Hi all,

We are working to change licensing for Office365 applications at the University of Arizona. They would like to see most employees use the online applications (free) rather than a desktop application (uses a license).

I know that anyone using a screen reader and possibly other assistive technology will need a desktop application just simply because the online versions are a bear to work with when using a screen reader - not necessarily impossible but certainly not nice.

Bear Down,

Dawn Hunziker
