  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Deaf students and teachers

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  10. spellcheck

    Teams (macOS) 1.1.00.11551: The spell check language defaults to English (Simplified), with no option to set the preference to use another language, e.g. English (Traditional). The distressing result is that correctly-spelled words are underlined red.

  11. Expose the text boxes to system and third party Spell Checks

    On MacOS, there is no way of exposing the content of text boxes in channels and chats to a language checker. I use Antidote which works great for English and French; I know there are others out there who would love to be able to spell-check their messages with professional third-party software.

    For now, right-clicking on text only shows 3 options: cut, copy and paste. Why can’t I see all the other ones (Look up, Spelling and Grammar, Service, etc.)?

  14. 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.

  15. Can I suggest special characters / keyboard for Spanish in the posts/messages?

    A floating additional keyboard would be awesome when you type.

  17. censor Hate language

    As a Teacher and owner of the team I'd like to be able to set some language conventions to be applied to the Conversations tab.

    I'd like to be able to block all common swear words. Also the ability to add additonal custom words might be useful.

    What would be amazing if MS could use some of it's AI powers to scan a message and flag comments it think might be abusive and hide them until the owner has approved them.

    Currently Teams has the ability to mute people etc which is a useful tool. But it would be nice…

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
