A V-com is an advanced ATM in 7-Eleven retail outlets across the United States and 7-Eleven agreed in the settlement that they would all have audio output to allow independent use by blind customers. This was the first agreement in the country in which a non-bank retailer agreed to make ATMs accessible.
