The checklist covers different types of disabilities. I think it should also include a question about the presence of accessible signs.

I would agree about the need for a question about accessible/alternative signage for people with disabilities. I would also include in the 'air quality' question something about temperature and the options for adapting it for personal needs. I would also include a question about safety precautions (grab bars in restrooms, handrails along walls, well-marked steps and curbs in and around the building, etc.).

"We cannot afford to let the issue of disabilities be simply an afterthought. We have a unique opportunity now, as industry pours billions of dollars into upgrading the communications infrastructure, to make sure that people with disabilities are not left behind. Now is the time. Accessibility of services and products for all Americans has got to be a design feature, not an add-on."
