Abstract

Computer printers can be made more useful to vision-impaired users by offering Braille labels on those components which are used to identify function and cartridges, either in original shipping boxes or after removal from shipping boxes. To illustrate the concept, FIGS. 1-3 show shipping boxes containing ink jet cartridges; cartridges removed from shipping boxes and control panel for a printer.
