Basic tasks using a screen reader with the Feedback Hub

This article is for people with visual impairments who use a screen reader program with the Office products and is part of the Office Accessibility content set. For more general help, see Office Support home.

Use a screen reader to perform basic tasks with the Windows Feedback Hub. We have tested it with Narrator, but it might work with other screen readers as long as they follow common accessibility standards and techniques. You'll learn to search for feedback, upvote and comment on feedback, and share feedback with others.

Upvote and comment on feedback

Upvoting and commenting on feedback left by others is an excellent way to increase its visibility and to add your own comments and insights without submitting a separate feedback item.

Note: Only feedback with the Suggestion type can be upvoted.

  1. Open the feedback item you want to upvote and/or comment on.

  2. To upvote feedback, press the Tab key until you hear "Upvote," and press Enter.

  3. To comment on feedback, press the Tab key until you hear "Write a comment," and type your comment.

  4. Press the Tab key until you hear "Post comment," and press Enter.

Share feedback

  1. Open the feedback item you want to share.

  2. Press the Tab key until you hear "Launch Share popup," and press Enter. The Share popup opens.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • To copy a link to the feedback item to your clipboard, press the Tab key until you hear "Copy short link," and press Enter. The URL of the feedback item is copied to your clipboard and you can paste it into, for example, an email message.

    • To share a link to the feedback directly to another app, press the Tab key until you hear "Share," and press Enter. Then press the Tab key again until you hear "Share to apps," and select the app you want to share the link to with the Left and Right arrow keys. Press Enter to share the link in the app.
