Talking boxes for signs to help the visually impaired

With work underway for the latest addition to Harrisburg University, the school wants to make sure that everyone is safe, both driving and walking by the construction.

Signs have been posted for both cars and pedestrians around the construction.

One unique feature will greatly help visually impaired folks walking near the work.

"We provided audio boxes that provide verbal warnings to the visually impaired to warn them that hey there's an issue in front of you and the sidewalk's closed," says Eric Darr, Harrisburg University.

The newest facility is expected to open in late 2008.
