Inclusive meetings have become more complicated to manage for hybrid and all-remote meetings but there are methods and tools that can be used to elevate accessibility.

Make shared content easy to access and read

SharePoint Site Library

Content that is critical to a job function should be easy to access and to read.

Ensure voices are heard and understood

Live captions saying "Could you please send me the options we are proposing to the client" in a meeting.

Teams can detect what’s said in a meeting and can provide live captions. This feature is helpful for many people, not just those who may be hard of hearing.

  • Consider people in your meeting who may be experiencing background noise, have a poor internet connection, or are still in the process of learning the preferred language in the workplace.

  • Encourage everyone to take turns sharing their ideas by using the raise your hand feature.

Add a dial in number to all meetings
