  1. dictate accent

    In the Dictate Set Up include a test to tell English speakers without an (American, Canadian, British, Indian or Australian) accent which English accent they should use when using dictate as we're having trouble choosing which one to use for a Kiwi (Nz) accent. :)

  5. Pin side panel

    I'm a PhD student. I use the 'section group' section in OneNote 2016 for each chapter, and the 'section' tab for each part of the chapter i.e. introduction, argument 1 etc. Pages are paragraph 1/2 etc with research notes intended underneath. I usually have OneNote resized to the left-hand side of the page and a word document on the right. I just upgraded to windows ten and realised that when I try to re-size the new OneNote, the side panel disappears, and I can only see 1 page at a time. There's no way to pin the side-panel on the…

  6. 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.

  8. Make immersive reader read .pdf files

    It would be great if Immersive Reader can read pdf files uploaded in OneNote. This would give more access to material available in a classroom.

    At present, It does not recognize the text in a pdf file.

  9. Immersive reader is terrific. Even better if you were able to edit the text within Immersive.

    To help students review their work, it would be so helpful if the text could be edited in the immersive reader window.

  10. dictate

    Using dictate to make bullet notes is impossible. The microphone stops recording after a few seconds of no audio. Maybe make a setting where it can dictate indefinitely, and be modified where the text appears where the cursor is.
    Using dictate to speak notes into one note would speed up note taking immensely since I can use the book to speak the main ideas, and then go back and using enter, tab, and shift+tab to make bullets and numbered notes. If dictate could simply read my words while I can make these adjustments I could note take multiple chapters at…

  11. Immersive reader in Forms

    Immersive reader would be a wonderful tool in Forms! It’s a need for students that have 504 plans requiring oral administration on tests.

  13. 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.

  16. Immerse reader

    It would be great if the immerse reader would be more user-friendly. If It could read the part of the document that you want it to ( instead of reading the entire document from the beginning every time ). And it would be great if the voices were more realistic.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
