Microsoft statement on website AccessibilityThursday, January 02, 2003
Business week interviewed Steve Balmer in June 2001 on the topic of Section 508 requirements. Since Microsoft's biggest customer is the US Government, these requirements are something Microsoft need to be fully aware of for their products. Also, their website comes under scrunity of accessibility as laid out by ADA, so the inevitable question and what appears to be an answer.
Q: So how does Microsoft make its Web site accessible to people with disabilities?
A: Making microsoft.com accessible to all people is a priority. We continue our efforts to implement common Web accessibility techniques to ensure that all parts of Microsoft.com are accessible.
