What’s the different between a standard PINsentry card reader and an accessible one?

The accessible PINsentry card reader is larger than the standard device. It has a larger screen to display the prompts and digits and the buttons on the keypad are also larger to help you select these with more ease. There is a speaker which tells you the next steps and also a headphone slot for you to connect your wired headphone to help hear the prompts clearly if you are in a noisy area. You can control the volume using a scroll button on the side of the device.
