Partially sighted people also use braille.

I did a search on this and found this posting on a forum

Saying us that are blind cant use a mirror? I have only one eye, I can see faces, I can not read words perfectly, thus is why there is braille, for people that are like me, hell I would have loved this when I was 8 I guess cause you can see, this means you never have to touch braille, I know a lot of people that just touch it and go "wow this is how the blind see" But you dont need it, I imagine you touching it and saying " Im too stupid to understand this"

During my time as a musician in the RAAF we used to do educational concerts at schools including on one occasion a school for deaf kids. This might sound stupid but is not. Deafness is not necessarily total and even totally deaf can feel vibrations. We had kids gathered around to feel the vibrations straight from the instrument.

I would imagine a partially sighted kid would get some pleasure from this. I could also imagine explaining to fully sighted child what these dots are and what braille is for. I don't really see a downside.
 
That's like when I got into a lift in a car park and each button for each floor was also in braille...a car park?????

My guess would be that almost every application of elevator buttons would be usable by blind or sight impaired folks. Since having braille poses no imposition on sighted people I would imagine that when a lift is installed they just buy one and don't bother to say hey can you leave the braille off.
