A Designer’s Guide to ADA Sign Compliance

A Designer’s Guide to ADA Sign Compliance

Strict regulation means that designers cannot merely estimate the size of the domes (dots) on Braille or guess the correct spaces between lettering and images. The rules have been introduced to ensure that people with disabilities have a consistent and easy-to-follow experience when navigating buildings.
