Google Meet Allows You To Use Inclusion Tools. See How To Use


Google Meet became an essential tool for daily life in the job market and in the Brazilian educational system during the covid-19 pandemic. On the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Google announced three new tools for accessibility and inclusion in the video-calling platform.

In Brazil alone, the use of Google Meet grew by around 275% with the adaptation to work and remote learning, which reveals the importance of inclusion in digital spaces. To contribute to a better development in professional activities in collaborative spaces for people with disabilities, Google brought the feature of instant captions, screen readers / magnifying glass and keyboard shortcuts.
