Saito Rie commented after the plenary 
session of the ward assembly.

Kita-ku, Tokyo:

After the first election in April, Saito Rie, a Deaf member of the ward assembly, stood for the first question in Kita-ku assembly plenary session on June 25. 

Using the audio-text software downloaded in her computer which was permitted to bring in the meeting, Saito questioned about promotion of the barrier free environment.

"We want subtitles to be put on the Ward's online public relations information," "The ward should put a fax in the patrol room of the ward at night for the Deaf person who can't use the telephone to ask emergency for help," etc.

The ward officials answered that they would study."
