1997-3: Environmental Accessibility

WHEREAS environmental accommodations allow persons with visual disabilities access to the same information enjoyed by people who are sighted, and

WHEREAS there are individuals who have dual or multiple disabilities, for instance, both hearing and visual impairments, and

WHEREAS the majority of people experiencing vision loss are an older population, and

WHEREAS the skill level within the community of people who have visual disabilities varies greatly,
now therefore BE IT RESOLVED that the National Federation of the Blind: Advocates for Equality (NFB:AE) advocate and support the implementation of environmental accommodations such as audible traffic signals, tactile markings in areas of potential danger, and clear, legible and tactile signage.
