In addition to being able to pan and zoom within Maps using your keyboard, you can now find and learn more about specific places like neighborhoods, transit stations and shops and restaurants. This feature, which is screen-reader compatible, makes Maps more accessible for visually impaired users.
Here’s how it works:
- On your keyboard, press Tab to focus the map. An area of the map will be highlighted with a square.
- Below the square, there will be a numbered list of places in that area.
- To move around the map, use the arrow keys. To move the map by one square, hold down Shift while using the arrow keys.
- To zoom in or out of the map, press + or -.
- To learn more about a place, press the number associated with the place.
