I encountered touch screen card machines on one of my shopping trips but, dismissed it and shopped somewhere else instead but, when I received an email regarding the experience of another person, I realized that this is going to become a problem.

Once you have finished recording the steps, it outputs each step as a screenshot and puts them in an MHT document (webpage).
Now, now, you guys, it is all ok, Microsoft is not discriminating against those of you who can’t see the screenshots: It will also include a text only description of the steps down the bottom of the page. (One less online petition for me to look at.)
To top it all off, it will also place all the contents of this recording into an archived zip file so that it can be easily emailed.
