    • 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.

      • Change 'Accept Call' button color to green to match other familiar UI elements

        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…

        • Better Support to copy

          When the ellipses pop up there should be an option to select all and copy to clipboard. Currently when I try to copy the content of a one line text I got from someone else, the ellipses will pop up and actually block me from being able to select and copy what I need.

          • speech to text for chat interaction

            User on the Tech Community has reported they find the app difficult because they suffer from carpal tunnel and so would like to do chats and start a call by speech. I believe that Teams should be made accessible to all as far as possible

              The colors of the overlay icons for the meeting tools can be difficult to see when certain content is shared. Provide an option in Teams to customize the color and contrast of the overlay tools.

              • Fully integrated High-Contrast Accessibility when opening files in Teams

                You can make Microsoft Teams better by providing High-Contrast Accessibility support when opening documents within Teams.

                Currently, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote files do not open in High Contrast. within Teams.

                Selecting the Teams High-Contrast theme has no impact on this action.
                Additionally, Windows 10 High-Contrast settings can't be applied, as the action of opening documents is occurring within the Teams "shell".

                Thanks,

                  The system font size is NOT enough (relative sizing). If I increase font size in OS it messes up other apps I need the ability to chane the size just in Teams

                    • Keyboard enter key not sending

                      On the IPad Pro when pressing the enter key on the external keyboard it makes a new line and doesn’t send the message. This is so annoying as I use Teams a lot and I have to touch the screen on every message to send instead of just pressing enter on the keyboard.
                      I can’t see any settings to change this and all the other messaging apps work fine with the enter key.

                        • 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!
                            -Warren

                              • Make the chat input field active when switching back to Teams

                                When I switch to another program and back to Teams, I automatically start typing, but Teams has given active focus to window controls, meaning my typing is ignored until I hit the spacebar, at which point Teams minimizes itself. NOT the behavior I want to see!

                                Make it so Teams automatically chooses the chat input window for focus when I switch to it so that I can simply click the taskbar icon or alt-tab to it and start typing. Right now it requires far too many clicks which is disruptive and hurts my productivity.

                                      There is no visual indication that you have any messages in "Teams", like Chats and Activities there is nothing there, you would have to click on the teams and then scroll through the possibly hundreds of "team" chats you are in. It is absolutely frustrating to have to continuously check that tab to find you missed a bunch of things.

                                          Aplicación lenta. Diferenciar tipos de archivos. No hay diferencia entre responder y escribir un nuevo mensaje. El árbol de grupos mal. Enlaces a otras plataformas
