Description

In your country, are accessible ATMs (cash dispensing machines) readily available to all persons with disabilities?
“Accessibility of ATMs”: ATM (Automatic Teller Machine) with audio-based functions, at a convenient height or other accessible design features, as the ones for people with cognitive or learning disability; also mobile devices’ applications that make ATM functions accessible to people with disabilities. If “Yes” or “Yes, with qualifications” please refer to the specific percentage of the accessible ATMs that are available.

Relates to Convention Article:

  • No.9, Accessibility

In detail

Article 9 of the CRPD prescribes that in order “to enable persons with disabilities to live independently and participate fully in all aspects of life, States Parties shall take appropriate measures to ensure to persons with disabilities access, on an equal basis with others, to the physical environment…and to other facilities and services open or provided to the public, both in urban and in rural areas”.

As some experts highlight, the key issue is the number of the accessible ATMs, so the question also asks for the specific percentage of accessible ATMs that are available.
