  1. Custom labels in immersive reader

    Is it possible to give teachers the ability to create custom labels so they could input their own terminology lists into immersive reader. This would allow students to better check their work and edit it.

  2. set default text color to white (or others) in Win10

    Can I set text color to white by default? Because I set page to black. What frustrating me is when I add a text box, the text color will be "black" automatically. And I found no solution to set default text color.

  5. Immersive Reader should allow the use stylus while reading text

    While the Immersive Reader reads, there should be an option to use a stylus to underline or highlight words.

  8. Add Adverbs to Parts of Speech Highlighting

    I'd love to see you add word highlighting for adverbs. We've been using Immersive Reader in a high school writing class to check student writing. However, one skill we need to refine is the over-use of adverbs in argumentative writing.

  9. Add Pronouns to Parts of Speech Highlighting

    One of the skills I have a hard time helping students with is strengthening their writing by using nouns in the place of pronouns. I would love to see Parts of Speech highlighting expanded in Immersive Reader to include Pronouns like:
    he
    she
    it
    they
    them
    That way, I can start using Immersive Reader as a writing revision tool.

  10. learning tools picture dictionary

    Will all the features available in Learning Tools be streamlined? For instance, Picture Dictionary is available in OneNote Class Notebook online, but not OneNote 2016. It's very confusing to teachers and students when certain features of this helpful tool are available for specific products - and not the same across Word, Word online, OneNote (desktop), OneNote online, etc.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.…

  20. 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!
