Accessibility Speech Solution
Audio feedback gives visually impaired users greater freedom in operating Lexmark devices.
Traditionally, printers and MFPs have only displayed the status of the device on the operator panel. For a user with a visual impairment, these messages may be difficult or impossible to read. These messages typically display information related to low toner levels, missing paper trays and other conditions that require a user or administrator to intervene.
With the Lexmark Accessibility Speech solution, the device will play a recorded audio file related to that same condition. The user simply presses the * and 0 keys in sequence, and then hears the audio message via the on-board speaker. Default messages have been created by Lexmark, and can be fully customized for each user if desired.

- Messages can be set according to user familiarity level, which indicates how familiar they are with using and maintaining the device.
