This sign is at the offices of the Revenue Commissioners in Cork.
I took the photograph earlier this week and since then I have failed to come up with any reason for inclusion of the words ‘BRAILLE SECTION’. I did an image search on ‘Braille Signs’ and could find any with the words ‘BRAILLE SECTION’.
If someone cannot read ‘POST’ they will most likely be unable to read the smaller printed ‘BRAILLE SECTION’. If someone can read the word ‘POST’, they do not need to read ‘BRAILLE SECTION’.
If a blind person is accompanied by a fully-sighted person, will the fully-sighted person say aloud the message on the sign or would he tell the blind person as to the location of the BRAILLE SECTION so the blind person can read himself. This latter option is the only reason for the words ‘BRAILLE SECTION’ that I can imagine.
