People with disabilities work on the digitalization of Brazilian Federal Supreme Court's documents

A group of 234 people with disabilities, most of them with hearing impairment, are currently working on procedures involving the digitization of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court's (STF) cases. The measure is part of the social inclusion program developed in the Supreme Court in an agreement signed with the Association of Special Physical Education Training Center (Cetefe), for the digitization of judicial and administrative proceedings, functional records, medical records and documents of the Citizen's Central .

In total, more than 300 professionals with physical, hearing, intellectual, visual and autism spectrum disabilities will work, during the six-month period, in two shifts (morning and afternoon), in the hygienization, digitalization and document management of more than 97 million pages of the Court's physical files.


The STF has among its guidelines the promotion of social inclusion and develops the STF Without Barriers Program, a permanent Court's initiative that aims at the physical spaces of the Court adaptation to receive the most diverse publics.

Accessibility also occurs through other measures, such as the translation into the Brazilian Sign Language (LIBRAS) of the STF's plenary sessions, wich are also transmitted through Justice TV with audiodescription, and guided visits to the Court, using sign language as well.
