      Sending another email since this was merged with a larger ticket. This way everyone gets the update that we’re working quickly to rectify this!

      Thanks so much for everyone who commented to let me know it wasn’t done. That was really valuable. I’ve talked to the engineering lead on this item and I’ll let you know when its done.

    • Screen Space

      Don't restrict the width of the screen space for channel conversations, if my monitor is wide enough, adjust the display to fill up all the available space.

      • Captioning on Audio and/or Video

        As being employer to several staff who is Deaf and reply on using subtitle when watching video. I was surprised to see no subtitle/closed captioned feature when I play a video called Introduction to Microsoft Team Product Tour (2.03 minutes video) as enclosed in this attachment.
        Thank you.
        Regards
        Peter

          Hi Peter — I’m SO sorry! Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We are 110% committed to accessibility and we will make sure that captioning gets added to the videos.

          And Stephanie, thank you for highlighting why captioning is important otherwise. I’ll route that to the right dev team.

          Sincerely,

        • Visually differentiate between the chats

          There should be clear visual distinctions between the different chats in the same channel. it's hard to find separate. Having borders will definitely help. Having a chat title will be helpful as well and will help in easily replying to a thread.

          • Preload tabs' content

            Preload the content of tabs so that they work in a similar way as regular browser tabs. In this way users would be able to switch from one tab to the other and continue the navigation where they left it without further delays due to tab load time.

              • A JAWS user cannot schedule a meeting

                When one attempts to enter text into the start date a drop down calendar appears. This calendar is only partially accessible to a JAWS user - the day of the week is not announced. A JAWS user will not be able to complete scheduling a meeting.

                  • Top level nav that allows you to jump between existing Microsoft Apps

                    This would be the square box in the top left corner of Office 365. This would allow users to bounce in between different applications more easily .

                    • Navigation within a conversation using JAWS

                      JAWS announces “use the left and right arrows to navigate” when reading a conversation. However, the focus just moves back and forth between the two “Save” and “Like” buttons. When the Tab key is pressed the focus jumps to an invisible item and nothing is announced. Another Tab key press and the focus returns to the “Save” button. The only method of getting out of this trap is to use the letter “R” for JAWS region keystroke which some users will not be familiar with. It should be possible using the up and down arrows alone to navigate through all…

                      • CAPTCHA is not accessible to a JAWS user

                        The CAPTCHA mechanism for recovering your account is not accessible to a JAWS user. The audio button does not receive keyboard focus. Partially sighted users will have difficult reading the characters.

                        • Keyboard shortcuts

                          Hi, Can't you offer keyboard shortcuts to get to different tabs (activity, chat, teams, meetings, files)? This will make our life much easier.

                          Thanks.

                                  • Todos los usuarios del team

                                    Me parece buena idea que al momento de estar en la opción de chat, en este aparezca todos.los contactos integrados o que hacen parte de la organización.
                                    Es muy difícil para hablar con un contacto tener que buscarlo.

                                    • Colour Blind Compatibility

                                      Hello,

                                      For indicating if a person is in a meeting or not icons can be used for colour blind. Some people cannot discriminate red and green colours, which sometimes causes problems.

                                      Cheers

                                      • Göra om kanaler till team

                                        Det vore praktiskt att enkelt kunna göra om en kanal i ett Team till ett eget separat Team.

                                        • Unlabelled list boxes in conversation pane (JAWS)

                                          Within a conversation the JAWS form field list displays two unlabelled list boxes. These lists need to have a proper label to allow blind users understand the context. There is also an unlabelled Tree view.
