Google is generating it simpler for folks to navigate Docs, Sheets, or Slides although applying refreshable braille displays and verbalization application. New improvements consist of a keyboard shortcut to toggle braille help, enhanced verbalization accuracy, and verbal announcements for misspellings and grammar errors.

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

Enhanced verbalization help guarantees that customers often know their cursor place although 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 help for pictures, 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.
