Accessibility standards

Learn how Microsoft products conform with global standards so you can make informed procurement decisions for your organization.

Ensuring inclusion

Accessible technology is a vital part of creating an inclusive society. By developing and deploying accessible technology, governments and other organizations can interact with and provide services to the public more easily, increase employment of people with disabilities within their organizations, and create a work environment where everyone can contribute.

Public and private entities must be able to trust that their purchases meet the needs of people with disabilities while complying with legal requirements and meeting global standards. They also need access to reliable documentation to reinforce that trust.

Microsoft is committed to helping our customers meet their procurement requirements. That’s why Microsoft provides conformance statements to demonstrate how our products meet common global accessibility standards.
