The definition of accessibility and what it entails varies significantly, depending on the disability group in question. The European Union of the Deaf (EUD) is a deaf-led organisation advocating for the rights of deaf persons on the European level. Therefore, this position paper will focus on deepening the interpretation of Article 9 (1)(b) of the UN CRPD from the deaf perspective. It will address specifically the topic of improving accessibility of information, communication and knowledge for deaf persons by adding more detail to it and updating it in light of new technological advancements.
