No, you cannot assume that any new printer you are interested in will be accessible. This is because many current printers, especially all-in-one models that include scanner, copier and fax capabilities have a display screen which requires navigating menu options to select the function you want to perform, which, in most cases, requires sighted help.

Subject: printer accessibility

It is time for me to replace my HP 3915 ink jet printer. I suspect that just about any wireless, color, stand alone printer out there will meet my modest demands for quality and speed.

My concern is accessibility. Can I assume that HP, Epson, Brother printers are accessible for routine printing purposes? Should I be warned off of something?

My screen reader is Jaws 16.

Thanks for your help.
