Google Sheets

Forum
macOS & Mac Apps

I have to use Google Sheets for a project. Is there a way to use Google Sheets accessibly on the Mac? If not, can Google Sheets be used in iOS?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

1. I use www.chromevox.com with mac Alex TTS with Google Sheets and it works well. There are great support resources for getting started and up and running withthe basics.
2. iOS Sheets with VoiceOver works reasonably well.

I downloaded Chrome and installed ChromeVox. So far, it is not at all working as advertised. VoiceOver and ChromeVox are constantly talking over each other. Also, I cannot enter my email address in the appropriate field to sign in to Google. Every time I press a letter, I get the clicking noise that indicates the text cannot be entered. Lastly, the file on Google Sheets has information, but neither ChromeVox nor VoiceOver is reading the information. I am trying both the VoiceOver and the ChromeVox commands. What is going wrong? I'm running the latest version of El Capitan on a late 2011 MacBook Pro.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I've had the best luck with the iOS versions of Docs and Sheets. You can use it on the Mac, however it's quirky. ChromeVox doesn't really click with me, and the iOS versions of these support all the keyboard commands that the web versions do, so I just use that.
