exactly, I like to carry as little as possible, plus find actually getting 
it out a pane in the behind, so would not be an option for me.

Hi Jackie,

A good solution for some, but not everyone feels comfortable with the idea
of toting wads of dosh around them. So this would work for some, but the
reservations of others need to be respected too. As I say though, the
seller, not the buyer should ideally be putting the work-rounds in place.

Best,
Clive

Or, better still, why not take some cash?

Iain,

That is correct, the speech is silenced, audible clicks are still there and
the screen curtain provides privacy.

That turns speech off but leaves VoiceOver still running. The screen Curtain
is a function of VoiceOver.

Hi,

Don't know how easy this would be, sometimes I turn voice over off
with a double triple tap, this keeps screen curtain on and you can
press the buttons if you listen for the "clicks" working from the
bottom up you can go up the center; 0 8 5 2 and locate the side
numbers too. I know it isn't a perfect option, just trying to get a
work-around meantime.

Not practical

For example, on older touch screen devices, you could use ordinary
headphones.
On more recent ones, they have a bespoke connector

Hi,

Would it be an idea to keep a set of earphones handy and ensure the
screen curtain is on when entering details?

Kindest,

Mike

This is an issue I came across some time ago in a local take out.  I
told them the problems, and gave them advice.  we came to an
arrangement about payment with an app the shop used, they refunded me
the standing charge for the app if I used that to place order, as the
app
was accessible.

Hello all,



First, please excuse the cross-posting. I apologise in advance,
especially to those who may receive this message three times, once per
list. However, I and a number of others feel this is an important
enough
issue to warrant it.





It has come to the attention of members of another list, that some
restaurants and shops are no longer offering chip and PIN machines
when the time comes to pay the bill. Instead, people are being
presented with an IPad belonging to the service provider organisation,
and are expected to type their PIN in on a silent, flat touchscreen.
In one case reported, the customer felt they had no alternative but to
divulge their PIN number to a member of staff. I've seen this in my
mobile phone service provider outlet in town. Has anyone here ever
been embarrassed or frustrated when given an inaccessible piece of
technology through which to make their payments? The people on the
other
list (New College Worcester Former Students'
Association) would like to get an idea of the scale of this problem,
and suggestions as to how it could be resolved, so that they can bring
the issue into the light and campaign for change. Yes, I know that
IPads are accessible, but you wouldn't want to turn voiceover on, on
someone else's IPad in an open plan restaurant, and have it announce
your personal details to the world at large as you type. At my Phone
Supplier shop, they suggested turning speech on and playing my input
back through the shop's Public Address system!



Best,

Clive
