Quicker access to accessibility settings in Google Docs

Over the past month more right-click functionality has been added in Gmail, updates have been made to search in Google Drive, as well as small updates to Google Sites.

Google Docs, Sheets and Slides

You can now access all accessibility features such as screen reader support and the screen magnifier in one place, by clicking on the Tools menu and choosing Accessibility Settings.


Options will be displayed to turn on screen reader and screen magnifier support, with options to learn more from Google Support.



You can now right-click over a message in Gmail to view useful options to reply to a message, forward the message, and perform housekeeping tasks. You can also search for similar messages to the message selected, by finding messages from the selected sender or with the selected subject.


Google Drive

The Search drop-down has been updated in all G Suite additions, and you can now:

  • Click on a suggested search term to search for it
  • Click on a top collaborator to find files that you’ve collaborated on with that person
  • Click on a file type to find all files of that type
  • Click on the Edited Today button to show only files you’ve worked on today
  • Click on Starred to show only starred documents

Google Sites

You can now add a table of contents to a page that automatically includes all headings and subheadings on a page as links, and will update automatically as you edit the page.
