Today, we celebrate GAAD (Global Accessibility Awareness Day | May 16th, 2019) with a special episode of The Intrazone podcast.

 

'Accessibility from the start' means SharePoint, OneDrive and other Microsoft 365 apps aspire to "represent the voice of people with disabilities" throughout planning, development, design, testing and into production with continuous feedback. It's something that must be built into every product Microsoft makes so that our offerings are inclusive for everyone.

 

In this episode, we hear from three accessibility experts: Megan Lawrence, PhD (senior technical evangelist - Microsoft), Eli Waalkes (senior program manager – SharePoint/Microsoft) and Lauren Back (usability engineering – HCL Technologies).

 

The full audio of episode #30 is accessible below and/or review the show’s transcript.
