Google is generating it much easier for folks to navigate Docs, Sheets, or Slides whilst employing refreshable braille displays and verbalization application. New improvements consist of a keyboard shortcut to toggle braille assistance, enhanced verbalization accuracy, and verbal announcements for misspellings and grammar errors.

In the previous, customers had to allow and disable braille assistance by means of the Accessibility menu in Docs, Sheets, or Slides. The new Ctrl+Alt+H (or CMD+Selection+H on Mac) keyboard shortcut saves customers from digging about the Accessibility menu just about every time they want to toggle braille assistance.

Enhanced verbalization assistance guarantees that customers generally know their cursor place whilst navigating documents. Docs, Sheets, and Slides now announce exactly where the cursor moves to, along with the contents of any table, slide, or cell. Today’s update also adds verbalization assistance for photos, misspellings, and grammar errors in documents—a function that appears extended overdue.

Google suggests that you update your browser and your assistive technologies to take benefit of these new functions and improvements.
