The Google team announced a number of new accessibility features for some of its flagship products.
And among them, we find an interesting change in Google Chrome, which will make navigation easier for the users. A dynamic that applies to both the desktop version of Chrome and the mobile app.
Google Chrome will help you type the correct URL
On the occasion of World Accessibility Awareness Day, Google announced a series of updates to its accessibility products and features. And one of them has to do with a new dynamic for Google Chrome.
As noted by the Google team, Chrome will detect when a URL is typed with a typo in the address bar, and automatically correct it to direct the user to the correct website. Or it may suggest different websites considering the error and possible consequences.
This makes it easy for people with dyslexia, language learners and anyone who makes typos to access previously visited websites despite misspellings.
More Accessibility Options in Google Chrome
This will prevent the user from typing the same error over and over again, or visiting the wrong website. A dynamic we’ve already seen in other web browsers like Edge. Microsoft’s browser has a typo checker to warn users and protect against phishing attacks.
In Chrome’s case, it’s a function that’s already available in the desktop version of Google Chrome, and will be implemented in the mobile app in the coming months.
On the other hand, the Google team recalled other functions implemented with the latest update to the web browser. For example, there’s a new way to manage tabs in Chrome for Android. This will allow them to organize and manage tabs according to their browsing needs.
