[Accessibility] path designed for visually impaired

Hello List,
hello fabrice,

can you upload a photo for the wiki, please?
Can our native speakers propose a word how to tag that?

I think tactile_paving=yes is fine, but maybe we find a tactile_paving="whatever" that makes it even clearer.
I don't think this word exists, but it is like a ground rail, 

By the way, a handrail for outside is not very nice, because you will want to follow the tactile elements with the white cane, not with the hand.
So watch out if a handrail has an open or closed bottom
