    Embed Microsoft Translator into Microsoft Teams so that translator can be utilized during a class meeting. Students will then be able to collaborate/communicate in any language even if they don't speak the same one! And also being able to have closed captions available in other languages.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  8. Lock captions on.

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

  10. Add mini dictionary

    first, It will be a great feature if Microsoft Teams add mini dictionary in the options windows near the chat and mic symbols. Sometimes the lecture includes academic words so it will be easy to click in my dictionary and type the words and get the definition. Moreover, It will be good for international students. As an international student sometimes I find unfamiliar words in lecture and I can’t interrupt my professor to ask him about words which most student are know, so instead of waste my classmate time to get the meaning it will be easy to type it…

  12. 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.

  14. Allow us to be able to use ctrl+quote to easily add accent marks while using Microsoft online platforms.

    We should have an easier way to type accents while using online platforms such as Teams, Notebook, Word, and PowerPoint online. The desktop applications are compatible with the ctrl+quote feature to easily add accents to letters. The online platform should also have the same easy feature so that students do not waste class time searching the symbols menu every time they need to insert an accent.

  16. Error in Polish translation.

    ENGLISH: In the Polish language version, one of the emoticons is called "szturchnięcie palcem". This should be called a "stuknięcie palcem" because he is not poking with his finger.

    POLISH: W polskiej wersji językowej, jedna z emotikonów nazywa się "szturchnięcie palcem". Powinno to się nazywać "stuknięcie palcem", ponieważ on nie szturcha swoim palcem.

  18. 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.

  19. Hebrew Read Aloud in Immersive Reader

    We are a dual language school: English and Hebrew.
    The Read-Aloud feature in Immersive Reader is great, especially with Hebrew! However, we only seem to be able to get Immersive Read to read aloud Hebrew in OneNote. Can this feature be extended to Microsoft Word and all other Microsoft products?
