[nobe-l] Accessibility of Google Apps

At our annual convention, perhaps at the NFBCS meeting, I remember hearing
that the International Braill and Technology Center has been working with
and collecting information about this.  Especially when something that works
but stops working, it would be a good idea to report it.  I believe
access at nfb.org gets a note to them.

Best regards,

I use Google Forms and sheets, all the time, and docx once in a while. I
find they work best using Firefox and NVDA. In forms, the drop down answers
can be filled in by users using speech, but the check boxes and multiple
choice selections in question responses do not seem to work. We also use
Google Groups for mailing to multiple people, and it used to work very well.
The button that allows a manager to direct add people no longer is visible
to any of our screen readers. Unfortunately, this was the audio captcha.
