Google Drive is an application that allows you to access your online storage service from anywhere. And regardless of the platform, blind users can access Google Drive with a screen reader.
With Google Drive, you will be able to work with your colleagues in real time, as you can share documents and presentations. Furthermore, you can assign them comments and receive comment notifications.
The application features powerful search tools that allow you to filter your Drive content. Google Drive uses OCR technology to read scanned documents, as well as image recognition to identify images.
