Xerox Copier Assistant Software is Assistive Technology for Copying Functions of Xerox Multifunction Printers and Copiers

Xerox Copier Assistant

With Xerox Copier Assistant software, your employees – and the public – have easier access to the copying capabilities of Xerox copiers and multifunction printers. This assistive technology is an alternative to the standard touchscreen. Xerox Copier Assistant software helps everyone – especially people who are wheelchair users, blind or visually impaired – to easily program copy jobs and make copies.

Key Features

  • Improves accessibility to copying features
  • Enlarged on-screen user interface provides an alternative to the standard touchscreen user interface
  • Simplifies copying jobs with easy-to-use, easy-to-program features
  • Embedded text-to-speech software talks the user through the copying steps, including advanced tasks such as stapling, collating and two-sided copying, as well as indicating when doors are left open or if a paper tray is empty (available in English and French)
Providing employees and customers with disabilities access to multifunction devices can be crucial to the bottom line of any business.

Key Challenges

  • Lost productivity when users with disabilities cannot perform the copy functions they need to do their jobs
  • Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 2005 for employers and everyone who provides a service to the public
  • Lost revenue and/or dissatisfied customers due to inability to provide copy services to those with disabilities
Xerox Copier Assistant software increases user productivity by leveraging features such as an enlarged on-screen user interface, embedded text-to-speech software, and keyboard navigation buttons including tab, arrow and function keys. Currently, no other manufacturer of digital copiers provides an alternative to the touchscreen user interface for walk-up copy jobs on as many models.
