HALOS Clear Tactile Microwave Stickers
Item #: 461115
These clear tactile self-adhesive stickers are shaped to identify the function of various buttons on your microwave oven
These stickers are designed so that Blind or visually impaired individuals can feel the most regularly used buttons on their appliances. For example: the
start icon is a triangle shape, stop/cancel is an X shape, defrost is a water droplet shape, and power level is a stair step shape.
HALOS stands for Home Appliance Labeling and Overlay System. It is a system of shapes that represent different appliance controls such as start and stop.
These tactile icon stickers adhere to your touch surface appliances so you can identify the location AND function of the buttons by touch.

I posted a question on the product page of the microwave that I am interested in. A customer replied saying that the membrane is flat. However, I will phone Amazon’s Disability number tomorrow morning and double check. And, maybe they will find what I need.
Now, I have a new query. What options are available for marking a smooth touchpad? I would rather pay for a quality product that will stay on the touchpad than buy something that will just make a sticky mess.
Do any of you have any suggestions?
