Webinar Wednesday presents a major event on Microsoft Team usability and accessibility with Screen Readers

Over the last number of weeks, as many people have been forced to turn to remote solutions for learning, working and keeping in touch, you may well have heard of Microsoft Teams. This application has grown in popularity as more businesses and educational institutions are using it to make sure that their staff, students and customers can easily communicate.

Microsoft Teams is a chat-based collaboration platform complete with document sharing and online meeting features, to mention but a few. It integrates seamlessly into the Office 365 platform to allow for easy collaboration anywhere you have an internet connection.

In this major Webinar Wednesday event taking place on July 15th at 2:00 PM, we’ve brought together a number of contributors from Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands and the United States, to share their experiences of using Microsoft Teams with screen readers on PC and iOS-based platforms.

You will learn how to successfully use the application to create teams and add members, chat and collaborate with colleagues by sharing documents, set-up and manage meetings, and make one-to-one calls from your computer.

We’ll also spend time, as we demonstrate the application, talking about the accessibility features built into Teams and how it can work so well with the JAWS and VoiceOver screen readers.

Registering for this event is not necessary, and, in a change to our normal Webinar Wednesday sessions, this event is being held using Microsoft teams itself. If you wish to join the session, please access the link below at 2:00 PM on Wednesday July 15th. If joining from a mobile device, please install the Microsoft Teams application in advance.
