World Blind Union (WBU) updates

The latest World Blind Union (WBU) bulletin provides some important information, including the updates on Marrakesh Treaty that went into force in September last year. For the treaty to make a difference, a ratification in all countries are required. The treaty is important to increase access to books.

Other news include the European Parliament adoption of the ‘Directive on the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications of Public Sector Bodies’ (Web Directive). This means that all public authority websites and mobile applications, including electronic and multimedia publications, must be accessible.

Mobility International USA (MIUSA) has some useful tips to guide travellers when travelling with a guide dog or service animal.
