Methodology and Guidelines for the Evaluation of Accessibility of Public Terminal Devices by People With Visual or Hearing Disabilities: Sound, Audio, and Speech Design ConsiderationsBy Vasiliadis, T.; Angelidis, P.; Technology and Disability, Vol. 17, No. 1, pp. 11-24
Publication Date: 2005
Paper presents research findings on the acceptable levels of noise near card-reading or other terminal devices such as automatic teller machines and pay phones that are installed in public places. The authors advocate for an adequate assessment methodology to measure background noise, and to determine the point at which an acoustic shield of the machine is considered a necessity. The quantitative figures of noise levels are presented, along with the testing methodology employed during the research. Implications for further research are discussed.
