Banknote design for the visually impaired
AbstractThe visually impaired are divided in three subgroups: colour-blind, partially sighted and blind people. Their first needs are useful denomination features rather than security features, as they help them in determining a banknote’s value. This study provides a historical overview of banknote design features for the visually impaired, especially as applied in the former Dutch guilder notes. Furthermore, it looks into the methodology of banknotes tests for the colour-blind, showing images of how the colour-blind experience the euro banknotes.
