A campaign by Access Israel designed to remind politicians that making their speeches accessible to all is not an option but their duty.
The Israeli elections were in full swing to take place in April 2019. This meant that every day another politician went on air – broadcasting live the one more dramatic announcement after the other. Unfortunately, thousands of hard-of-hearing people in Israel could not follow the live events.
Hence, while Elections are a democratic process which by their very nature should be accessible to all, sadly, in times of elections when politician are trying to appeal to the very largest demographics, nothing could be further from their minds than making the elections accessible to the relatively small group of hearing impaired.
