Self-Service Association ADA Initiative
[October 11, 2017]

Self-Service Association ADA Initiative


EASTLAKE, Colo., Oct. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kiosk Industry Group Association has formed an ADA committee and an ADA working group.  And in November travel to Washington, DC to meet with the U.S. Access Board, the group responsible for writing ADA regulations.  The idea is to work with the Access Board on an ongoing basis to help them better define regulations.  We are also working with the ATMIA (www.atmia.com) as well and the ETA (www.electran.org) in this regard. Participation in the working group is open to all interested parties.

The ADA committee currently consists of Olea KiosksKiosk Information SystemsFrank Mayer and AssociatesKioWare, Turnkey Kiosks and iPadKIosks.

At the same time this month the featured in-depth article is on ADA , the Final Rule, current government actions and relevant liability actions. 

Excerpt: 

Some of the biggest challenges self-service transaction machine deployers face is the degree of interpretation that must be applied to some of the regulations.  How many accessible unts and what level of accessibility constitutes acceptable access?  Another is new regulations and retrofitting existing units, said Craig Keefner, manager for Olea Kiosks.

"Complicating retrofits can be the issue of recertifying for UL," Keefner said. "One change to the overall machine can require the new configuration to be re-certified. If someone like Walmart has to change all of its self-checkouts, that's a big change."
