Office Online Server will offer the same functionality Microsoft offers to general consumers with Office Online. Today, Microsoft announced the second major update to Office Online Server with improvements to Word, PowerPoint and more. It includes the following improvements,

  • Performance improvements to co-authoring in PowerPoint Online.
  • Equation viewing in Word Online.
  • New navigation pane in Word Online.
  • Improved undo/redo in Word Online.
  • Enhanced W3C accessibility support for users who rely on assistive technologies.
  • Accessibility checkers for all applications to ensure that all Office documents can be read and authored by people with different abilities.
