Our commitment to accessibility
Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. With roughly 1.2 billion people with disabilities in the world, we’re passionate about ensuring that our products and services are designed for people of all abilities. We are committed to transparency, accountability and inclusion in our products and our culture, and are deeply inspired by the opportunity to work with others around the world to explore what’s possible. There are no limits to what people can achieve when technology reflects the diversity of everyone who uses it.
