The impact of technology and inclusion for all

There is no doubt that as Microsoft technologies have advanced, they have continued to empower every person and every organisation to achieve more. But how can technology and accessibility tools enable and proactively include real people - including those with disabilities or special needs - to achieve more in our everyday lives? In this session, Microsoft’s Senior Technology Evangelist, Hector Minto and GCI’s Microsoft Alliance Director, Margaret Totten discuss Microsoft’s investment in enabling everyone, why accessibility is so important and the impact of technology on all our lives. They will showcase how Microsoft solutions truly create accessibility for all, including new tools for people with complex needs such as dyslexia and dysgraphia or those with English as a second language, plus how technology allows workplaces to be more welcoming and inclusive.
