Digital Access

Who we are

Digital Access at Vision Australia is recognised internationally as an industry leader in the provision of digital accessibility services, equally addressing the needs of all disability groups. Specialising in web accessibility consultancy, training and testing, our services are expertly designed to help our customers make their digital presence accessible to all.

Our advice and training is based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0, formulated by the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Accessibility Initiative (W3C WAI). A member of the W3C since 2002, Digital Access significantly contributed to the creation of WCAG 2.0.

As a social enterprise, the fee-based services provided by Digital Access directly support Vision Australia’s wider activities. Our unique position working within a disability organisation ensures that end-users’ real world requirements are foremost in all the services we deliver.

What are we up to?

We’ve been awarded $34,158 as part of the ACCAN 2014 Grants Scheme!

ACCAN received 85 submissions this year, many from leading research organisations. Our project was selected as one of only seven to receive funding this year.

The concept for our submission was the development of a Document Accessibility Toolbar (DAT) – a standard add-in for Microsoft Word so that every person who creates a Word document has access to a range of automated tools for easy implementation of accessibility techniques.

Free to download, the DAT will not only make accessible document creation easier, it will make government and industry more accountable, and strengthen people’s rights to advocate for content accessibility. Ultimately, the DAT will ensure equal access to information for people with disability.

We’re thrilled to be leading a project that has the potential to make such a positive impact! Subscribe to our e-newsletter to keep in touch with our progress.
