  1. Microsoft and a lack of assistive technology hardwares

    The biggest challenging for Microsoft is that to create its own assistive technology hardwares, such as braille display device, magniflying machine, etc. I'm not sure it's discriminatory if the company preferred to hire the engineers who can create software apps like Seeing AI, rather than developing hardwares.

    In addition, if you look it carefully, Microsoft makes both hardwares and softwares like tablet and apps, so why they haven't made hardwares for customers with disability?

    I wanted to know what Jenny thought about this issue.

      This is concept explained on a separate page:

      "Hyperlink information: Mostly, users don’t find clear and accurate information about the hyperlinks inserted in a document, spreadsheet or presentation. The accessible templates include appropriate description about the hyperlinks. For example, click here hyperlink is…
