Verifone Introduces Verifone Navigator an Accessible Payment Feature for Persons with Visual Impairment

October 22, 2018

Verifone introduced Navigator, a PCI-compliant full touchscreen feature for blind and visually impaired that enables merchants to transform the non-tactile touchscreen into a universal keypad with audio confirmation. It allows visually-impaired consumers to enter a PIN or other numerical data to easily make purchases.

The company said this is the first-of-its-kind payment feature with a fully integrated touchscreen to earn certification for accessibility and usability by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), a UK-based charity. Navigator meets PCI requirements, an information security standard mandated and administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council to reduce credit card fraud.

Navigator is PCI PTS 5.x approved and will initially be available throughout North America and Brazil. The first-of-its-kind software is available now on Verifone’s Carbon 10, a countertop or portable point-of-sale device that features merchant and customer facing tablets for optimal business management and customer interaction.
