  1. Teach Cortana yourself

    If she is our "Personal" Voice Assistant, "Can we teach her what to do when we ask her somethings special?"

    e.g. I have one Excel file in my OneDrive that call 'Exercise Schedule', I use it everyday. But if I don't want to pin it in my Start Screen to access it quickly, Can I ask her to open it for me?

    I know it is hard to understand what exactly in mean if I only say "Open Exercise Schedule", then let me teach you what to do when I say this 'sentence'.

    But how to can I teach you?…

  4. Give Cortana an avatar instead of the blue circle. This way it would seem more personal, and cool.

    Giving Cortana an avatar of some kind would make it seem more personal, and just amazing. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, just take the code from the avatar found in the games app, dress it as Cortana, make it animated (emoticon like emotions), and bam you have an avatar. For the PC and Xbox it would be incredible if the Milo Project tech was used to create a Cortana avatar. That would be surreal, not to mention crush the competition.

  5. Make cortana recognize my voice.

    Cortana recognizes my voice.
    Ex: Me: Hi Cortana
    Cortana: (recognizes) Hi Paul
    This could also be used as a screen unlock. If I enable this function, and could make her recognize tbm other friends.
    as face recognition from other platforms.

  6. Let Cortana Answer an incoming call simply saying: Cortana answer/ reply with speech recognition

    Try to think while you're driving or while you're in a fast food, you can't take the phone, but someone is calling you so.. What's better than able Cortana to answer the incoming calls? It'll be something like: Cortana answer the call and enable the speaker. And then you can start to talk with your friend (maybe). And/or able Cortana to reply with a text message using the speech recognition, so you can write a message with your voice and in both of them, you'll be able to answer without take the phone and look on it instead of the…

  7. Cortana - request permission for voice interaction

    Cortana is great, and I love interacting with a smart digital assistant.

    I want Cortana to audibly tell me about things around me that could be important - however as it's social and professional death to have your phone start talking to you in public - my suggestion would be that if Cortana has something they want to tell you about - e.g. traffic on the way home, that as well as appearing on the live tile, Cortana should pop up a distinctive notification - e.g. a noise queue or specific vibration pattern.

    That notification is Cortana saying "I have…

  9. Conversation mode please.

    Ok, you may have done this already but one of the key dis-associative elements I've found in using digital assistants is the continual requirement to say a key phrase "Hey Cortana!", "Hey Google" or whatever. Can we have a voice activated "conversation mode" whereby Cortana assumes that every statement/question is directed at it until a further terminating voice command is issued or a phonecall is initiated/received? Example:

    User: "Hey Cortana, go to chat mode"
    Cortana: "Ok, talk to me"
    User: "what's the time?"
    Cortana: "its 1:58pm"
    User: "do I have any appointments this afternoon?"
    Cortana: "There's nothing in the calendar" …

  10. Cortana should talk instead of giving options

    Scenario-A ( current )

    1- text message arrives
    2- Cortana(giving options): You got a text from xx , READ IT or IGNORE-IT
    3- User: Rea-d-it / Ig-no-re. (it's tiring to speak these words)

    Scenario-A (alternate)
    2- Cortana(talking): You got a text from xx, want me to read it.
    3- User: Yes / Yes please / Yes dear / No / Not now / Do not disturb /
    Shut Up or something else.
    4- then Cortana can TALK on further options (if applicable)

  11. Make Cortana the main interface of an operating system on PC's

    Make an option in the operating system where Cortana is the main interface of an operating system on the PC. You should be able to turn it on and off via voice command and Cortana should be able to understand your commands better as well as have a conversation with you. Give Cortana a user customizable avatar (kind of like how we can customize windows with themes). Allow third parties to also provide customization options. The avatar option should also be able to be turned on or off.

  13. Cortana should talk back at the same pace the user speaks to her

    I discussed this idea on reddit and people seem to like it. Please vote and contribute your ideas and lets bring it to the developers of Cortana.

    "I guess you guys have seen the new AI, Hound by Sound Hound. To be honest, it is way more impressive than Cortana in terms of complexity of questions it can handle ( at least as seen in the video) .

    But what I noticed about Hound is that, it talks really really fast...something I don't like at all. But I don't care about Hound since Cortana is what matters to me, I…

  14. We train dog using sounds, noises and gestures: how do we train Cortana to recognise this shortcut language

    Allow for adding non-language sounds, noises, etc, and assign some meaning or context to that audio gesture, that would translate into wording or phrases. In training dogs and I make a "I hear you guys doing something and I want you to let me know it is not bad or you are OK"; how do I add that to Cortana?

  15. Cancel a text message

    When I'm dictating a text message and Cortana says "Send, add more or try again?", I would like to be able to say "Cancel" or "Forget it". Sometimes I can't get Cortana to understand a key word in the text and I just want to give up and cancel the process. Currently I get stuck in the "try again" loop, which is very distracting while I'm driving.

  19. Cortana icon should change from round to her human formfrom her head to waist, shar should be able to do gestures and talk with expressions

    Cortana in human form will be interesting instead of the circled icon Cortana color should change according to the start theme colors. Cortana should do gestures and talk with facial expressions and feelings and emotions. With that she will look more like a personal assistant.
