Abstract. This paper deals with the topic of providing assistance for the use of e-business terminals in public places (kiosks), such as banking machines (ATM), ticket selling machines and alike. A special emphasis in our research has been put on such methods that enable people with special needs - often summarized as the "disabled" - to use the addressed services. However, we do not limit ourselves to any specific user group - since additional assistance is valuable also for the non-disabled majority. In the approach presented here central problems like separation of application logic and presentation, communication and user interface management have been solved by means of eXtensible Markup Language (XML [1]) technologies. Our work is currently supported by the project EMBASSI [2], which is co-funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
