Leumi Accessible ATM Machines
|Support for the Visually Impaired|
|Voice Instructions and Information||
Most Leumi branches across the country now comprise ATMs which are equipped with a uniquely advanced audio system specifically intended for aiding the visually impaired. The system is the first of its kind in Israel and is based on the TTS (Text-to-Speech) voice engine, which transfers text to speech in real time.
Unlike older systems, which offered pre-recorded instructions and interface menus, the new system 'reads' all the information presented on the screen, including the specific, up-to-the-minute account details requested by the customer. Voice instructions allow for a longer response time for account transactions, as required.
Accessible ATMs are fitted with a standard earphone jack for use of the specialized audio system.
|User Interface||The ATM user interface has been updated to current accessibility standards, offering a clearer display with the required contrast levels.|
|Adjustable Brightness/Contrast||Customers can adjust the ATM screen's brightness, based on the surrounding light levels, so that the text can be brighter at midday, and less so in the evening.|
|Adapted Keypad||The ATM's keypad is designed in accordance with international accessibility standards with symbols that allow the visually impaired to recognize the keys.|
|Banknote Layout||Banknotes issuing from the ATM are arranged in such a way as to make them easily identifiable by the visually impaired.|
|STEPHERE||Most of the ATM devices are equipped with signage and voice instructions.|
|Braille Labels and Signage||The bank card slot and banknote withdrawal slot have been labeled with Braille stickers.|
