Use these bump dots to give yourself touch assistance identifying household objects.
My choice for the best bump dots for low-vision seniors are these Red and Orange Bump Dots that come 80 to a package.
I choice these Red and Orange Bump Dots because:
- They are easy to apply
- They stay where you put them
- They are easy to remove
- They have a good feel under the fingers
- There are 80 of them in the package
- They are good contrast colors to household objects
- They come in three sizes
There are 80 bump dots in this package. There are 20 large, 30 medium and 30 small dots. The small and medium dots are red. The large dots are orange.
Put them anywhere you have a clean, flat surface.
Put them on light switches, oven dials, phone buttons, TV remotes, copiers, printers, and computer keyboards.
The difference between the red and orange is not that great. Color blind people might not tell the difference.

The Halos Washing Machine Stickers come in brown and orange, just like the microwave stickers. The raised bumps let you easily find the washing machine controls.

The MoTEX Embossing Label maker is the old fashioned type of tape printer.
The letters come out embossed onto the tape. Peel off the tape backing to expose the glue.
Stick anywhere you need to identify an object. I recommend putting at least one space between each character to give you room to differentiate them.
