WHAT IS BRAILLE SIGNAGE?
“Braille signage” refers to tactile ADA signs. Tactile ADA signs are legally required to mark all permanent building rooms or spaces and use braille per ADA sign requirements.
The acronym ADA refers to the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). ADA compliant signs and braille signs must meet requirements established by the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design (SAD). Federally regulated signage provides the 7.5 million Americans that are legally blind or visually impaired equal access to public spaces across the U.S.
