ABSTRACT
To solve the daily crisis of acquiring information with a disability, it is imperative to close the gap between what has been solved and what is being produced in the realm of media. Without access to media, people with disabilities will remain isolated and underemployed, and will lack basic requirements for good quality of life. Media producers, from individual authors to corporate distributors, must take an active, even urgent, approach to becoming up to date on this vital subject. For this special issue, the guest editors have selected five articles, each addressing an important topic related to accessibility of information.
