In an exciting development made possible by the global reach of the Internet, E-Access Bulletin has begun to collaborate with an international network of blindness organisations to produce versions of the newsletter in different languages:
- Italian (Italiano), subscribe (abbonisi): email@example.com
- Archive: www.cavazza.it/eab .
- Portugese (Portugese), subscribe (subscreva): firstname.lastname@example.org
- Archive: www.gesta.org/eaccess/eaccess.htm .
- Spanish (Español), subscribe (suscriba): email@example.com
- Archive: [none].
Our first language partner was the Bologna-based Cavazza Institute, which is translating the bulletin into Italian each month. The institute is one of Italy's leading organisations in the field of blindness and the project is being led by its Director Mario Barbuto. Information on our Italian language version including an archive can be found at: www.cavazza.it/eab and to subscribe email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Subsequently we have been able to launch Portuguese and Spanish language versions. The Portuguese edition is being produced in association with GESTA (www.gesta.org), a sub-group of the Portuguese Association of Blind and Partially Sighted (ACAPO), with support from the Portuguese Guide Dogs Association. The project is led by Jorge Fernandes, special access adviser to the Portuguese government.
GESTA has members not only from Portugal but also from Brazil and the wider Portuguese-speaking world. The Bulletin's web site and archive can be found at: www.gesta.org/eaccess/eaccess.htm and to subscribe to the Portuguese version email email@example.com .
