Today Microsoft detailed the accessibility improvements that are coming in Windows 8. Microsoft has worked hard on Windows 8, particularly the new Metro style experience is accessible to everyone regardless of their physical abilities.
Microsoft’s accessibility goals in Windows 8 are to:
- Improve the assistive technologies that are components of Windows, and provide a good experience with the Metro style UI.
- Provide developer tools that have baseline accessibility built in, so that accessible Metro style apps are available in the Store.
- Engage assistive technology vendors (ATVs) to adopt Windows 8 and build upon the accessibility scenarios.
Great job by Microsoft. But I want Microsoft to work on accessibility options in Windows Phone as well.
