2155 How do the blind tell the difference between different paper money of US, and other countries and do any use Braille?

In the US all bills are exactly alike as far as thickness, size, etc. New bills are being printed that have large numbers and high contrast for those with some usable vision, but there is no way to tell the bills apart by touch. In the US you would need someone else's assistance to determine the different bills and then develop a method of keeping them.

In the UK and Australia, different notes are different widths and lengths but it's something you have to learn, or you can use a gadget called a note gauge to measure them.

In Canada they are rolling-out a new paper currency that embosses a select number of Braille cells for each denomination.
