Interesting development regarding print related disabilities in the UK.

Message from Mike Lewington, Vice Chair of R2R Alliance:
"This is a great achievement by the Right to Read Alliance to work with colleagues in the Copyright Licensing Agency and the Accessibility Action Group of the Publishers Association to achieve the new print disability licence. This new licence recognises the wider definition of print disability to include not just those people who have a visual impairment but also those with another disability that prevents them from reading books as easily as others. As one of the Vice Chairs of the Alliance, I would be very grateful if you could give this announcement the widest circulation."
