A series of videos on sidewalk accessibility previously available on DVD can now be viewed through the Board's website. Accessible Sidewalks is a four-part video developed by the Board to illustrate issues and considerations in the design of sidewalks. The series covers access for pedestrians with mobility impairments, including those who use wheelchairs, and pedestrians who are blind or have low vision. The videos are open captioned and incorporate running descriptive audio. A recent version of the Flash player, which can be downloaded free from Adobe, is needed to view the videos.
