  3. RE: OneNote dictation - type where cursor is/commands

    The dictation needs to appear where I move the cursor. If I move it back, I'd like the dictation to appear at that point and not at the end.

    I'd also like it if dictation could understand commands like Undo or the like.

  4. dictate learning tool period

    When using the Dictate tool in Learning Tools OneNote add-in, the user needs to be able to 'dictate' when to enter a full stop (period) as currently the tool is automatically entering these whenever the user has a slight pause when speaking (resulting in too many full stops/periods appearing while trying to dictate a sentence). Can you amend this function to either need a longer pause length before auto entering a full stop/period OR for voice activated entry as occurs in speech to text apps like ireadwrite. Love the dictate and immersive reader tools!

  5. Immersive Reader tools in French

    I teach in a French First Language School. Thank you for the Immersive reader in French. Will you be offering the comprehension, syllable, noun,verb, adjective function in French soon? Right now it says only available in English. It would be so helpful for my students with Learning Challenges. (I teach grade 5/6). Thank you very much

  7. Option to correct errors made by "Machine generated text"

    Give (teachers) the option to correct Machine generated text.
    Sometimes the "machine" just doesn't generate the correct text. This can cause confusion and disturbance among students. Would it be possible to add an option to manually correct the "machine errors"?

  8. text color

    Allow us to change the font color, not just the background. Yellow is the color we perceive the fastest and if I have a black background and yellow text font I believe I'll be able to recognize words with ease as I am dyslexic.

  11. 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!

    Liesl

  13. Learning Tools for Windows 10 App

    The Windows 10 App is limited in its usefulness for students without the Learning Tools add-in. For younger students, the Windows 10 App is visually great - I like being able to add images to pages which then appear in the page summary. I would like to use the Windows 10 App for UK KS3 and 4 students when we embrace Windows 10 S devices in the new academic year - without Learning Tools, however, students will be working in different versions of OneNote which is a pain.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. reading words while showing pictures

    Hi I like how OneNote can read the document out loud to me but I need the pictures and diagrams to really understand what is being said.
    It would be great if there was an option to have the text read out loud in a small window while sill being able to move through the document looking at pictures.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
