Braille is a part of the everyday’s culture that often doesn’t get people’s attention because they are so prevalent at the same time not useful for sighted population. Have you ever seen visually impaired or blind people reading a braille under any sign? It is a technology that enables visually impaired or blind people to communicate with the world, at the same time, it is being used in a way that visually impaired or blind people would never come across it unless someone takes their hand to the braille under the sign.

Then why people put braille under every sign? Is emergency sign any use for visually impaired or blind people if they couldn’t get any information from it? what motivated sighted people to place braille under every sign? how could we improve the accessibility issue of braille under sign?
