Device helps the blind identify rupee notes
July 9, 2016
The Tiffy Template is an innovation that helps the visually impaired identify rupee notes of different denominations.
The idea was the brainchild of Kerala-based Tiffany Brar who is blind and wanted to find a way that the visually impaired could avoid getting cheated in financial deals.
Her friends developed a plate with holes that was as small as a credit card and called it the Tiffy Template.
By folding and placing currency notes on the device, any blind person can make out the difference between notes. The steps in the template indicate the length of the notes and there is a small notch on the side to measure width.
There are also Braille inscriptions that make it easier to identify different rupee notes.Making the device costs just Rs 2 per piece. The template will soon be available for free across India.
