In the US, many signs are regulated by The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). Macfarlane provides ADA-compliant braille printing.

While there are no consistent national standards for accessible signs in Canada, organizations such as Braille Literacy Canada, are working toward establishing guidelines and standards for the use of braille in Canada.

Braille Signs are used for:

• Stairwells and exits.
• Restrooms.
• Room names and numbers.
• Directional and elevator signs.

Braille can also be incorporated into promotional products, such as business cards, or cards used for membership or promotional campaigns.
