Google issues

On the "accessible" google group, many folks are saying that google is not being as responsive as it could be. I guess they are dropping some featrues and that bothers some people. I am still trying to figure out how to import gmail messages into Microsoft Outlook if I switch to gmail, because people have said their e-mail interface is unwieldy as I found at Center for Human Development. The Google calendar was not accessible, either, and some people did not like the new Google music beta either in terms of accessibility. People have had trouble navigating with Google Chrome and they were not able to interact with web pages. So, there is definitely more to do and I hope Google reacts to these issues. I knoew that Google Docs did not work well with JAWS. How it works with NVDA, VoiceOver, WindowEyes, Hal or System Access, or ZoomText, I don't know. I don't know how well they work with mobile devices. Apparently,, there is a survey from google, so maybe I'll check that out. Koraling Lynne

As a member of the Missouri Council of the Blind, I share many of the concerns you have expressed in your post on Sunday. Would be permissible for me to forward your post to our Missouri-L list and to the ACB-Chat list? The more folks are acquainted with it, the more we might be able to help resolve the Google issues. As a Windoweyes 7.5 user, I find Google's services hit and miss as to their accessibility. So, the more we get the word out the more folks join in the effort.
