Blind Car Drivers?

Winston fired this volley in news:

Why not? Drive-up ATMs have Braille keyboards.

"Approximately ten percent of those deemed legally blind, by any measure, have no vision. The rest have some vision, from light perception alone to relatively good acuity."

If I were a caregiver for a partially sighted person, it'd be convenient to have them use the ATM from the driver side passenger seat. The Braille would be a good 'parallel information path'.

I can 'see' that. :)

Have you seen traffic tickets, issued in braille? That's, next, probably.

That's because they use the same keypad in walkup ATMs. It reduces the inventory needed for service work, and the chances of being out of a Braille keypad when needed. I used to work next door to a Diebold service center, and talked to their techs when I was on break. They have guaranteed response & repair times in their contracts with banks and all of their other equipment. That is why most repairs are done at the assmbly level, rather than the component level. I used to get dozens of two year old gel cells for free from other bank equipment repair people that were replaced before they had a chance to fail.
