  1. 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…

  2. 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. 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"

  5. 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.

  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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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. 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.

  20. 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.
