We have 11 different ways to sense the world, and most of the time we will experience things in more than one way at the same time. We see and hear a concert. We smell and feel the grass. Design is very visually oriented. This stop button in a bus is a great exception: The contrasting colours make it stand out and the function is clearly stated, but it is also easy to find the button by touch and its function is also stated in Braille. Including touch is not only useful to people with impaired eyesight. Imagine standing in a crowded bus and carrying a lot of stuff, being able to feel your way to the button whilst keeping your eyes on everything that’s going on, how nice is that?
