All customers in the UT Dallas community were upgraded to Microsoft Teams for instant messaging and collaboration. In addition to the tools that Teams provides, there are also helpful accessibility resources for the features within the Office 365 applications for our customers with low or no vision, and those who are deaf and/or hard of hearing.

With more than 1 billion people in the world with disabilities, there is no limit to what people can achieve when technology reflects the diversity of all those who use it. OIT is committed to making its Electronic and Information Resources (EIRs) accessible to our customers with diverse abilities in the UT Dallas community.

Where can I find information on Office 365 accessibility?

OIT has created an Accessibility Resource for Office 365 page to provide important information for visual impairment and deaf/hard of hearing resources for Office 365. In addition, Microsoft also has a dedicated accessibility website that serves as a portal for finding their help resources for accessibility.
