Extract from The Information Society (Dis)Abilities Challenge (ISDAC):

 "We are at the beginnings of the Information Society, and it is now time to
make it accessible to all European citizens, the same way as new buildings
provide ways to overcome barriers in their design stage. ISDAC is a
challenge put together by people with disabilities (PwD) who believe that
full participation by PwD can and should be driven by PwD, with support
from society through the European Union and the Governments of the Member
States and from their non-disabled friends. We are challenging Europe and
its nations to make the Information Society fully accessible to people with
disabilities (PwD), and challenging people with disabilities to demonstrate
their abilities in an Information Society context by playing an active role
in building a fully accessible Information Society in Europe."
