An Overview of Google Docs Accessibility Options

A couple of weeks ago I published an overview of tools to improve the accessibility of websites, videos, and slides. I thought that I should expand on that article by creating an overview of accessibility options available in Google Documents. To that end, I made the following video overview of Google Docs accessibility options.


In the video I demonstrated how to enable voice typing, how to select fonts designed to improve accessibility, and where to enable third-party accessibility tools like screen readers. I also demonstrated how to run the Grackle add-on to evaluate the accessibility of your documents as well as how to add alt-text to images in Google Docs.
