Webinar: Accessibility Features – Microsoft
Date: July 27, 2021
Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm
This webinar is part of a series focused on the built-in accessibility features included with the major technology operating systems: Apple, Microsoft, and Google/Android.
Accessibility features are meant to make the use of technology less challenging for those with disabilities. Common accessibility features include screen readers, text-to-speech, closed-captioning, voice control and keyboard shortcuts. Additional access features are designed to work with various assistive technologies including switch technologies.
In this second webinar of the series, we will review the access features found in the world’s most popular operating system, Microsoft Windows, as well as several of their other popular software packages and hardware systems including their gaming devices.
The following list of July 2021 webinars on the topic of assistive technology and accessibility is generated by the Accessible Technology Consortia funded by the Center for Accessible Technology. Thank you.
