Abstract

Team Lexmark designed interfaces that enable users with disabilities or impairments to engage effectively with next-generation Lexmark workstations. The team learned how users interact with multi-function printer-copier devices and developed ways to make the functionality of these devices more accessible and usable.

Their research focused on the contexts in which impaired users interact with devices. Team members engaged with users who had accessibility concerns and attempted to understand their needs in the workplace. The team developed an interface that provides a comfortable user experience.
