The Visual Assistance Card
Designed by Kyle Lechtenberg

This product is designed to give the visually impaired the privacy they deserve whilst using card readers at retail checkout counters. This card overlays the existing card reader and provides the appropriate information to the user, thus preventing shared personal information, such as a PIN number, to be exchanged from the customer to the employee.

I would imagine that this is a product carried by the retail store, since card readers are not universal. Unfortunately, this concept draws attention to the disappointing flaw that many products have: their failure in accommodating a broad range of human percentiles and handicaps.
