No one said life is easy but some people play this game on a harder level than others. In this case, we particularly have visually impaired people in mind. Good thing there are always some good samaritans jumping in to help others. You could say this is how the world evolves but oh my, would you be wrong with that. This time, all their efforts were in vain as they seemingly didn't get the point of how any of that actually works for the visually impaired. Just take a look at these hilarious attempts to aid the blind!

You could have used hot glue and created glue bubbles on top of the printed Braille

You may not be able to read the words, but some blind people can still see the bright green and red glow. So this doesn't really belong here.

Well, if done well, the sign would be disgusting since they would read it before washing their hands.

Yeah, blind and almost blind people are really famous for being able to be really fast in the bathroom (especially in one they're not used to) and the only reason they could possibly be taking longer is if they were stalling. /sarcasm

The first dots (reverse L shape) means its a number. The other two are an E. Basically it's number E so a 5 Could indicate it's level 5

Well, still telling what it is is nice. Why should a blind child have no fun making strange figures for their seeing friends? I do not consider this a fail.

Serious question: would people who can read braille be able to read 'our' number too? I mean: this numbers are protruding from the buttons. And the numbers are larger then the braille signs. I would think these ciphers to be decipherable by touch alone for blind people. (?)

This, I think, is less about Braille as a functioning device and more about bringing awareness to how we should be considering accommodating the visually impaired in our learning, leisure, business (etc) environments?

Actually, this test works with Braille computer interface devices, and when Braille is selected by the sighted person that is setting up the tests (like they do for all students), the test software will send proper signals to the device, as well as make other accommodations to make the test accessible to the blind, including sending raised illustrations to the device, and eliminating any questions that may not translate to a blind tester. It's actually very helpful.
