Re: point of sale app

Here are a few things to consider. Will your students be swiping
credit/debit cards with the app? Or will they be keying in the information?
Generally, those systems which provide swiping have a card reader that
connects to the headphone jack of the phone or device. In that case,
listening to the output will not be possible. However, if you choose to key
in the data, you will not need the card reader. It is also possible to use a
braille display connected to the device to read input and output.

By all accounts and experience, the app by Square is the best option for
your needs.

Let me know if you have specific questions.

Subject: [WebAIM] point of sale app

Hi All,
here at the school the students run a bistro (10 items on the menu). We are
looking for an accessible usable point of sale app on iOS or android. Any
