Hello,

I had a great deal of trouble trying to find an HP printer that could reliably connect to Wi-Fi.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Accessible scanner drivers

After reading all the replies, I decided to try HP - I bought
printer+scanner HP 8035 - one of the top models on Amazon. They offer to
install this tool called HP Smart to configure your device.
Unfortunately this tool seems to be not accessible - I tried with NVDA and Jaws. Most buttons are not marked, most list elements cannot be read by either screenreader. It seems like the state of accessibility hasn't changed much since 5 years ago. Now I'd have to ask someone sighted to configure it. Maybe in the end I should've tried Canon - more people have recommended it, but in the last moment I changed my mind and switched to HP because customer ratings for Canon products were low on Amazon....

Hello all,
I am looking to buy a new scanner as my old one just died. However
I've heard that scanner drivers from many manufacturers tend to be not
very accessible. Can anyone recommend me which scanner (or
scanner+printer) comes with accessible driver/accompanying software?
Thanks!
Tony
