According to the post from Google today Docs, Sheets and Slides are all becoming much more accessible within the Google ecosystem.

This release includes new features, improvements include real-time spell-checking in documents, hiding rows and columns in spreadsheets, and grouping shapes in presentations.

People with vision disabilities can use screen-reading services like TalkBack on Android and VoiceOver on iOS to create, edit, and share files in Docs, Sheets and Slides.

The updated apps also respond well to screen magnification, in case you need to zoom in for a closer look.

All of the updates are available from the App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google-docs/id842842640) now for the iOS versions of Docs, Slides, and Sheets.
