       Braille keypads on drive-up ATMs is novel enough.

       What about a braille "Wet Paint" sign?

       How about "If you can read this, you're too close" in braille?

       And surely we can say what we like. Its not as if any blind people are reading this...

       Braille isn't just for blind people. Ideal for reading in the dark.

       bliss'n'all: But isn't this as much a blind joke against the sighted. At the very least it's a joke that only those that can read braille will get.

       I don't think this is offensive to blind people at all. either; it's just a self-referential joke translated into an unusual and very suitable medium.   

       [mcscotland] "It's not as if blind people are reading this." The web is mostly text. Just think how much easier this is as a source of information to a blind reader of braille with a braille terminal than printed books and newspapers. Where would you hang out?   

       That being said, I haven't met anyone who reads the halfbakery in braille, but it's very possible; the hard- and software exists, and I've met people who used it to e.g. play muds and read their e-mail.

       jutta - I can't remember which idea thread it was, but one 'baker did comment that he was blind. This was sometime in the last week.
