Inclusion & Accessibility

Necessary for Some, Convenient for All: Chromebook Accessibility Features (E2208-14)


Description
Accessibility, or A11y for short, is often seen as a 1:1 for individuals with disabilities. However, the problem with this view is that we miss tools that would create a more user-friendly device or provide additional productivity for all users. This course will explore some basic ‘features’ to support reading, writing, and mathematics both within Google and as extensions to Google.
