Improving real-time collaboration in Google Docs for assistive technology users

With live edits, it’s easier for users of assistive technologies, like screen readers and Braille displays, to keep track of real-time updates made by collaborators in a document. With live edits, you can view a periodically updated summary of collaborator changes in a convenient sidebar. New edits made by collaborators appear in the live edits sidebar.


To see live edits, open the Accessibility settings by going to Tools > Accessibilitysettings and check “Turn on screen reader support.” Then, select “Show live edits” from the Accessibility menu.
