Copyright high court trial 21 September 2021 – 9 September 2021

Blind SA reflects on the ways in which the lack of access to reading materials has infringed upon the constitutional rights of people who are blind or partially sighted to equality, dignity, basic and further education, freedom of expression and participation in the cultural life of one’s choice. These rights are interconnected and their realisation cannot be further delayed!

Blind and partially sighted people’s basic human rights in accessing reading materials in accessible formats – braille, daisy (Digital Accessible Information System) and audio is still being violated despite Democracy since 1994.

#Brailleisnocrime – Section19D Copyright Amendment Bill promotes accessible formats.
