Sydney Is Working On Introducing Braille Street Signs


traveling independently for those of us who can't read the street sign either means having accessible GPS or memorizing where we are. Knowing where you are is an important skill, but it would also be useful if the street sign was accessible. The city of Sydney is currently testing out a prototype of their new street signs which will feature braille and raised letters. They are working with blind citizens to make sure that the signs are readable and that they will be placed in consistent locations on intersections. This change could make travel more safe and appealing to those with vision loss.
