This guide is one of three documents that resulted from the project entitled "Transit Accessibility Improvement through Talking Signs Infrared Remote Signage: A Demonstration and Evaluation" funded by Project ACTION. The main activity of the project was installing Talking Signs in a tri-level transit station in San Francisco and testing their effectiveness in providing wayfinding information to visually impaired people. The guide is designed to provide the scope of information needed by transit property managers to evaluate, specify, purchase and install Talking Signs remote infrared signs in transit facilities for use by passengers who are visually impaired or print disabled.
