    The two articles from the OP are from Newsweek & The Washington Post.

    I wasn't aware those media sources were operating out of your basement.

    A drive-up ATM doesn't require that you literally drive up to it. I mean -- think about it.

    Fine, but how does a blind person find the ATM in the first place?

    Same way they find anything else.

    I dig trick questions.

    A better question might be, how does a blind person know one bill from another when they're all the same size.

    Don't forget, if a bank is located next to a housing area, there may be blind people who walk to the ATM for cash.

    But.................the more likely reason is that those machines are mass produced. And, separating machines that are going to be used by sighted only people from machines accessible to both is more expensive than just making them all the same. Retooling for buttons costs money.
