EBU Access Cast launched into cyber orbit!

On May 17th 2018 which corresponded to the Global Accessibility awareness day, EBU started a new way of communicating to listeners by launching new podcast about assistive technology. The EBU Access Cast is a new monthly show, which specifically focuses on news and reviews from the assistive tech industry from a European prospective.
