E la Carte, Inc., creators of the PrestoPrime™ EMV System™ for full-service restaurants, and Applebee’s® Neighborhood Grill + Bar, announced today a partnership with the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) and LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired of San Francisco to produce a text-to-speech capability for the PrestoPrime EMV System that will be incorporated into all current and future Presto tablets, including those used in Applebee’s Grill + Bar restaurants nationwide.
