Disability Discrimination Commissioner Graeme Innes finishes his term at the Australian Human Rights Commission this month.
An open letter to Graeme:
Many thanks for all your support championing digital accessibility during your time with the Disability Rights Team.
We believe one of the biggest achievements in this space has been the inclusion of PDF techniques in WCAG 2.0. PDFs pose one of the greatest barriers for people accessing online information. The positive steps made by Adobe and the W3C following the publication of The Australian Government’s study into the Accessibility of the Portable Document Format for people with a disability have led to a vast change in the accessibility of this format.
It was the Commission’s unwavering support that led to this research being undertaken, which has benefited people with disability globally.
We wish you all the best, and hope we can keep working with you towards our collective goals in the future.
From Neil King and the Digital Access team.
