According to an article on Amalawi dated 10 July 2012, the Reserve Bank of Malawi will revise its new family of notes (issued on 23 May 2012) so that they are more "blind friendly." According to the Malawi Union of the Blind, the current notes have raised dots to aid in recognition of the denominations, but the dots are too small to be useful. The bank confirmed that it will address the problem, but didn't specify how or when.
