CALL Scotland have just launched a helpful A3 colour poster which has real potential for helping raise awareness of the built-in assistive technologies available in all Chromebooks.
Chromebooks first arrived on the scene in 2011 and are popular for being affordable, lightweight and quick to ‘boot-up’ laptops.
Recent accessibility updates to the Chromebook have been greatly enhanced and now include a range of built-in accessibility tools found on other devices such as Windows, Macs and iPads.
The poster highlights important tools such as:
- Finding and turning on accessibility features
- Listening to text spoken aloud
- Voice Typing
- Magnification tools
- Mouse options including dwell clicking.
