Abstract

IEC 63008:2020 contains accessibility requirements to enable more accessible use of certain elements found on household and similar electrical appliances by older persons and persons with disabilities. It provides guidance to achieve accessible design of only control elements (e.g. knobs, buttons), including control panels, display screens and doors, lids, drawers and handles. It does not enable the full assessment of the overall accessibility of a household appliance. This document covers supporting and auxiliary functions that a user performs regularly. Assembly, installation, configuration or repair of appliances are excluded.
This document provides test methods and data that support accessible design.
This document gives guidance to apply ISO/TR 22441:2008 and ISO/IEC Guide 71:2014 to the design of various interactive elements of household and similar electrical appliances. It does not deal with remote controls, or control via network or mobile applications. Touch control elements are covered in this document, but new interaction controls, such as gestures and speech control, are not covered.
This document does not deal with safety issues.
