As we write this, the United Nations is celebrating ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which promotes all kinds of things dear to our hearts, including the need to “Work on and encourage new technologies in all aspects of life that are useful for people with disabilities, especially those that are low cost” and “Provide information about all types of assistance, including technologies, and other forms of assistance, in a way that can be understood by people with disabilities.” Ratification came pretty quickly; we’ll send good vibes that first efforts towards implementation do as well.
