  1. 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)

  2. Use cortana to start dictation

    I can already launch OneNote with Cortana but it would be great if I could have a page open and then say "cortana start dictation in OneNote" and have it start taking down what I say. This would be useful if I am reading a textbook and want to take some notes without having to look away from the book I'm reading

  3. Option to turn off "automatic punctuation"

    When I pause to think, Dictate inserts a period or question mark.
    Dictate in Word and Outlook both let me insert my own punctuation by saying "period" or "question mark."
    The automatic insertion of punctuation (mostly in the wrong place) makes Dictate mostly useless in OneNote. I have to do it in Word or Outlook, then copy paste to OneNote (backwards from how I normally do things).

    While I'm at it when I say "open quote" it inserts a space after the " which is almost never right. E.g., " start of quoted item"

    I love dictation. it saves me…

  5. use high contrast, adjustable r

    For students with visual impairments:
    Allow students to alter/personalise ribbon / icon colours and sizes to provide improved visibility of controls(larger and higher contrast). For some students this would reduce dependence on screen magnifiers.
    Group other features on Learning tools such as "Copy text from picture" command and "Ink to Text"

  8. learning tools print

    Learning tools enables the document to be broken by syllable. Enabling of print functions at this point would be beneficial. Teachers could create dyslexic friendly tests.

  11. Immersive reader in app, but not in program

    I can only find the immersive Reader in the app. I can`t find it in the program. Is it there? If not, it really should.

  12. Manually Select Language - Text to voice

    Learning Tools automatically selects language, but almost always gets it wrong when reading a scanned doc or copied text that is not English. It does not recognize French, for example. A drop-down menu to manually select language preference for Text-to-Voice would help solve this problem.

  13. Trying me on dictation in training tools. You can not set Swedish,

    Trying me on dictation in training tools. You can not set Swedish, it writes English words (English is default).

    If I check language settings, it is Swedish that says. Finds no other place to change language.

    I'm surprised, the features in general are Swedish

  17. spanish in immersive reader

    I'd like Immersive Reader to be accessible in a World Language class for students who need oral accommodations. It says that it reads in Spanish, but the inflections are off.

    Are there any suggestions about how to use it successfully in Spanish?

  18. I believe that more colour options and Comic Sans font need to be built into Immersive Reader, which is fantastic.

    I believe that more colour options and Comic Sans font need to be built into Immersive Reader, which is fantastic BTW. Like Word 2016 I believe students need the option of masking their screen in the notebook itself. I work with many students with learning challenges including Dyslexia and Dyspraxia and this would assist them greatly.

    Font Selection in the immersive reader is only Calibri and Sitka Small. Please add UD Digital Kyokasho Font and Yu Gothic for Japanese.
