During today's Hardware teleconference I brought up that for many low vision
users the ability to read the prompts, operation touch controls for features
like number of copies, simplex/duplex, and collating, and warning messages
is very difficult because the characters are small and they lack contrast
As part of the discussion it was asked if there should be a provision in
Section 508 to address the LCD window that used to display information or
feature controls. Another question was raised regarding which subcommittee
had jurisdiction of this provision-Hardware or Web/Software.
I would propose that language be crafted that provides a minimum level of
contrast and brightness so that people with low vision would be able to
utilize products with this type of display effectively.
