=New Space Accessibility= * Noisebridge's new location has ground floor doors and is half on the ground floor. * Plans for intra-floor communications via online access streaming should help people participate with things on the second floor easily. * Elevator access to the second floor is being explored. For the purposes of accessibility, an [[Electronics]] bench is downstairs in the hackitorium and a [[Sewing]] machine is available downstairs. == Current Accessibility Projects == * [[Elevator]] buildout is needed to make the [[second floor]] accessible to anyone who has trouble with the stairs. * [[Layout]] of areas and within areas needs to be improved to make as many [[Layout|areas]], [[resources]] and [[events]] as accessible as possible. * '''Accessibility culture''' can be made part of everything we do so that we can open our doors and our [[streaming]] to many more new and old participants. == Planned Accessibility Features == As we moved into [] and planned our buildout, we identified a lot of things we needed to do to improve accessibility. The [[Noisebridge Space Program/Accessibility]] page documents our efforts to ensure the new space is accessible. The following is a summary of some of the planned accessibility features. * '''Pathways:''' Critical pathways should be marked with taped lanes wide enough for accessibility vehicles and kept clear so all areas remain accessible. * '''Bathrooms:''' Bathrooms should be ADA accessible. ** Support bars should be in place and signage indicating the bathroom is wheelchair accessible. ** Automatic toilet button should be in place. ** Emergency call button should be in place. * '''Doors:''' Doors should be accessible for wheelchair users. ** Automatic doors will be looked into. ** Buzzers to request help with doors when those aren't in place. * '''Tactile Accessibility:''' We don't yet have any braille technology expertise but we can look into braille tech to help those who want to use it. * '''Audio Accessibility:''' Hearing aids could be stocked. * '''[[Privacy]]:''' [[Streaming]] signage will alert people to live streams. Cameras and microphones will be announced and marked with signage to allow anyone who does not consent to being recorded.
