Create small gardens of scented plants (herbs, flowers etc). Gardens can be in pots for urban areas.
Use different textured materials (not just smooth, cold metal) for surfaces like handrails.

Great! The lighting at such places could be limited and could be used only in case of emergencies. Even in gardens, people can be made to wear a blindfold so that the visually impaired do not feel selectively challenged.

Theater for blind people where the lack of sight is compensated by stimulation of the other senses.

Sorting stand-up comedy for visually-impaired friendly content

A service that would curate stand-up comedy for non-visual bits. Not filled with miming or "he looked like X" bits but more abstract or universal comedy. There's a blind guy in Serbia doing stand up comedy so this might draw more people from the visually impaired community to take it on too.
Just audio comedy albums are already a thing but are dying out because it's so cheaper to film now than in the past. Also, some of them do talk about visual things that most people can relate to despite the non-visual medium, so sorting is still needed.

Scents subscription box service

I thought of a perfume box subscription, alas those exist. But then I thought what about a basic scent box subscription. Maybe one item in the monthly would be a small branded perfume tester, while the others would be sheer scents from the world. Different flowers, spices, industrial smells... Maybe cards with info in braille. All scents come in vials of different sizes, with a holder for larger vials and wooden sticks so those can be used as room fresheners.

Tactile shoulder pads to stay in "touch" with a close friend or relative

The world is less scary or boring when you are always in touch with a friend, even if it's remotely.
Tactile shoulder pads that allow two people to communicate remotely via tapping. They tap or draw patterns on their own shoulders and the taps get recreated on the other person's shoulder pads.

A button on walking sticks to make a lightsaber sound effect would be fun.
