Good to see. I will go ahead and publish updated PSA on Accessibility from public self-service view. ANSI just released Electric Vehicle Infrastructure regulations. The US Access Board will release their final ones in September later this year. The updated self-service, kiosks, POS, smart city, etc regulation update by US Access Board is scheduled for December 2023.  Here is link on KI https://kioskindustry.org/psa-ada-regulations-for-ev-vehicles-self-service-kiosks-kiosk-association-kma/

Web tip - On websites I recommend using a video SEO plugin (I use yoast). Recently Google began indexing all video, that has indexable structured data tags. You can check Google SEO console to see if Google succeeded (or didn't) with yours.

Replying to Michele Hill

This is awesome - thanks for sharing! I've been starting to see some updates to other drive-through chain restaurants here in the US, which helps vastly enhance the experience!

Thanks Michele. Drive-thru is 70% of sales. Takeout increasing. Indoor dining and curbside decreasing.  See latest news about Schlotzky redesign.  https://flipboard.com/@craigkiosks/mcdonald-s-kiosks-pmhete5iy -- also I published new pdf study on digital ordering on kioskindustry.org -- here is the pdf -- https://kioskindustry.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/Paytronix-Order-And-Delivery-Report-2022-compressed.pdf
