An Introduction to Chromebook Accessibility

Tuesday, September 7, 2021,  2:00-3:30 ET via Zoom, Register.

Chromebooks are versatile and inexpensive computers that let you do common computing tasks using Google’s suite of products. They are very popular in education, being used by many students across the country. Recently, they gained the ability to run Android apps as well, making them even more potentially useful. However, Chromebooks do have some accessibility differences that can make it more difficult to learn for screen reader users. Come join the National Federation of the Blind Center of Excellence in Nonvisual Access on Tuesday, September 7 from 2:00-3:00 ET via Zoom to learn what the Chromebook can do and how to access its many features with a screen reader. Topics we will cover include:

  • Getting started with a Chromebook and Chromevox
  • Navigating the Chromebook interface
  • Using Google applications
  • Installing and using Android apps
  • And more

Please register for the introduction to Chromebook accessibility boutique today.
