In our daily lives, we come across numerous different types of signs. The intention behind using one sign varies totally from the use of another one. These signs come to human aid as these convey a lot of meaningful messages to us. From informing us about the dangers and emergency situation, it also helps us to be organized in traffic movement or other places. People who are visually impaired or facing any other types of physical challenges, these signs are extremely useful as it makes life easier for them. They needn’t be dependent on others and can easily move around using their walkers or wheelchair, boosting their confidence to a vastly. These signs are known to all as ADA braille signs. A typical example of such signs is the wheelchair sign in front of the restrooms. It clearly portrays to all that a particular restroom is specially built for the physically weak people. Other such signs are viewed in front of staircases, escalators, no smoking zones etc.

ADA stands for American with Disabilities Act. There are certain guidelines that one needs to follow while setting up the ADA Braille signs. For any business organization it’s necessary to set up at least three such signs or else he won’t be allowed to carry on his business. Some of the key things to bear in mind are the background should be reflective enough so that the visually challenged people find it easier to read. The letters should be slightly uplifted from their surface as this helps the words to be read easily from a distance. The pictures used on the ADA Braille signs should be at least six inches tall and also be a minimum 60 inches above the ground to have a vivid visibility from faraway. Following these guidelines are necessary as they allow the disabled people to read them properly or the very purpose of establishing those signs goes in vain.
