Signed Inclusion

Businesses better accommodate people with hearing impairments

Implications - Whether for employees, customers or both, brands are better adapting to the needs of people with hearing impairments by creating environments in which employees and/or customers can communicate in sign language. By enhancing communication between employees and customers in this way, these brands are setting a precedent for how retail design can work to remove barriers to inclusion.
