yes the standard mode isn't that bad to use once you are familiar with the screen layout. but have you done any chat or video calls through the standard google or i should say gmail interface? if so can you tell me any tricks you have found to make it easier to use e.g. steps you go through for a. a chat session and b. step you go through to make a video call.


have a good day

Well, if google require that you must Gmail in standard moad to be
able to use hangouts, they can forget it. Another reason why they will
never grow up. Its just one of the many ways that they show that they
not really dead serious about improving access for blind people. Even
TalkBack now stil stay behind. I don't even have much nice experience
with the google talk on I o s, so why will this desktop version be
better? They can fly.
