If possible, I think it should be on the same machine. When I was
working on the RII/VII, I contacted Clas Thorén, an accessibility
expert from Sweden, for advice:

Beside the technical parts we discussed, he also recommended that
one should try not treating disabled persons separately. That is,
one shouldn't be told something like "Aha, you are blind, then
you should go to the booth back in the corner there". At least in
Sweden, organizations for disabled seem to feel strongly about
getting this sort of treatment.
