The LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired originated in San Francisco over a century ago. Using modern technologies, it serves the visually impaired and blind community with a variety of programs. On the Golden Gate Bridge project, they are consulting on a range of accessibility issues, such as wayfinding aids used before and during a person's visit to the site, Braille translations, evaluation of a tactile display depicting the Bridge, and web-accessible information. 

Funding for the project has been provided by the Division of Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings, National Science Foundation. Dr. Al DeSena is the NSF project officer for this award.
