Accessibility Improvements in Visual Studio 2017 From Jenny Lay-Flurrie
• The upcoming release of Visual Studio will feature some important and highly requested improvements in accessibility focused on the new installer experience: to be keyboard accessible and enable high contrast preferences. The VS Debugger is being revamped to make debugger windows and widgets fully accessible to screen reader and keyboard users. Lastly, the editor window is undergoing improvements, ranging from making all controls accessible to screen reader users to ensuring keyboard access is consistent and thorough. We expect continuous updates to roll out after the launch of Dev15, increasingly supporting accessibility scenarios. Feedback is welcome through the Visual Studio UserVoice forum.
