Philosophy Friday: Audible Pedestrian Signals

Accessible pedestrian signals are designed to provide nonvisual indications about when the walk signal at an intersection is on. This topic is one that is often fraught with considerable discussion and varied opinions. Over the years, a variety of designs have been implemented: from buzzers, clicks, beeps, and now to recorded human speech. Curtis Chong, Scott LaBarre, and Dan Burke will discuss the technological, political, and legal issues related to this technology and the reasons why these devices are not installed at every signalized intersection.
