Tactile Indicators assist people with visual impairments with a system of tactile cues that assists them with identifying directional and hazard warnings.
In layman’s terms, they are usually a surface of raised dots to assist the vision impaired user that there is about to be a change in the surface to say, ” hey there’s a step here or a ramp, etc”.
Where do you use Tactile Indicators
Usually they are used to advise a vision impaired person of a warning or danger. Situations where this could occur are:
- The top and bottom of a stair case,
- Floors where a step changes a level,
- Ramp Gradients,
- Pedestrian Crossings,
- Railway Platforms,
- Elevator or Lift Entrances.
