How to Reserve Sighted Guides & Sign Interpreters Onsite

Requests for sighted guides or sign interpreters may be made onsite at the Accessible Materials & Services kiosk located in the registration area in the Adventure Hall Foyer. These are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to availability.

Onsite accessibility services are provided at no fee and are usually for a one-hour period. If you require a full-day sighted guide or sign interpreter assistance, we regret we are not able to provide these at the conference.

If you want an interpreter for the duration of the event, you can contact mail to
programs@atia.org for a list of referrals.
