Agents Lead Efforts to Make Travel More Accessible

The deaf have different challenges, according to Peggy Prosser of D-Travel in Rochester, N.Y.

“When it comes to wheelchair users the tourism sectors can easily add ramps, and for blind people they add Braille or give audio devices at famous landmarks,” Prosser said.

But she laments the fact that there are usually no sign language interpreters available for deaf travelers. “It seems to me that because of the unavailability of services for deaf travelers, we are either forgotten or ignored.”
