Purpose of this guide
In an era when technology is redefining the workplace and creating a knowledge-based global economy that places a high value on communication, collaboration, and mobility, accessibility is increasingly essential in doing business. Accessible technology addresses the personal needs of all computer users, including those with physical disabilities, learning and language impairments, and age-related limitations, making it easier for organizations to empower employees, serve citizens, and engage with partners.
This guide from Microsoft® provides information about accessibility and accessible technology to help organizations worldwide ensure that all the people they serve or engage have equal access to information and services. For organizations new to accessibility and working with people with disabilities, accessibility can sometimes seem overwhelming. To help your organization meet the needs of people with all types of abilities, this guide provides specific information about many types of impairments and the accessible technology solutions that help address them.
