  1. A full dictionary as a part of immersive reader.

  2. Closed Captions for Everyone

    Right now I can't get to the closed caption feature, but I need it to focus in my online classes. The feature is only available on certain computers/browsers. I have many classmates that also can't focus without it or aren't able to hear what's happening without it. It would be very helpful to neurodivergent/hard of hearing people to be able to access this feature no matter what.

  3. Lock captions on.

    I would like the option to make captions on the default rather than having to enable it each meeting.

  4. Add Hindi as a translate language

    Hindi, the national language of India is not a language option in Teams, although Indian English is. In general, Microsoft could do better with the list of language options, which are very limited at the moment. Google includes Hindi, and also Marathi, another major Indian language.

  8. Full name in captions

    There are people with the same names in the class
    e.g Aayush A and Aayush A
    Please add a full name in captions so that we can understand who is speaking.

  9. Sort using the tilde or other accent mark

    Currently, Teams does not recognize the tilde ~ placed above letters in languages like French/Spanish. It would be great if when sorting, Teams recognized the accent mark so names like Nuñez are sorted correctly instead of ignoring the ~ above the second n or a name with an accent mark like à or á is being ignored as well.

    Teams should recognize the local language in which it is sorting

  14. Accuracy in translation & captions

    Hi
    I'm Joe, a student in India who is using this app for studies. First of all, lemme tell you something. When I was in a meeting, I just turned on live captions. But the weird thing is that, the captions couldn't identify the language and translate to display them. Many times, the captions had crashed. Even if we spoke English clearly, it turned the right words into some other words (like, for example, the thing turned the word 'work' to 'word'. That's stupidity!). Please develop this captions and also add a feature like when someone says something in another…

  19. To add English (United Kingdom) as a language feature for keyboard language. Because not everybody spells the way Americans do

    Just to change the options for language settings to better suit people living in other countries.

  20. Usage of Term "Conversation" in French is confusing.

    In french the section Chat is translated as "Conversation" and in the section Teams, the Tab Conversations is translated as "Conversations".
    From a user perspective this is a little confusing and it should be nice to keep Chat untranslated as it's commonly used in French too.
