Riccobono, President of the National Federation of the Blind, said: “For many years Anne Taylor has transformed the desire of blind people to participate equally in technology development into meaningful action that has advanced accessibility. I am confident that her skill, passion, and deep connection to blind people all over the country will make a tremendous difference in moving Microsoft to a high standard of built-in accessibility across all of its products and services.”
