Microsoft : 5 accessibility features that empower everyone

06/19/2019 | 01:39pm EDT

Empowering everyone means creating technology that reflects human diversity. Many of the features designed for people with disabilities can be used by all because they're created to help make work, lifeand play easier.

Microsoft's recent Ability Summit gathered employees and, on its second day, the broader disability community to participate in sessions, a product expositionand the Disability Talent Job Fair. This included people with disabilities, parents of children with disabilities, and accessibility-focused engineers, specialists and organizations.

Here's a glimpse at five featureshighlighted duringthis year's Ability Summitand accessibility product exposition.

Set yourvisual tone
Your screen should fit your vision needs, including color, lightand filter optimizations. Whether you prefer bright, vivid screens for designing and gaming, or you rely on low light or high contrast for better visibility, you can easilyset your default tones and color filters across devices and applications.

Go screen-free with narration
If you don't usea screen - or if you're multitasking - Narrator, builtinto Windows 10,can read pages out loud, describe imagesand link users to content via a Braille keyboard. Office 365 isdesigned to work seamlessly with Narrator and other screen readers. Andapps like Seeing AI and Microsoft Soundscape go a step further, narratingthe world around people who are blind orlow vision.

Navigate with AI-powered apps
Microsoft 365 makes it easier to steer around your screenwith the keyboard shortcuts, voice commandsand eye control built into Windows 10. You can also quickly find the documents and people you need using the Microsoft Search bar in Windows 10 and Office 365 applications.

And through Microsoft's newly announced partnership with Moovit -a popular transit app - navigating the physical world will get easier, too. Developers who use Azure Maps will gain access to the app's trip planner and transit data, including wheelchair-friendly routes. With this information, they can build innovative, accessible tools to help people of all abilities travel more easily and safely.

Enhance comprehension and learning
Microsoft 365 helpspeople of varying hearingand language needs with auto-generated subtitlesandcaptions for videos and presentationsbuilt into PowerPoint and Stream. Auto-generated transcripts provide comprehensive notes of meetings to enhance everyone's team experience, productivityand collaboration. Increased spacing between lines and letters;word suggestions that appear while typing;and reader support that breaks up tricky parts of speechare features developed for people with dyslexia but can help anyone.

Find your focus
We're all distracted sometimes, but for those who regularly struggle to concentrate, features like Focus Assist and Reading View are designed to help keep us on task. Clear distracting content from web pages; block unwanted alerts and notifications; and breeze through your to-do list by keeping track of projects and deadlines across synced applications.
