A not-for-profit association has released special braille stickers to help people who are blind or have low vision to be able to find QR Codes to scan.
“We all know that QR Codes are going to be with us for a while and we all have to get used to them,” a Braille House spokesperson said.
“This is more difficult for people who are unable to see them, so how do they scan them? Until now, someone else had to help them by guiding their hand with their phone in it to scan the code.”
Braille House’s tactile indicator is a sticker that is placed over the QR Code that reads “Please scan the QR code below” and has a tactile square to indicate where the QR Code is.
The stickers can be ordered for $3.30 online (free postage)
