Accessibility at Microsoft: More Challenges than Victories

For years Microsoft has left the blind with no access to Windows phones. Given that iOS and Android phones have had some form of nonvisual access for years, we find this frustrating, if not shameful. It is even more disheartening when we remember that, when Windows Phone was first released to the market in 2010, Microsoft made a very clear business decision not to include or support a screen reader for the Windows Phone platform.
