The publication deals with the demands made on accessible guidance systems particularly by visually impaired and blind individuals and what they require to orient themselves self-reliantly in public spaces.
Furthermore, „Barrierefreiheit in Leit- und Orientierungssystemen – für sehbeeinträchtigte und blinde Menschen” (Accessibility in Guidance and Orientation Systems for Visually Impaired and Blind People) provides a condensed overview of the most important design fundamentals of such a guidance system. The compendium presents designers who have already realized projects with this special focus – and thereby the everyday practice of accessible design and the contribution of design to a world without barriers.
