Empowerment begins with inclusion

Microsoft provides a robust platform for students to fully engage with their curricula, classmates, and teachers in powerful new ways.

Microsoft tools and solutions work in tandem with Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles, among others, and help teachers spend less time creating workarounds and more time working with their students.


Learning Tools and immersive reader technologies provide a critical link for students who need help accessing course content.


Tools like Enhanced Dictation help make writing and in-class note taking easier and more efficient.


Automated alt text and Translator ensure that students are able to access the content that teachers are presenting.

Tools that help teachers connect with every student:

Microsoft Translator

Automatic alt text
