The Accessibility, Accommodations and Adaptive Computer Technology (AAACT) team will highlight the accessibility features that are built into Android and iOS devices and that can be used on your Government of Canada-issued smartphone.

Participants will learn about:

  • accessibility features on iOS and Android smartphones
  • accessibility features built into Windows 10 and Microsoft 365
  • other accessibility tools for Windows 10 that are available in the marketplace
  • non-IT solutions to removing accessibility barriers, such as furniture, lighting and so on


The AAACT team will answer questions from participants and, upon request, is prepared to demonstrate how most of the adaptive technology works.
