  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  6. 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.

  7. Dictar en un idioma y automáticamente traducir a otro

    La herramienta de dictar está genial. Pero me gustaría que a la vez que se dicta se tradujese el texto a otro idioma.

    Ejemplo. Dicto en inglés y aparece en español.
    (Podría incluso salir en el idioma en que se dicta y en al que se está traduciendo)

  13. Immersive Reader Extension for Edge

    It would be great if you made Immersive Reader as an Edge extension. Such as the one shown in this link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/use-immersive-reader-on-w/fmidkjgknpkbmninbmklhcgaalfalbdh

  14. Show word stress.

    It is good to see that, we can see the word split into syllables. Could you also please show, which part of the word is stressed? Such as 'Pas'.sen.ger

  15. (OneNote feedback) add search by date created, not modified.

    Adding a date created search option is very useful, and you can track things down much easier.

  16. Allow the translation feature to be accessed in Microsoft Word, not just in OneNote

    You can use the translation feature in Immersive Reader in OneNote, but this is not available in Word. It would be very helpful to have this feature in Microsoft Word also! Thank you.

  17. It'd be great if we could add words to the reader's dictionary. Since my notes are short hand it'd be great if they knew w/ means with, etc.

    It'd be great if we could add words to the reader's dictionary. Since my notes are shorthand it'd be great if they knew what my notes mean. I prefer reading my notes out loud when I'm studying for a test because it helps me soak in information better. Silent reading I reserve for when I'm reading from a textbook and taking notes. But when I'm reviewing my notes to make connections and see what I need to work on, I prefer reading out loud, however, because my notes are shorthand the reader doesn't read smth as something, envt as environment,…

  18. Immerse Reader, better speed control

    Please give the Immerse Reader a better speed control. 0,75 is for the German Male voice to slow and 1 to fast. 0.85 should be perfect, but it would be nice if we could just input the number we want.
