How many visually impaired people do you think live in the Greater Houston Area? If you don’t have a visual disability yourself, it’s hard to imagine how difficult it must be to navigate a big city like Houston with limited or no vision. However, even smaller towns like Spring Branch and Memorial City can be just as challenging to navigate for the visually impaired. If there’s something you could do to help them, wouldn’t you?
What is an ADA Compliant Sign?
It is also a national law that in specific locations and areas you have ADA compliant signs because it is the law. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. That fundamental law has also inspired subsequent state and municipal laws. You need ADA compliant signs with braille and big, bold, easy to read text; otherwise you could be fined.
Benefits of Choosing for ADA Compliant Signs
As a business owner or manager, there is something you can do to help them; you can put up ADA compliant signs. Not only will this help the visually impaired navigate your place of business, but it will also help you because, without ADA compliant signs, you won’t have their business. The National Institutes of Health estimate the number of legally blind people in America at around one million. In Texas alone, over 700,000 people are living with visual disability of some kind, according to the National Federation of the Blind. Now imagine how many of those people live in the Greater Houston Area.
