These are over due… faster the better!
DOT should consider requiring airline carriers to interface all messeging information (apps, instant messeging, and a like) with personal mobilty devices. In this regards persons with hard of hearing, blindness and other ailments can be kept in form equally as well as those with out disabilies.
Carriers should be required to encorporate disability teams ( from the community and their staff)to by annually asses the entire travel ribon for accessibility barriers. These reports should be sent to DOT to help deconstruct the multiple enforcement agency responsibilities. DOT should rely on the access board airport technical guidline sheet.
All new kiosks should be based on universal principals, usibilty features and 508.
All retro fits should be in compliance with the universal approach. In practice seperate is not equal.
Thanks for your comment, bigdaddy, and welcome to Regulation Room. What types of personal mobility devices are you talking about? Could you tell us a bit more about what types of information you would like the airlines to send to these devices?
Thanks for your comment, bigdaddy. DOT has asked “Would it be valuable and feasible for DOT to require that airlines work with the disability community (by, for example, establishing a committee on website accessibility) to assist carriers in maintaining accessibility through periodic site monitoring and feedback?” in Section 3 of this post. Is this similar to what you are suggesting?
Thanks for your comment, bigdaddy. Other commenters have raised a similar point that separation may be stigmatizing for people with disabilities. Can you tell us more about the universal approach you suggested?
