scope:

Different users of information technology products possess different sets of abilities. Some abilities may not ever be present in a user as they may have been born without them. Some abilities are acquired, developed or deteriorate over time due to education, maturity, injury, illness or age. Just as it is possible that a user possesses a combination of abilities, it is also possible that they may lack a combination of abilities.

This Technical Report presents icons and symbols currently used to provide access to facilities and tools to support the needs of elderly and disabled users of information technology (IT) products, and could form the basis of a future International Standard which would provide a recommended collection of icons and symbols.

These icons and symbols have been collected from a variety of sources including other standards, contemporary software products, web sites and hardware devices.

These sources are cross-referenced and listed in the Bibliography. The icons and symbols presented here are categorized by modality and method of use.

NOTE 1 ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical Commission) do not in any way endorse, recommend or dissuade the use of any of the icons and symbols presented in this Technical Report.

NOTE 2 The icon and symbol designs reproduced in this Technical Report remain the property of the source owners and may not be directly copied into IT products without the permission of the source owners.
