Why does a drive up ATM have braille on the keys?

When my airline built a brand new simulator building in 1997, it had to have Braille signage and handicap access for the simulators.

That’s right. Braille and handicap access...

...to the flight simulators...used only to train pilots.

I would like to take this opportunity to assure the flying public that we have absolutely no pilots who are either blind, or confined to a wheelchair.

There's a sign on the highway near my house which says "Blind Drives"

I've driven past it every day for going on 20 years and I always somehow read it as "Blind Drivers"

Maybe there's some correlation to blind-folks' ATMs

And why do you fail a smog test if the unleaded flapper in your fill neck is missing?

Wow my city just rebuilt a whole bunch of cross walks on the busiest road in down town. They installed those talking braille cross walk button pedestals. Holy moly the road they are going to cross has 6 through lanes 1 turn lane and 2 merge lanes at every block.
How do the blind know they are going straight? It’s like 200’ or more across that bugger.

Similar to the Braille signs inside surgery rooms. Hopefully the medical staff can see what they are doing....

Everything so silly today it’s pathetic. smirk

The ATM machine interface produced for walkup is the EXACT same used in drive through. Placement is different......

It makes no sense to have a braille and non Braille interface..

Not sure really of humor involved with this one but to each their own.
