You're right, the Gnome folks need to do a better job of putting up a
highly publicized page for this.  So it was perhaps unfair of me to blame
Google if the required resource just isn't there in one place (rather in
a lot of separate places).

The assistive technology stuff does include screenreaders (text to speech)
and magnifiers; I think that setting fonts larger is in a different place.
