Message by Marianne Thyssen on European Accessibility Act

27 057 views

On 2 December 2015, Marianne Thyssen, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility, recorded a message in Brussels on Accessibility Act. Her message was translated in live in sign language. The European Commission proposed a European Accessibility Act, which set common accessibility requirements for certain key products and services to help people with disabilities in the EU. The products and services covered have been carefully selected in consultation with citizens and civil society organisations as well as businesses. They include cash machines and banking services, personal computers, telephones, television and audiovisual services, transport, e-books and e-commerce. The initiative will stimulate innovation and increase the offer of accessible products and services for around 80 million persons with disabilities in the EU.
