Greetings everyone. I am pleased to share this very important service review with you.
The topic here is self service check outs at supermarkets.
Instead of being a benefit to me, I find that self-service check outs at supermarkets are a great challenge and a roadblock to my being able to shop independently as a blind woman.
In short, it is impossible for me to use a self check out unless I have sighted assistance and then there goes my right to privacy and independence.
I am unable to use them because they have touch screens for you to input your purchases and as a vision impaired person I literally cannot input my information via a touch screen.
In addition, there is no voice output to give me the total of my purchases.
The only voice output comes when this device tells you to insert your cash but it does not tell you how much to input.
I find this to be insulting and a slap in the face to blind peeople everywhere.
So what to do?
Developers should consider how this is affecting those who cannot use a touch screen and supermarkets should consider how this is affecting their shoppers.
