I might be aging myself here but I always remember that Reese’s commercial “There’s no wrong way to eat a Reese’s”. This is how I feel about marking appliances to assist individuals who are blind or have low vision. As long as you get the person’s feedback and the buttons they need are marked, its the right way.
You can use different products to mark buttons on microwaves, stoves, ovens, dishwashers, washing machines, dryers, and more. Markings can be from things you have around the house such as finger nail polish, velcro, puff paint to items you buy from specialty stores such as bump dots, touch dots, and locator dots. Below are pictures of a microwave and oven that have been marked with bump dots.
If you have questions about having appliances marked, where to get bump dots, or anything else related to living with vision loss give me a call, 785-528-3105.
