Accessibility / Section 508 Compliance

An Equal Playing Field for Everyone

Everybody deserves an equal opportunity to perform the work they want to perform and be as productive as they desire. Konica Minolta’s products are designed for everyone, no matter their disability, according to all state and federal regulations.

Konica Minolta’s Commitment to Workplace Accessibility

The ideals of Section 508 are designed into all Konica Minolta office machines in the workplace. Konica Minolta engineers are dedicated to providing state of the art imaging technologies to everyone in the office regardless of their physical capabilities. As a result of this commitment to ADA printing, Konica Minolta MFPs contain numerous functions and features that provide an easy and friendly user interface and operation for individuals with disabilities.

Enhanced operational functionality includes: front-loading paper trays, adjustable display contrasts, enlarged displays, tilt enabled control panels, extra large buttons, convenient heights and reach, and easily accessible printer interiors for adding toner and replacing imaging cartridges.

Our goal: Make Our Products Truly User Friendly for Everyone

Konica Minolta has a Universal Design Committee dedicated to accessible printing. The group is composed of members from each discrete R&D Division as well as the Design Division.

In addition, Konica Minolta staffs Universal Design Workgroups (LCD Panel Workgroup, Options Workgroup, Applications etc.) within the Universal Design Committee to focus on accessibility of each function and to assure a constant specification across the product line.

Konica Minolta has a total of 28 evaluators, representing a diverse cross-section of disabilities who evaluate our products to make sure that the multi function printer meets their ADA accessibility requirements.

During the evaluation process, if the product specification does not meet with their approval (in the middle of the design process), the target product does not move onto the Product Design stage. In addition, if the evaluation does not pass after final evaluation, the product will not be launched. Therefore, our customers can be assured that by the time our product comes to market, it will meet the Section 508 accessibility requirements for all users.
