TUKAN | Access

The TUKAN machines, which can be found at various locations on campus I and II, can also be used by wheelchair users via the trackball on the right-hand side of the keyboard. This allows a mouse pointer to be moved and directed to the fields on the screen. All fields on the screen can be controlled and triggered with the mouse buttons over the trackball. See image 1 und image 2.

EC card reader, TUNIKA reader and receipt dispenser are located in the lower part of the device and are easily accessible.
