Both the headphones and keypad are provided. To assure the privacy of the voter, the voting unit's screen is blank while the audio ballot feature is being used.

A magnified ballot is provided for voters who have low vision.

An adjustable screen is available to accommodate voters who prefer or need to sit while voting.
