Accessibility for different impairments

An inclusive intranet – just press tab

Creating an inclusive environment is only a click away. For users, it couldn’t be easier. The tool is triggered with the first hit of the "tab" key on the keyboard – focusing on the needs of visually impaired users – or just by clicking the accessibility icon.

Easily deployed in minutes, the Accessibility Tool for SharePoint adheres to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

AI capabilities

Built on Azure Cognitive Services, the Accessibility Tool takes advantage of the cloud-based AI capabilities within Azure, offering blind and visually impaired customers cognitive understanding for vision and speech. The Accessibility Tool is AI-powered - text is transformed into speech, and images and videos are instantly accessible with no coding or changes to existing content.
