Which is the best solution?

Move the labels next to the port, or color code the ports?

Photo (marked A.) of labels moved adjacent to computer ports so there is a direct relationship between port and label Photo (marked B.) of computer ports color coded red and green to match the color of the mouse and keyboard labels


  • The reason it is better is due to the accessibility of the solution.

  • Really, the best solution would also have Braille with the label adjacent to the port.
