EBU produces guidelines, topical papers, and other informative material on a wide range of issues related to our community. The following selection of documents will be regularly updated.
The European Blind Union asks that information is accessible to anyone, including blind and partially sighted people, and at the same time and at no additional cost.
In this publication we focus on the accessibility of printed and electronic documents intended for a broad audience including websites, books, invoices, letters, leaflets etc.
The information is available in English, Dutch, French, German and Spanish.
This section contains links to other organizations and services that we believe will be helpful resources for blind and partially sighted persons as well as for anyone looking for information related to sight loss.
They are organised in specific categories.
