- Some stages in Galicia and other Comunidades Autónomas will have audioguide system for blind pilgrims.
- 70 defribillators are going to be provided in Xunta albergues (all of them).

Is it clear how ‘disabled’ is to be defined in this context?

No idea, but it's likely a variable -- France for example issues no disability card unless you are 80% handicapped + (AKA basically wheelchair-bound), even if you are recognised as a handicapped person and on benefits conditionally from being handicapped more than 50% as I am.

But I will bring along my French disability papers when I start again next year, even though they are written in the most arcane and bureaucratically impenetrable manner imaginable, likely to be viewed as gibberish by any sensible non-French person unfamiliar with French bureaucratic madness.

You need a card or similar to show to the hospitaler@ on arrival. They MAY skip this part if the handicap is obvious, like when you arrive in a wheel chair. If it is less obvious it is well worth having the card PLUS a translation of it!, at hand. BC SY
