CUNA E-guide covers ADA guidelines for ATMs
WASHINGTON (8/16/10)—The ATM machines provided by credit unions and other financial institutions will be required to be usable by individuals that are blind or have low vision under changes to the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) reports. ATMs must also have modifications that allow them to serve the needs of deaf or hard of hearing members, as well as members that are wheelchair bound, according to the DOJ. Specifically, at least one ATM at a given location must be provided to ensure compliance with Section 707 of the ADA. The adapted ATMs must also be able to provide a member with all the functionality of a conventional ATM. ATMs that are installed on the outside and inside of a given credit union would be considered separate locations, according to CUNA. For additional details, follow the resource link to access CUNA’s e-Guide.
