Welcome to the Accessibility Advocate

Let's talk about accessibility.

Office.com’s accessibility survival guide

Just as disability takes many forms, so too does assistive technology. That's why the Accessibility Advocate explores living with disability, its challenges as well as strides gained.

We cover a range of disability, overt and hidden, chronic and temporary, including:

  • visual

  • auditory

  • physical

  • speech

  • cognitive

  • neurological

  • developmental

A variety of voices and perspectives contribute to this conversation, from the people who depend on assistive technology to the people who create it and beyond.


The Accessibility Advocate's mission is straightforward: to shine a light on the people and tools that make work and life easier for people living with disability. We'll talk about what's new in assistive technology, and what's on the horizon. Here you'll find out about everything from the latest advancements in screen-reading technology to the new thinking about ADHD.
