Thanks for that very good suggestion. I've had a brief look and there seem
to be a number of Belling models and some from a company I think is called
I also found a sight for the Disabled Living Foundation who highlight one of
the Belling models so I'll try to contact them next week.

Hmmmm RNIB should really be fighting our corner on this. Sadly there are
not many Induction hobs that are blind friendly which is a shame as
induction hobs are ideal for the blind with them being so safe. However, I
did manage to find two manufacturers that make induction hobs with rotary
controls Do a search in google for Induction hobs with rotary controls and
you will probably get results from the likes of Stoves and Belling.
