Accessible Signage

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Description

Standards issued under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) address access to signs in buildings and on sites. These requirements address both visual and tactile accessibility and generally apply where signs are provided. The standards also require the provision of signs to indicate certain accessible features and elements. This session will review the scoping and technical provisions for signage in the ADA and ABA standards and highlight updates to the specifications.
