Information from secretariat  Please note that the meetings of the 23rd session of the Committee will be held virtually through the Interprefy online platform. The session will consist of public opening and closing meetings as well as private meetings for Committee members. You can observe these public meetings on UNWebtv. If you have registered in advance as a speaker during the public meetings, you will receive a link to Interprefy. The current version of Interprefy is regrettably incompatible with JAWS screen reader software and you may have to request the assistance of a person of your choice to participate in the meeting. We have been told that Chrome Vox is compatible with Interprefy, but also note it may destabilize your computer. We sincerely thank you for your understanding and hope that you will be able to participate in the meeting with the support required to facilitate the navigation of the platform.   INT/CRPD/INF/23/31802 False93
