Chrome will start to guess your URLs

Google Chrome will now check for typos in your URLs and display suggested websites based on what it thinks you meant.

Google says that when you type a website into the Chrome address bar, it will now detect URL typos and suggest websites based on the corrections. This increases accessibility for people with dyslexia, language learners, and anyone who makes typos by making it easier to get to previously visited websites despite spelling errors.

This feature is now available on Chrome desktop and will roll out to mobile in the coming months.

It was one of several new and recently launched features Google touted as part of Global Accessibility Awareness Day.

Google also announced its Lookout app (which provides audio cues for low-vision users) can now provide descriptions of images on web pages "powered by an advanced visual language model developed by Google DeepMind."

Chrome on Android recently updated its TalkBack screen reader so tab switching now also offers a tab grid with additional features like tab groups, bulk tab actions and reordering.
