This, is nice to have this options. Here is my thoughts. I personally thinkmy self the government should make it currency accessible to the blindpeople. I think they should make paper money in the dominations of 1$ bills,5$ bills, 10 $ bills and 20 $ bills, accessible. These are the Most commonused denomination used by most people. It does not have to be nothing fancy.Just accessible. I say accessible because there is a difference inaccessibility and usability. To me most of the change is accessible enough. I also think they should just get rid of the penny. But I am speaking from aconsumer point of view on the penny. this is just some of my thoughts.

At about a third of the cost of existing devices, the iBill offers unrivaled features, ease of use and accuracy of identification.The iBill is an exceptionally convenient and affordable solution that can beused by each and every blind or visually impaired individual. Measuring just 3 inches by 1.6 inches by 0.7 inches, the ultra-slim and compact "key-fob" design provides the ultimate in convenience, allowing it to be carried unobtrusively in a pocket, purse, clipped to the belt orattached to a keychain or lanyard. Among the features that set it apart fromother such devices are the extremely high accuracy (better than 99.9%) andthe near-instantaneous speed (less than one second in most cases) with whichit identifies banknotes. The iBill is designed with the sole purpose of providing the simplest, fastest and most accurate means to identify U.S. banknotes.Its unique ergonomic design permits easy and intuitive use without the need for any training or practice. Upon insertion of a banknote into the device, its denomination is identified at the press of a button. Based on the user'spreference, the denomination is announced by a clear and natural voice, or by tone or vibration for privacy.The unit identifies all U.S. banknotes in circulation and recognizes them inany orientation. Banknotes in poor physical condition are indicated as unidentifiable and are not misread. The unit is also upgradeable to recognize new banknote designs.
