One of the concrete initiatives that have been taken thanks to the European Disability Strategy is the European Accessibility Act, which ensures that more products and services such as smartphones, tablets, ATMs and e-books are accessible to people with disabilities.
The Internet Accessibility Directive means that people with disabilities have easier online access to online data and services, as websites and apps run by public institutions such as hospitals, courts or universities must be accessible.
The Erasmus + student exchange program promotes the mobility of participants with disabilities.
EU rules also ensure improved access to transport and better passenger rights for people with disabilities.
