European Parliament makes reading materials more accessible to blind and visually impaired peopleThursday, 06 July 2017 16:34
This problem is now resolved. Blind people and organisations that defend their interests will no longer need to seek permission from copyright holders to make their books, newspapers and other works available in a suitable format. They will also be able to read or listen to works from other countries more easily.
On Thursday, the European Parliament approved the legislative amendment negotiated with the member states in May. They will be able to offer small compensation to publishers whose books are adapted in formats accessible to the blind.
