100 ‘Talking ATMs’ for visually impaired from UBI


Union Bank of India (UBI) plans to open nearly 100 “talking ATMs” for visually impaired customers across the country in 2012-13, Mr D. Sarkar, Chairman and Managing Director, said here on Monday. So far, UBI has four such ATMs – in Mumbai, Lucknow and Gujarat — and their usefulness has prompted the bank to increase the number.
In a talking ATM operated by a visually challenged person, the ATM’s monitor screen remains blank. The customer is provided with a headphone to listen to the instructions and follow them accordingly.
