Kiosk

The more modern definition of kiosk refers to public terminals that offer anything from internet access to travel information to ATM services. Electronic kiosks require a simple user interface and rugged hardware. Touchscreens enable a user to enter and display information without the need for a mouse or keyboard. Alternative input methods must be considered, however, for those who can’t use touchscreens, such as people with physical disabilities.
