Cafe Menu access - the screens

Can I ask these cafe menu screens- are they making lives difficult?

I struggle often, I order in the app in-store so I get what I want if it’s hard to say. Can I ask is this something that’s a problem or is it just me. As I think more thought needs looking into this as getting a large print menu takes time. As virtually all cafes use them now. Can scope look into a way disabled can use them without having to press a button for assistance if needed?

I think a national solution needs to be thought off for those who can’t use a camera to read the menu. Paper is best, but with constant changes it’s expensive. It would help a lot if these screens weren’t allowed but is this something scope working on?

    This sounds super important @john_taylor. I don't know about every food place but I know in my local Mcdonald's there are a range of ways to order - through the app, QR code, screen or asking. 

    To be sure, you would have to check with each food place though, at least until a national solution is found. Hopefully, this is something that will improve and become more national as time goes by  :)
