Most of us take using elevators for granted. But what if you couldn't read the buttons or see which floor you're on? Braille markings, mandated by law, have helped people who are blind use elevators, but not everyone with vision loss knows how to read braille. A few small adjustments can make elevators easier to use for people with vision loss. We are currently witnessing the development of the next generation of accessible elevator interfaces, and AFB TECH continues to follow the progress of these important new technologies.
