ADA SpeakMaster

MDI Traffic Control Products, working extensively with DOTs, local governments, and private industries, has developed a breakthrough in pre-warning technology for visually impaired pedestrians. The ADA SpeakMaster™ is an audible warning device that alerts pedestrians of a sidewalk closure ahead and provides navigation instructions.

Audible Warning Device Details

The all-aluminum ADA SpeakMaster stands 5' 6" high, is completely weather resistant, and ADA compliant. The two-sided frame at the top has snap-open side rails to easily change custom signs. The frame can rotate 360° to accommodate different site conditions.

The unit is powered by an extended-life battery stored in a key-locked compartment in the base, which can be weighted for added stability and security. The electronics are housed in a separate key-locked compartment in the upright section, and messages can be programmed on-site via USB. The base tilts and rolls on hidden wheels.

How the SpeakMaster Works

The ADA SpeakMaster is positioned approximately 100 feet before the actual sidewalk closure. As the pedestrian approaches, he hears a unique locator tone which is familiar to the visually impaired. The tone can be programmed to play continuously or activate by an optional motion sensor, and indicates that there is more information. The pedestrian locates the push button and activates the voice module to hear navigation instructions. He can then safely pass through the temporary pedestrian accessible route.
MDI’s cutting-edge ADA SpeakMaster is another step toward the ADA tenet of
“making it possible for everyone with a disability to live a life of freedom and equality.”
