The text of the treaty for visually impaired is still secret (why?)
but these 3 interviews give quite a bit of information about what is
going on (or not going on?).  Sadly, it looks as if once again, the US
administration (USPTO) is the blocking force (as well as insisting the
text negotiated earlier remain a secret).
