2010 By-elections – Photos – Assistive Voting Device
The assistive voting device will be most useful to voters who:
- have visual impairments
- have a disability or condition that limits their dexterity
The device has several accessibility features: an easy-to-read screen; a tactile controller with Braille buttons; a sip-and-puff attachment that allows voters to select options using their breath; rocker paddles; an audio track so that voters can hear instructions and candidates' names through headphones; and an audio and/or visual review function for voters to confirm their choice of candidate before printing the ballot.
