NEW ORIENTATION AND ACCESSIBILITY OPTION FOR PERSONS WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENT: TRANSPORTATION APPLICATIONS FOR REMOTE INFRARED AUDIBLE SIGNAGE

This research project details a transit station installation in which acceptable performance levels for Talking Signs wayfinding technology were determined, developed, and tested. The amount of training needed to use the system, its impact on performance and safety, benefits for different population sub-groups, and user opinions of the system's value were examined. Findings indicate that blind people can quickly and easily learn to use remote infrared audible signage effectively and that its use improves travel safety, efficiency, and independence.
