  1. Dictation voice and speed

    We just started using dictation for our 9 year old daughter and she has to read slower. If you change the speed of the dictation, then the voice just drags. Please add functionality so that when you slow the reading speed down, the voice does not drag.

  3. Default Japanese font in the immersive reader

    Default Japanese font in the immersive reader is MS gothic. This font is very OLD Japanese font. Customer will image Windows 95.
    We should use UD Digital Kyokasho Font for ICT education that added in RS3 or Yu Gothic that is default font in Windows 10.

  4. Choose where dictation starts

    Currently enjoying the dictation feature in OneNote 2016 and am disappointed that it is not yet available in Win10 OneNote. My main concern, however, is that the dictation tool is not very useful unless I can choose where the dictation starts by having dictation start at my cursor. Please add this ASAP so I don't have to switch to using Google Docs or purchase Dragon.

  5. Immersive reader

    It would be great if the immersive reader, when reading out loud, would stay on the same page and not open up a new window so that it is possible to see the context in which the text is taken. Ideally the tool would mark the words word by word as it reads aloud.

  6. Save Preferred Fonts

    The ability to save 3 or 4 fonts (size, style, color) would be really helpful. It would be awesome to be able to select these from Right click menu too.

  8. Speech to text for existing recordings

    Speech to Text for already sound recordings already made.
    I know that there is a functionality to search within the sound recordings, maybe you can also allow us to convert the whole recording to text.

  9. Add a phonetic feature

    When young children first learn how to read they learn individual sounds and how to blend them together into a word. For example, the word might is segmented into c-ar-t. Individual grapheme sounds such as c & t are written with a dot underneath and digraphs such as 'ar' are underlined to show children that those 2 letters work together to create one sound. These are called sound buttons.

    I think it would be fantastic if there was a feature where you could apply sound buttons to words so that students can attempt to read a word before hearing it.…

  10. Immersive Writer

    We would love to develop an Immersive Writer Tool.

    This would be able to look at text students have written and highlight all the sentences that are complete in one color. Maybe fragments could be in another color. If words are not capitalized and should be, just a certain color for the letter.

    Students would be able to see what sentences they have written successfully and get feedback on what they could revise.

    Thanks!

  13. Learning Tools for Windows 10 App

    The Windows 10 App is limited in its usefulness for students without the Learning Tools add-in. For younger students, the Windows 10 App is visually great - I like being able to add images to pages which then appear in the page summary. I would like to use the Windows 10 App for UK KS3 and 4 students when we embrace Windows 10 S devices in the new academic year - without Learning Tools, however, students will be working in different versions of OneNote which is a pain.

  14. Learning tools - read selected text

    Allow the user to select the text that they want read out rather than it reading the whole page. Also can the read button be available on a right click also? That way the user and type text, highlight, and have it read back without needing to navigate around the screen

  15. Change Playback Speed of Recordings

    I use OneNote to take notes for medical school and record the lectures simultaneously. It would be awesome to have an option to change the playback speed of audio recordings that are clipped to the page, so I can listen to my lectures at 1.5x or 2.0x speed!

  16. reading words while showing pictures

    Hi I like how OneNote can read the document out loud to me but I need the pictures and diagrams to really understand what is being said.
    It would be great if there was an option to have the text read out loud in a small window while sill being able to move through the document looking at pictures.

  20. Dictar en un idioma y automáticamente traducir a otro

    La herramienta de dictar está genial. Pero me gustaría que a la vez que se dicta se tradujese el texto a otro idioma.

    Ejemplo. Dicto en inglés y aparece en español.
    (Podría incluso salir en el idioma en que se dicta y en al que se está traduciendo)
