Microsoft's second annual group of recipients of its AI for Accessibility grant were announced this week, in conjunction with Global Accessibility Awareness Day on May 16.

The grant was established in 2018, with the tech giant allotting a total of $25 million for funding artificial intelligence-powered, accessibility-focused projects over the course of five years. Each chosen company receives a one-year grant consisting of funding, engineering support and free use of Microsoft's Azure AI platform.

Here are the seven new AI for Accessibility grantees.
