1.5 Ensure that the device can be operated using only one hand

If a user has use of only one hand, they should still be able to operate all the functions of the terminal without requiring assistance.


"Some ATMs are on a ramp which is good but if the part next to the machine is sloping you might need one hand to prevent the wheelchair rolling so you've only got one hand left to operate the machine. " - wheelchair user

Users often have no use of one of their hands, either due to a physical disability or because they are using it to hold onto something else, such as a child, a shopping bag, a physical support or a purse containing their valuables. It should still be possible for them to use the terminal without having to let go of any of these things.
