4 Accessibility
HP's goal is to design, produce, and market products, services, and information that everyone everywhere can
use, either on a stand-alone basis or with appropriate third-party assistive technology (AT) devices or
applications.
HP and accessibility
Because HP works to weave diversity, inclusion, and work/life into the fabric of the company, it is reflected in
everything HP does. HP strives to create an inclusive environment focused on connecting people to the power
of technology throughout the world.
Finding the technology tools you need
Technology can unleash your human potential. Assistive technology removes barriers and helps you create
independence at home, at work, and in the community. Assistive technology helps increase, maintain, and
improve the functional capabilities of electronic and information technology.
For more information, see Finding the best assistive technology on page 7.
The HP commitment
HP is committed to providing products and services that are accessible for people with disabilities. This
commitment supports the company's diversity objectives and helps ensure that the benefits of technology
are available to all.
The HP accessibility goal is to design, produce, and market products and services that can be effectively used
by everyone, including people with disabilities, either on a stand-alone basis or with appropriate assistive
devices.
To achieve that goal, this Accessibility Policy establishes seven key objectives to guide HP actions. All HP
managers and employees are expected to support these objectives and their implementation in accordance
with their roles and responsibilities:
● Raise the level of awareness of accessibility issues within HP, and provide employees with the training
they need to design, produce, market, and deliver accessible products and services.
● Develop accessibility guidelines for products and services, and hold product development groups
accountable for implementing these guidelines where competitively, technically, and economically
feasible.
● Involve people with disabilities in the development of accessibility guidelines and in the design and
testing of products and services.
● Document accessibility features, and make information about HP products and services publicly
available in an accessible form.
● Establish relationships with leading assistive technology and solution providers.
● Support internal and external research and development that improves assistive technology relevant to
HP products and services.
● Support and contribute to industry standards and guidelines for accessibility.

International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP)
IAAP is a not-for-profit association focused on advancing the accessibility profession through networking,
education, and certification. The objective is to help accessibility professionals develop and advance their
careers and to better enable organizations to integrate accessibility into their products and infrastructure.
As a founding member, HP joined to participate with other organizations to advance the field of accessibility.
This commitment supports HP’s accessibility goal of designing, producing, and marketing products and
services that people with disabilities can effectively use.
IAAP will make the profession strong by globally connecting individuals, students, and organizations to learn
from one another. If you are interested in learning more, go to http://www.accessibilityassociation.org to join
the online community, sign up for newsletters, and learn about membership options.
Finding the best assistive technology
Everyone, including people with disabilities or age-related limitations, should be able to communicate,
express themselves, and connect with the world using technology. HP is committed to increasing accessibility
awareness within HP and with our customers and partners.
Whether it’s large fonts that are easy on the eyes, voice recognition that lets you give your hands a rest, or
any other assistive technology to help with your specific situation—a variety of assistive technologies make
HP products easier to use. How do you choose?
Assessing your needs
Technology can unleash your potential. Assistive technology removes barriers and helps you create
independence at home, at work, and in the community. Assistive technology (AT) helps increase, maintain,
and improve the functional capabilities of electronic and information technology.
You can choose from many AT products. Your AT assessment should allow you to evaluate several products,
answer your questions, and facilitate your selection of the best solution for your situation. You will find that
professionals qualified to do AT assessments come from many fields, including those licensed or certified in
physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language pathology, and other areas of expertise. Others,
while not certified or licensed, can also provide evaluation information. You will want to ask about the
individual's experience, expertise, and fees to determine if they are appropriate for your needs.

Standards and legislation
Countries worldwide are enacting regulations to improve access to products and services for persons with
disabilities. These regulations are historically applicable to telecommunications products and services, PCs
and printers with certain communications and video playback features, their associated user documentation,
and their customer support.
Standards
The US Access Board created Section 508 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) standards to address
access to information and communication technology (ICT) for people with physical, sensory, or cognitive
disabilities.
The standards contain technical criteria specific to various types of technologies, as well as performance-
based requirements which focus on functional capabilities of covered products. Specific criteria cover
software applications and operating systems, web-based information and applications, computers,
telecommunications products, video and multimedia, and self-contained closed products.
Mandate 376 – EN 301 549
The European Union created the EN 301 549 standard within Mandate 376 as an online toolkit for public
procurement of ICT products. The standard specifies the accessibility requirements applicable to ICT products
and services, with a description of the test procedures and evaluation methodology for each requirement.
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) from the W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) helps web
designers and developers create sites that better meet the needs of people with disabilities or age-related
limitations.
WCAG advances accessibility across the full range of web content (text, images, audio, and video) and web
applications. WCAG can be precisely tested, is easy to understand and use, and allows web developers
flexibility for innovation. WCAG 2.0 has also been approved as ISO/IEC 40500:2012.
WCAG specifically addresses barriers to accessing the web experienced by people with visual, auditory,
physical, cognitive, and neurological disabilities, and by older web users with accessibility needs. WCAG 2.0
provides characteristics of accessible content:
● Perceivable (for instance, by addressing text alternatives for images, captions for audio, adaptability of
presentation, and color contrast)
● Operable (by addressing keyboard access, color contrast, timing of input, seizure avoidance, and
navigability)

● Understandable (by addressing readability, predictability, and input assistance)
● Robust (for instance, by addressing compatibility with assistive technologies)
