Voice-Guided ATMs Installed

PITTSFIELD, Mass.-Greylock Federal Credit Union is upgrading its ATM fleet to give the machines both physical access and communication-related elements for the visually impaired and those who have mobility handicaps.

The text-to-speech technology will allow Greylock members to plug in their headphones and listen to step-by-step instructions for conducting transactions privately.

Greylock said the new voice-guidance software will go live when the credit union's ATM service provider begins support of the new technology later this year.
