This guide is intended to serve as a comprehensive reference for use by people who teach others to use the Talking Signs (registered trademark) system. Research has demonstrated that while independent travelers who are blind are able to learn to use the system via written instructions in accessible format, those who receive direct instruction for one half hour to two hours initially are more proficient in their use of the system. This guide makes available all the training techniques and strategies which have been found to be helpful in teaching adults to use the system. Additional suggestions are included which may be helpful for children, or for people having multiple disabilities.
