  2. Higher contrast font colors, more font size choices

    Have the font color selection include fonts with better contrast levels from the background. On the standard white background (don't know about others as my company has disabled themes), colors other than black are extremely hard to read.

    As other users have noted, please add more font size choices, particularly for Wiki page titles. They are barely distinguishable from subheadings.

  3. Improve Microsoft Teams accessibility

    Microsoft Teams is not as accessible for blind persons, as it is necessary for them to work with it independently. When using a screenreader, it is very difficult for a blind user to get to the material (s)he wishes to find. This is the result of a test in the downloaded app version, in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer: In all cases, it is very difficult to navigate well and e.g. get all documents (and screenreading softrware Virtual Jaws doesn’t improve the situation). It is important to explore how to improve this, as Microsoft Teams is getting more and more…

  7. Make the vertical scroll bar bigger and more visible

    The vertical scroll bar is very thin and not easy to see or click on. Make it more like a regular Windows slider that is permanently visible.

  8. 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.

  10. auto hide sidebar should hide after choosing channel/team

    When the side bar is on auto-hide (when window is sized to a smaller width), once a Team channel is clicked, the sidebar should auto-hide again.

  11. searching

    The ability to search any types of WIKI within teams. if there is just clear text, please provide a type of search for that within groups. I can search files and other items just fine, but not clear text within groups, or Wiki's. This makes it very hard to find material.

  13. Make it more clear when chatting in a group change vs. private chat

    Please make it more clear you are in a group chat. There have been several times a user will say something in group chat and think they are in a private chat. A different color background and/or color font and/or icon to indicate a group chat.

  15. Please add the functionality to "Paste Special"

    When working on Teams, and also in Office 365, you can't "Paste special". This is super annoying, and is stopping a lot my colleagues from using teams. Which defeats the purpose of us paying for it.

  16. Slash commands should be available in the same place we type messages.

    As a power user, I wish to be able to enter slash commands in the same control where I type messages, because the inability to do so goes against more than 30 years of precedent for chat applications. Having to enter them elsewhere is counter intuitive and frustrating.

    From an accessibility point of view it makes no sense to force the user to navigate to another control where they still need to type the slash.

    IRC has had slash commands for more than 30 years. Slack, Mattermost, Zoom... all have slash commands integrated in the text entry control too.

    Integrating…

  17. Easier Navigation

    If you click on a teams, you should land directly on the first channel.
    There should be a breadcrumb navigation for the channels in the teams, which can be optionally displayed between teams name and tabs.

  18. Export complete Chat conversations

    Right now if we want to save the conversation of a Chat we do so by individually selecting them one by one.

    It will be helpful if we can do that by right clicking a chat window and export/save is gets enabled.

  20. 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.

    Warren responded

    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!
    -Warren
