New York taxis to be accessible to the visually impaired


The New York City Council passed a measure in late November requiring New York City taxis to be accessible to the visually impaired. Cabs will now be required to have adaptive software that speaks the fare throughout the duration of a ride, and at the final destination. This measure offers more independence to visually impaired riders who, until now, have had to rely on others to honestly tell them the amount of cab fare owed.
