How Blind People Can Easily Use ATMsThe U.S. has over 100,000 ATMs that are accessible to the blind and visually impaired, plus many more internationally. This is required by law - the ADA to be specific. There are two primary ways to use the accessibility features of these ATMs:
- Voice: You can listen to voice commands by using your own headphones or ones provided by the bank. The ATM can recognize your voice commands as well.
- Braille or raised keys: The buttons om the ATM have Braille and/or are raised for easy access. For example, the #5 key is raised so the user can easily use the rest of the number keypad.
