St. Xavier’s College, XRCVC -Viviana extension is happy to announce an online workshop on the theme “Using Standard G-mail with NVDA & JAWS” under its Tech Roshni series – A step at bridging the digital divide for blind and low vision persons. This Workshop is supported by the Dhun Pestonji Parakh Discretionary Trust.
Extensive use of Android phones and G-mail has become an integral part of today’s lifestyle. Many screen reader users are using basic html view while using G-mail, on computer due to simple web base interface. But Google is removing basic HTML view from Gmail in 2024. Standard View provides an interface like that of other Google Workspace programs, and can be functional using keyboard commands stated by Google. It also offers access to the entire range of Gmail features.
In an upcoming workshop, we will learn some basic features of G-mail in standard view with screen reader NVDA & JAWS.
