ATHEN Report on the Accessibility of GMail and Google Calendar

The Access Technology Higher Education Network (ATHEN) is continuing its functional evaluation of the components of the Google Application Suite to determine the accessibility of each component for users with various types of disabilities and assistive technology.

This evaluation covers GMail and Google Calendar (Calendar). There are several positive findings for users with certain types of disabilities, including users of:
● screen magnification software
● keyboard-only interactions
● some high-contrast visual layouts
This report is the second in a series of reports on the accessibility of Google Apps. Its predecessor, the “ATHEN Report on the Accessibility of Google Documents”, is available at http://athenpro.org/google-docs-accessibility.
