(c.2.i) If the product utilizes touch screens or contact-sensitive controls, are controls and keys operable with one hand and do not require tight grasping, pinching, or twisting of the wrist?


              
  
(c.2.ii) If product uses touch screens or contact-sensitive controls, is force required to activate controls and keys 5 lbs. (22.2 N) maximum?


              
   (c3) If key repeat is supported, the delay before repeat shall be adjustable to at least 2 seconds.  Key repeat rate shall be adjustable to 2 seconds per character.


(c.3.i) If product uses touch screens or contact-sensitive controls, and key-repeat is supported, is the delay before repeat adjustable to at least 2 seconds?


              
  
(c.3.ii) If product uses touch screens or contact-sensitive controls, and key-repeat is supported, is repeat rate adjustable to 2 seconds per character?


              
   (c4) The status of all locking or toggle controls or keys shall be visually discernible, and discernible either through touch or sound.

              
  
(c.4) If product uses touch screens or contact-sensitive controls, is status of all locking or toggle controls or keys visually discernible, and discernible either through touch or sound?


              
4 Redundancy for biometric identification or controls

(d) When biometric forms of user identification or control are used, an alternative form of identification or activation, which does not require the user to possess particular biological characteristics, shall also be provided.

If biometric forms of user identification or control are used, is an alternative form of identification or activation, which does not require the user to possess particular biological characteristics, provided?

              
5 Providing auditory output

(e) When products provide auditory output, the audio signal shall be provided at a standard signal level through an industry standard connector that will allow for private listening.  The product must provide the ability to interrupt, pause, and restart the audio at anytime.


(e.i) If products provide auditory output, is the audio signal provided at a standard signal level through an industry standard connector that will allow for private listening?


              
  
(e.i) If products provide auditory output, is the audio signal provided at a standard signal level through an industry standard connector that will allow for private listening?


              
6 Mandatory volume control & reset

(f): When products deliver voice output in a public area, incremental volume control shall be provided with output amplification up to a level of at least 65 dB.  Where the ambient noise level of the environment is above 45 dB, a volume gain of at least 20 dB above the ambient level shall be user selectable.  A function shall be provided to automatically reset the volume to the default level after every use.


(f.i) If the product delivers voice output in a public area, is incremental volume control provided with output amplification up to a level of at least 65 dB?


              
  
(f.ii) If the product delivers voice output in a public area, and the ambient noise level of the environment is above 45 dB, is a volume gain of at least 20 dB above the ambient level user selectable?

(j.1) If the product is freestanding, non-portable, and intended to be used in one location, and has operable controls, is the position of any operable control (determined with respect to a vertical plane, which is 48 inches in length, centered on the operable control, and at the maximum protrusion of the product) within the 48 inch length?


              
   Height of proximal controls

2. Where any operable control is 10 inches or less behind the reference plane, the height shall be 54 inches maximum and 15 inches minimum above the floor.
