Individuals with varying levels of abilities can interact with many Lexmark smart MFPs and printers in a convenient and effective way using the Lexmark Voice Guidance. With this feature, users can hear voice guidance prompts through the smart MFP or printer’s built-in speakers or a user-provided headset. When activated, Voice Guidance gives select Lexmark smart MFPs and e-Task printers additional functionality specified in the US Section 508 Refresh and European standard EN 301549.
With Lexmark’s innovative software, devices with touch screens are no longer limiting to users with impairments. The optional Lexmark Accessibility Solution is our web-based software that allows users to initiate copy, fax, email and scan jobs directly from their computer, tablet or mobile device as an alternative to the MFP touch screen. Lexmark Accessibility Solution is designed to work with a wide range of assistive technology, including screen magnifiers and screen readers, allowing customers with varying levels of abilities to work independently. At the MFP, the user only needs to interact with the tactilely discernible numerical keypad to complete the task at hand.
The optional Lexmark Accessibility Speech Solution complements the Lexmark Accessibility Solution by providing audio feedback messages played over the printer’s speaker to easily communicate status to the user.
