Use the Google Meet touchscreen for accessibility

You can use the touchscreen controller with Google Meet hardware.

Use spoken feedback

Spoken feedback speaks the text on the active screen. A rising tone indicates that the screen reader is on, and a falling tone indicates that it’s off. You can also turn it on or off in settings on the touchscreen. For details, read Use the Meet touchscreen.

To turn spoken feedback on or off:

  1. Using 2 fingers, touch and hold any area of the screen until you hear "ChromeVox spoken feedback is ready.”
  2. To turn off spoken feedback, using 2 fingers, touch and hold any area of the screen.

When spoken feedback is turned on, adjust the volume by dragging the right side of the screen up or down. 

Note: Only use one input source at a time. If you use a touchscreen, then the physical keyboard, you might need to restart spoken feedback.

Use Hey Google voice control

For details, read Use Hey Google voice control.

Turn captions on or off

You can use the touchscreen to turn live captions on or off. They show the text of the conversation on the monitor during video meetings. They don’t appear in recorded meetings. For details, read Use captions in a Meet hardware video meeting.
