The Ricoh accessibility mission is to be the leading provider of accessible document
imaging products. Ricoh wants to enable the workgroup office environment to maximize
their productivity through the use of accessible technology. Using software utilities
and networked solutions, Ricoh will streamline document workflow, as well as make
advanced features accessible to all.
Ricoh Corporation has engaged Georgia Tech Research Institute to assist in establishing
a higher standard of compliance with Section 508. Georgia Tech has developed an
assessment methodology to assist manufacturers and procurement officials in determining
the accessibility of Electronic and Information Technology (E&IT) products. Ricoh
believes that accessibility is equivalent to a more productive, user-friendly product.
To this end, Ricoh will inaugurate accessibility standards that help users maximize
the accessibility of office automation technology.
Additionally, for some products Ricoh has integrated accessibility into the product development process. These products are evaluated at specific phases of development using checklists with requirements based on Section 508 and other applicable standards and guidelines.
To meet the requirements under Section 508, we have established product compliance
evaluation protocol. Our evaluation is based upon the following methods:
