The Access Technology Higher Education Network (ATHEN), in its continuing
effort to assist higher education institutions ascertain the accessibility
of the Google Apps suite, conducted accessibility evaluations on GMail and
Google Calendar. The evaluations cover assistive technologies used for
visual, mobility, learning, and cognitive disabilities. Many assistive
technologies performed quite well in GMail and Calendar, but there were
still significant hurdles for some technologies, particularly screen
readers. The report may be read online at


ATHEN will continue its work by performing additional evaluations on other
applications within the Google Apps suite.

Any questions or comments about this report can be directed to Greg Kraus (

Interest Group.
