The Ron McCallum speeches on blind technologies look at innovations made in the last century to help the visually impaired read, while also looking to the future and other challenges blind people face. Visually impaired himself, McCallum's success as a lawyer, educator, and advocate for blind people is in large part due to technologies like tape recorders, voice synthesizing programs and computer scanning.
The legal academic previously served as a professor and dean of law at the University of Sydney. In 2008 he was elected to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which monitors compliance with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, where he currently acts as chair. The Ron McCallum speeches mention a conference taking place in Morocco to discuss legal barriers to book reproduction for the blind.
