Why isn't paper money blind-friendly?

Asked by jaytkay (25767points) September 18th, 2010

With your eyes closed, all US paper money feels the same.

Why aren’t there tactile indicators of the value?
Do any other countries have blind-friendly paper money?
How do blind people handle everyday money handling?

Maybe notched money would work. I used to work with 4×5inch sheet film, and it was notched so you could identify the film in the darkroom.
