  • Probably because they make them in "bulk" for cost reasons.

  • Its so a sighted person can drive a non sighted person to it and the blind person gets out to use it.

  • Maybe the blind passanger is the one with the ATM card.

    Some of the ancient people I see driving around look blind as bats- so maybe it's for them.

  • Because the ADA requires that certain ATM's be handicapped accessible. It's less expensive for the manufacturer to make one set of buttons (with the braille) than two sets.

  • LOL...because it's standard on all public keypads. I used to wonder the same thing. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) laws sometimes go beyond common sense! :o)
