Role of Technology in Accessibility

Technology has provided a new way for accessibility to be a priority for employees and employers. Are there specific apps or programs that are important for employers to be familiar with in order to ensure disabled employees feel welcomed, comfortable, and successful? For example, what programs exist to facilitate virtual workspaces which make work environments more accessible?
