There was a lady on this morning a little while ago, who was blind and wore makeup. Her boyfriend and dog accompanied her, and the way she used to wear her makeup, she would label her makeup with a blind pen which is sold from the RNIB shop, for £75. The labelling is speech affected and she would label up her eyeliner, her mascara and lipstick whatever colour they were. She wasn’t fully blind, she could see light or dark.
Another name for the labeller pen is audio pen. I think the labelling audio pen would be useful for CDs and other filing items that blind people find difficult, like daisy disks, which blind people get their books on.
