Accessibility Features ~ Microsoft

Linkhttps://sway.com/vAdiAMXOJEQGVbqX

Take a peep in the link above to find  a comprehensive list of Microsoft accessibility features for Windows 10 and Office 365. There are options for everyone, and features I wasn’t aware of.

 

To add via a few words from the "Sway" article introduction:

<-Snip> 

At Microsoft, our Mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. With more than 1 billion people in the world with disabilities, there is no limit to what people can achieve when technology reflects the diversity of all those who use it. <End snip-> (Continue reading in link above)

 I’m excited that I found the Read Aloud feature! I typically do not use the Edge browser, however I had to try this feature out. So, I opened BleepingComputer, clicked on the home page, security news and then the article about Twitter by Catalin Cimpanu, I’m listening to “Microsoft Zira” voice as I type! The text is highlighted in yellow as well as listening to the voice option. Give it a try.

 

If you find a feature really awesome, please share!

Thanks for this.  I passed along this link on a Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users group I participate in, as I'd not seen this information before.

@britechguy ~ May 17th is Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), you might want to share with your 'Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users group' that there is a short film by Microsoft (on 5/17/2018) which will address how one can build a more inclusive environment, and to empower people to reimagine accessibility. Registration is required to see the film, see below.

 

The link to register and for more information: https://resources.office.com/ww-landing-M365E-Global-Accessibility-Awareness-Day-preregistration.html?LCID=en

 

Additional information (link) about the same topic: https://educationblog.microsoft.com/2018/05/reimagining-accessibility-creating-inclusive-classrooms/

 

(Note: When I registered, I was allowed to have myself as the company with one employee and my position other, no problem)
