I’m awake, and trying to burn out so I can go back to sleep. So here I am.
Last week, I talked about the new talking feature on the TD bank machines. Well, my number of beefs with them has gone down from 3 to 1. I figured out how to adjust the volume, and you don’t have to enter the decimal point. My only beef now is it doesn’t seem to speak the select a language prompt. But that’s the only prompt it doesn’t speak. So maybe when I send a thank you letter to whoever’s responsible for these machines, I can recommend some braille be fastened to each machine that says which button to push for each language, if they don’t want to tweak the speaking features. I found more cool features, though, so I have more things to rave about than rage about. The machine will even give you an audio orientation to the machine, tell you where your card goes, your money comes out, and where the receipt is printed. It even says please remove your cash when it comes out. You can change where the navigational keys are positioned. They’ve pretty much thought of everything, so I’m damn happy. After all my, and likely some other blinks’ pissing and moaning to tellers, TD now has a machine that’s pretty damn close to perfect!
