Airport Accessibility

CHICAGO (AP) -- Travelers at Chicago's O'Hare and Midway international airports will soon see new accessible kiosks at the airports.

The wheelchair-accessible kiosks include a public access videophone, which lets travelers who are deaf or have difficulty speaking or hearing place a videophone call.

The kiosks also have a multilingual touch screen monitor with airport transportation information, and an overhead plasma monitor with information about the accessibility of Chicago's tourist attractions.

The Chicago Department of Aviation says nine of these units will be installed at O'Hare and two more are planned for Midway. The department says they'll begin installing the kiosks in the coming months and expect to have all the units in place by early 2008.
