Google Meet accessibility

Users with disabilities can participate in Google Meet video meetings using accessibility features in Meet, Chrome Browser and Google meeting room hardware.

Accessibility features


  • Live captions: Display captions of the person speaking so that participants who are deaf or hard-of-hearing can follow what’s said in video meetings. If you record a video meeting, captions aren't recorded and don't appear when you play the recording.

  • Screen readers and magnifiers: Blind and low-vision users can use the built-in screen reader, full-page zoom, high-contrast colour and accessibility extensions in Chrome Browser.
