What is an APS?

Accessible Pedestrian Signal — a device that communicates information about pedestrian timing in nonvisual format such as audible tones, verbal messages, and/or vibrating surfaces (MUTCD, Section 4A.02).

Accessible Pedestrian Signal — A device that communicates information about the WALK phase in audible and vibrotactile formats (Draft PROWAG, R105.5).

How can an example as APS inspire a more accessible and holistic voting experience through nonvisual formats?
