To enhance bus use for all passengers an inclusive approach to
information provision needs to be adopted. To this end research was
undertaken to identify improvements to display design which would be of
benefit to all passengers. Members of the public participated in the
research including people with a range of visual impairments including
Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Retinitis Pigmentosa and Cataracts.
The different forms of display technology were assessed under day and
night conditions in terms of reading distances, reading time and viewing
angles as well as participant opinions.
This is an Official Report for the Department for Transport.
