Inclusive Innovation Showroom Demonstrates Accessibility

Microsoft's Inclusive Innovation Showroom demonstrates how accessibility features in Microsoft products and assistive technology solutions developed by Microsoft partners can make it easier for anyone to see, hear, and use a computer at work or at home.

The Showroom uses real-world scenarios to illustrate how people of all abilities- including those with vision, mobility, learning, and hearing impairments- can use accessible and assistive technology to customize their computing experience according to their own preferences and needs. The Showroom features four personas, each designed to illustrate a different set of unique needs and technology solutions.

In addition to conducting research and overseeing Microsoft's overall accessibility efforts, the accessibility group creates tools, such as the User Interface Automation platform, which help industry partners ensure that their accessibility applications and devices work seamlessly with Microsoft products.

The event will include a one hour tour of the Inclusive Innovation Showroom along with a one hour presentation discussing Microsoft's Accessibility Website and tools.

Please Note: There are only 26 member spots for this tour.

This will be a first come, first served registration and is only open to PSHFES Members.
