Invisible accessibility at the entrance. Some places apparently do not have accessibility. As they only show steps and staircases. However. In some of them. There is an accessible entrance. But it is in a practically hidden place. There are places where the accessible entry option is through side doors or at the back of the establishment. Which can be far from the main entrance. Accessibility regulations say that the accessible alternative entrance must be located no more than 50 meters from the main entrance. There are establishments that take advantage of the service entrances. Which are usually located on these side doors or at the back. Where loading carts usually enter and therefore have a ramp.
So quite unpleasant for a visitor
The establishment has an entrance Bulgaria Phone Number List built especially for accessibility and within the maximum distance required. Which is the case of the jewish museum of são paulo . Where the video below was filmed and which we will use as a reference. So far it seems a perfect scenario. If it weren’t for the issue that this entrance is not free. As is the access by stairs. As the accessible entrance is through a lifting platform that is behind a closed door. So it is necessary call an employee to open it. The problem is that there is no way to call an employee. Like a doorbell for example. By chance. An employee came out and saw me. And realized my intention to enter. But usually in similar cases. I have to ask for help from someone walking down the street to get in and call an employee.
Many are only concerned with the physical structure
Or else call the establishment and let them know that i’m in front. There are alternatives. But that’s not how the place USA CFO should be prepared. Another detail is that this optional entrance was not signposted. So you only see the staircase at the main entrance. And you don’t know that there is an accessible entrance. It’s this kind of hidden entry. Which i call invisible accessibility. And in this situation. The visitor who needs accessibility. May be disappointed for apparently not having found accessibility and leave. Giving up on the visit. And then still speak ill of the conditions of the place. All this for lack of correct signage . What i want to reinforce. And i always put it in several examples that i give. Is that accessibility needs to be functional.
