Coffee for the blind / Coffee container

Coffee for the blind
Coffee for the blind

I would like to talk about a difficulty for the blind to use a current take-out coffee cup at coffee shops. We usually put a cap on the container to keep coffee warm and prevent a spilt. However, the blind might have a problem to find the position of the drinking hole on a cap. The action that the blind fumble for the hole is unsanitary and inconvenient. I would like to suggest that we put braille around the hole on a cap so that the blind can find where to put their lips on to drink hot coffee. The blind can make sure where the hole is through feeling the braille under the hole with their fingers as they always do.
