well I shop online, and there isn't a bank anywhere near anywhere I want to 
go.
I dare say that it depends on how one stands as to how the argument stacks 
up, personally with the aggravation getting hold of cash for those stone age 
things that don't take modern payment methods, such as the cabs, causes me, 
the cashless society is a truly wonderful idea. you should try going through 
that sort of aggro before saying that it doesn't have any validity.

Hi Simon

No, not at all.  I go shopping, so the bank is close by if I want it.  Your
argument to have a cashless society doesn't stack up, and I doubt it will
happen during my lifetime either.  I just prefer to look at the problems
others have with these things, then it puts everything into perspective!

Kind regards,

Importance: High

which if you then have to fork out extra for a cab to go and get it, then
mess around cuing to see someone at a bank to get it, in my view, rather
nullifies the discount that you have had to go through all of that expense
and inconvenience for.

Hi Jo

Me too.  I'm not obsessive about cash and carrying loads of it about, but if
I knew I was going to the pub with people, or out for a meal, I sure as hell
would want enough on me to be able to pay.

Another instance is when you can be charged less for an item if you pay
cash.  For example, someone might do work perfectly legitimately for you at
home, but they would give you something off it for cash-in-hand.

Kind regards,

I must say I do like to have some cash on me.  Some cab drivers don't take
cards and who wants to use a card for a drink in a pub?

Hi Jackie,

What an old-fashioned notion, cash. <Big Smile>.

Seriously, I can't wait to get rid of cash, it's the least secure method of
carrying money.

I carry less and less of it about nowadays, I love Android Pay.

All the best

Steve

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

Not practical

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

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

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
