Improved accessibility for Google Sheets, Slides, and Drawings
What’s new: We want to make sure our products work well for everyone. That’s why, as part of our ongoing accessibility initiatives, we’ve launched new features for Google Sheets, Slides, and Drawings. Specifically, we’ve added Braille support in Google Sheets, and screen magnifier support in Google Slides and Drawings.
Use Google Sheets with Braille displays
You can already use Braille displays to read and edit text in Docs, Slides and Drawings. Now we’ve added Braille support to Sheets as well. You can use a Braille display to read and edit cell contents as well as navigate between cells in a sheet. At the moment, Braille support in Sheets is only available on Chrome OS with the ChromeVox screen reader. We’re working to add support for other platforms and screen readers.
See our Help Center to find out how to use a Braille display with Sheets.
Use screen magnifiers with Google Slides and Drawings
We recently added screen magnifier support to Docs and Sheets. Now screen magnifiers also work with Slides and Drawings.
You can use screen magnifiers with Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drawings on Mac and Chrome OS devices.
