  1. Add Names to Live Captions

    Live Captions don't have any user association to them. So it is just one "run-on" captioning. Can the names of attendees be added to help track the conversation?

  2. It would be helpful to have recorded meetings transcribed for future use to make them accessible to users with disabilities.

    After a meeting is recorded, it would be helpful to have a transcription of the recording for users who have hearing issues. Teams meetings are often used for later training, and access is limited for those who might be hard of hearing.

  3. option to translate all messages

    Rather than having to select each message to translate, it would be convenient to be able to translate all messages at once.

  4. Hungarian translation is not complete

    The Hungarian translation of Teams for Education is not complete on the Windows platform (desktop application and from browser). The Assignment section is not translated at all. This is a critical part of the software and students have trouble to use this part. How can we get Hungarian translation?

  5. hearing impaired screen within a screen for interpreter

    We are a Community College and have moved all of our classes to online using Teams at this time during the covid 19 pandemic. It would be great to have a sign language interpreter screen within a video call.

  6. Add Microsoft translator live discussions for the Classroom in Teams

    Right now I can embed the website https://translator.microsoft.com/ as a tab in Teams. It would be nice to have the live lecture feature for the classroom as an add-in option.

  7. Deaf students and teachers

    My students are deaf and I am also deaf. I need to be able to have a visual and have my lesson page available. I would like to see a visual classroom where students and teachers see each other and the lesson in available

  8. Translator for ELL Students While Using Live Captions

    For students, allow them to change the live caption from English to their native language. Would be a game changer for ELL students and teachers.

  9. We have deaf students and teachers, so it would be very helpful if closed captioning was tied to users rather than all jumbled together

  10. Australian or English Dictionary/spell checker

    I am an Australian Teacher, and the Australian spelling is more closely connected to English than American. This being the case my students are finding the spell checker across all platforms of Teams very confusing, could we please have the option of an Australian dictionary and if not an English one.

  11. 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.

  12. Poor translations need to be improved

    The language in translated versions of Teams should be proofread by qualified humans. The button "schedule" that must be clicked to post tasks in the future has been autotranslated to "tidsplan" in Norwegian, which is a correct translation of the noun "schedule", but it makes no sense in a context which requires a verb. A human would spot this.

  14. Create a way to easily add accent marks

    Please create a clickable mini tool bar next to all text input boxes where students can add accent marks - with so many different devices and operating systems, accents are always an issue. Other websites, such as quizlet and quia already have this functionality. The accents available are determined when the teacher indicates the language of the activity

  19. Please add a filter for foul language... young students love to spit out expletives sadly.

    Please add a filter for foul language... young students love to spit out expletives sadly. As an elementary school teacher, I wish I did not have to police foul language but there it is. It takes precious time away from my instructional efforts when I have to watch things they say to each other. Thanks in advance.
