NFB’s Anne Taylor interviews GW Micro about the Lexmark Accessibility Solution.
Touch screens can present usability and accessibility challenges for people who are blind or visually impaired, have motor skills impairment, or use wheelchairs. The Lexmark Accessibility Solution is web-based software that helps users set up copy, fax and scanning jobs from a network-connected computer or handheld device, such as an iPhone, iPad, or accessible PDA (including Voice Sense and Braille Sense).
Using their keyboard, users can access and control more than 120 settings or options that are available on the touch screen of a Lexmark multifunction printer. After the user submits the job, a simple shortcut, like #4, is provided, which the user enters on the MFP’s accessible keypad to complete the task.
Benefits of Accessibility Solution
- Text-based screens give users access to almost every setting and option available on the Lexmark MFP.
- Users can change display properties, including font size and color of foreground and background, for greater readability.
- Users can check the status of the MFP before they set up and submit a job.
