Hi,

Maybe

(c) Reaffirming the universality, indivisibility, interdependence and
interrelatedness
of all human rights and fundamental freedoms and the need for persons with
disabilities to be guaranteed their full enjoyment without discrimination

Should be something more like, "to be guaranteed their full activity"?

Because the question is not how pleasurable the Internet is to use, but is
rather whether or not the world that is created by the Internet allows or
disallows the full functioning of people with disabilities who find
themselves within that world.

Cheers,

Edward
