Signs play a valuable role in the design of any public space. However, their value does little good for the millions of Americans who are blind and visually impaired if basic accessibility guidelines are ignored.  This webinar session will go over the key steps toward assuring proper guidelines are met for appropriate accessible signage.

Presenter: Anthony Stephens, director of advocacy and governmental affairs for the American Council of the Blind, will be on-line to provide key information for an architectural barrier that is unfortunately as easy to overlook as it is to remedy.
