The universal design we, at Canon, strive to achieve is designing products that everyone, regardless of their abilities, can use comfortably. We work toward universal design by anticipating the many different situational issues customers may encounter while using our products and devising as many solutions to these issues as possible.
Since our founding, at Canon we have been dedicated to the development of technology that helps improve and enrich people's lives.
Our ideals are solidified under Canon's corporate philosophy of kyosei, which we define as: “All people, regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future."
Our customer base has become increasingly diverse in recent years, as aging populations become a social issue in many countries and as even young children master the use of smart devices with the advancement of IT technology.
The universal design concept, which seeks ease of use for people of all abilities, fits perfectly with our kyosei philosophy
