    Default blind leading the blind

    Loving this

    An airport has been accused of taking political correctness too far, after advertising for a new air traffic controller in Braille.

    All air traffic controllers have to meet international standards and pass a medical, including a stringent eye test.

    However, the move was applauded by Bill Alker, from the Royal National Institute for the Blind.

    "We welcome the Isles of Scilly's Council for their good practice and would hope more employers do the same," he said.

    I do wish they had asked my gf's sister who is manager of a hotel for the Royal Blind Society. She would have given a proper quote.

    I think it is on Scilly...

    The advertisement states that applicants must have excellent vision in order to guide aircraft safely into the hilltop airport, which is often fogbound.

    Exactly - All you'd need is a giant horizontal pin cushion with miniature magnets lifting the "pixel pins" to form a tactile pattern. Colour might be a problem though.
