A measure to improve access to taxis for the visually impaired will take effect next May.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed the legislation on Wednesday.
It requires that taxi payment technology include an auditory component. That way, visually impaired passengers will hear their fare from a machine, rather than simply taking the driver's word for it.
The equipment will also tell passengers how to pay with a credit card if they wish to do so.
