My husband is visually impaired and cannot see the very small numbers/words that are normally around the dials of most appliances.We have some special sticky 'dots' made of rubber in bright flourescant colours that you can stick onto or round the dials of appliances to make it easier to select what you want. Pretty sure you can get them from the RNIB. Stick one on the knob where the arrow or line is and others over the settings most used. We've have them on the cooker and other things for years and they don't come off. There are lots of 'special' appliances available as for the blind but they are all hugely expensive, it is better to try to adapt ordinary ones of you can.
