  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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  12. Page Breaks: Add clear page ends/breaks

    I need to know where the page ends so that I know where to start a new section so nothing gets separated in printing :) thanks

  17. Default to edit view

    It is very confusing to see a document open and not be able to edit it. Most text editors default to editing, so this one should also

    Thanks for the feedback!

    When you open documents that you own in OneDrive and OneDrive for Business, we now open in edit mode by default. Documents shared with you still open in Reading View. We are in the process of rolling out default-to-edit for SharePoint libraries, stay tuned! :)

  20. Please restore Track Changes online!

    I was doing a lot of work on my laptop, editing a very large legal document for which my client needs to see all changes. The new update means that I can't use Track Changes online, but only on a desktop that has Word. That means I have no incentive to continue using Word Online. I feel like this is an important piece of user experience feedback for you guys (not you personally, of course!)

    It's a pity because I was getting really into Word Online and had started telling friends/colleagues about it.
