Dear Accessibility Board,
This is written in haste, as I am heading for Bend tomorrow to attend the 2002
convention of the American Council of the Blind of Oregon.
Yesterday I participated in the crossing of eight streets, location unknown,
after which I answered several questions for reach. I worked with Janet and
Beezie. They mentioned that a letter of support for audible signals might be
appreciated. It seems to me that they mentioned a date of October 18 as being a
deadline; however, our convention is not until the eighteenth. This may be
totally unuseful, but we have been involved with the audible signal program from
the beginning and plan to keep enthusiastic all the way.
Thank you for understanding the sequence of events. I hope these signatures will

Re: Audible signals
We, the undersigned, acknowledge the incalculable value of audible signals for
blind, visually impaired, as well as countless other individuals. As pedestrians
we can travel about with more freedom and confidence while involved in daily
living. As congestion of streets continues to increase, so does the role of
audible signals in ease of mobility.
Thank you for your continued interest.
