The U.S. Access Board is making its series of DVDs on sidewalk accessibility available through its web site.

The board developed Accessible Sidewalks as a four-part video to illustrate issues and considerations in sidewalk design. 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. Viewing the videos requires a recent version of Flash player, which can be downloaded free from Adobe.

The series on DVD still is available free from the board. To order a copy, send a request for the Accessible Sidewalks DVD with a mailing address to pubs@access-board.gov, or call (202) 272-0011, voice, or (202) 272-0082 (TTY).
