On Freedom of Cultural and Artistic Information and the Use of Own Talents

The paper deals with freedom and free access to books, and shows the (im)possibilities regarding the access of information, be it in the world of books or in the general area of fine arts. Only the facts themselves show the true state of people whose freedom was taken from them through handicap. Several cases from Slovenia as well as from abroad try to depict the true state without any embellishment. The facts presented, however, should serve as a reflection of what is already carried out and what should be improved in the future. It emphasizes the need to educate a new generation of special educators who should learn about the world of disabled people on the ground of new concepts that appreciate the other (or different) as a supplement of their own uniqueness or unique individuality, respectively. The author also expresses hope for the future improvements regarding the accessibility of digital media for the visually impaired on the grounds of the treaty for the blind and visually impaired, signed by the World Blind Union in Marrakesh. The treaty obliges the United Nations to make appeal to the countries regarding the legal accessibility of digital documents for the blind and was presented in detail in Rikoss, the newspaper published by the Association of the Blind and Visually Impaired of Slovenia.
