Hey Kyle.  I had the same problem when I started using a debbit card a
couple years ago.  All you have to do is hand your card to the
casheer, and tell that person that you want the perchase taken as
credit.  Someone on this list may be able to explain why this works,
but I know that it does.  The casheer will then take your card, scan
it for you, and should show you where to sign if necessary.
Sometimes(especially if you are with your mom or another sighted
person) the casheer expects that person to do it for you.  But if you
want that casheer to do it, just tell them to take your card as credit
and to put it through the machine for you because you are blind.  Most
are very helpful though, so you may not have to deal with this much.
