Visually Impaired Consumers & Payment Terminals

Update on Ingenico Accessibility Options

Video link on LinkedIn of Ingenico’s strategy for visually impaired consumers for payment terminals without a physical pin pad.   Basically Ingenico is developing a plastic grid overlay that could be put on the terminal that could be used with text-to-speech prompts.  The plastic grid overlay could be handed out by the retailer to consumers upon request that corresponds to the virtual keypad displayed allowing visually impaired consumers to use a virtual keyboard with text-to-speech prompts through the speaker.   This has been done this for our SELF Series, Self-Service devices.  The SELF Series can support an external kiosk speaker that provides the audio prompts.

To learn more send an email to

Grid for Self Series — What is it

  • Plastic Grid
  • For Self/2000 or Self/5000
  • Easy to put on the screen
  • Stays in place during transaction
  • Easy to remover
  • Already supported in SDK

Also Ingenico’s higher-end retail Pin Pads all have an Audio Jack port where consumer headphones could be plugged in for the visually impaired to be orally guided through the prompts via headphones.  Ingenico supports text to speech on our applications where the consumer is guided through the screen prompts orally.

New biometric authenticating cards are making their way to consumers. This obviously would be great for visual impaired people as they would no longer need to enter a PIN number. The card does a thumbprint read. See here: — Here is the PDF on “Biometric System-on-Card” by ST.  For more information on POS solutions like this we recommend contacting David or Rob at UCP Inc.

POS and PCI DSS Compliance – Opinion

POS and PCI DSS Requirements

We recently did an article on Grocery Stores, Self-Checkout and Accessibility. We also echoed this article on LinkedIn.

Here is additional viewpoint on the complex issue.

I have been covering recent new articles on accessibility and supermarkets.

I like POS devices, however, there are two classes of them (according to PCI SSC). One is your usual attended Verifone/Ingenico which barely supports audio but provides nice graphics. The second is the OEM mount which is CAT-certified (Cardholder Activated Terminal). It costs a bit more than its more common tabletop counterpart.  In previous years the installation and servicing of OEM CAT terminals had the PCI requirement that it be done under the principles of split knowledge and dual control in order to commission the devices into service. This carried an increased cost in both tools and labor. The PCI-SSC removed this criterion in PCI-PTS Version 5, which is the specification that governs credit card payment hardware.

If unattended the OEM is supposed to be used. Typically unattended and unassisted.  Think of Mcdonald’s kiosks mounted on the wall facing airport passenger traffic.

McDonalds Airport Kiosk

VISA and Mastercard are supposed to impose penalties for use of attended terminals in unattended mode, but, the big boys negotiate liability mitigation conditions allowing them to use a single device enterprise-wide (including unassisted/unattended). In the eyes of the PCI Security Standards Council, which is made up of industry professionals from participating companies such as Visa and MasterCard, there are only attended and unattended terminals. However, some large retailers have successfully lobbied their credit card processor to allow for the use of attended devices on self-service kiosks. In these instances the processors have given conditional approval based on the understanding that an agent of the merchant who is responsible for the health and security of the kiosks be present and available to assist users. They coined this gray area “semi-attended.”

I should probably check in with RNIB and see if they have made any progress on “Pin on Glass”. Pin is a much bigger deal for UK.  It gets complicated quickly as you can’t just call out the digits security code depressed. RNIB has been struggling with this for years to no avail. New biometric authenticating cards are making their way to consumers. This obviously would be great for visual impaired people as they would no longer need to enter a PIN number. The card does a thumbprint read. See here: — Here is the PDF on “Biometric System-on-Card” by ST.  For more information on POS solutions like this we recommend contacting David or Rob at UCP Inc.

Normally PIN is entered via the pin pad POS device for reasons of PCI. PIN numbers should only ever be entered into a PCI-PTS-approved payment terminal. The PTS stands for PIN Transaction Security.

In 2021 the Ingenicos incorporated polyphonic into POS devices (rather than just a beep). Better describing or narrating the type of transaction either POS device or via API to touchscreen (think supermarket checkout and cashback) would be step in the right direction.

Meanwhile, QSRs/etc get to ignore regulations on the one hand with a device that is the key/crucial 2-part equation in tandem with a touchscreen/application.

They all like to push that nonsense into the convenient deflection bucket of “well, kiosks are essentially unregulated and manufacturers don’t include accessibility”. Fact is supermarket checkouts are only “kiosks” in some figurative/functional sense. They are NOT kiosks made by kiosk manufacturers. Much easier to pick on them than cross up big potential client like Walmart or Kroger.

Fact is Walmart/Aldi/Tesco/Kroger are fine-tuning their hybrid “customer-facing” POS systems for maximum speed of transaction, lowest cost, and relegating accessibility litigation to the “cost of doing business” accounting column.

And don’t forget that debit cards in the U.S. are still the dominant credit card, and also least likely to include the contactless capability.

If those writers really wanted to finger the offenders in supermarkets, they should start with the Walmarts/Tescos/Aldi/Krogers of the world and include “enablers” such as NCR and Toshiba.

Accessibility Advocates Are Missing The Bus

Another problem is that accessibility advocates tend to spend all their energy on websites and informational browsing.  That relates to WCAG and W3C and while important, it should not swallow up all the oxygen.  Making it easier for the disabled to pay for things is going to increase those metrics and major corporations care about information, but they care a lot more about revenue.

US Access Board Comments

For more information on NCR’s stance you might want to read their ATBCB-2022-0004-0054_attachment_1-NCR-compressed to U.S. Access Board ANPRM in November 2022.  Another point of view is by American Banking Association ATBCB-2022-0004-0060_attachment_1-ABA which seems to discourage any improvements in accessibility.

Point Of Sale Market Report – 2022

POS Market Report

Press release — This week, released its 2022 POS Survey Report. The survey asked over 800 independent restaurant owners to rate and comment on their POS systems’ installation and operational costs, system and contract characteristics, and their satisfaction with POS features and support.

Editors Note – more information from Toast here — Recent release of Q3 Trends Report and Industry Survey

POS Suppliers

Click for full size – POS Suppliers

A lot has changed since the POS Survey was last conducted in 2017. Here are some key takeaways from this year’s survey:

  • The ten most popular brands account for over three quarters of the market. Toast and Square were the most popular POS brands, a significant shift from 2017 when Aloha and Micros were the industry leaders.
  • POS system upfront costs have fallen more than 30% since 2017, as today’s restaurateurs are spending an average of only $9,289 to get up and running with their systems. On the other hand, monthly fees have increased by 274% to $379 on average over that same period.
  • The growth in monthly subscriptions is due in part to flexibility in contract length in exchange for limitations on credit card processing. Almost half of those surveyed said they are locked into using their system’s credit card processor.
  • 61% of respondents report that they use one or more handheld devices in their operations compared with only 27% five years ago.
  • Many survey takers say that they do not use many of their POS’s features because they are hard to implement or operators lack the time and support to get the necessary training.
  • Respondents are disappointed by the support they receive from their providers. In the 2017 survey, 84% of respondents were satisfied with vendor support but in the most recent survey, that proportion dropped to 69%. One restaurateur told us: “The phone support is terrible. You wait on hold for an hour to speak with someone who is learning the system. Super frustrating all around.”
  • Challenges like these are driving about 30% of those surveyed to consider switching their POS provider within the next year.
  • Additional data from Toast — We recently came out with our Q3 Trends Report and Industry SurveyThey provide some valuable data.

The 2022 POS Survey provides valuable insights for those restaurateurs looking for a new POS system or wanting to make a change. POS providers will find that the survey gives them a wealth of data and straight-from-the-user comments that can help them improve their systems and services as well as attract new customers.

Wendy’s POS System Case Study

In the self-service world, the employee is an absolute critical component for success.  Equipping employees with reliable and training them to easy-to-use

panasonic connect

technology becomes extremely important.  Here is a POS case study provided by Panasonic. It’s worth noting that all of these stations are Intel-based workstations. You can email for more information.


In 2009, Chris Lane, VP of Operations of BASEC Management, a Wendy’s franchisee, and his wife, Emily, purchased several restaurants from her parents. As a five-year Chair of Wendy’s Technology Advisory Council (WTAC) and Secretary/Treasurer of Wendy’s Franchise Association (WFA) for three years, Mr. Lane has been determined to offer only the best Wendy’s experience to his customers and employees.

From the beginning, The Lanes established that their core goals were to continue the family’s legacy of serving the community and building generational opportunities. They knew that in order to be successful and expand to additional units, they had to provide outstanding food quality, exceptional customer service and facilitate streamlined operations among their teams. When he began the initial restaurant operations, Mr. Lane was pleased with Panasonic Connect’s rugged durability in its JS7500 POS workstations. While this hardware was a workhorse of its time, reporting was manual, and everything had to be put into a spreadsheet due to the embedded software architecture. Mr. Lane knew that a software upgrade was necessary in order to expand the business.

The Challenge

Wendy’s Franchisee Chris Lane was unable to attain sufficient data, manual reporting was necessary, and systems were not integrated with his original JS7500 POS workstations. He was looking for a next-gen software solution and needed a software-agnostic hardware platform that would last for years to come.

The Solution

Mr. Lane installed Panasonic Connect’s answer to a modern, conversational, touch-screen POS system, the JS950. It was easy to maintain and due to the open architecture, it gave him the opportunity to deploy his new POS Software to collect valuable data, while seamlessly integrating with any HRIS systems. He later upgraded to the JS960 and JS970 terminals in 2015, which provided even more flexibility, and durability. In addition, he has added four new Stingray4 JS980s to his newest location.

The Results

After upgrading his software and installing the JS950 workstations in 2009, there has been an overall 52% business growth. Since transitioning to JS960 and JS970 in 2015, they have grown their business by 27%.

In 2015, Mr. Lane upgraded most of his terminals to JS970s. These workstations have had a tremendous impact on his team, with almost no down time. In fact, he’s only had to repair or replace four terminals of the 28 purchased, averaging a 99% uptime. The touchscreens remain calibrated, which helps his team fulfill food orders, quickly and easily, and they also feature a powerful Intel processor. The rugged structure ensures reliable, non-stop operations. In addition, the four JS980s that he purchased for his newest restaurant allow even more component flexibility.

It is the intent of this document to outline a general description of the Project, the extent of services required, and the relationship of this Project to other work, and the agencies or other parties that will interact with the Service Provider. The contents of this document are considered representative of the Project as a whole but are by no means conclusive.

The potential Service Provider should have the platform and capability to address Target Center’s current needs as well as for future fundamental and technological growth within Food and Beverage (F&B). The selected Service Provider will be tasked with providing a versatile technology solution that has all-inclusive capabilities across each component of a first-class F&B operation including front-of-house hardware and software [e.g. transaction speed, reliability (online and offline mode), payment type flexibility], back-of-house hardware and software [e.g. database infrastructure, reporting capabilities] and integration with industry standard providers of ticketing systems, mobile apps, loyalty programs, digital menu boards, etc.

Core focus for Target Center is creating an omni-channel experience for the fans. The Service Provider must demonstrate a solution that seamlessly integrates with exclusive season ticket holder discount program (outlined below) and mobile platform with VenueNext to deliver that omni-channel experience.

Timberwolves/Lynx Wallet, Team Mobile Platform & Season Ticket Member Discount Program

The wallet is a feature within the team app that allows any fan the ability to pay for their food & beverage and retail purchases with their mobile phone. Forms of payment include a loyalty currency called ‘Court Cash’ which is issued by the team or fans can use a credit card stored within the team app wallet. POS must be able to:

  • accept app wallet payments via QR code scanning or rich checkout.
  • recognize when a fan is designated in the wallet as a member, half season member, and other segments to be determined in order to offer these groups the specific discount associated with their respective segment.
  • redeem from the wallet one-time coupons for designated items or for a one-time discount.
  • accept mobile orders for a choice of either pick-up or delivery.

The Service Provider must define and provide a POS solution that includes mobile, kiosk, and cash-free platform solutions to deliver on aforementioned omni-channel experience.

In turn, we ask you, our potential partners, to be as comprehensive and transparent as possible in filling out the RFP, both in regard to capabilities as well as pricing.


Desired Future State: The City is looking to engage with a Service Provider who can offer a comprehensive and best-in-class POS solution for both front-of-house and back-of-house operations. The scope will cover F&B operations emphasizing POS adaptability, enabling the City to pursue and integrate future advanced POS system features, leverage real-time data to increase revenues, and enhance the overall fan experience.

The City desires and intends to enable the selected Service Provider to deliver F&B operations inclusive of integrations to specific loyalty and ticketing platforms, digital menu boards and mobile applications. Across each aspect of the front-of-house and back-of-house operations, the partner will have best-in-class technology with robust capabilities while having an intuitive interface and the flexibility to solve order placement and distribution challenges that may exist within a venue with a relatively small footprint.
