Hi Joly - and all.
Just for clarification, the session at EuroDIG<https://eurodigwiki.org/wiki/Universal_Acceptance_%E2%80%93_a_technical_or_a_cultural_issue?_%E2%80%93_WS_15_2020> is not just about UA, but also about multilingualism and access by underserved communities. Room is given to the overall difficulties for users who are not native English speakers and not familiar with latin script, but there will be also a contribution from the representative of the Friulian community, that has its own language (it is not an Italian dialect, it is really a different language) - they will describe their presence in the native language and the importance for the cultural links that this entails.
So, definitively, an attempt to broaden the issue - and more from the users’ point of view.
