Regulatory agencies have a profound effect on the business of self-service. The kiosk industry group monitors ADA and the development & implementation of regulatory bodies and, where possible, we participate in the regulatory process by educating and informing agencies regarding our members & businesses.

A primary source of ADA devices for accessibility is Storm Interface. They also make rugged keyboards and other input devices.

Consulting member firms to help guide you thru the often complex laws include Assistra Technology which provides EZ-Access solution consulting.

Tips for ADA Compliance

The Department of Justice has launched a new Accessible Technology section for, its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Web site, to further assist covered entities and people with disabilities to understand how the ADA applies to certain technologies, such as Web sites, electronic book readers, online courses, and point-of-sale devices.  Covered entities have longstanding obligations to make their programs, goods, services, and activities accessible—including those they provide online or via other technology.  The new Web pages compile in one place the Department’s technical assistance and guidance about accessible technology, as well as information about the Department’s accessible technology enforcement efforts, regulation development, and other federal accessible technology resources and initiatives.
