RALEIGH, N.C. — The $15 billion State Employees Credit Union reports that it has converted all of its almost 1,000 ATMs across the state to talking ATMs. Its “text to speech” technology allows visually impaired users to plug into the machines with headphones to hear the transaction details and instructions that other users read on screen.
