example and it is far from being the only problematic one. I haven't found a pattern (if there is one) for the words which are affected by this, unfortunately.

  10. Great Accessibiltiy Team

    I just want to extend my appreciation to Microsoft for having a team of professionals that provide outstanding support to those of us with certain physical issues. My Hard Drive failed and Microsoft Accessibility team stayed with me and took control of my computer and reinstalled W10. The technicians were friendly, understanding, and subject matter experts and I just wanted to publicly thank them. From an Idea POV, I think it would be a great marketing tool to offer one hour of free support to all authorized users; No one in the Industry is doing that and I think that…

  12. Narrator won't stop reading titles

    When switching windows or a new one opens, Narrator won't stop reading the title of the window until it has fully read it. When a key is pressed, Narrator won't interrupt itself and keeps reading the title of the window until the title has been fully read. After the title of the window is read, Narrator behaves normally. This also applies to edit fields, or anything with a long title. For example, this very edit box behaves like this. The phrase "Describe your idea" keeps being read, even if I press arrow keys to navigate the text. The update that…

  14. Add options to change the way Narrator indicates capital letters.

    Narrator should allow the user to specify how capital letters are voiced. For example, options could include changing pitch, saying capital, or saying nothing at all. I would especially like the nothing feature because the SAPI Vocalizer voice I use already says capital when reading capital letters. This means when the voice is used with Narrator, I hear capital capital a, capital capital b, etc.

  16. look at your website

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-sg/store/d/surface-pro/8NKT9WTTRBJK/1QS3

    has a page that has questionable feature listing.
    "• The New Surface Pro produces more sound that Surface Pro 4 (15%) & Surface Pro 3 (30%) "

    Does that mean that the New Surface Pro produces more noise??

    Also, reporting this is difficult as there is no simple email to mail this to. Hence, not surprised that those people whom discovered before I did tried but gave up to inform you guys about this.

  18. Win10 creator update overall fine. One problem: the supplied screensaver will no longer quit with mousemove or space bar or esc.

    Now I need to do ctrl-alt-del to get out of screensaver. Is there a fix? It's not a big deal, just would like it to work appropriately.
