Creating Equity at Xerox with Accessibility: Human-centered designs

At Xerox, we believe that an equal and inclusive society is for all of us, and we continuously improve and reflect that in our designs. The Act of Equity integrates the needs of people with the possibilities technology offers – making it accessible, unbiased in both processes and products, and of course, providing equal attainable outcomes to all.

Adhering to the American Disability Act (ADA), Section 508 compliance for equitable access to technology and communication, and EU (EU301 549) are at the center of our business simply because its the right thing to do.

At Xerox, our business goals include the design of equitable user experience, driving human-centered design.

Assistive Technology at Xerox

The first step in determining a product’s potential to meet the needs of disabled people is a thorough diagnosis of the suite of tasks required to use that product. From loading documents into a printer to filling paper trays, setting job properties of a print job on a user interface to emailing a scanned copy, Xerox product development teams are consistently working to improve access requirements for Xerox® Products.
