Using personal experience to make Chromebooks accessible
My team and I have also developed Dictation on Chromebook, which allows a user to input text into any field on a Chromebook using their voice. This is especially useful not only for people with dexterity impairments, but also for anyone who wants to take a break from using their keyboard on Chromebook to type with their voice.
Our team is on a journey to make Chromebook as strong as possible for people with disabilities. Over the past couple of months, we dramatically improved the usability of Automatic Clicks, where users can set the cursor to automatically click or take action when the cursor stops moving for a certain amount of time — something that can be helpful for users with motor or dexterity challenges.
I believe that accessibility is a mindset that can be integrated into any aspect of technology. Whether you’re interested in machine learning, graphics, operating systems, hardware or gaming, there’s probably a pressing need for inclusive design.
