    Hi Cory,

    This is an interesting suggestion in that it does make sense to alert the recipient of the fact that a disabled person is emailing them and needs some compensation to see a replied email. The tricky thing is that not all users use Microsoft products for email correspondence. Thus iin order to make this universal, there may have to be something implemented into the email protocols such as IMAP, SMTP or POP protocols.

    However, this will be forwarded to the appropriate project manager to get additional feedback on this suggestion.

    Thank you for reaching out to us; and if you have any further issues or suggestions related to accessibility, please let us know.

    Sincerely,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk Team.

    Hi Karl,

    First our apologies about the miscommunication on this issue.

    In order to help you further with this concern, are you using any utilities that clean various caches such as CCleaner, or another utility that clears window sizing or position caches? If so, can you change the settings so that is not cleared. If you are not, please let us know as well, so we can further investigate this issue and pass it on to the appropriate team for future resolution?

    Thank you,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk Team.

    If this issue is indeed hindering your disability then we can pass it on. No harm if it’s not, issues will be triaged on number of votes/impact anyway and it lets the customer know we care and are listening.

    The thing is that this is a forum for disabled customers to post accessibility issues to. Unfortunately, when reviewing your post, this doesn't fall under the guidelines of disability assistance. That's why we forwarded the support page.

    If in the future you have a disability / accessibility related issue, question, or suggestion, we will be more than happy to help out.

    Thank you.

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk team.

    Hello Neil,

    Thank you very much for your suggestion. as you may know, we are working diligently to offer more accessibility functionality to our products.

    What version of Word are you using? Is it Office 365, or 2016, or another version? Please let us know so we can forward your suggestions to the appropriate product team, so we may expedite your issue.

    Thank you,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk team.

    Hi Neil,

    That is indeed an interesting idea. I'll go ahead and send this on to one of our project managers who is in charge of Office 2016 and Office 365. In adddition, we'll keep you upt to date on this forum as to any implimentation plans.

    Thanks again,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk Team.

    Hi Loma,

    Thank you very much for that information. At this point we would highly recomend upgrading to Office 365 or Office 206 as Office 2007 is nolonger in the support cycle by Microsoft. With Office 365 and Office 2016, we've been developing these versions with greater ease of access in mind. Thus it would likely solve the issues you're having with Office 2007.

    If we can be of further assistance, please reach out to us.

    Thank you,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer desk team.

    Hello Mallory,

    This is a very good idea, and thank you so much for breaking down the details of what you’re looking for in reference to this issue. That helps us a great deal in investigating how we can make that feature more accessible.

    We’ll do some more research to see how these solutions can be implemented and will get back to you with follow-up details as they become available.

    Again, thank you for reaching out to us; and if in the future we can be of further assistance, please let us know.

    Sincerely,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk team.

    Hi Mallory,

    Thank you for informing us of this new development. Yes, we definately encourage users to post their findings and solutions on the forum as that would help other users with the same or simular problems. Also this adds data to how we can improve future releases of our products as well.

    Thank you again for reaching out to us with your issue and letting us know what solution or solutions you found.

    Sincerely,

    Hi Ralph,

    I just got some feedback from our team and this is the update thus far:

    1.the link to add subnets is not properly labeled. Bug currently under review and we'll have updates shortly regarding a fix
    2. It is no longer possible to select the location. Is this for dropdowns for a location picker?
    3. When pressing E, instead of looking for the last edit field Jaws telling me I'm not in a table. We're currently investigating this and will give updates as to further developpments.
    4. Drop downs are not accessible. The lookup window isn't accessible. Dropdowns just became accessible and are on their way to making it to production.
    5. Adding a site to site connection on the virtual network gateway. Unable to select a local network gateway. The blade appears blank. The testing team has been notified of this and we'll update when more information becomes available.
    6. Adding a site to site connection on the virtual network gateway. Unable to select a local network gateway. The blade appears blank. Same response as 5.

    Let me know if this helps.

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk Team.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Hello,

    Which version of Visual Studio are you referring to?

    VS2017 is accessible (we test it)
    VS2015 had some issues on the tree control. Can give more information?

    Thanks.

    Hello Matt,

    Thank you for contacting us about your suggestion. In a way that makes sense to have a screen curtain for your Android device like the one that is found in Apple products.

    I’ve submitted your feature request to one of our Product Managers for further review. we’ll post updates here as soon as further details become available.

    In the meantime, one thing you can do is dim your screen all the way down as that would make it harder for others to read – especially at an angle.

    Again, thank you for contacting us about this, and we will endeavor to resolve all issues that are raised.

    Sincerely,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk.

    Hello Chris,

    Thank you for reaching out to us at the Disability ANswer Desk on the User Voice Forum. This is an interesting feature request and makes a lot of sense considering that verbosity settings are found on comparable products. I will contact the product manager for Narrator and follow up with him to see if this is something that is planned for a future release. Once I have an answer back, I’ll follow up with an update with regards to your suggestion.

    Thank you again for contacting us about this.

    Sincerely,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk team.

    Hi Jason,

    Thank you for contacting us at the Disability Answer Desk. In order to serve you better, can you tell us what version of Outlook you’re using such as Mac or Windows 32 or 64-bit, and what version of Jaws or other screen reader that you are using? That will allow us to get this issue to the appropriate product manager to get this resolved for you.

    Again, thank you for contacting us; and we will do our best to resolve this for you.

    Sincerely,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk team.

    I rerproduced this for you and found a solution for you. When we did this we got the following result: I am not sure what your are specifically looking for here; this is what I get when I use the arrow to go left and right between days in my calendar:

    Day View, 3 total events, 8:00pm to 8:30pm Wednesday, January 4, 2017
    Day View, 3 total events, 8:00pm to 8:30pm Thursday, January 5, 2017
    Day View, 2 total events, 8:00pm to 8:30pm Friday, January 6, 2017
    Day View, 0 total events, 8:00pm to 8:30pm Saturday, January 7, 2017

    The date and the day of week are there.

    Now, the calendar does need to be in a specific view I believe to get this data; my calendar view is “Calendar view” and specifically day of week.

    Let me know if this works for you.

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk team.

    Hi Andries,

    We would be more than happy to help you out with your accessibility issue. So that we may more effectively assist you, can you tell me the version of outlook that you’re using, and on what platform you’re using it on such as Windows 10 or Android for example?

    Thank you,

    The Microsoft Disability answer Desk team.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting us about the issue you’re having. Can you tell us is if you’ve been able to change the focus to the message body without the BrailleNote Touch?

    Thank you for contacting us. We look forward to solving your issues and answering your questions.

    Hi Sam,

    I have some questions for you as a follow-up to our conversation of the issue you have submitted. Is this is similar to a user who has an Android tablet with a keyboard, or if the navigation experience it totally different.

    Assuming this is similar to navigating with a keyboard, it may not be the right design for most users. For example, say you’re using TalkBack on an Android device, and you select items in the message list – you’re likely expecting to hear the preview of that item read to you, while being able to still arrow down to the next item in the list. Taking focus out of the list could make it harder to go through multiple emails.

    I’m not sure if there’s already a keyboard shortcut that would apply here for getting from the message list to the reading pane, which would alleviate this user’s frustration.

    We'll investigate this more in the coming new year and keep you up to date as far as what's developing.

    Again, thank you for contacting us.

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk Team.

    Hi George,

    Thank you for that additional piece of information which helped greatly. I did some research for you and Greek is not yet supported as per the URL listed below. However, I am escalating this suggestion to our product managers, as we're looking to add more languages to accommodate a greater user base.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/22805/windows-10-narrator-supported-languages

    We'll keep you up to date on our progress in implementing this for you. In the meantime, if you have any other suggestions or concerns regarding accessibility, please feel free to contact us.

    Sincerely,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk.

    Hi George.

    Thanks for your response to the forum. In response to that, what speech recognition software are you wanting to use with Cortana? Is this Dragon Naturally Speaking or another software package? If so, which is it?

    Thanks,

    Hello Hari Dhoundiyal ,

    Thank you for contacting the Disability Answer Desk about your concern with Narrator. Can you give us some more detail as to when it does not alternate in between screen and editing mode? This would help us improve the software to make it user friendly.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Sincerely,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk.

    Hi Hari,

    Thank you for getting back to us on this. I'll forward your issue on to the product owners as this looks to be very valid. We'll keep you up to date on this forum in regards to our progress.

    Thank you,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk.

    The “scan” mode does not automatically switch to the appropriate mode when navigating through pages of web-sites. When Narrator’s cursor focus lands on a text input/editable field, the “scan” mode does not switch off. You could press “CapLock+SpaceBar”, but it’s neither convenience nor efficient. Narrator should offer the same ability as other advanced screen readers--or else, it would not be meaningful and/or productive to use.
    I strongly recommend that the Narrator should apply methods of interacting with web pages in the manner so applied by System Access screen reader (see: www.serotek.com). System Access is the only screen reader that utilizes a synchronous and automatic approach – alleviating the issue of such as “scan” mode. The only way your team will be able to make a sense of it is to run the System Access for a test-drive.

    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.
