A self-service transaction terminal

Research output: Patent

Abstract

A self-service transaction terminal (2) has a user interface (6), the surface of a portion (18) of which is textured. Variation in the texture of the surface of said portion (18) forms a guide to guide a user towards an element (8) of the interface (6). The interface also includes additional elements (10,14,16) which the user may require in order to operate the ATM (2). Portions of the surface of the user interface (6) adjacent each of the additional elements (10,14,16) are also textured so as to form guide means to guide a user to each of the additional elements (10,14,16). The user interface (6) also incorporates an audio means (20) arranged to inform the user when he should move from one of the elements of the user interface to another. Thus the difficulty faced by visually impaired or blind people attempting to operate the self-service transaction terminal (2) is alleviated.
