Hi Ray

If you have a visual impairment, I presume you are using a screen reader. I believe the RadioReference.com site should be compatible with the screen reader. They have a lot of frequencies including most railroad frequencies. My only complaint is that they sometimes don't take frequencies off the list when they are no longer in use.

Welcome to railroadfan.com.

Read what kind of maps online, Google maps? Looking for something to read aloud what's on the screen and have it speak to you?

So if i'm reading correctly, you can't see the maps on a small screen, but can see them fine on a huge screen.
Are you asking how to read an online map then? Trying to figure out what you are asking for help with.

I've gotta guess that if your vision isn't very good, I wouldn't suggest reading railroad maps or timetables on a tablet or on a cell phone. Use a PC with a large external monitor/TV to view it on.
Example: my hearing isn't very good, so I don't listen to audio on youtube videos from the tiny speaker on my cell phone... I use headphones that provide better clarity.

Ray, are you asking what the symbols mean, or something else? Are you looking at an ATCS display? Some clarification would be helpful.
