Mastercard introduces accessible card design for visually impaired

Mastercard has delivered a new design standard using a series of notches on the side of the card to help visually impaired people distinguish between credit, debit, or prepaid cards.

While Mastercard most cards are distributed with large letters with no names or numbers attached, Mastercard’s Touch Card provides a useful tool for people with disabilities to know which card they are holding.

Developed by Idemia, the new Holding Credit Card with the rounded logo; bank cards with a square chest, and prepaid cards with three.

“The Touch Card will provide a sense of security, integration, and independence to 2.2 billion people worldwide with access issues,” said Raja Rajamannar, a high-volume sales, and office interviewer. “For the blind, getting a credit card is a real challenge. This integrated solution allows customers to order a card directly and identify the payment card they are using.

This idea was adopted by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) United Kingdom and VISI / Services for the blind and Visual Impaired in the US.
