Accessibility is about making our products accessible and inclusive to everyone, including the 1 billion+ people with disabilities around the world. It is a core Excel and Microsoft priority, and an area where we continuously strive to improve. For more information about Microsoft’s commitment to accessibility, visit microsoft.com/accessibility.
Making Excel more accessible is a journey, and we will always have room for improvement as we strive to make spreadsheets work for everyone. We have three overarching objectives to guide us:
As a part of our goal to help you create accessible content, there is a new contextual ribbon called “Accessibility” coming to Excel. The Accessibility ribbon will be available when you open the Check Accessibility pane on the Review tab. On the Accessibility ribbon you will find a collection of the most common tools you need to make your workbook accessible. The ribbon is available today to those in the Office Insiders program.
To learn more about the Accessibility ribbon, view our announcement on the Office Insiders blog. If you are interested in learning more about how to create accessible workbooks, check out our support article Make your Excel documents accessible to people with disabilities.
Please let us know what you think! Your feedback and suggestions shape our approach to accessibility and inclusive design. To get in touch, contact the Disability Answer Desk or use Help > Feedback. We look forward to hearing from you!
This is the first in a series of blogs about our accessibility work in Excel. We hope you will join us over the next several months as we discuss exciting new improvements to Excel through an inclusive lens.
