Audio Player 2018 Summer Convention Special #Sponsored: New Accessibility Features Coming To G Suite

You might not recognize the name G suite but you might be surprised to know that you may be using one of its products regularly. That s because G Suite is more than Slides, Sheets and Google Docs. Products like Hangouts, Google Calendar and Gmail are also a part of the many collaboration tools found within this powerful collection of useful apps.

Roger Benz, Accessibility Manager for G-Suite, gives J.J. an overview of some new accessibility features recently added to G Suite. Our conversation begins with talk about the enhancements made to Braille support for Screen Reader users for Google Docs and Sheets. We then turn to the new magnification improvements for tracking focus within Google Slides, Docs and Sheets. Also covered is a brief discussion about new changes made to Google Calendar and how you can add contacts to Google Meet.

Check out the Google Accessibility blog to learn more about what changes are happening at Google.
