People with Disabilities Can Now Easily Access a Document
The Microsoft Office suite already has a feature called Check Accessibility that makes it easier to read content for people of any level. This function can be used before sending the e-mail message or sharing the document or spreadsheet. Microsoft is making this process even easier by adding the ability to perform accessibility checks in the background. This allows Office to remind you at the right time when you should investigate further, instead of relying on the ability to pre-conceive the need.
It will sit quietly from the status bar without consuming valuable information on the screen and will give you an instant reminder with a one-click action to make your content more accessible to people with disabilities and more usable for everyone.
Here’s how you can enable this feature:
- Start the accessibility check (which automatically enables this function) by clicking Review> Check Accessibility.
- Enable it from File> Options> Easy Access> Continue performing accessibility check while working.
This feature is released as part of the latest version of Office for Windows Insider released March 15, 2019 Version 1904 (Build 11504.20000).
