  4. Voice commands for teachers

    integrated voice commands in Windows 10 using Cortana, not just for accessibility but broader use, as a teacher would like to walk into a room and say, "Cortana, On Screen" then a series of events would happen to project device screen to front of the room. Say "Cortana, Blank Screen" to hide screen, in classroom say "Cortana, Show Billy's Screen" and so on. Would be many other uses for Cortana commandlets for the Internet of Things.

  5. Make edit hyperlink dialog in word 2016 navigable by keyboard

    In the edit hyperlink dialog in Word 2016, the following undesirable behaviour is observed:


    • Pressing tab to move between elements, as you move from the "link to: existing file or web page" to the "Text to display" edit box, the OK button loses it's default button status. This means when you press ENTER, you get an error ding and nothing happens. The OK button should remain default button.


    • As you press tab and move into "current folder tree view" (the list of files) - the first file is automatically selected and thus the URL you had previously used or typed…

    Thank you for your input. We chatted with the Word Team on these issues:
    • Issue 1: Fixed. This enhancement will start rolling out to Office 365 First Release and Office Insider Customers before Fall.
    • Issue 2: We are working on a fix for this issue now, thank you for your feedback. Our goal is to fix this issue as part of our commitment to accessibility.
    • Issue 3: Unfortunately, we don’t have the ability to fetch the browsing history from most browsers. The team is looking into other potential improvements.

  6. Please make an audible or vibration signal to indicate when the pen is paired with the surface pro4 tablet. G

    There should be a vibration or audible signal to indicate when the function key is pressed. This is particularly important for us blind jaws screen reader users. I have muted my surface many times because I didn't realize the function key was not depressed.

  7. also greatly improve a magnifier as you have been doing with Narrator. It means that it will be comparable to other magnifiers on the market

    Magnifiers like Magic, ZoomText and Supernova have a lot of great features which Windows Magnifier in Win10 should contain. It is important because many people have problems with their sight but not enough to buy a very expensive product. On the other hand many partially sited people don't have enough money to buy these products.

  11. Allow "focus follows cursor" setting for the full screen magnifier

    The other option is that the magnification field moves continuously with the pointer. This is a great option because it allows me to zoom in on user interface controls, text fields, etc with ease, without having to move the pointer to a screen edge.

  14. Can you PLEASE make it possible to adjust ALL fonts EVERYWHERE in the system? As well as adjust scroll bars. TY

    I am a user with visual impairments, while as an academic I rely highly on text. The option that Windows picked now is to allow me to use my old High Contrast settings in terms of colours (through a previously saved theme from Windows 7), but not have the adjusted fonts (scroll bars, taskbar icons etc) all over the system. This does not make sense and is profoundly ableist. This has been a complain for YEARS in the community in terms of inaccessibility, and it is something that should be fairly easily solvable.

    It shouldnt be necessary to use the…

  16. Please make Text To Speak aviable in dutch.

    TTS in dutch for Unicersal Windows 10 and Windows 10 for phones will open much doors for people with a dissability in Belgium or The Netherlands. It will also help me a lot as developer of accessible apps in this region.

  19. Allow the surface pro cover to be used flat over the touch screen of the computer to look more like a tablet with a keyboard.

    I have a Surface Pro 4 and would love it if I could use the cover flat against the touch screen. I am blind and do not need the screen 95% of the time. This would do several things:
    1. It would reduce the size considerably and make the device much more compact
    2. It would allow me to use the surface on the move without needing to do anything more than press the unlock button and move the pro onto my lap from my hip. (I would have it in a carrying case that has the front open so…

  20. Make users more informed about File Explorer's Quick Access Toolbar

    The fact that almost any File Explorer Ribbon toolbar button, or group of buttons, be right-clicked and added to Quick Access Toolbar is poorly communicated.

    I discovered this by accident a month ago, and the Ribbon has been around since Win8.0. Previously I thought the Q-A-T was limited to only the few button choices which appear under it's drop-down-menu at the end of the toolbar.

    Tired of constantly changing to the different 'ribbon tabs' (Home, View) for different features, my Quick Access Toolbar currently looks like this:
