Visually impaired people cannot enjoy the facilities prevailing in our society due to the fact that they cannot see and hence many a times become prey to different dangers and hazards. But they have been provided equal rights by ADA law which has made it necessary to install braille signs for such people who have this disability. With the help of these signs the visually impaired people can easily and conveniently reach anywhere they wish avoiding all hazards. These signs are a series of raised dots that represents text permitting the visually impaired person to scan the dots by simply touching them.

These dots represent the different letters in the alphabets, numbers, words and symbols. With the help of these dots, impaired person can easily decode the message displayed. These signs are specially meant to help such people and make them feel a part of the society. These signs reflect love and care for impaired and they also feel more independent and can travel anywhere freely without any help.

These signs are installed in public buildings and provide information to the vision impaired regarding the location of various areas and amenities inside and outside the building. These signs have a reflective background which makes them easier to read for the visually impaired. Raising the letter sizes can make these signs more readable even from far away distance. But there are certain requirements which should meet the standards for installing them in the building as per the law and regulation. The pictures on these signs should be 6 inches tall and should have a straight forward character showing the message. The message should also be in Braille. These signs should lie sixty inches above the floor so that they are accessible 3 inches from the wall to the person who’s reading it.

These signs are important in order to assist the visually impaired to access different areas of the building with complete safety. These signs are available in different colors to match the décor and can easily be purchased online. They can even be customized as per business requirements and can be decoded easily.
