I would agree and that is why reading Braille is so useful.

That being said, the hot points I have seen had both a temperature dial and 
a program dial, with some having a spin dial.

Personally I have little need to ever use more than 2 or 3 programs and I 
would think that would be the same for many washer users.  It may therefore 
not be necessary to have the Braille right by the machine if you really 
can't get it.

You could even go through the manual and braille a short 2 page document 
giving the order of the programs in terms of how many clicks round they are.

Hi Graham,

As you say, audio is a must for those who can not read Braille due to
problems of loss of sensitivity in their fingers.

 however after writing the message to which you replied I made some
telephone calls and it turns out that Hotpoint have had manuals produced in
Braille by the RNIB, but I am not certain if they have had a manual for our
particular machine produced in that format.

I take your point about .PDF format, however this would be as useless as CD
if, as carol does, you want the ability to read the manual as you are
operating the machine.  If you want to do that, you would need, a Braille
book you could place on the worktop above the machine would you not agree?
