Recorded: August 31, 2021 – Accessibility features are meant to make the use of technology less challenging for those with disabilities. Common accessibility features include screen readers, text-to-speech, closed-captioning, voice control and keyboard shortcuts. Additional access features are designed to work with various assistive technologies including switch technologies.
In this third webinar of the series, we will review the access features found in the Google Chromebooks and Android OS devices.
Participants will learn:
- How these features can assist users to control/activate the accessibility features of each device
- How people can access content, navigate, and control their devices
- Where to get more information and training.
