Although I personally use Apple product in my day to day work, it is great to see that accessibility is being considered by most of the industry when it comes to the devices available for students. A great example is the Chromebook, which is a low cost device that is very popular in education right now. The Chromebook runs Chrome OS, a streamlined operating system that emphasizes access to cloud-based tools and resources. In this video tutorial, I provide a quick overview of the accessibility features built into Chrome OS, including: a screen reader (ChromeVox), a screen magnifier, an option for enlarging the cursor, a high contrast mode and more.
