Many agencies that provide aids and services for people who are blind or visually impaired offer signature guides. These are metal, plastic or cardboard frames that are laid down, usually by a sighted person, to place a boundary around an area in which the blind person must place his/her signature.
If a blind person finds himself/herself in the position of needing to sign a name in a precise location without a signature guide available, a straight edge, such as a ruler, an index card, or a credit card edge can be placed below the line, so its edge can be felt and followed. Still another technique is to crease the document to be signed along the signature line. The ridge of the crease should face upward to make it easy to follow.
