When considering audible beaconing, it's important that a person doesn't hear the walk indication from the wrong place for the wrong phase. It may not be appropriate at locations with yield controlled right turns or split phasing. Some recent research indicates that it could work if only the volume of the locator tone, from the destination corner opposite end of the crosswalk where it is called, is boosted by the extended button press. It's also important to carefully adjust the speaker location and speaker volume. Mainly, walk signal must not be audible from a location to which it does not apply.
