Amphibia / Schriftentwurf / 2006
“Amphibia” is a font, meant to be read from both blind and seeing people. Although (at least for the seeing people) it seems not very usefull for body text, the concept is still worth mentioning, since the type combines both usual letters with Braille Dots. Similar approaches are at least conceivalbe for e.g. guidance systems.
