    • 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.

          • The online version doesn't line up like the PC version of Word. How about adding in rulers so we can obtain the same document lineup as we ?

            The online version doesn't line up like on the PC version of Word. How about adding in rulers or fixing it in whatever way that would make the same formatting possible?

            • For the love of all fucks - add space between pages!!!!!

              How the hell can you not have space between pages??? I understand that some of your programmers never went through regular school and therefore never had to write essays - but real people have to have that function. Why the fudge would I use your word online if I cant see where pages start and end? Are you living in a society where all information comes in one-page-formats???? Most useless shit Ive ever come across.....

              • How come you took away the translate function in Word ONLINE and when you have an attachment in WORD in your email. BRING IT BACK.

                The translating function on Word online and the attachment in an email just vanished last week. You need to bring it back. It was the most convenient way to translate full documents into another language. The Translate function in regular word is awful. It brings it to another website and you can't format or edit it. The version on ONLINE and email attachment you were able to download it right there into the other language and fix any formatting issues. We desperately need that to help our ELL population.

                  • Tag collaborator (@mentions) feature in Word Online

                    In Google docs, you can tag a collaborator via comments so he/she/they can see changes and address questions/comments. It's an extremely valuable featrue.

                        • Insert picture from OneDrive for Business

                          Currently (January 2018) OneDrive for Business is not supported as a source for inserting pictures into a document using Word Online.

                          This is a basic and common requirement for document creators working with Word Online.

                          Please implement and advise status. Thanks!

                              I recommend that Office Online (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, etc) have the same translation capabilities as the Desktop version (See https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Translate-text-in-a-different-language-287380E4-A56C-48A1-9977-F2DCA89CE93F)

                              • Make the end of page more defined.

                                The end-of-page while editing the document is not very defined so I need to change to reading view to have an idea of how the document would look like. This can be a little tedious.

                                    The ability to keep chat logs on Office 365 online application while collaborating would be a very beneficial feature to have. This would allow a user to reference any chat at a later time.

                                    • 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

                                      • show the header and the footer

                                        When you insert a header/footer, it disappears after you click on the other part of the text. It should be so that the header/footer stays on the page when you click away.

                                        • Retteprogram på nynorsk i Word

                                          Med så mange skoler som nå bruker 1:1 iPad sammen med O365 bør det også være retteprogram for nynorsk også i Word. Før det skjer blir ikke dette et fullgodt verktøy i norskfaget. Det handler ikke om hvor mange som har det som sitt førstespråk, men om hvor mange som har det som et skriftspråk de må forholde seg til. Det er alle elever i skolen, både ungdomsskoler og videregående.
