Dear EOWG,

Ref: <http://www.un.org/disabilities/default.asp?id=210>

You may be interested to know that 20 Countries have now ratified the UN 
Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, so that it will 
formally enter into force in May 2008. I think this is a great step in 
promoting an understanding of equal access to information to be a basic 
human right.

Best,
   Shadi
