(Click on the links to discover some of the ways in which symbols are used.)
Wherever information is conveyed in text form, it can be made more accessible through the use of symbols. It would be impossible to list all the applications, but as an example a restaurant might add symbols to its menus to describe dishes as vegetarian or warn that they contain nuts. There might be symbols on the pricelist, toilet doors and emergency exits. What’s more, symbols do not discriminate: symbols are used by everyone, in all walks of life, regardless of reading ability.
We are constantly advising people on how they can use symbols in their working environments and would be happy to visit you to make an assessment of how your workplace could become more inclusive and accessible through the use of symbols.
