ATI Google Apps Accessibility Evaluation
Tuesday, October 11, 2011
The California State University Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) has posted a report on the accessibility of Google Apps. The report stems from a collaborative effort by volunteers from seven Cal State institutions and one University of California campus to assess the degree to which persons with disabilities can or cannot use Google Apps on roughly equal footing as those without such disabilities.
In addition to identifying various problems with Google Apps' accessibility, the report discusses possible options for working around those issues to provide effectively comparable services to persons with disabilities.
