Accessibility improvements for Google Docs

Quick launch summary 

We’re making several improvements to accessibility features in Google Docs. Some enhancements you’ll notice are:

  • Improvements in how screen readers verbalize content, including for non-text information like comments and suggestions. 
  • Improvements in how Braille displays render content, including symbols, emojis, and other glyphs. 
  • Improved support for navigating through elements such as tables, headers, and footers.
  • Improved caret tracking. 
We hope these improvements make it easier for users of assistive technologies to work in Google Docs.
