      The zoom feature has released to the public ring. Using CRTL + or CTRL – zoom in and out on a Windows PC.

      I need to correct the information I provided last month about MAC. It appears the MAC version is still in testing and hasn’t yet gone out to the public. It is “In Testing” but will be coming to the public soon!

      The item tracking this specific update can be found at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/16933183/activity

      There now is a UI element that tells you your current zoom level and a Setting within the UI to preset your zoom preference.

      Since the zoom feature could very well cover the vast majority of user needs, based on the majority of comments and feedback, I will flag this item as Partially Done.

      Thank you for all the feedback and support!

    • 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.

        • 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.

            Teams does have some shortcuts you may use.

            To see the shortcut list you can click on your user icon within Teams.
            From the drop down list go to Keyboard Shortcuts.
            A second window will open showing you the available shortcuts that Teams has to offer at this time.

            Keep posting feedback.

                You can create add a hyperlink to any text, which will allow you to avoid massive links being copied into the chat/channels.
                Expand the compose box by clicking the icon “A” with a pencil just below your compose line. Once in the expanded view you can create a link by clicking the icon that looks like a chain at the top of the compose box.

                You can also highlight your text and use this function to change your selected text into a hyperlink. Once the hyperlink dialog opens update the link location and modify your text if you so desire.

              • Option to change global font size in Teams & apply settings to incoming messages like you can in Lync

                Very important for visually impaired individuals. Lync has an option that allows you to specify the global font settings and then click a box that "applies settings to incoming messages."

                This means that someone like myself, who is visually impaired, can then set the global font to say 16. Then all messages I type will be at size 16 and more importantly, all the messages I get back from people are going to be size 16 as well.

                This option also allows people who Don't want to see messages in size 16 -don't have to. They can specify their own…

                • Screen Sharing - add an "actual size" button to show the presenter's desktop resolution

                  It is difficult for viewers with poor vision to see desktops that are shared. HDMeeting and other videoconferencing apps have a UI element to show the 'actual size' of the display resolution.

                  Users can use the zoom button to enhance the Teams call controls, but not the shared screen.

                  • High Contrast

                    For vision impaired uses that use custom High Contrast Theming, the Teams apps does not correctly map to the colors. For example, left list uses the Disabled vs Selected colors. Microsoft should be fully committed to one standard for Theming; especially for High Contrast Theme. It is critical for the vision impaired.

                      I apologize for being fairly ignorant on this topic. The color scheme setting can be found by clicking your portrait icon within Teams at the upper right. Under the General Settings you can select, Default color theme, Dark, or High Contrast. This follows the Windows OS high contrast theme and my understanding is also following the global standards.

                      If you are having issues could you let me know what exactly is happening or specifics you feel need to change? If you could tell me both and maybe even email me screen shots to TeamsML@microsoft.com I can work to see what I can do for you. Please list the subject in the email as “High Contrast”.

                      Thanks!

                        When will this be added to the compose message textbox in the Teams / Channels area of the app? It currently only functions in Chats and I'm sure a lot of people that voted for that (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16932934-up-arrow-to-edit-last-message) meant a vote for Channels / Teams, too or maybe even more importantly.

                        • Different Notification Colours

                          It would be nice if the "followed channel" notification was a different color than the "direct mention" indicator. since I can't tell the difference, i find myself heading over to teams just to see conversations that I'm probably not interested in, which ends up being bad context-switching for me

                            I would like to gather some more feedback about this topic. I understand the request is for different colored notifications but I wanted to see about your feedback on the different icons.

                            We currently have different icons depending on the activity you are being notified of.
                            Such as a direct mention in a channel with have the “@” symbol, letting you know you were @ mentioned.
                            A lightbulb icon lets you know about general activity within a channel you follow.
                            A chatbox icon appears when channel is mentioned that you are part of.

                            And so forth… do these icons help you understand the notifications or do you feel color differentiation is also required?

                            Let me know in the comments of this topic thread. Thanks!

                                When I receive an incoming call request, if I'm on autopilot sometimes my inclination is to click on the red 'decline call' button because that button has a different color than the other buttons--this makes it stand out as an option.

                                If you changed the color of the 'accept call' button to a medium green, this would make both 'accept' and 'decline' stand out from the rest of the interface and also help facilitate usability for those who are partially blind.

                                Doing this would align the most important call interaction buttons to the same color scheme that iOS/Android use and…

                                    • Allow Office Online tabs to respect the dark theme setting rather than have a bright white default background.

                                      Allow Office Online tabs (Excel, Word, OneNote, etc) to respect the dark / High Contrast theme setting rather than have a bright white default background.

                                      As a sight loss user, this causes a barrier for me in the desktop version of Teams, causing eye strain.

                                      • Enable scrolling through a channel with keyboard

                                        When I'm working from home, I frequently am using a touchpad and keyboard for my work, so clicking on a scroll button and dragging is really hard and inconvenient.

                                        Expected: When I click the pointer in a channel, a message should be selected, and the up and down arrows should move to the previous and next message, respectively.

                                        Currently: Here is video.
                                        0:01 I select the channel
                                        0:04 move my pointer into the channel and click hoping to see a message selected.
                                        0:07, 0:09 I move a little closer to a message, and click again and again. Still nothing.
                                        0:10…

                                        • Make the window border more distinctive from the application behind it

                                          The Teams window fades in colour to the bottom right which is where the corner resize handle is.
                                          The colour at this corner of the app is often the same colour as apps in the background which makes it hard to find/grab the resize handle.
