  2. Dictation: Allow an option for speech-to-text

    Instead of wasting time typing, allow people to talk into the mic and their words turn into text.

  3. Add Track Changes to Word Online

    This would be one of the most common ways you'd want to collaborate on a document. It is the equivalent of Google doc's "suggesting" mode and without it our organisation would find it extremely difficult to take the plunge and jump ships.

  4. Please actually make page breaks so we can see where it finishes and ends.

    Please the option to have spaces between pages like in the offline version of Word. This would finally make the online version of word a usable alternative to the downloaded version.

  6. Add videos, GIFS or maybe interactive videos

    Add videos, GIFS or maybe interactive videos so that when we do presentations for our class we could make it more interesting and more hands-on for everyone, because most of our work is on word and if we could also use it for fun activities then Word could also become a good activity app

  8. Video chat

    i would enjoy having video chat so you can video chat your friends for projects and have it on one document instead of sharing and you both working and not being able to understand whats the other persons doing without calling or texting your friends and disrupting them to ask a question

  12. Fonts: Word Online should offer more fonts

    Word Online has many of the features Microsoft Word itself offers, but Word Online could at least add more fonts to the online version. Other than that, this seems like a complete replica of Word itself(other than a few bugs and no synonym suggestions)!- Nugget

  13. Fonts: Enable the ability to upload custom fonts

    I would like to see word online to be available with custom fonts added or made on the computer used. For example, fonts found on DaFonts.com should be able to be used if they are downloaded on the corresponding computer. If a shared document is given a font that other users do not have, they can be shown a default font in its place, such as times new roman or Arial. Custom fonts can be lead to more customization in documents.

  17. Tabs! Tabs! Tabs!

    PLEASE! I do not understand what is so hard about adding tabs to Word Online. There is no way to say that Word online is better than Google Docs when it is missing the most basic of functions
