I have a card-holder which not only protects the cards from being scanned by
fraudsters but it has slots into which I place the cards in order. But I
only have three credit cards so I guess this method wouldn't work so well if
you had several cards.

Clive/all,
To help identify different cards, of which I have too many, I do use very
small cuts from Braille transparent label sheets sold by RNIB to indicate,
for example, by HX that it's my Halifax card.  I just stick them in a corner
of the side of the label which has the raised numbers, and take care to miss
the chip square and no one bats an eyelid - or at least not one I've seen!

Here here Richard. I memorise my debit card details and only use the
portable biological reading device occasionally to check that I am about to
put the correct card into an ATM or chip and pin machine. (smile) My
response was, I confess tongue-in-cheek, or rather out of it.

Best,
Clive

I have found 3 and 4 work very well. Their cost is also minimal.

Yes, Clive, I understand that, and if that's all it is, then surely the
solution is pretty simple:
1. Assuming we're dealing with a PC user, then why not write the particulars
in a file and read them back when required; or 2. Record them on one of the
many portable devices available; or 3. If a Braillist use Braille; or 4.
have some memory training!

Hi Richard,

If you are paying for anything over the phone, you will be asked to say the
sixteen-digit number on the card, the expiry date, and sometimes but not
always, the three-digit security number on the back of the card. If you've
forgotten the long number, and there's no sighted person around, you might
need to read it out somehow. This is rather sad though. I have a portable
device I use for reading the long, raised number on my visa card if I need
to. It's called...a tongue!

Best,
Clive

What exactly is the situation in which you need to know the numbers?

Hi All,

I know this is a bit of a longshot but is there such a portable device as
something that would read the numbers from say a Visa/debit card, master
card etc?. 


Thanks for any help on this.

Paul.
