Richard,

Doesn't this need to be dealt with at a national level by RNIB 
and their legal team? I think it's that important!

Kind regards,

Paul

Terry, if you don't take active steps to deal with this kind of
discrimination, then the problem will probably grow.  I know it's 
probably
easy for a retired lawyer to take that stance, but I wonder what 
Trading
Standards would have to say about it?

Hi all,

Our local hardware shop acquired one of these some time ago.  I 
told them I
could no longer do business with them and now look for whatever I 
want on
CPC and Amazon.

They did say they'd sort it out, but I remain to be convinced.

Cheers,

Terry

Hi,

Yes, I too came across one of these devices during a flight in 
October 2015.

Extremely annoying.

Best wishes
    Phil

hello all,
well, last night when I was out, came across an inaccessible chip 
& pin
machine, really not good news!
it was a touch screen version, had no buttons, and no speech, so 
completely
unusable for a blind person.
as someone who virtually all of the time relies on being able to 
pay by card
whilst out places, I really hope these are not going to start 
being the
norm.

Simon
