Did you know that the talking traffic lights on street corners are officially called Audio Pedestrian Signals [or APS]? David Ayers, Eastern Region Sales Manager for Polara, and J.J. talk about the installation process and cost for equipping an intersection in this interview. There are a lot of things to consider before a city can add these devices to the traffic grid. To learn more, and find out how you can make a request for APS in your area, visit the Polara website.
Our 2018 summer convention coverage is sponsored by Google.
This week we're teaming up with our friends on the Google Accessibility team to talk about accessibility features within products like Android, Chrome OS, G Suite, Google Home, Assistant and more! Be sure to listen to our podcast series where we get the inside scoop, including the upcoming launch of Chat support and a 24 hour response time for the Disability Support team on July 9th.
The Google Accessibility team is also inviting everyone to participate in user research studies, where you can help shape the future of accessible products and features -- and get rewarded for it. Select here to sign up to participate and learn more at google.com/accessibility.
