Hi,

This story is moving along quickly. I brought it to the attention of the
Convener of the Accessibility and Human Rights group within the ITU, which
is the UN body which develops telecommunications standards. She has now
brought it to the attention of the Director of the ITU Telecommunications
Standardisation Bureau with a view to contacting Samsung. Let's see if this
goes any further.

Thanks again to Josh for raising this.


Take care,

Gerry Ellis

In a very cynical move South Korean firm Samsung has recently sought an 
injunction in a German court arguing Apple's VoiceOver screen-access 
facility infringed one of its patents. [1]

Well worth a read, and indeed IMHO encourages you to think twice before 
buying any more of their products.

Cheers

Josh
