Touch and Go
Have you noticed how all new appliances seem to have touch screens? Or totally flat buttons? My electric cooking plate has them , and I do find them fabulous, s easy to clean! But it did occur to me that all this touch screen stuff is no good for those amongst us who don't see too well. Since the arrival of the iPhone, touch screens seem to have become the new standard; many other new phones have no more buttons. It's all touch and slide and choose and what have you. But there is something to be said for good old fashioned buttons people with vision impairments can feel.
