Republic of Korea – 2012

Delegate: Ms. Yoo Ji - yoon

67. Ms.Yoo Ji-yoon (Republic of Korea), speakingas a youth delegate, said that more effort was needed to improve access to information for persons with disabilities. The Republic of Korea had one of the highest rates of Internet use in the world, but web accessibility was 20 per cent lower for persons with disabilities than for others. The Government was striving to provide information in formats such as Braille and sign language, but it was the very structure of information which should change. That called for considerable resources, public-private partnerships, academic research and public awareness.
