Leisure centres, libraries, parks, shopping centres and sporting venues - to name but a few - already use limited symbols in signage to direct and inform. Greater use of Widgit’s universally recognised set of symbols reduces the need for lengthy notices and explanations in these areas by providing an alternative to words.
Project Leader - "One of the most exciting and innovative parts of this project is the creation of the symbol / tactile signs. These symbols are such an asset to the non-verbal children who use the playpark and help them with their communication"
Sport & Recreation Officer - "The requirements of the Your Responsibilities document coupled with our own accessibility and equality policy allowed us to take an innovative approach to the design of the signage around our new leisure centre."
Head of Access for All, National Trust - "We hope that this project, which is unique in its scope for a garden, will make a real difference to visitors with a wide range of disabilities and can become a template for other National Trust gardens."
