Apps Begin to Give Blind Access to Touch Screens

“If an app developer can sell you an app for less than $20 that will tell you the price, description, ingredients and cooking instructions of any item in your supermarket, how can that same supermarket tell you they can’t come up with something that would tell you how much you’re being charged for it at checkout?” asks Simeone. “The ATM in your store talks; why can’t your point-of sale-device talk? If sighted people had no idea what they were being charged when they checked out, there would be outrage.”
