Version Of macOS App Was Tested On


Accessibility Comments

Surprisingly enough, It's very obvious Microsoft knew what they were doing with this. Voiceover gives a lot of information about the various controls which makes me think this is probably not coincidental. I haven't really delved into it, but it's pretty safe to say Microsoft put in a lot of work to make it accessible.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments

I'm not sure about the accessibility of the windows and mobile apps. This, though is very impressive and gives me high hopes for the new version of office that's do to come out this year.
