They added braille. Okay it's cluttered, but it seems better putting  
them next to the buttons rather than on them so you don't press a dozen  
while searching for your floor.

Bolting "accessibility" onto an existing design is usually a recipe
for disaster.  You have to design with accessibility in mind, from
the start.

Note the large white (illuminatable) legends adjacent to the lowest
5 buttons don't seem to have braille translations *nor* indications
for folks unable to perceive light/dark ("Miss, could you please tell
me if this is ILLUMINATED?")

Of course, the *appearance* is the only thing that is disturbing;
a sighted user wouldn't waste much time pressing on a non-operational
LEGEND (instead of the adjoining button.  The vision impaired user
wouldn't notice the duplicity of labels as the panel would appear as
a braille label adjacent to a button (only the sighted user sees
two labels!)

If you're vision impaired, what good would labels be?  And, if you're
vision impaired, you might NOT know braille! (think M.D. due to age,
diabetic retinopathy, etc. -- are you going to bother learning braille
in your 60's?  Or, if you have peripheral nerve damage from diabetes??)
