Microsoft’s Accessibility Journey: Putting the Candidate at the Center

Presented by

Don Tanedo, Liberty Munson (Microsoft)

and

Pat Hughes (Internet Testing Systems)

Microsoft is on a journey to create more delightful exam experiences, putting the candidate at the heart of every decision that is made about how we deliver our exams. By taking this focus, we are moving beyond what is strictly required by the law. While following WCAG standards is important, our focus on the candidate has not only led to more accessible exams, it has led to some surprising insights that are driving inclusivity and innovation in unexpected places. During this session, we will discuss our journey, what we have learned along the way, including best practices, tips, and tricks that you can use as you embark on your own accessibility journey, and where we go from here.
