Talking ATMs are coming your way. Lawyers at Oakland’s Saperstein, Goldstein, Demchak & Baller, and Berkeley lawyer Elaine Feingold helped the California Council of the Blind to push banks to install talking automated teller machines. Wells Fargo Bank and Citibank have agreed to test run machines in Los Angeles, the Bay Area and San Diego. Remarkably, no lawsuits were necessary to convince the banks to give talking ATMs a try. “The banks should really be applauded for agreeing to sit down and talk with us,” said Linda Dardarian, a Saperstein partner. In Pennsylvania, meanwhile, PNC Bank Corp. and Mellon Bank are being sued under the ADA for not being so cooperative.
