Have SIMcard activation code printed in braille

By: oldyorkie | 19-10-2013 14:44

In light of the discussion opened up by stevie_sg in relation to disabilities, I propose that the Simcard activation code be imprinted in braille to assist those visually impaired.

Braille is not only used by the totally blind, but also those who suffer from partial blindness or other sight issues.

 

It seems common sense to me to have the number printed as it is now (though darker font would be better :smileytongue:) and in braille.

 

A similar point was raised by mwhapples way back in March 2012 that is up for "Future Review", but that concerns sending the activation code via email so that it can be read by screenreaders.

 

This is suggesting having the ability to "see" it direct from the card or a section of the packaging having the activation code embossed in braille on a tear off section (this bit added thanks to brulaw - as it would seem an easier solution to print on paper / card rather than plastic :smileyhappy: ) - Thankyou Bruce!!!

 

Second (and last) edit - there will be no more :smileyhappy:

As a result of cim's input and thoughts, the additional text is now added: Thankyou cim :smileyhappy:
Not sure the logistics or costs of this but perhaps a braille printed label or insert could be added on request when a SIM is sent out - and maybe printed in larger characters at the same time for both OCR and increased legibility for those with vision impairment

 

Thanks for reading, and hopefully any support offered for this will go a long way to improving Member Experience, which is the aim of Stevie's thread :smileyhappy:

Yes, like it being by request, don't think it needs to be on every SIM
