Microsoft accessibility fundamentals
Accessibility is a responsibility. More than 1 billion people worldwide experience some form of disability. But only 1 in 10 have access to the assistive technology they need, which means many can’t fully participate in our economies and societies.
Accessibility is an opportunity. Inclusive organizations that embrace best practices for employing and supporting persons with disabilities in the workplace outperform their peers. They also attract and keep top talent. Millennials, who will be 75% of the global workforce by 2020, choose employers who reflect their values. To be a leader, you need to understand the fundamentals of accessibility and how this impacts your colleagues, employees and also the people you are delivering services to.
