  1. Dictation tool in OneNote

    In my current use of OneNote, the dictation tool has the speech to text typing appearing at the bottom of the page in the notebook. The speech recognition typing needs to be occur next to the paragraph. We are reading a passage and need to take notes directly to the right side of the passage.

  4. choose where dictation goes

    It would be nice to be able to click a spot on the page and have the dictated text go there instead of a random spot on the bottom of a page.

  5. Increase top reading speed

    It would be awesome if the top reading speed could be faster. I would like to use it to increase my reading speed, but the top speed doesn't feel very close to my top speed.

  6. Use learning tool directly in the document

    The Learning tools modal is a little disorienting. It would be awesome to be able to use it directly in the document.

  8. Links inside of Immersive reader

    We are using OneNote class notebook to accommodate district assessments for our ESL and SPED population. Is there a way for the links placed on individual words to work when inside the immersive reader? See this video for an example-https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_plXpp-QgS1VW9wOFBYdmpkT1k/view

  9. immersive reader

    A child in my class finds immersive reader - specifically the way it splits words into syllables. The pupil only has access to an ipad at home. I have looked at office lens app as a way she could access learning tools at home by taking photos of pages from her reading book. But office lens doesn't split words into syllables..... Can this feature be added to office lens?

  10. immersive reader

    Love the immersive reader and how it splits words into syllables. It is really helping my pupils. I'd love to see office lens app with the facility to split words up into syllables or somehow my children can easily take a photo of their book, inserted directly into onenote (rather than inserting it as a file) and use the immersive reader on their ipads at home.

  11. Using Finger to Control Immersive Reader

    I have had many teachers request that students can use their finger to control the speed/rate at which the immersive reader works. Just like kids will drag their finger across text when they read, teachers would like to see this work using the Immersive Reader feature. Dragging a finger over the text would allow for more control and immersion into the text.

  12. Immersive Reader Issue

    I was told to put this issue here in OneNote UserVoice. I have also posted it in Word Online UV.

    I am having an issue with Immersive Reader in Word Online. I have placed a Word doc in OneDrive and opened it in Word Online. When the Immersive Reader opens the document (an exam), IR strips the outline letters (A, B, C, D). Therefore, when IR starts reading the exam, there is no vocalization of the outline structure. We are hoping this add-in will be useful for oral admin of exams for students with Accommodations. The problem is the format…

  14. Speech to Text tool to leave comments for students in Learning Tools

    Want to use Speech to Text tool to leave comments for students in Learning Tools.

    In fact something like video/screencapture comments that Eric Curts describes recently in Google EducationOnAir 2016 would be neat.

  15. Text to speach - languages

    Office Lens has Norwegian text to speach support. I hope this is coming to OneNote - Learning Tools soon.

  17. Add fast-forward/rewind functionality to Immersive Reader

    Please add fast-forward/rewind functionality to the Immersive Reader tool, so students can skip certain segments of text or listen to them again.

  20. Dictation Tool Tranlation

    It would be amazing if the translation tool could be used to record a spoken language (e.g., French) and allow you to translate the on screen text to another language (e.g., English) to check for accuracy.
