I agree. Beyond Braille and raised numbers, what is necessary for people
who are blind to navigate buildings? People with mobility issues or
those using chairs can't access chairs, and doorways and bathroom stalls
may be difficult to deal with if not the proper size, but there's
nothing beyond proper, accessible signage that is necessary for blind
people.
