I came across this week at work: 

The CNIB Foundation will create an accessible payment terminal for Canadians with sight loss. Working with Moneris Solutions, a for-profit business specializing in retail payment terminals, a person who is blind or partially sighted will be able to independently verify its financial transactions without having to rely on others nor giving one's secure PIN.

This is probably on someone's in the IDI's radar, but a colleague was mentioning some work being done in Canada between various disability groups and industry to make an accessible point of sale, so I thought I would mention it. I don't know too many more details, but here is the advocacy / awareness-raising video shared: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11w_tkuYf08
