Microsoft 365 Accessibility Options

Microsoft 365 has been designed to meet the needs of people with different abilities, and there are a huge number of features available to users to assist them with engagement with their products. Features include making documents easier to read, increased zoom capability, and reading digital and physical text (textbooks or handouts) out loud.

They have handily broken down the different features into six different groups:

Vision Impairment

Hearing Impairment


Learning Impairment


Mental Health
