A fully accessible standalone device is one where all users can operate the controls and all users can perceive the output.
The Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Standards include ten standards specific to self-contained, closed products. These standards provide guidance on how standalone devices can be made accessible to the broadest possible range of users.
If information kiosks are developed internally, all parties involved should be aware of these accessibility standards and of techniques for how to comply with them.
If information kiosks are purchased from outside vendors, these vendors should be asked about the accessibility of their products, including their compliance with the standards.
