At a time when businesses are increasingly using web accessibility software to make their websites accessible to everyone, Microsoft has released a new add-on that does the same thing for its Office software.

As more than 1 billion people are currently living with a disability, the software giant’s Office engineering team has created a new accessibility add-on called Accessibility Reminder for Microsoft Office.


According to a new blog post, Accessibility Reminder helps raise awareness of the importance of making your organization’s Office documents accessible with tips and tricks for fixing accessibility issues. With the app’s comment feature, disabled users can even remind their fellow colleagues that something in the document needs to change so they can see or hear it.

The Accessibility Reminders app is currently available in Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint for both desktop and web.

Microsoft’s new Accessibility Reminders app allows users to insert reminder comments into Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint slides to spread awareness of any issues they may be having when attempting to collaborate with others.

In addition to more general comments, users can also create custom comments to notify specific document authors and include personalized messages, organization-specific links, training, and more.

To install Microsoft’s Accessibility Reminders app, you’ll first need to navigate to this website, sign in with your Microsoft 365 email address, and fill out a short form. From here, you’ll be taken to the Microsoft Garage Project download site where you can specify which applications you want to install and use the app.

While Microsoft released its Adaptive Controller back in 2018 to help disabled gamers play games on Xbox and PC, its new Accessibility Reminders app is a great way to work while working from home and collaborating with your coworkers on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Will be a great help to them. ,
