To find out more about how these programmes could work best for you, your learning style, and your studies, book a one-to-one training session with technology experts Diversity and Ability (D&A). 

Accessibility options are key to making programming inclusive to everyone. Join senior PM and accessibility expert Dante Gagne as we learn about best practices and the accessibility tools available in Visual Studio.

Visual Studio Code – Accessibility Tool

Visual Studio Code is a lightweight but powerful source code editor which runs on your desktop and is available for Windows, macOS and Linux.

Visual Studio Code has many features to help make the editor accessible to all users. Zoom and High Contrast colours improve editor visibility, keyboard-only navigation allows use without a mouse, and the editor has been optimised for screen readers.
