[Koha] Koha software based self-check

I hooked up a touchscreen when I got to work and can now report that it does work fine. There are drawbacks though - the buttons are too small to:

1)     work well with the low precision on a typical touchscreen monitor

2)     communicate the fact that the screen used is actually a touchscreen. Large buttons seem to work better in communicating touchscreen capability – regardless of it´s actual presence (or not).

On the bright side is the fact that both these problems can be solved by changing the font-size value in the CSS to something like 230% instead of the original 93%. The relevant file is sco.css. It´s not quite as pretty as a tailor made touchscreen design could be but it works well.

Best regards/Viktor Sarge

I'm planning to use a cheap touchscreen - would that work as well as the simple interface implies?

I see no reason why this would not work. We have tossed around the idea of a touch screen also.

Kind Regards,
