A useful function has been added to the repertoire of Google Chrome.
Luckily, Google’s developers haven’t gotten tired of the fact that Chrome has dominated the browser market for years, so they keep coming up with modifications to make people’s lives easier. Recently, for example, they declared war on the annoying CAPTCHA checks, and also announced a change to a button that was misleading many.
And now, on the occasion of Global Accessibility Awareness Day, which warns about the importance of accessibility, they have come up with a bunch of new functions, one of which will be available to all users in the world.
It is precisely the fact that the Chrome browser can now recognize incorrectly typed web addresses and automatically suggest how to correct them. There is probably not a single Internet user on the planet who does not make typos from time to time, so we can wholeheartedly welcome the move.
The only question is when the beautiful new world will welcome you Google’s statement promised it in vain, that the change will take effect immediately in the desktop edition, at the time of writing our article, the desired correction suggestions did not even appear when entering “goolge.com” and “facebok.com”. As for mobile Chrome, the feature is expected to debut sometime in the coming months.
As for other developments in accessibility, in addition to correcting mistyped URLs, Google has made the Live Caption service available on several Android devices, as well as set the default for marking wheelchair-accessible places on maps, which is already used by 40 million stores worldwide.
The search giant also promises to bring text-to-speech to the Wear OS 4 smartwatch operating system later this year, and has begun privately testing an AI-based accessibility feature that tells the blind and visually impaired about the content of images on web pages. even in response to individual questions.
