#ATIA20 Audio: The Quest For Greater Access For Microsoft And Windows 10


Joe and Jason Grieves, Product Manager Low Vision Windows Accessibility, sure find interesting places to conduct interviews. A coffee shop with a Bose nova soundtrack was the setting for their NFB 2019 chat. This year the pair sat out by the pool with wind, light rain and bad cover songs in the background. Regardless of the auditory conditions, Jason and Joe talk about what's recently come to Windows Magnifier and Narrator in the latest Windows 10 updates. And Jason provides some idea of what is in store with the next update arriving later this year such as Magnifier Reader. To stay up to date with everything going on with access at Microsoft, and to attend their new webinar series, follow Microsoft Access on Twitter
