How many of you felt as though you have benefitted greatly from Google Drive and its collection of productivity tools that allows you to work on the move thanks to an Internet connection? If you have answered in the affirmative, then you will be pleased to know that there are improvements made to Google Drive alongside a slew of its editors – Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, and Forms, in order to cater for the blind and low-vision users in mind.
It is said that the new Drive will be accompanied by better keyboard accessibility, not to mention offer support for zoom and high-contrast mode as well as improved usability with screen readers. It does not matter whether you are rocking to Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings and Forms, users will see that it is a whole lot easier for one to make use of a screen reader, sporting better text-to-voice verbalization as well as improvements made to keyboard navigation. Not only that, there will be other updates such as support for alt text on images in Docs, additional screen reader improvements specifically for Docs, Sheets and Slides, the ability to quickly search the menus and perform actions in Docs, Slides and Drawings (with Sheets and Forms to follow soon), never mind that you do not know of the action’s key sequence.
