Tech giant Google has announced that a built-in screen recorder is coming to Chrome OS in March 2021. Google hopes the tool will make it easier for students and teachers to record virtual lessons.
The tech giant said in a statement that,
Teachers have long recorded lessons to help students do homework and study for tests, but in the past year it’s become downright critical for virtual learning,”
ChromeVox, the Chrome OS screen reader, will also be getting new features such as the ability to search ChromeVox menus and a voice switching feature that automatically changes the screen reader’s voice based on the language of the text.
Google further added that,
“It will also make it possible for parents to add a Google Workspace for Education account to their child’s Google account that is managed with Family Link. This feature allows parents to be able to monitor their kids with Family Link even though the kids are using a school account.”
