1. States should recognise that accessibility is indeed a vital precondition for persons with disabilities to exercise their right to freedom of expression independently, fully and on an equal basis with others. They should addressed accessibility in all its complexity, including media and digital technologies and services; and denial of access should be considered to constitute a discriminatory act, regardless of whether the perpetrator is a public or private entity.
  2. Accessibility should be taken into account in all aspects and issues addressed in these Principles; it should be provided to all persons with disabilities, regardless of the type of impairment, their legal or social status, gender, age, or any other status.
