Posted on October 1, 2009

This is a press release about Talking ATMs. The first Talking ATM was installed in 1999. Blind people worked with banks and the companies that make ATMs on this issue. Members of the American Council of the Blind worked with many banks using Structured Negotiations instead of filing lawsuits. The banks with the most Talking ATMs are Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and Chase Bank.
The press release below announces the tenth anniversary of the first Talking ATM in the United States. As a result of extensive advocacy by the blind community and industry effort, it is estimated that there are now close to 100,000 Talking ATMs in the U.S. and around the world.
The Law Office of Lainey Feingold extends its appreciation to Wells Fargo for its statement below in recognition of the 10 year Talking ATM anniversary, and to all those individuals, organizations, and institutions in both the blind community and the financial industry who have, and continue, to work with and trust the Structured Negotiations process to help advance accessible technology.
