Please provide information on existing or planned measures for accessibility of information (captions, audio-description etc.) including measures taken to promote and recognize the use of sign language (para 67 of the State Party’s report). Reply: All SWB promotions through electronic media or digital discs are with captions, so that disabled persons can have easier access to information, also ensuring hearing impaired people to obtain the relevant knowledge. And to cope with the social development, the SWB will continue to strengthen its work in this area, by exploring more channels for hearing impaired persons to access public information. SWB subsidises NGOs to develop and promote the usage of sign language, and to hire sign language interpreters. To promote the usage of sign language, the SWB subsidies NGOs to organize sign language courses and attend international conferences. As for the promotion of sign language service, the SWB organized the legal course for sign language interpreters. The purpose is to provide the interpreters with more knowledge on legal issues so that they can explain to the deaf persons more clearly on legislative issues during interpretations, so as to safeguard their rights. The SWB also assigned additional financial resources to support the concerned NGOs to launch sign language interpretation during TV news as well as 24-hour sign language interpretation service. And whenever the SWB organizes any activities relating to persons with disabilities (such as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities), there will be interpreters to provide sign language interpretation services. In respect of facilitating the study and expression of opinions of disability students, according to Item VII, Section V, Chapter III, School Operation Guideline Year 2011/2012, published by the EYAB, it recommends providing students with special educational needs, an individualized education program and teaching outline, on top 74

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
