Dimensions of Accessible Design

The key to providing accessible technology solutions is understanding the cognitive, perceptual, and physical imitations of users with disabilities.

NCR applies scientifically grounded knowledge to achieve design excellence for accessible technology solutions.


Accessible Design Has Many Dimensions

Design for Colorblind

Physical Access/

Hardware Design

Non-Visual Design

Design for Cognitive Limitations


Addressing Sensory-Motor Limitations with Assistive Technologies

  • A collaborative effort with industry experts led and

  • managed by NCR as an advanced development program

  • Accessible technology integration (hardware & software)

    • Touch screen

    • Hardware buttons for navigating without touch screen

    • Text to speech generation

    • High contrast color combinations

    • Text equivalents of audio

  • Usable by persons with

    • Mobility disabilities

    • Prosthetic limbs

    • Hearing disabilities

    • Visual impairments

Museum Exhibit Kiosk

  • Set market expectations for accessible kiosks and user interface technologies for education and information applications


Understanding Low Vision and Color Deficient Disabilities Technologies

Proprietary color design tool is based on recent empirical research, extensive knowledge of visual perception, and display engineering.

  • Enables NCR to choose colors and fonts that achieve aesthetic goals while promoting legibility for colorblind, low vision, and unimpaired users


Understanding Technologiesthe Non-visual User Interface

Alt tags for graphical elements and proper text arrangement allow

users to hear visually displayed information through text-to-speech tools

Results in application solutions that work

for both blind and visually unimpaired users


Understanding TechnologiesCognitive Disabilities

Keep application user interface simple to prevent cognitive

overload and to make visual feedback obvious to the user.

Avoid blink rates that can trigger seizures.

  • Increases ease of learning and use for all users.
