Accessibility on Microsoft Teams

There are a variety of features in Teams to improve accessibility, including support for screen readers, live captions, transcripts and more. Microsoft has produced lots of guidance on how to best make use of these. Colleagues who are deaf or hard of hearing may find that using meeting functionality where possible for one-on-one calls may allow them more options than using normal dialling, and colleagues may wish to read about how to set up Teams meetings for deaf colleagues and those with hearing difficulties

If colleagues have a more specific accessibility concern, please contact the Occupational Health team or the DTS teams. Help can include the provision of additional technology, such as specialist headsets. Please make a request through the DTS Self Service Portal.
