Australian Payments Network (AusPayNet) has announced the release of Guidelines for Accessibility in PIN Entry on Touchscreen Terminals.

The guidelines are designed to make it easier for people living with vision and/or motor impairments to make transactions on point-of-sale (POS) touchscreens, being the first in the world to address access to POS touchscreen technology for people living with disability.

 The Guidelines include five principles:

             Embed accessibility into payment projects;

             Make equity and inclusion fundamental;

             Overlay security and privacy as critical factors;

             Consider the end-to-end user experience;

             Work to facilitate accessibility capability and awareness.
