Accessibility for users

Google Workspace has been designed with users being the primary focus. The mission is to make the product accessible for all users, including people with disabilities, such as those with color vision deficiency and visual and hearing impairment. Google has been building accessibility into their products and Google Workspace is no exception.

To make it easier for organizations to comply with Accessibility standards, a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is available for several Google Workspace services:

The accessibility features include screen reader compatibility, a larger font for the user interface, enabling IMAP/POP to allow users to use their choice of mail client, braille device compatibility, and more.
