When a new technology is developed, accessibility is often not considered until after it launches and is in use. XR technologies are no exception. Some XR technologies use hardware and software that may not be fully accessible for people with disabilities. If these inaccessible technologies are brought into your workplace, they may prevent employees from doing their jobs.
