Accessibility Update: GMail and Google Calendar

The Access Technology Higher Education Network (ATHEN) has released its latest in a planned series of reports on the accessibility of key components of Google Apps for Education. Its first review, released last October, addressed accessibility issues with Google Docs.

The following summarizes the group’s key finding: “Other than performing some base level operations in each application, neither GMail nor [Google] Calendar can be considered equitably accessible to all user groups, especially for the visually impaired.”
