SHARE Wells Fargo & Co. sets up 58 ‘talking ATM’ machines

Wells Fargo & Co. announced this week that its "talking ATM" machines are up and running at 58 locations across Utah.

Through voice instruction, the new ATMs (Automated Teller Machines) instruct vision-impaired users how to deposit money, withdraw cash, transfer funds and buy stamps. Customers also may use the machines to hear balances for primary checking, savings and market rate accounts.

The ATMs deliver information via private audio jacks and earphones to protect privacy and security.

Customers may find the nearest talking ATM by calling 1-800-869-3557 or by visiting the bank's Web site, www.wellsfargo.com. More talking ATMs will be installed statewide throughout 2002.
