Braille & Tactile Signage
Braille and Tactile Signage
A Braille character is made up of 2 columns of 3 dots. This method permits the production of 256 unique combinations, which is enough to represent all of the characters within an alphabet. Braille has been developed into a large set of alphabets with almost every language in the world having its own form.
The Disability Discriminations Act states
“….. physical changes and adjustments to buildings that allow access and information, should be made to all buildings by 2004….”
The Joint Mobility Unit, together with the RNIB, recommend that all public buildings and service providers, including hotels, public transport and municipal buildings should use Braille and tactile signage for their projects.
Photocast can provide advice and an artwork service that can produce quality internal and external Braille and tactile signage.
