Just been to our ATM to withdraw some more readies (a free withdrawal courtesy of Nationwide) and I noticed an ear phone socket; compete with the headphone sign above it mounted into the cash point dispenser.
This can only be for one of two reasons:
(a) An aid for the blind to be given oral instruction on how to use the cash point machine
(b) To provide background/piped "muzac" to ensure your transaction is as comfortable as possible.
I suspect it may be the former but what puzzles me then is how would a blind customer know the ear/headphone socket exists...?
