Our commitment and approach

Microsoft is committed to designing products and services that can be used by everyone.

Over one billion people in the world have a disability and we’re passionate about ensuring that our products and services work for everyone. We understand the power of technology, and that’s why we continue to innovate, create, and design in a way that gives everyone the ability to achieve more.

We’ve found that many of our accessibility-focused innovations and features allow us to deliver richer, more flexible experiences for a wider range of users—not just those with disabilities. We’re committed to transparency, accountability, and inclusion in our products and our culture, and we're deeply inspired by the opportunity to work with people across the globe to explore what’s possible.
