New talking bank machines are to be installed at four more locations in Sheffield and Derbyshire to help visually impaired customers.

The Co-operative Bank, which already has 83 talking machines in Sheffield, will install the new ATMs in Gleadless, Westfield Southway, Dronfield and Hope Valley.

The machines deliver private, spoken instructions through a headset which is plugged into the machine. They have high contrast screens for partially-sighted customers.

The service will be available to Link or Visa card holders from all banks.

David Fawell, head of payments at The Co-op, said: “Installing talking ATMs in Sheffield is part of our commitment to help blind and partially-sighted customers by rolling these out more widely across the UK.” 
The move has been supported by the RNIB.
