How To Create Inclusive Content With The New Accessibility Assistant In Microsoft 365?
Microsoft has announced the launch of Accessibility Assistant in Microsoft 365 which is a bundle of innovative tools to help creators produce more accessible content with less effort—and all within the natural flow of work.
Accessibility Assistant, which is a better version of the existing Accessibility Checker, introduces better defaults to prevent issues before they occur, real-time and in-context remediation to correct issues as they arise, and clear, simple guidance that appears in the flow of work.
For instance, users can leverage a new type of flag to call attention to accessibility issues while they write to bring immediacy and simplicity to the accessibility space.
A new Accessibility Assistant pane is also expected to launch later this year. This will offer a clean, efficient interface like Microsoft Editor, with plain-language explanations that help you address entire categories of accessibility issues more easily.
