Microsoft Cloud Services & Accessibility

Lots of people ask me about the ways that Live@edu can help them save money, or become more efficient but occasionally I get asked about how Microsoft makes its cloud services accessible to as many people as possible. Over at our education webcasts site we’ve posted up a webcast that talks about exactly that!

"Our vision is to create innovative technology that is accessible to everyone and that adapts to each person's needs. Accessible technology eliminates barriers for people with disabilities and it enables individuals to take full advantage of their capabilities."

- Bill Gates, Chairman, Microsoft Corporation,

Live@edu and Microsoft Office 365 bring together cloud versions of Microsoft's most trusted communications and collaboration products with the latest version of our desktop suite for educational institutions of all sizes. These Internet-based services are designed to help meet customer needs for institutional productivity, anytime anywhere access, and 24/7 reliability.

In this webcast, Alex Li, a Microsoft Senior Accessibility Strategist, outlines accessibility investments made in core components of Live@edu and Office 365: Exchange Online, Lync Online, SharePoint Online, the Office Web Applications and Office. Alex also provides demonstrations of our most compelling accessibility features, tying to the usage scenarios they enable.
