Terminology and other language and content resources for eAccessibility and eInclusion

In view of the urgency of the issue and the high number of CRDP signatories, UNESCO and other international organizations have designed policies complying with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Its impact is visible in the legislation of countries and regions, for instance, in the form of

   - Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of the United States;
   - Mandates 376, 420 and 473 of the European Union on European particularly covering
     accessibility requirements in the ICT domain.

The impact of CRDP started to extend also to standardization activities with respect to content, for instance, within the framework of eProcurement.
