One of the biggest dreams of the blind throughout their lives is to cook by themselves, because cooking is a good way to improve self-regard. However, for the blind, cooking is not something that they would do casually for it causes inconveniences. In particular, the trickiest part for the blind when they cook is measuring accurately the amount of spices. For that reason, I propose spices and spices containers that would help the blind with spice measuring on their own. I make a spice paper tape that has quantified a spice. With the main ingredient of starch added to another ingredient, cellulose, I make a paper. Then, I work on Braille on the tape to help the blind easily understand the amount of the spice and cook with an accurate flavor.
