The latest Chrome OS update improves accessibility on Chromebooks


ChromeVox, the platform’s built-in screen reader, now has simpler menu navigation. On pages with multiple languages, the feature will change voices as it reads the text and flits between languages.

Meanwhile, Google has made it easier to export websites as accessible PDFs in Chrome — not just on Chromebook. The browser can create PDFs with automatically generated links, headings, alt-text and tables. That will make PDFs more legible to screen reading software, Google says, which should help more people understand whatever information a webpage holds.

Chrome OS 86 is rolling out now. It should be available to all Chromebook users in the coming weeks.
