Make Your Self-Service Kiosks Accessible

Posted by Kim Piff on Mar 8, 2021 2:12:06 PM

Over the last few years, self-service kiosks have revolutionised the way consumers interact with brands and organisations. Kiosks are an increasingly popular way to access a range of services. Many people use them to skip the queues when purchasing train tickets or to check in at airports. We’re getting used to using them to order fast food, check medical appointments, or when banking and catalogue shopping.

Self-service kiosks provide simple, effective access to services that benefit businesses and consumers alike. Businesses are able to provide a faster service and reduce staffing costs while customers experience reduced waiting times and often experience higher levels of customer satisfaction.

Most customers are able to benefit from the convenience your kiosks provide. But have you considered customers who are not able to see your kiosk screens? In this blog we explore everything you need to know about making your self-service kiosks accessible to people who are blind or partially sighted.

Smartphones changed the way we work and live—Connect & Learn for education does that for students and schools!

Posted by Mary Jo Barry on Aug 27, 2020 3:33:50 PM

As an educator working with students who are visually impaired, you’re on the forefront of technology, you’re probably what the world views as an “early adopter.” But do you remember your very first smartphone? Do you remember holding that beautiful, probably expensive, piece of technology in your hot little hands? You explored with amazement all of the things you could do—get your email, surf the net, load your music and go to a place you’ve never driven without printing pages and pages of Mapquest directions. It was ALL in there, everything you needed and things you didn’t even know you needed but as it turns out, you did. And if that wasn’t enough, you could walk around with that fantastic, tiny, all-around tech solution in your pocket or purse. It changed your life, and with each new inventive app that’s released, probably continues to do that today. That’s the kind of pivotal technology your students need, and that’s what they get with Connect & Learn.
