    City council issues 'inclusive' taxi driver licence applications... in BRAILLE

    Local governments have in the recent past made admirable attempts to be more culturally inclusive by printing official documents in various languages.
    However, one city council might have let its enthusiasm run away with itself - by printing taxi-driver licence applications in braille.
    In a move that is almost certainly the first of its kind, the forms can also be printed and downloaded in large print or audio format people with sight problems.
    A note on the Portsmouth City Council website says the documents can be downloaded in large print, Braille or audio.
    The Lib-Dem controlled local authority defended the decision.
    'Obviously, a taxi driver would not need the Braille version, but they might find a foreign language version helpful,' a spokesperson told The Sun.


    'The form is also for employers to fill in - they could need a Braille version,' she added.
    The city council is also a member of the Plain English Campaign.
