Hi all ATHENites

Has anyone found a solution or a workaround to Google's new two device sign
in? My (personal) challenges are that the adaptive software I use for voice
navigation & dictation doesn't work on my phone and prevents me from
accessing my work email account(s). This is as significant a barrier to
access as CAPTCHA is: requires physical ability to type and/or recognize
odd shaped letters & numbers (not compatible with screen readers either).

I don't mind answering a security question or verifying my identity, but
not by being forced to use two devices and technology which is not
accessible for adaptive tech.

In the meanwhile, I can't access two principal email accounts I need for

Any workarounds welcome. I've reported this to the Google Accessibility

Thanks in advance.
