ISO 19029:2016 also specifies the design or usage of the equipment that provides auditory guiding signals.

ISO 19029:2016 does not specify the characteristics of the alerts, such as alarm sounds or emergency signals.

NOTE 2 The auditory danger signals are covered by ISO 7731.

ISO 19029:2016 does not specify the characteristics of auditory guiding signals coming from the personal mobile equipment that is worn by persons with seeing impairment and blindness.
