Google continues to build on it’s promise, to make the world more accessible for people with disabilities. Google Maps will now display wheelchair accessibility.  Check out this story from the Assistive Technology Blog.  As technology continues to progress, improved accessibility for all will continue to grow.  We shared a story about Google introducing accessibility projects last year and we will share it again here.
