Google has launched Vision Settings, which will allow users to control specifications such as magnification, font size, display size and TalkBack on their Welcome screen.  The Welcome screen appears when users activate and turn on their new Android devices.  This allows users with a visual impairment to independently set up their own device and immediately be able to activate the features they need. 

The updated Google Docs now enables users to type, edit and format using voice commands.  Simply say "copy" or "insert table" to edit or complete tasks without ever touching the screen.

Google is working on Voice Access Beta app which allows people with motor issues to control their Android devices with voice commands such as "open Chrome" or "go home".

Accessibility Scanner is another new Google feature which enables developers to test their apps and provides suggestions on how to further improve accessibility.
