Google Classroom is a free service which teachers use to send assignments, communicate with students and to monitor individual student progress. In one month (March - April, 2020) Google Classroom users doubled to over 100 million users as schools began to shut down due to COVID-19. With remote instruction, online classes, and hybrid classes, many students with visual impairments are also using or learning to use Google Classroom to access their coursework - including students who rely on NVDA or JAWS.
This video tutorial series provides step-by-step instruction on how to navigate and use Google Classroom with NVDA or JAWS. In the previous Google Classroom posts, April Bahl (SixDotMath) shared:

The View Your Work is a special page specific to one class - all the classwork that is assigned, returned or missing for that one class. On the View Your Work page, there are four filters: All, Assigned, Returned and Missing - this refers to assignments only in this specific class.
