Date: July 27, 2021
Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm

About the Series

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. 

Program Description

Microsoft logoAccessibility 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.

Participant will learn:

  • How these features can assist users to control/activate the accessibility features of each device
  • How people can access content, navigate, and control their devices
  • Where to get more information and training.


John Brandt is the Training Coordinator for Maine’s Assistive Technology program, Maine CITE. An early adopter of all technology, he has consulted on education, accessibility, and information technology for many years.
