Shanghai eliminating barriers for disabled residents

By Hu Min

Shanghai is eliminating barriers for disabled people with various efforts underway and remarkable progress achieved, the 8th Congress of the Shanghai Disabled Persons' Federation heard on Wednesday.

All administrative service centers in the city have provided remote video sign language interpretation service, and more than 8,000 exclusive parking spaces for the disabled have been established at public venues across the city over the past five years.

A total of 2,600 people with visual impairment were provided with intelligent assisting devices during the same period.

The aim is to create an all-round barrier-free environment for the disabled, the federation said.
