New Windows 7 Video: Driving Better Accessibility and Performance with UIA Interoperability

Take a look at our latest video on Windows 7 accessibility and how interoperability plays a key role in achieving digital inclusion through both Assistive Technology (AT) and Information Technology (IT).  You can see how Microsoft enables users to connect with third-party Assistive Technology products like open source or other commercially available AT products to enhance their computing experience. 

Did you know that Windows 7 includes an application programming interface called UI Automation (UIA)?  This new accessibility framework for the Windows® operating system improves the way the operating system and Windows applications expose information to assistive technologies.  UIA was released via the Community Promise to allow anyone to incorporate it into their solutions, making this a fully interoperable interface compatible with platforms other than Windows.
