Under the current legislative framework for electronic communications, Member States have an important role in promoting equivalent access and choice for end users with disabilities. In the context of this report, “equivalence” means that equivalent access to and choice of electronic communications services should be available for end-users with disabilities. Notwithstanding, this may be accomplished by implementing specific solutions for end-users with disabilities, which are not necessarily coincident with the ones available to other end-users.The aim of this report is primarily to collate information from NRAs for the purposes of compiling an inventory of measures and initiatives that NRAs might consider when evaluating any action to be pursued under the terms of relevant legislative provisions.
