A Philippine state has declared a global language, disability and accessibility language for the disabled.
The proclamation by the Philippines National University of Arts and Sciences was made Monday.
The language will be a global version of the United States’ U.S. English language standard.
It is the second time the university has officially designated a language for disabled veterans.
The last was in 2010.
The move is part of a nationwide initiative to make the Philippines a global leader in terms of the development of the disabled community.
The president’s office said the Philippines is the first country in the world to declare a global languages disability, and that it will be the first in Asia to do so.
