    Default How do blind people...?

    Dont ask why but last night when sitting drinking it came up; how do blind people know where the Braille signs for them are? Like we all know that's how blind people read signs etc, but how do they know the signs are there to feel the Braille in the first place? :confused: (Serious question btw)

    I guess they're consistently in the same positions, whether it's on a door or zebra crossing etc.

    I'd guess it's usually all at a certain level - say, the level where your hands would be for a person of average size putting their hands out in front of them.

    As they feel their way around with their hands quite a bit, they'd have the best chance of picking up any Braille signs that way.

    EDIT - Just saw Biffy's post there, and he's more or less said the same thing as me, so aye - must be right then.

    They probably just become extremely used to relying on feeling around for things and almost develop a skill of guessing where something is. I've often wondered this too Andy btw lol

    I knew somebody would come up with some sort of sexual reference. Seriously, can a girl not talk about "feeling around for things" without people jumping to conclusions?!

    you know the red bumpy bits that are on the pavement in front of all traffic lights? thats for blind people, so they know where the lights are, and if you feel underneath the box that you push for the lights, you will feel a bit of plastic about an inch long sticking out the underside of it, and when the lights change to the green man, the plastic bit turns so they know when to walk


    Cheers Cashy!!!

    The traffic lights on Cathcart Road are quite fucked up. See the box you press the button on when waiting to cross road, hit the top off it and the lights instantly go from Green to Red.

    They have sonar so they just whine loudly, and the soundwaves vibrate threw the area and rebounds of the various things and then they can like see the sound making the images and stuff so they know where it is.

    Think DareDevil.
