Learn about the importance of accessibility and how to unlock the full potential of your Microsoft products. We will be joined by Microsoft practitioners Deepthi Kapila, Yesh Naidu, and Carolina Mesa Fernandez for a 45 minute workshop and 15 minute Q&A session. No prior knowledge required! Please see the below event description provided by Carolina:

As we think about what an accessibility journey might look like, the first question many people ask is, 'What exactly is accessibility?' It can mean different things to different people. When some people think of accessibility, structures with accessibility in mind. You might also think about digital accessibility – ensuring that people are connected to other people and information, and that they have user interfaces that are customizable and adaptive to their needs. But really accessibility is about enabling people to achieve whatever it is they want to achieve. It's about letting people fully participate and contribute. Ultimately, it's creating experiences that are better for everyone. Over the course of this session our speakers will provide the audience with an overview of the Microsoft Accessibility vision and products enabled to meet the needs of everyone.

We believe that there is no limit to what people can achieve when technology reflects the diversity of all who use it. This is why we created a 45 minute event showing how people at school and work can achieve more with the built-in accessibility tools and features in Microsoft technologies. It will focus on features in Microsoft 365 (Edge, Outlook, Office) including tools like Immersive Reader and Accessibility Checker, ending with a Q&A session.
