PaperCut offers various accessibility options for users with limited vision or mobility based on WAI guidelines. The options are listed below:
User web interface
The PaperCut development team have made a number of changes to the end-user web interface (and the admin interface in parts) to work towards WAI guidelines. The development team welcomes feedback on the “real world” usability of the interface.
Full-screen release station
The PaperCut software based release station is a full-screen application and hence does not play well with Windows based screen reading software such as MAGic with speech. As an interim solution, the development team has supplied a Java version of the release station software that leverages the features in the Sun Java Accessibility Kit. This functionality can be implemented using the following procedure (compatible with any release post version 7.0).
Securely releasing a print job on a device is usually done by selecting jobs from the Print Release screen.
For those with limited vision or mobility, PaperCut offers the ability to automatically release print jobs on devices for particular users.
This user-level option is available to override device auto-release settings. It is configurable via User, Group and Bulk User Actions pages. (i.e. Users → [Name of the user] → Advanced Options → Override printer/device-level settings)
A user can then login to a device and bypass the print release screen, releasing the print jobs automatically. This functionality is available for a device set up as a release station supporting print release.
PaperCut is committed to considering accessibility enhancements and usability throughout the development of the PaperCut suite of applications and components. This is an ongoing process based on published standards and feedback from our customer base. Customers interested in our adherence to the Voluntary Product Assessment Template (VPAT) standards are welcome to download our assessment.
This release contains an updated Java version which no longer supports 32-bit workstations. If you have any 32-bit users launching the User Client or Release Station from a network share, see this Knowledge Base article for more information.
