Summary of New 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act ATM Standards
Wondering when the local ATM machine would finally accomodate your needs? There is good news for you!
On July 26, 2010, on the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Department of Justice announced rules updating the ADA standards governing the construction and alteration of facilities, including places of public accommodation, commercial facilities and state and local government facilities.
The new standards adopt guidelines established by the Access Board, an independent federal agency that develops and maintains design criteria to ensure access for people with disabilities.
New standards include new technical specifications for speech output guidance, keypad controls, display screens and Braille instructions for impaired consumers.
